We stayed for a week at Villa Rosa in June and had a fabulous time. Our party consisted of myself , wife, 3 children and in laws. First of all I have to thank the Villa Rosa Team in helping us get to the villa. My GPS navigation decided to pack up just past Lucca. A quick call to the team and in 25 minutes, one of them had been dispatched to “escort” us in.I’m sure we would have made it but the fact that they went out of their way to help us meant a lot to me and my family.
We arrived and my tribe decamped to the villa and were shown around the place by the team member. We had bought our supplies at a local hyper market but Villa Rosa had left us a free welcome pack of Wine, diet coke’s and iced tea,that were already in the fridge......what a life saver guys!
Villa Rosa was spotless and well equipped. My teenage daughters loved the Sony ipod sound system and I loved the Sony Flat screen TV....(even though I promised my wife I wouldn’t look at BBC 24 news to keep an eye on the business world).
The kitchen had all the utensils a cook could wish for. But we had decided not to really cook ... after all we were on holiday! We spent our dinners in Bagni di Lucca or at the local trattoria in the village.
We picked Villa Rosa because we were looking for a place to maximize our time in Tuscany. Its only 30 minutes from Lucca and about an hour from Pisa .
We listened to the teams advice and drove to Lucca , parked the car in the safe secure parking area and an hour and half later we were in the centre of Florence. Perfect.
Villa Rosa’s location is hard to fault. All the rooms have fabulous views and the Villa had 2 lovely bathrooms which was appreciated by all.
The pool was large and the garden area around it was well planned with its natural shaded area and sun loungers, all aluminum and very comfortable. With the pool being cleaned twice a week, it was immaculate and the girls loved swimming in the water.
Our week at Villa Rosa finished far to quickly and we spent the evening relaxing on the balcony. Villa Rosa managed to cocoon me at relax me completely. I wish I could go back next week and with any luck we will try and come again for a half term. With the excellent prices they have I can see why they have become very popular, judging by the great comments, left by others in the visitors book.
The whole family loved Villa Rosa and came back home feeling refreshed and relaxed.
Excellent work Villa Rosa!
