La Sughera is everything we wanted it to be. Traveling with our friends, two other couples: one from Latvia, one from UK, we're Americans, we found that all our expectations for spending two weeks in Italy were met. The villa was lovely, decorated in an international country house style. The interior was soothing, not fussy and there are plenty of places to stretch out and relax without being on top of each other. The kitchen is amply supplied with all the dishes, cutlery and utensils you could ever need, but most importantly, for those who want a respite from the kitchen, the gracious Vanda, will prepare typical Tuscan fare which will have you swooning under the glorious dining terrace.
But the best part is the pool and it's gorgeous vistas and the absolutely perfect pool furniture...no need to ever move; we all felt like we were in a movie set. Every day we planned an outing, and everyday we decided to stay and just enjoy the beauty of the views, from porches, balconies and dining areas, and the lovely pool.
We finally made some visits to Lucca ( historic ) , Pietrasanta ( artsy ) and Forte di Marmi ( ritzy ) and we were glad we did. Each town was incredibly different and easily done as a day trip: we loaded up on yummy foods, bought great shoes and fell in love with some unique sculpture; just a bit too heavy to fit in our luggage.
I highly recommend this perfect villa as a lovely place to tailor your perfect vacation to your desires.
