Serene Comfort

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as charming as the pictures show but even more beautiful. Immaculately clean, roomy, comfortable and filled with family memories. The views and surroundings make you want to stay home and relax...which the 2 of us did on a couple of our days there. At night you could see the lights of San Martino di Freddana in the valley, Lucca to the south or the lovely illuminated church on an adjacent ridge (be sure to take the walk to see it--perhaps with the friendly local dog as your guide). What a delight to pick the last of the season's tomatoes and herbs to make a tasty sauce in the well stocked kitchen, then enjoy al fresco lunches in the garden. It is also a great spot to do a little artwork. Maurizio is a wonderful host and provided us with a delicious array of meats, cheeses, olives, bread, local spring water (the tap water is wonderful too) and wine. We only regretted not being able to spend more time with him, as his practice demanded his attention while we were there. After several attempts, we were able to access WIFI on our USA devices. Lucca is about a 20 minute drive, but the first 5 minutes down the hill are a bit challenging (although only lightly traveled). Castelnuovo Garfagnana and Barga are places not to miss. Gratefully the windows have screens as there are evening mosquitoes. The usually peaceful nights can be interrupted by barking dogs (chasing away some animal?). Our week here was quite idyllic and I would highly recommend this for a quality retreat in an authentic, cherished home.

Wonderful Home in Super Location with Great Host

  • 5 of 5

Maurizio led us from Lucca, up the side of the mountain near Torre, to his beautiful home. The first time the zig-zag drive was quite exhilarating, but after a few days it became ALMOST a routine stroll. Views are breathtaking, environment is serene, and the home was IMMACULATELY clean. The welcome present of lovely cheese, bread, and local meats was delicious and greatly appreciated, since we arrived on a Saturday afternoon after a long drive. Mauricio's wine and olive oil were also wonderful. Our dogs loved the large sunny yard, wandering among the olive trees, and meeting new friends. This is a great kick-off point to Tuscany at large, with beaches nearby, Lucca down the street, Florence a bit up the street, and the Chianti Region a pleasant day-drive. Every day we returned to this lovely home to unwind in the peace and tranquility of the mountain-side, and we were greeted by the many singing birds in the morning to prepare us for another busy day of exploring. We have rented many holiday homes over the years, but this is our favorite due to the serene ambiance, and lovely host who was always available but never intrusive.

wonderful home with great views

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house is a fantastic base for a holiday stay in Tuscany. The house is decorated with great taste and style and has high airy ceilings.

The house was spotlessly clean and maintained to an extremely high standard.

The gardens are very spacious with open and covered areas to sit and read or eat al fresco and enjoy the wonderful views down the valley. They have olive trees and also various seasonal vegetables that the owners are happy for you to use in the kitchen.

The owners are two fantastic people who are very helpful and made our stay in their home extra special. we arrived late in the evening and Maurizio and Laura offered to prepare an evening meal for us, They presented us with Antipasto misto of local cold cuts, olives, cheese, bread and also Maurizio cooked an Amatriciana sauce for a lovely pasta course with Laura's Pepperonata as a side dish. They also provided local wine and the local spring water which was fantastic.

Maurizio recommended a list of restaurants that are great value and serve real local authentic Tuscan food. We found the house to be a great base to explore the area and visited Lucca, La Spezia, Cinque Terra, Vada. It is ideally situated to drive to Florence, Pisa, or even Sienna if you make an early start.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends or family and advise anybody looking for real Tuscany with a touch of class and superb customer service to stay here.

We have stayed in this area many times but this has been our favourite.

We will of course be returning to this fantastic place and look forward to seeing Maurizio and Laura again.

Happy holiday with dogs

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful, I love it! We were travelling with two dogs and when we got to know cats and dogs of the neighbourhood, everything was fine. We spend here sunny three weeks enjoying the Italian way of life, food, olive oil, vine and made day trips to Lucca, Viareggio - Marmi(beach), Pisa and Livorno. We had vine and olive oil tasting in near vineyard Valle del Sole. Maurizio was excellent host: he also gave us his own olive oil which was delicious. We recommend this place to all who don't mind using a car to get somewhere. Best regards to Maurizio, Tarja, Tommi & boys
