• The owners live in the apartment downstairs, but they have their own private driveway, entrance and outdoor areas and fully respect the privacy of guests who has exclusive use of gardens and pool (except when being tended). Indeed, since the house is built into a slope it feels as though this is in fact a detached house all to yourselves, since one cannot even see owner's accommodation. The only shared facility is the laundry which the owners only use at night since they work all day. The owners speak fluent English so can help with anything you may need, but still be unobtrusive and ensure you are not disturbed!
There are two resident cats (not permitted in house) and there is also a horsepaddock above the grounds (approx 300m from house and 70m from pool), with 2 beautiful friendly horses
• Some of the land is terraced so may not be suitable for toddlers/very small children
• Short breaks available outside of July and August at €170 per night.
• Changeover days are flexible outside of July and August.

Calm and peacefully located in the Lucca Hills
Secluded house with large private pool and stunning views of Lucca's hills.
House in very good condition with accommodating and helpful owners.
The owners speak English as their native language.
We highly recommend this accommodation.

Stunning views, very peaceful, great pool
Views were exceptional, pool was a great hit with the kids as was the wii fit after a long day sightseeing. So peaceful at all times. House was fine, although Jacuzzi bath did not work during our stay.
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We are glad you enjoyed the place, pool and peace!
Sorry about the Jacuzzi - once it was reported the owners got it sorted immediately and it is now working properly.

Stunning and relaxing holiday
I was there for a week in August with my husband, sister and brother in law, and we had a wonderful time! Everything from the views to the house itself was amazing!! Breath taking surroundings and many places to visit such as small villages as well as Sienna, Lucca, Berga and many more. The house was very well equipped as well as comfortable, the outside area was very nice and had a BBQ. And of course the pool!! it was absolutely amazing with stunning views over the surrounding hills. The hosts were very nice and helpful but at the same time gave us lots of privacy. We will definitely come back in the future.
Thank you for your review. Great to hear you loved this well equipped and breathtakingly located house! Sarita and Marco would be happy to welcome you again!

Very nice property with a pool with a view!
We enjoyed our 2 weeks stay very much! Nice house in the hills, large pool with a marvellous view, very kind owners. Very quiet, warm during the day but cold in the evenings (so not to hot to sleep). An excellent location for daytrips: we went to Lucca, Pisa, Barga, Lido di cammaoire and a little bit further (2hrs drive) Cinque Terre and San Gimignano. We can only recommand it!
Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a good time and would recommend the house! It is good you enjoyed the house and the great location.
For the benefit of future guests, the cool evenings are really fantastic for sleeping (cool, but not cold).
A spaces and cool house with excellent beds.
A really nice house with very kind owners who if you want help you and a very nice pool with superb view on the hills and mountains, the kitchen is very compleet and lots of room , the house is very cool and sleeps are perfect and quiet .
A car is a must and you need 20 minutes to get too the nearby shop downtown, we had a splendid 2 weeks!
Ruhig gelegene FeWo/Teilhaus mit sehr netter Vermieterin als "unsichtbare" Nachbarin
Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig oberhalb des kleinen Ortes Lucignana, ca. 25 Autominuten nordöstlich von Lucca. Die erste Anfahrt ist etwas kompliziert, da man sich zunächst nicht vorstellen kann, dass nach dem Örtchen Lucignana - schon schwer genug zu finden und ohne aktuelles Navi im Halbdunkel quasi unmöglich - noch etwas kommt. Hat man das Haus aber erst einmal gefunden und die Anfahrt gemeistert, ist man von Blick, Lage und Ruhe überwältigt.
Die geräumige Wohnung entspricht in dem Ausstattungsstil nicht jedermanns Geschmack, verfügt aber über befriedigendes WLAN, Sky-Fernseher, voll ausgestattete Küche mit Icemaker und gemeinsam mit den mit auf dem Grundstück lebenden Eigentümern (ein sehr nettes Ehepaar aus Liverpool) zu nutzende Waschmaschine und Trockner.
Die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind etwas eingeschränkt (Autofahrt zum nächsten echten Supermarkt ca. 20 Minuten (und den zuvor erklommenen Berg wieder runter....)) aber dort findet man alle Dinge des täglichen Durchschnittsbedarfs.
Entfernungen nach Viareggio, Lucca,Pisa,Florenz für Tagesausflüge o.k., auch wenn bei 35-40 Grad Celsius im Hochsommer nicht immer ein reinstes Vergnügen.
Alles wird aber von dem auf dem Grundstück liegenden großen Swimmingpool mit vier bequemen, typisch italienischen Liegen überstrahlt, die wir zur alleinigen Benutzung hatten und unsere Kinder begeistert haben. Die Eigentümer reinigen den Pool alle 2 Tage gründlich und es ist eine unbeschreibliche Wohltat, dort oben mit Blick über eine wunderschöne toskanische Landschaft zu plantschen.
Thank you for your review!
We are glad you enjoyed this well equipped and stunningly located house, and appreciate the large pool and views....
We feel it is worth the drive up the hill for that panorama and hope you felt the same.
Best wishes to you both from Sarita and Marco .

NB - for future guests, when this review translates on Google it sounds as though all facilities are shared with the owner. It is just the laundry room that is shared. The house has its own garden, pool, entrance and driveway etc with full privacy and not overlooked in garden and pool - for the sole use of guests.
This property is located in a very peaceful and picturesque spot comprising 10 acres of land, with beautiful mountain views, just 1km from the local village which has a basic shop for essentials.
There are 2 good restaurants 5km either side of the property and lots more beyond.
Siutated just 40 mins from the mediaeval walled city Lucca this is an ideal rural location for walking and communing with nature, but good also for exploring with the car.
At Lucca, one can hire bicycles and hire around the still intact City walls, meander through the cobbled streets, visit beautiful churches, climb towers, and shop til you drop, stopping off of course at wonderful restaurants and gelaterias... One can also listen to Puccini performances every night of the year, in one of the local churches ...
Also, close to home at a 20 min drive, is the Spa town of Bagni di Lucca, with it's thermal waters and beauty treatments . There are also banks, supermarkets and several restaurants. The mediaeval town of Barga renowned for its jazz is 25 mins away, the Orrido di Botri (Italy's largest natural Gorge) is 30 mins, and Grotto del Vento, fantastic natural caves 45 mins away .
Further afield, the closest beach is a 1 hr drive, Pisa is 1 hr 20 mins, and Florence 1 hr 45 mins.
For winter stays Skiing at Abetone is just a 45 minute drive.
