Review Title : 327551 - "Il Gobbo - Fantastico!"



"The web site description of Il Gobbo is good, but the property is better! 9 of us stayed at Il Gobbo (3 couples and a family of 3 with a 9 year old boy), there was still room for more people. Everyone felt is was the best property we had stayed at in all of our vacations in Tuscany. The home is absloutley magnificent, everything works perfectly, even the espresso machine! It was immaculately clean and well maintained. The spa is at least as good as the view from it! The serenity of the property is probably its biggest asset, although inside the home is superb as well. Loretta and Guiseppi are magnificent hosts who live close by if you need any assistance, such as where can you get the best local wine and seafood, etc! We have never had such good customer service. We will definitely stay there again and have already begun recommending it to our friends.

We are Giuseppe and Loretta and we bought the house “Casa Il Gobbo” in 1979. After restoring the oldest part of the house we began to rent it in 1994. We had welcomed guests from all over the world for more than 25 years. Over the years we have made the house more welcoming and equipped with every comfort to ensure you a nice vacation both to adults and children. Now, with the help of our son Mario and our daughter Elisa we will be happy to meet you and join you in appreciating the beauty that the city of Lucca offers while enjoying some of the excellent food and local wines.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
This is the first time we have used this site and for our two families that were travelling together, we invested both emotionally and financially when we decided on renting this house, Casa Il Gobbo - and it turned out to be one of the best investments we have ever made!

The house itself was well-furnished, well-equipped and everything about the interior was so solid. All the bedrooms were beautifully decorated - even the kids did not have any trouble finding a lovely room that suited just them. It was clean, lots of towels, washing machine, tools for cooking etc. Everything two families needs when staying in a home away from home! One necessity for our modern families was wifi. That could be the one small improvement for this facility - it worked well in close range to the router in the living room area, but not in all the bedrooms. The advantage of that was that it kept us all close together in the evenings when everyone wanted to post some updates on all the wonderful things we had seen and experienced! ;)
There were so many things to do on this property! One of the best evenings we had, was when we all pitched in and made our own pizzas in the stone oven. Never tasted better pizza!

Even with 4 adults and 8 kids in the house and running around on the grounds it never felt crowded. We had lots of space to roam on and the pool sun beds, the jacuzzi, the shaded sun beds, the hammock were frequently used by everyone. We adored all the animals - from horses, to sheep, to turtles - all in our own backyard!

But the absolutely best part of the whole experience was getting to know the lovely owners - Guiseppe, Loretta, Elisa and Mario. What a wonderful family and fantastic hosts! They made sure we had everything we needed and were so kind to help us out with whatever we requested! In some cases this might feel like an intrusion on your privacy, but when it came to this family it was all about being professional, service-minded and caring about the people that they meet! We understand why they now have friends all over the world and we will never forget them! PHENOMENAAAALE! :)

I seldom want to go back to visit a place twice - this is the ultimate exception!
Hope this was useful to anyone considering visiting the Tuscan valley - this was a 5-star experience!
