A MAGNIFICENT VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing week in what must be the villa with the best view we have ever had. The view is magical at all times of day. The villa is beautiful and full of character and the pool is magnificent. Chrissie, the owner was really helpful, providing us with all the information we needed to make the most of our week, she also booked a restaurant in advance for us so that we knew we'd have a good meal out when we visited the bustling city of Lucca ( where if you visit in the Summer there are some amazing concerts in the old town square). As the property is quite remote it was great to be able to order fantastic home cooked meals to be brought in which could be eaten whilst watching the sunset over the mountains.

The villa was great for our children who are 10 and 12 but toddlers would need close supervision due to steps and the pool.

SERENE RUSTIC BEAUTY & GORGEOUS POOL!

serene rustic beauty & gorgeous pool!
  • 5 of 5
The pool is gorgeous! All of The kids swam and the view is sensational! The farmhouse has rustic beauty with everything you need and boy did we utilize the washing machine which was conveniently located near the door to the terrace. Our clothes dried in the sun and had a lovely fresh scent that no dryer could impart. We really enjoyed reading Chrissie's blogs to see about walks out of the house and everything else you could possibly wish to know about in the area. We had a wonderful time in the charming nearby town of Lucca. All of us biked along the walls, walked around the narrow streets and had a wonderful meal alfresco. We highly recommend making pizza with the lovely local ladies who had everything prepared for a night filled with fun, and more pizza than twice our group could possibly eat. One of our favorite nights was our first night when the same lovely ladies prepared our first dinner, a memory our kids still delight in. Everything we ate was absolutely delicious and from their local farm, wow! They made the most fabulous tiramisu and blackberry liqueur!! Another memorable day was visiting the local caves which all of our boys marveled over. The tour guide was from scotland and quite interesting. The local goat down the street from the villa was a very funny addition to our stay - he or she sat right in the middle of the road sunning himself.
Thank you for sharing your amazing villa !!!

Owner's Response: Dearest Lisa:
Thank you for such a lovely review, the team really enjoyed having you and cooking up a storm in Pizzas ! the goat [ havent checked whether male or female yet] still chills out in the middle of the road, it is a wonder that it has not yet been mown over, but then that is fabulous Italy for you! and especially where La Collina del Sole is located with a super chilled out and relaxed atmosphere. The salt water pool is covered over now as beleive it or not it has been COLD we are looking forward to snow and some skying soon with fun relaxed times reading by the fireplace drinking mulled wine and roasting chestnuts. I so look forward to keepign in touch, please give my love to all the brood, you will always be welcome at La Collina del Sole and I will check out other places to rent bikes from and Ducatis !
