The city of Lucca: At times we read that the inhabitants of Lucca, The Lucchesi, built their landscape 'as if their only preoccupation were beauty'. It is a varied and generous landscape, abounding in life as well as silences, paths between the woods, meadows and picturesque medieval villages. An island of nature and of history that is situated in the centre of north-western Tuscany, it enjoys an enviable position a few minutes away from the sea and less than an hour by car from Florence. It borders on the province of Pisa, and is surrounded by the Apennine mountains and the spurs of the Apuan Alps. Hemmed in by its walls, the city reveals itself a little it at a time. Only by walking along the narrow streets of the historic centre and visiting the more than one hundred churches and almost the same number of palace can one discover the mystery and magic of a past that abounds in the history, culture and architecture of various epochs. Everything in the city of Lucca is to be seen.

The surroundings: Segromigno Monte is in a pretty village situated at the foot of the slope leading to the plateau of the Pizzorne. This is where the hill starts to climb gently offering picturesque landscape .Besides to many historic villas, like the best known is Villa Mansi,The Parish church of San Lorenzo, built in .872AD is characterized by a soaring bell tower. Inside the church You can admire splendid frescoes of Ademollo, a Romanesque column as well as the Marble Tabernacle of the Pietà by Baccio da Montelupo wich was built in 1519).

Avery special holiday

  • 5 of 5
I could not recommend this villa highly enough. It's setting is stunning,lot's of outside seating areas, great for a little quiet time when on holiday in a large group.
The villa itself is beautiful, very well equipped and thoughtfully decorated but even with all this, the most special part of our holiday was getting to know Loretta and her family,what truly wonderful hosts. By the time we left we were beginning to feel like extended family.
Thank you all for making our stay so special.

Great holidays, great place

  • 5 of 5
We spent one week in the casa Mennone with 3 other couples. We were 8 adults and 9 children and had a great time in this house. The house is very big and even with so many people each family had its privacy. The house is very nicely decorated, nothing is missing, even for the children there are toys and games to play. The pool is very nice, perfect temperature and ideal for children as it is not too deep.
When we arrived the house was perfectly clean, everything was set up and ready for a great time. We wished we would have booked 2 weeks instead of one !
It is a good location to visit the north part of Toscany like Firenze, Pisa, Lucca...
The whole group rated this week as one of the best vacation they had. We would definitly recommend it. On top of that Loretta and Giuseppe are very friendly and ready to help for anything.

Fantastic house and very hospitable owners!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Mennone is a fantastic house in the mountains near Lucca. The view from the house is amazing and the garden and surroundings very beautiful with grapes and olive trees. The house itself is large and all bedrooms nicely furnished with antique furnitures.
The house was clean and everything worked well. The owners Loretta and Guiseppe are very hospitable and generous.

You will need a car to get around, but you can easily make a daytrip to Firenze/Florence, Lucca, Pisa and the coast.

We can really recommend this house!

A wonderful experience at Casa Mennone

  • 5 of 5
In july 2010, we were 18 adults an 3 children from the Faroe Islands - family and friends - staying at Casa Mennone for two weeks during our holidays.

The first thing that we discovered when arriving at night was the wonderful view over the landscape around the house. Coming from the far north, we were used to some beautiful views, but this was so different, and sometimes we felt that we had come to fairyland.

We were met by some lovely people, who vere very guestfree and helpful to us. When we for example needed to get in touch with at doctor at night, Loretta was there to help us through it all.

Casa Mennone is a fantastic house with something for everyone to enjoy. The facilities are very good, the house is clean, and the swimmingpool is perfect.
Since the house is located outside the village, and there are no stores near by, it is a good idea - especially in the summer when the weather is hot - to bring or rent a car. There are busses that can take you to Lucca which is a very lovely town to visit. From Lucca there are busses going to several towns, and the bus tickets are cheep.

Overall I must say that the pictures of Casa Mennone at the internet do not live up to the experience of visiting Casa Mennone. This trip to Tuscany certainly was worth while, and could be recommended to everyone.

You could not expect a better house

  • 5 of 5
It was our 2nd vaccation in a house in tuscany with 4 families (8 adults and 8 kids from 10 to 17 years). We had a great experience some years ago and were afraid that it might be difficult to find something similar. It was even better. The pictures show only part of how good it is. The rooms were perfect, most bathrooms like the ones you find in magazines as examples for good taste. The kitchen well equipped, the table so big, that we could all eat together. Beutifull view from the property, sights close if you want to leave the house. The kids mostly decided to stay "home". Strong recommendation!!

Casa Mennone

  • 5 of 5
I and 12 of my family and friends met at Casa Mennone for Christmas and stayed for two weeks. We
loved the house. It was nicely decorated and furnished (rustic country style) and very cosy and comfortable with a personal touch. It was clean and well maintained. It had everything you could wish for in the way of appliances, crockery, glasses etc. The owners, Loretta and Giuseppe, were more than kind and helpful, always available with advice and tips. We stayed there over winter and it was fantastic with a roaring log fire but I would definitely be great in summer with the lovely large garden and beautiful pool. The location of the house is great (Lucca is 20 minutes away) and it has a wonderful view down the valley also at night. There are great walks up the hill behind the house. I can recommend the house highly.
