Family of 4 (mom dad & 2 teens) stayed for 8 nights in August 2018. From the very first email, Marina was very easy to communicate with and was always very accommodating. We have stayed in many places around the world and this was definitely one of the easiest to book. We stayed in Il Fienile, a 2 bed/2bath Villa (1 queen bed & 3 singles). Pictures are very accurate and the Villa was as described. There was lots of privacy and the only time we saw other guests (from the 2nd smaller Villa) was only occasionally at the pool. Ah, the pool...a welcome refuge after a day of sightseeing. The view of Lucca and beyond was beautiful! Lucca is about a 15 minute drive away (one way), Pisa about 30 minutes, Florence about an hour and the Cinque Terre about 1.5 hours away. We attended Paolo’s cooking school/dinner (75Euro each) and thoroughly enjoyed the class as well as our dinner afterwards - so good and highly recommend doing it! Marina and Paolo were delightful hosts and very willing to provide recommendations on sights to see and places for dinner. (Highly recommend having dinner 1 night at Osteria da Giomo 25Euro/person. No menu, they provide every course - so good and so much food!). Overall, our stay was wonderful and after checking out so many places before booking this Villa, I’m glad we booked this place...and Marina and Paolo were delightful xo!
We loved staying at this gem of a property in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside. We were amazed at the owner's attention to detail with the homes furnishings and supplies; they thought of everything. It truly felt like we were staying at a 5 star establishment. We were greeted with a lovely basket of fruit and muffins so we could enjoy a delicious breakfast along with a personalized bottle of extra virgin olive oil to use in our cooking. They provided information on local restaurants and grocery stores and local events that were happening during our stay and were the perfect hosts. The property was immaculate, inside and out and the views are to die for. I really can't say enough about this home and the owners; it was true perfection and we feel honored that we could enjoy Tuscany from this location. Thank you Elisa & Guilio!
