Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I stayed at Casa Limonaia for a week . Elisa and her family were warm, welcoming hosts who were very helpful with advice for places to dine and sightsee. They even helped me find the very small nearby village where my grandparents were born!
The house was very clean, peaceful and was an excellent home base for exploring Lucca , Pisa , Cinque Terra and the Tuscany countryside.
Massarosa is charming, un-touristy town, with several good family restaurants, a wine store and a weekly market we enjoyed visiting.
We highly recommend this villa and would stay there again.
