This is the 3rd time we stayed at this property over the years. It is owned and run lovingly by a local family. The property is peaceful, spotlessly clean, and well-maintained. Owners were extremely hospitable and caring. With horse and sheep in the backyard, grapes and olive trees, you have the feel of a farm, but with the city of Lucca only 15 minutes away, as well the coast and Florence not too far away for day-trips. Owners were just a phone call away and they visited property to clean pool etc., but were never in the way.
At check-in we were met by the Owner and given instructions on the house. There was also a box in the Living Area with local maps, attractions, and itineraries. We like to shop at the local markets and cook and the kitchen was well-equipped, including an interior wood-burning pizza oven, multiple types of coffee makers, a full-size refrigerator and a backup one.
There is a huge Dining Room table as well as a large dining area outside.
I highly recommend this home, for any size group. This time we were 2 families, with a total of 4 adults, and 5 teenager/young adults. The pool area is fully fenced off for small children, and we stayed here when our children were younger as well. There is also a large grassy area in the backyard to play soccer, and 2 mountain bikes. With our 9 total there was plenty of space to spread out. We could have easily accommodated the 15 beds if need with privacy for all.
We have rented other properties in Italy and I give this property an Outstanding grade. In summary, I didn't want to leave!
