I was lucky enough to be one of the guests staying at Villa Serena recently. What a beautiful home! An absolutely stunning setting and indeed very serene. Early mornings in the garden watching the world wake up - Long afternoons by the pool watching the sun begin to set - Dinner time outside under the grape trellis - ALL overlooking the sea were delightful. Your home is beautifully appointed with many details that are often missing from home rentals, extensive kitchen equipment, artwork, china, linens, and candles. And the large stack of beautiful tea towels, so wonderful! We set a beautiful table every night to go with our meals. We truly loved to cook in the outdoor pizza oven which was generously stocked with nice dry wood making it easy to start the fire within. What a treat!
The house keeper was there to greet us and went through every aspect of the house upon our arrival, pointing out all the amenities, even down at the pool house. There are also information manuals for everything in the house and details about the area in general. She also was so helpful when on one occasion part of our group was locked out and she showed up quickly to let us in. We look forward to our next visit.
Great house, great location, great holiday!
Anna Maria's home was spectacular. Everything was as advertised and the pool was even better than expected. We were eight, 2 families, with 2 girls and 2 boys ages 12-16. Everyone had plenty of space. Beds were very comfortable. It was extraordinarily warm during our visit so the air conditioning in the bedrooms at night was perfect, but during the day with the windows (screened) open and the breezes blowing it was very nice. Nocchi is a nice quiet place with a couple of good and family friendly restaurants. I would recommend heading up to Pieve for a night or 2. There are 2 good restaurants up that way, only 5 minute drive. Nice day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Cinque Terre, but always nice to come back to the house, swim, play cards, enjoy the music system at the pool, nap, etc. Would have liked to stay another week just to do nothing, but that will be for another time.
Without any reservations, I would recommend this for 2 families traveling together or even several couples.
