GREAT TUSCAN VILLA - PERFECT FOR RELAXING AND ENJOYING THE LOCAL FOOD AND CULTURE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in July for two weeks. There were 6 of us in total including my husband and I, our two kids ages 6 and 12, and my parents. The house was very roomy for all of us! The house is located about 10-12 min outside of the walls of Lucca up in the hills; if you are driving just know that the roads up to Aquilea are a bit tight but you get used to it quickly! Valentina and her parents were excellent hosts to us! They greeted us in the village and took us to the home and gave us a thorough overview of everything. Valentina provided recommendations and directions on nearby grocery stores as well as restaurants and wineries in the area. She was so very helpful and we loved her parents too! They were so gracious and helpful! The home is very nicely decorated, clean, and well-equipped. The kids loved the pool of course and I loved cooking in the kitchen! They have all the tools you need! We very much enjoyed having breakfast or dinner on the long table on the patio overlooking the yard with all the wonderful plants, flowers, and herbs. There is a beautiful view from the upstairs bedroom overlooking the surrounding Tuscan hills - we woke up to a beautiful sunrise there that we won't soon forget! We used the clothes washer several times while we were there and that worked quite well, which was helpful. We also visited the local bar in Aquilea some evenings after dinner for a nice icy cold shot of Lemoncello and got to meet some locals, which was very fun! Nice to hike up to the church and soccer field too, where we got to see some local kids soccer teams play which was nice! You hear the church bells in the mornings and longer on the weekends, which just fits in perfectly with the beautiful surroundings. I would highly recommend this villa for anyone looking to get away and be out amongst the locals to experience true Tuscany! Florence is a short train ride away (catch train in Lucca) and Forte dei Marmi beach as well as the Cinque Terra are all close via car! Visit the winery nearby that Valentina recommends (some bottle were left for us on the counter to try); the wine maker is "Max". They do a beautiful tasting on the patio overlooking the entire Lucca valley - just amazing and the wine is very good!!! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

5 STAR STAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this lovely villa the last week of August 2013 with our 4 lifetime friends. There was plenty of room in the home, which was beautifully appointed. There is a nice living room to watch TV and a lovely outdoor terrace where we ate breakfast and a few dinners overlooking the lush countryside. The swimming pool was very nice with a sun lounger for each of us. The grounds around the pool are also very nice, the grass is always green, lots of flowers are all around and a breathtaking view. The location was spectacular. We drove into Lucca almost every day and it was only a 10 minute drive. We had a lot of luck parking on the street in Lucca and also drove to the the Tuscan countryside for a wine tour and drove one day to the beach in Forte dei Marmi. The house itself is very clean, the furniture is very nice and comfortable and the bathrooms have all been updated. The bedrooms were very nice with a king bed and jacuzzi tub and a separate built in shower. There was also a ground floor bedroom. This room would also be ideal for a child or for elderly parents. We paid extra for the housekeeper to cook breakfast for us all every morning and this is well worth it -- she was lovely, prompt and made us a delicious breakfast. We also hired a cook to prepare us a traditional Tuscan dinner for two evenings -- it was FABULOUS and even better than most restaurants we ate. The location of the villa on a beautiful hill with a breathtaking view. The pool is in an enchanting location in front of the house, at the top of a hill, from which we gazed over the sunset after a day spent sunbathing. The air conditioning and the excellent wi-fi connection were a bonus.
We would strongly recommend this villa to anyone traveling with a family or a large group. The owners live next door and are available to help anytime you need.

LOVELY VILLA PALLINA

  • 5 of 5
The Villa Pallina owned by Valentina and Sonia was a dream, and I have passed it on to many friends, including the link to your website. We enjoyed it so much. Thank you…. in wiser years, we find ourselves in beautiful places like “downtown” Aquilea, enjoying caffe and pane, with our own butter and marmellata. Staying at the Villa gave us the chance to live, just a little, as a native. I call it the advanced experience. Our families have seen many of the beautiful highlights the cities Italy have to offer. Now, we have stayed in a home, in a village, among great people. Our wonderful week at your lovely villa ended all too soon. We cannot hegin to thank you enough for you most gracious hospitality, helpful information, and outstanding accommodation. Our family had a wonderful time, and your hospitality during our visit made all the difference.

WE LOVE THIS VILLA!!!

  • 5 of 5
What can I say...we stayed at this villa for 5 nights the beginning of September. It was everything that the ad said and more. The location is fantastic and even though the drive up the mountain is a challenge, it became one of the best parts of our trip. It would definitely be difficult to get by without a car if you want to leave the mountain to see any other towns or cities. There is everything in the villa that you could possible want. It's clean, roomy and the kitchen is very functional, they have really thought of everything that you might need. There are great restaurants nearby as well if you don't want to cook. We took advantage of the recommendations and were not disappointed. Lucca is so close and well worth a whole days visit. We took additional day trips to Florence, Pisa, Viareggio, and were only disappointed that we didn't have an extra hot, sunny day to spend by the pool. We found the owners to be responsive and helpful. They met us in Lucca and led us to the villa on our first day there, explaining all we would need to know about the villa before leaving us on our own. They also left us a homemade bottle of wine (fabulous) and a delicious italian cake that we ate for breakfast everyday until it was gone!! We woke up to fresh figs in a basket on the patio one morning as well, such a treat. The only thing I would note is that the listing says it can accomodate 7 people and I'm not sure how they would do that as we were tight with 6. All in all, a beautiful villa in a beautiful spot with lovely hosts...I would recommend it to anybody (and have!) I hope we can go back one day!!!

HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a weeks holiday in the gorgeous village close to Lucca. Not only was the weather really kind to us but our stay was made all the more perfect because the rental was exceptional. Villa Pallina is so beautiful, it is exactly as described, decorated to a very high standard - we were very comfortable. The weather was amazing and we enjoyed walking to the groceries and to the sagra zuppa for tipical dinners under the stars! Everyone was so friendly, we felt right at home. There are two fab restaurants and a great local shop. We went to Lucca, Pisa, Florence and also to the coast, where we had breakfast and a swim. There is so much to do and all destinations are very easy to reach from the villa- we loved driving to the wine area close to the villa where the nature, the view and the antique farms combine together. Mrs Gabriella & Mrs Sonia who owns Villa Pallina were very helpful and we just wanted to say that we shall be back, and in fact we have already booked a return trip for September!. Thank you!

2 WEEKS IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Perfect villa for our group, we were 5 adults & 2 kids, ages 8-11. Lg. dining table, great kitchen with dishwasher and several appliances. Lg. outdoor table/chairs under the covered arbor, beautiful swimming pool and gardens. Great views from the rooftop terrace of the olive groves and the town of Lucca. The 3 bedrooms were comfortable with views from every window. Plenty of bathrooms, no waiting and no problem with hot water. Great spaces to be together or alone. There is Wi-Fi and the husbands managed to do work on their laptops. The light breeze was very pleasant during the day and at night . The beds very very top quality The villa was better than described and everything we needed was provided. The owners are a wonderful family and made our stay a great experience. We asked them to prepare 4 dinners for us, they were delicious.
The town centre of Lucca is very close by then we did day trips to Pisa, Viareggio, Sienna, and Florence.
We loved hearing the church bells. I miss hearing the nightly silence of nature and loved leaving the windows open at night.
We all had a great time, would love to go back and definately recommend this villa. It was a perfect set-up for us as a family but I could also see this for a group of friends. We had no complaints or problems, what could be better. Most of my family had not been to Italy and they all said this was everything they imagined Tuscany would be, a few of the kids said they would love to bring their future kids back to visit.
I'm so glad I found Gabriella, she was a pleasure to work with and I can't say enough about the villa or its owners.
