About Samuele Sodini

Hi, my name is Samuele Sodini, owner of Villa al Boschiglia and Casale Sodini, where I serve as both proprietor and vacation counselor.

Yes, during the years renting my villas I have also been an advisor for my guests… and sometimes being an advisor can be hectic, but rewarding for the soul.

Being an advisor is one of the highlights of operating the villas, as I get energy from interacting with others. Being able to do that in a way that can make a positive difference for the experience of a guest makes it doubly enjoyable.

As advisor, I have a number of responsibilities to my visitors:

* Helping select what my guests should not miss during their holiday in Tuscany

* Being available to listen and to give right suggestions for appropriate resources

* Sometimes trying to anticipate their needs

These are the generic things I do. But just as importantly, I try to be an advisor who cares. When I’m meeting with my guests and friends, they are the focus of my attention. As much as I can, I let the phone ring, I ask those interrupting to wait, and try to spend as much time as necessary to deal with any issues an advisee might have.

I don’t have a degree in advising or counseling. My advising expertise arises from my personality, my personal and professional experiences, the tours, and the reading I’ve done. I do the best I can to assist my guests. I also try to understand when a situation is beyond what I can do and when I need to refer someone for a higher level of assistance. As with life in general, I can only just keep trying to get better

My reward is in seeing my guests happy, enjoying an unforgettable holiday under the Tuscan sun!

Samuele Sodini purchased this villa in 1999

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for everything.

We had a phenomenal week. We can't say enough good things about Larisa.

She absolutely made our week so enjoyable with two full days as our tour guide and the magnificent dinner she and Valentino prepared for us.

She had a demanding group and she was so patient and knew exactly what we wanted to see.

Her recommendations for one day trips were right on target and we thoroughly enjoyed where she sent us on our own. We absolutely loved your home and thank you for the good memories. Ciao!

villa casale sodini

  • 5 of 5
I cannot recommend this property highly enough, it exceeded my expectations as we were 7 adults and 6 children. The villa was very child friendly and had a beautiful swimming pool and large garden for the children to play in. , icemaking and expresso machine.it also has wifi
Every bedroom had it own airconditoner and bathroom and the only noise was the birds singing in the trees.We always had plenty of hot water and there are excellent laundry facilities.
the location was great as it was approx 3 miles from lucca, a full size supermarket was 2 miles away and two excellent resturants within a 5 mt drive, La Cecca and LaBimbotta.
The train station in lucca is a gateway to pisa, rome and florence and there were many beautiful places for visit for day trips within easy driving distance.
Our host was an excellent host and could not do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, (we stayed for a month)
Go stay and enjoy the wonderful tuscan hospitality

Antico Casale Sodini

  • 5 of 5
My family rented Antico Casale Sodini during our recent trip to Italy. We have teenagers, so we wanted a home that would be comfortable, yet spacious. The villa was lovely and exceeded our expectations. It was clean, comfortable and conveniently located. The view from the villa is breathtaking! The beautiful backyard and large pool were a huge bonus as we like to exercise and then relax after a day of sightseeing. There was internet access, so our teenagers were happy to stay connected to their “facebook” world.

Antico Casale Sodini is located 10 minutes from Lucca, a quiet, charming, yet upscale town that offered bicycling, shopping, wine tasting and much more! It is located close to several nice restaurants, a large grocery store and other amenities.

The owner, Samuele Sodini was extremely gracious and helpful with advice about restaurants and local activities.
He was extremely accommodating with information before the trip (via email) and while we stayed at Villa Casale.

Breakfast was served each morning by Julia, the housekeeper. She also tidied the rooms and helped us with restaurant reservations and other questions. She couldn’t have been more delightful.

Our trip was indeed a trip of a lifetime, and we enjoyed every minute. We would recommend highly a stay at Antico Casale Sodini!
