Overview

About the property

House with 1 double bedroom, 1 single bedroom, 1 bathroom, little garden

The house is in Loppeglia village on the hills around Lucca city (about 15 km far). It is a very very quiet and fresh place, surrounded by the nature and with a beautiful view on the valley. The house has internet wifi.

One of our last reviews (July 2015):

Had a lovely week in Sonia's house outside Lucca! When we did not find the house immediately, we called Sonia, and she kindly arranged that we were met and properly guided straight to the house! She also came with a nice jug of ice tea (and later on a bottle of red wine), much welcome to cool us off a bit after our journey... The house itself is so sweet and cosy, clean and tasteful, and with all equipment you could need for a week's stay (kitchen equipment, dish washer, washing machine...). The tap water is drinkable and tastes super, so no need to buy and carry lots of bottled water, nice. Do consider that the nearest food store (Simply) is in San Martino in Freddana, 6 km away, so you might want to stock up before travelling uphill along the serpent roads to the village and the house. We spent lots of time on the terrace, enjoying the view and the soft hum of the bees savouring the giant lavender bush's flowers. So relaxing. And when not in the house, it was a great spot to start from, going to the beach by Viareggio, or taking the car to La Spezia to continue by train to Cinque Terre. However, maybe the best excursions of them all were not far away at all. The restaurant La Collina - that was really close - served tasty, homecooked style dinner for a super price (2 glasses of spumante, a bottle of local wine, truffles pasta, two meat main courses, veggies with that, desserts, coffee and avec, perhaps 55 euro..) and with the sweetest service too. In the other direction - along a beautiful small road (that was also great for running) - you will find Cecconi, with an unparalleled view over a valley, and great Tuscan food. Do try their wild boar ragu, and their buccelato.. Also great value, we ate there twice. On the way home there were lots of fire flies leading our way, magical.. Both restaurants open at least Thursday-Sunday. So, I truly recommend anyone that want a peaceful, quiet place as you home away from home to stay here. I know that we would certainly like to return...

This home was beautiful, comfortable, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Welcome to your home away from home. This is how you will feel at Casa Isabella. Hosts, Sonia and Egidio, are helpful and friendly, yet not intrusive. The pleasant three room house has a large bedroom (and very comfortable bed), offering gorgeous views of the verdant Tuscan hills, a modern kitchen perfect for preparing home-cooked meals, a downstairs TV room with a nice sofa bed, plus 1 1/2 bathrooms with plenty of hot water. We also thoroughly enjoyed dining outside in the private garden or simply gazing upon the lovely countryside. The peaceful garden overflows with colorful flowers, herbs, and lemon trees. For us, the house was a perfect location. Nestled in the quiet, small village of Loppeglia, yet near the historical walled city of Lucca, it is within easy reach of Florence, Pisa, Siena, Viareggio, and many other quaint Tuscan villages. There is so much to explore in the area, including the ancient Francigena Trail for hiking. Three excellent restaurants are nearby, as well as a coffee bar for fresh espresso. If you are seeking a lovely house in a wonderful location, look no further. Casa Isabella is the place!

Fantastischer Ausblick

  • 4 of 5

Traumhafte Lage, für 2 Personen war dieses Haus top. Mit zwei Kindern wurde es etwas eng. Der Schlafraum in der unteren Etage hatte eine gewisse Kelleratmosphäre, war aber für die heißen Sommernächte erfrischend kühl. Die Auffahrt zum Haus war jedesmal wieder aufregend, sehr gute Fahrkenntnisse sind hier erforderlich. Zum Strand und den nächsten schönen Orten war es nicht weit. Die Gelatteria in. S. Martino in Freddana ist der absolute Geheimtipp, super lecker.! Wir kommen wieder!

Sehr schönes Haus in den Bergen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben hier eine sehr schöne Zeit verbracht. Das Haus liegt traumhaft in den Bergen mit einem tollen Blick ins Tal.

Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut und es ist alles da,was man benötigt.

In der Nähe gibt es zwei Restaurants,die fussläufig zu erreichen sind.

La Collina ist besonders zu empfehlen.

Die Umgebung lädt zum wandern ein und Lucca sowie das Meer sind recht schnell zu erregen.

Die Vermieter waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Also diese Unterkunft ist nur zu empfehlen.

Un très bel endroit

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une belle semaine dans ce petit village au soleil perché sur sa colline et plein de charme. La terrasse est très agréable et permet d'admirer le magnifique paysage Toscan. Le gite est impeccable et les propriétaires sont bien sympathiques et discrets. Lucca à environ 20 minutes est une ville pleine de charme.
