Overview

San Ginese Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-11)

Set in wooded seclusion in a very peaceful and panoramic position at only 13 kilometers from the historic walled town of Lucca and the sandy beaches of the Versilia coast, this charming home VILLA LOPPY, dated back 1603, commands magnificent views of the nearby hillsides and valley

The property has been sensitively converted, resulting in a combination of comfort and traditional Tuscan convenience, retaining the original beamed ceilings and using antique cotto floor tiles.

A striking feature of the property is the antique fortified garden which enclose the pool and a bastion with a dome of jasmine plants beautifully integrated into the sloping olive groves and woods. The lovely patio ideal for ‘al fresco’ dining. The are several dining areas in the garden. Our gardener cleans the garden and the pool every day.

The house, approx. 350 sqm large, consists of two floors:

GROUND FLOOR Entrance into a triple living room with french windows overlooking the garden and the pool, dining room opening onto a patio with dining facilities and table and chairs, ideal for al fresco dining, fully equipped kitchen, 1 double bedroom with king size bed, 1 bathroom with built-in shower.

FIRST FLOOR: 4 double bedrooms (2 with king size bed and 2 with 2 twin beds each), 1 bathroom with grand built-in shower.

In the garden there is also another little house with a huge living room with cycler, tapis roulant and pool table.

We only rent the whole property to 1 party per time so privacy is never compromised

I couldn't recommend it enough!

I couldn't recommend it enough!

We stayed at the property in late September 2014. Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The Villa was beautifully done. Bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen large, the living spaces spacious and more than enough for everyone. The house was immaculate. The grounds were beautiful, the garden was romantic and elegant with many lemon trees and the gazebo on the top of the fortress surrounding the property with a breathtaking view. The pool was a welcome relief in the afternoon and well used by our children. We were also blessed with a lovely owner available for our request and always met with a big smile.

Sonia, the host, was outstanding. She was like a personal concierge. She helped arrange anything we needed during our excursions thru Tuscany. Advice on best places to see, best spots to park, best restaurants to visit. This is my 8th visit to Italy, but I saw it through new eyes. This note is just to say how much we loved our stay in Villa Loppy. This Villa was the PERFECT way to appreciate Tuscany: it's location, the views, and especially the hospitality, It is a magical place! We loved every moment. A million thanks.

Visited twice in 2013 and 2014

  • 5 of 5
I was privileged enough to visit Villa Loppy not once, but twice in both 2013 and 2014. I must say each precious moment spent in this charming, luxurious villa was a moment I forever hold in my heart! From the delicious food prepared by one of the local women, to the astounding scenery, to the garden, my experiences at Villa Loppy were some of the most memorable of my life. Our gracious hosts Sonia, Cristina and Rossella provided endless opportunities to revel in authentic Italian culture and experiences. If I could go nowhere else in all my travels, I would be quite content to lay around at Villa Loppy and luxuriate in the Tuscan sun, food, wine, and culture!

THANK YOU MRS SONIA FOR ALLOWING US TO STAY AT YOUR VILLA!

  • 5 of 5
The Villa actually exceeded expectations from the photos and website description. It is more beautiful then the photos show. The vistas are spectacular and the house fit me and my guests lifestyle to a T. Ten of us, 4 couples and 2 singles (we were all between 48 and 60 years old) enjoyed a wonderful week with spacious bedrooms with bathrooms, a great living and dining room that made us all comfy and at the same time provided each of us the privacy needed. The patio/terrace was truly our favorite part. It is multi-leveled with several dining and seating options to take in a glass of wine and the beautiful scenery of mountains, vineyards, rolling country side and olive trees---absolutely spectacular. The kitchen is so inviting...we only ate out twice and cooked the other nights. We never wanted for any utensils or dishes, the kitchen is well stocked. The gardens and courtyards are immaculately maintained. The owner, Mrs Sonia and her aunt were very accomodating and prompt in their responses to all inquiries prior to our trip. The location is great, with a top notch winery within 3 miles and other smaller wineries close by. The village of Loppeglia is so quaint and wonderful to bike ride through or just relax. The first night we were so excited to be there. We all gathered outside drinking wine, sharing munchies, stories about our journey from 3 countries to arrive at the Villa.... this was unforgettable. Walking in the village we met very pleasant people, especially the English couple who owns a house close by who entertained a lot and shared great restaurant and local information with us. The villa was wonderful, the weather was perfect, the pool was lovely, the view was amazing, and we all had a wonderful time and we wish to come back soon! Thank you Mrs Sonia for allowing us to stay there!

Amazing Charm and Thoughtful Service

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic experience we had renting this villa. Even before we closed the deal, Sonia was exceptionally helpful and prompt. And, the recommendation of our private chef and cooking lesson was perfect.

We arrived to Lucca later than we had hoped and were greeted by Christina with a welcoming smile and assurance that it was OK. She guided our way out of Lucca and into the hills north of the city. As we drove through the private gate, what a view. The villa was lit for us and open for our weary bones.

With an explanation of all things electric and pertinent by Silvano, the caretaker, we were ready for our adventure. His lovely wife made arrangements for the restaurant - right out the back door - to seat us as we were without provisions and hungry due to our late flight. They weren't quite ready as it was a full house that night, but called on the house phone 20 minutes later and served up some amazing food. So amazing, in fact, that we returned the next night when the second group of party arrived.

The drive the next morning back down the hillside was easier in the daylight, and got easier with each day. Don't let it scare you. The view and peace is worth it.

Christina, come to find out, was to be the chef for our cooking lesson. An optional trip to the grocery with her in the morning helped us stock our cupboards and refrigerators for the week. She spent nearly the day with us as she shared the recipes and secrets of her mother and grandmother.

Don't miss a visit to the vineyard Valle Del Sole if your up to it and around during the season. Marco was an amazing host.

Sonia, we'll be back. Thank you for making the amazing property available.

Tuscan Hill Dream in Loppeglia

  • 5 of 5
This villa is truly a Tuscan dream come true!! Only 15 minutes from the ancient walled city of Lucca, and a half hour from the beach and Florence, it was the perfect location. It is set high above the hill tops in the small but perfect village of Loppegla. The road to the house has breathtaking views. The villa is restored to perfection, maintaining the Tuscan character and charm, yet providing all modern amenities, including a magnificent pool! The house is completely private with an ancient wall surrounding it. There is a delicious restaurant "la Collina" right next door, and an amazing bar/pizzeria right up the road, where the owners Alessandro, Daniela and their children make you feel right at home. The homeowners were simply wonderful to rent from, and Signore Silvano, the villa's manager, was extra kind and helpful. This experience immersed us into Italian culture and made us appreciate Italy that much more! We can't wait to return to the villa in Loppeglia!

Staying here was the BEST decision we made!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the Villa Loppy at the end of July 2012 with 8 girlfriends. Sonia was incredibly helpful in getting the whole reservation set up (and was so patient in helping us with some unforeseen scheduling changes) and when we arrived we were NOT disappointed.

We were greeted by Sonia’s son and sister, Rossella. They speak such a perfect English, they could not have been more gracious and welcoming. They showed us around the adorable villa and made sure we knew where to find them if we needed anything at all (right next door). The villa was absolutely immaculate and everything we needed was there - sheets, dishes bath towels, and even separate beach towels. There was even fresh fruit and bottled water in the fridge! We had an absolutely FABULOUS week in Lucca and the rest of the Tuscan towns and loved having our own place to come back to. This villa is also located halfway between Lucca and the coast so the trips to Viareggio and other beaches were short and easy. Lucca town centre is located in about 10-12 mins driving from the villa.

When it was time to leave, 8 of us were taking the cars to the airport, but one person had to leave very early in the morning. Rossella arranged for a private car service from a trusted driver, and she even got up at 5 AM to make sure she got off safely! We were so sad to leave this little gem of a town. I can not speak highly enough of Sonia and Rossella, the son, the location, and the villa itself. We felt so welcomed and so comfortable and it was truly a vacation we will never forget.
