A Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 10 including 2 hard to impress teenagers, spent 2 weeks at Il Melograno during July 2012. Owners Mrs Maurizia and Mrs Sonia provided invaluable assistance, and of our 5 weeks of travel in Europe staying in some great places, our family all agrees that Il Melograno was our most special and memorable place to stay.

The house is large, full of character and comfort, and most important given that it was cosy and cool for a summer stay. It was also clean and very well equipped. We spent many relaxing hours at the magnificent pool and alfresco under the rose veranda with a large stock of traditional local food and fine wines, and plenty of books and other materials available inside.

The position is magnificent, and the views and walks very lovely. We did see as much of the area as planned, but had more time to enjoy the house, relax and gaze over the views from the garden!

The owners are very sweet, they were very concerned for our satisfaction and they treated us like member of their family, they are not people who simply collect a rental fee and leave their guests to fend for themselves. We were absolutely satisfied and we are happy to have found a place where we can come back next summer.

A lovely experience

  • 5 of 5
5 adults and a 14 year old just spent a lovely week on the property. It was just as advertised. The owner was very welcoming, accommodating [even bought a brand new washing machine] and helpful. The property is very clean and well maintained. The view is lovely and the swimming pool was a lot of fun.

The owner also gave several good restaurant recommendations.

You definitely need a car.

We did day trips to Chianti, "San G," Cinque Terre, and Portofino. Pisa is less than an hour away and the walled city of Lucca (with bicycle ride around the ramparts!!) is not to be missed.

memorable stay at melograno

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Melograno on a friend's recommendation and we did not regret it. The owner, Maurizia, made us feel at home and provided us with usefull informations to make our trip memorable. The location is ideal, very close to Lucca, the grounds are well maintained and what about the view, breathless. We had the opportunity to really enjoy the villa because everything is so close and can be done in a day trip. Everything was very clean and functional for our family of 10. We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone. If we are to go back to Tuscany, this would be our place to go back. Thanks Maurizia for a memorable stay.

A perfect retreat in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
The property turned out to be everything we had hoped for and more. It was in a beautiful setting away from the crowds we had been experiencing in the major cities. The welcome basket, use of the computer and the emergency phone were thoughtful added touches. Maurizia the owner was a delight and very helpful. We loved coming back from a day exploring the beautiful area and sitting on the terrace in the pretty garden. We particularly enjoyed the two tours of the area recommended in the House Book. As we were travelling for 5 weeks we appreciated having a washing machine to catch up on laundry. The pool is fantastic with a stunning incredible view over the valley. We sat and drank wine under the TUSCAN SUN! Everything from our first contact with owner was an enjoyable experience and we would highly recommend this property.

A little piece of Tuscan heaven

  • 5 of 5
We had the privilege of staying in this property in May with seven other friends and absolutely fell in love with the place. Quite honestly, the beautiful pictures themselves don't even do justice to property. It's location is prefect for exploring the Tuscan countryside, assuming you have a vehicle (I would not recommend it without a vehicle). The rooms were very comfortable - all with bathrooms which was exactly what we required. The place was very clean and well-kept and the grounds were idyllic. The pool area especially could have merited its own postcard. I almost had tears in my eyes the first evening I wandered down to the pool and saw a gorgeous Tuscan sunset on the hillsides to the tune of the church bells ringing on the hill just opposite the property. The owner recommended great places to eat and we had a professional-grade kitchen that fit all of our in-house dining needs. Quite honestly, we could not have found a better spot and plan on going back next time we travel with a large group.

Beautifully appointed spacious villa

  • 5 of 5
Our family have just returned from a great week's holiday in the villa Melograno, There were 10 of us, 2 old codgers (my wife and I) 4 other adults and 4 children aged from 5-15. All of us agreed that it was one of the best holidays we had had as a family and would do the same thing again. Apart from being a well appointed villa with bags of character it was so good to have so much space. The main house is over 4500 sq ft and the old barn over 1500 sq ft. The views from the villa looking out over the infinity pool are spectacular, the gardens are well maintained and there are plenty of eating/relaxing areas. The chidren particulaly enjoyed the video facilities (they took their own videos) and usually spent a couple of hours watching one while we sat outside in the warm evenings with a bottle (or was that 4) of wine. There is a well stocked small supermarket about half a mile away and a good Agritourismo retaurant which Sidrak will direct you to some 4-5 miles away. If you need any other details please feel free to cantact us.
