The rustic villa is ideally located just outside Lucca and close to everything around. Our hosts were very helpful in providing information as well as recommending what there was to do and see in the vicinity. The villa is very romantic and cosy. We would definitely recommend it to everyone.
We were a family of six (from Ireland, London, Washington and Beijing), came to Italy for holiday. We stayed in this magic place for 6 days at the end of June. At the last evening meal, sitting in the garden, gazing the magnificent cliffs in front of us, looking down villages in the valley bordered by the sea , we said to each other to same thing - we could have stayed another week, and we would definitely come back next year!
This place indeed is a hidden paradise. It is the last three houses located almost at the top of the mountain. The views on the way up were breathtaking.
Indeed, the magic of this house is the surprising sceneries one discovers constantly - from the window deck; the garden dining area, and by the poolside. One never ceases to be amazed.
If you like hiking , this is an ideal place to stay.
A small village halfway down was charming, with an old church, a bar and lots of paintings on the wall. The restaurant right up the village was excellent - about 10 minutes walking down, but you need to be fit to walk back home .
Mauro, the host was wonderful. He met us in town to take us to the house. The last 3 minutes of driving to the house is little challenging, so advise you to follow Mauro to this hidden paradise. Thank you Mauro.
