A Special Place

  • 5 of 5
These first two weeks in June at Villa Macario have been a perfect Tuscan retreat for all three generations of our family.

Although beautifully appointed with complete privacy and amazing views from the terraces and the swimming pool, it is within easy reach of Lucca, which has lots to offer, and is a relatively short journey from the airport.



We marvelled at the way this villa has been brought back to life to make the most of these stunning views and valued the opportunity to feel this was our “home” to enjoy.



This is a special place, not a boutique hotel. But we did not come to Tuscany for that, as the family home aspect made it perfect for a group with four very young children. We would have felt uncomfortable if everything had been too precious.



Dining out of doors all the time was a joy and, as we love cooking, we came armed with our favourite recipes from Antonio Carluccio, Jamie Oliver, Tom Kitchin, etc. (In fact there are lots of books to refer to already here and all the necessary equipment.) We cooked with herbs from the terrace, ate cherries from the trees and made a pot of gooseberry jam, picked from the bush on the path to the pool.



Suddenly and sadly, the 2 weeks are over and now we shall wake up in Scotland missing the surroundings, perfumes and facilities – particularly the little ones who have had such fun and see this as their second home.



Thank you so much.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Four weeks in Italy…..! The idea was to find a beautiful place, settle in, shop locally, cook, eat, drink and relax. The cat, Mr ‘Negroni’, was centre stage and yes we spoilt him rotten. We ate locally at Lombardo’s on more than a few occasions, visited Florence three times, San Gimignano, Siena, Volterra – all wonderful. Pisa, which no-one seemed to fussed about, was a great visit too – twice! The pool, the woods, the olives – va bene or va bene?!

So did we have a fantastic holiday? You bet…!
