Schönes Haus in guter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit unseren Kindern (1, 3 und 5 Jahre) Ende August eine Woche Urlaub in diesem schönen Haus gemacht und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen.

Das Haus ist wirklich sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Bäder sind toll. Und der Außenbereich ist sehr gemütlich.

Der Garten bietet genügend Platz zum Spielen und ist ringsum eingezäunt, so dass die Kinder auch nicht einfach weglaufen konnten. Der Pool ist nicht riesig, aber ausreichend groß, um sich zu erfrischen. Da er nicht beheizt ist, war er für unser Baby zu kalt, aber die großen Kinder hatten viel Spaß darin. Es gab auch Pooltücher, so dass man diese nicht mitnehmen müsste.

Gefreut haben wir, bzw unsere Kinder uns, dass es ein Babybett und einen Hochstuhl gab, sowie eine Kiste mit Spielsachen und einige Kinderbücher.

Im Ort gibt es ein gutes und wirklich günstiges Restaurant- Pinzo- welches wir wirklich empfehlen können. ebenso die Eisdiele wenige Schritte entfernt.

Nach Lucca fährt man ca. 10-15 min, nach Pisa oder ans Meer ca. 45 min.

Der Supermarkt Esselunga ist innerhalb von 4 min zu erreichen und sehr gut sortiert.

Tiziano ist ein toller Gastgeber, der sich um alles kümmert, immer einen Tipp hat und mit dem man sich einfach gut unterhalten kann.

Er hat uns für die Kinder auch einen Babysitter besorgt, so dass wir auch mal in Ruhe essen gehen konnten. Aurora spricht italienisch, englisch, Französisch und Spanisch, aber leider kein Deutsch. Trotzdem hat alles gut geklappt und die Kinder waren gut versorgt.

Wir haben uns wirklich wohlgefühlt und einen schönen Urlaub verbracht!

Danke Tiziano!!

Lovely villa in great setting. Family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We would most certainly recommend Tiziano's Villa. The villa is very picturesque and well located in a quiet area within the rolling hills of Tuscany, but still very close (5/10 mins by car) to a full sized supermarket that is well stocked with all your shopping needs. Other places like pharmacy, resturants etc all fairly close by too.

Inside the villa - we found it clean and ready for us. Lots of character and beautifully presented. Modern kitchen with plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery etc (and a big dishwasher to wash them all in!). A flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo all there for us. And big box of children's toys with many things suitable for all ages of kids. It was really great!

Outside - the garden is spacious and well looked after. There is plenty of parking and automatic entry gates. A BBQ and plenty of nice furniture on the terrace to sit and relax. The pool is very inviting and was kept clean. Although it is raised and not a full tiled pool, it served it's purpose very well - the kids loved spending time in it.

We had a wonderful week here and Tiziano made us very welcome. He was unobtrusive but helpful. Friendly and really made the effort to ensure our stay was comfortable. High chair and travel cot for the baby? no problem. Step for the 4 year old to reach the sink? no problem! Even prior to our arrival he communicated with us about our plans and helped organise a babysitter for our young girls. By the way, she (Aurora) was also wonderful and I recommend her without hesitation if you are in need of childcare.

Thank you Tiziano for everything! ~ Family Allen

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful villa. The location is perfect for visiting lots of local towns and cities but wonderfully quiet and secluded for barbecues and relaxing in peace. Tiziano is a great host, providing us with some very tasty olive oil made from olives harvested from the garden and also a great pool cleaning service for us crazy English people who insisted on using the pool in the cooler weather!

We would love to visit again and would highly recommend anybody to say here. The villa provided us with everything we needed and more.

Ideal family house.

  • 5 of 5

Charming beautiful old house; very tastfully renovated, well equiped interior.

Ideally located for day trips in the region or just to stay in the privacy of the house to relax and read books in the garden near the pool.

Very friendly english speaking owner who takes good care of his guests (and house).

Beautiful House, very family friendly

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tizianos house for one week, the weather was wonderful, hot, however it was lovely and cool inside. The furnishings were modern, the kitchen lovely and bedrooms very beautiful. The children loved the pool, although not a deep in ground pool it was perfect for cooling off and the children spent every possible moment in it. It was a short drive to Lucca and was in a lovely and quiet location with views of the local countryside. Tiziano the owner was a true gentleman and was willing to help with anything. The price of the house was excellent and we'd definitely stay here again.

Super schön und erholsam

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schönes rustikales Haus, angenehm kühl innen auch wenn es draussen heiss ist.

Schöner Garten mit Pool und Lounge zum entspannen.

Esstisch ist super gemütlich - Küche sehr gut ausgerüstet - man findet alles was man braucht. Alles sehr sauber und gepflegt.

Tiziano ist sehr hilfsbereit, kümmerte sich um Pool, Garten und stand jederzeit für Anliegen zur Verfügung. Ein Auto ist zwingend notwendig, damit man mobil ist.

Meine fünf Wochen sind wie im Flug vorbei und denke sicher oft an die schöne Zeit zurück.
