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.

Nur schön!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zwei Wochen in diesem schönen Haus und haben eine wunderschöne Zeit hier verbringen dürfen. Das Haus liegt wunderbar um zu entspannen und wenn man will, so liegt diese wunderbare und sehenswerte Stadt Lucca gleich vor der Haustür (11 km). Nochmals vielen Dank an Herrn Campo, uns hat es an nichts gefehlt, entgegenteil wir wurden herzlichst empfangen und haben alles gehabt was das Herz begehrt. Gerne kommen wir wieder.

Beautiful Easter Days

  • 5 of 5

The very cultivated and clean house is well equipped with all you need, homelike and in proper style. The owner is extraordinary helpfulness and hospitably, he welcomed us with a nice breakfast at the terrace, wine and Easter surprises. The situation of the house is excellent with beautiful views and only 15 minutes to Lucca. In April all pastures are in flower and the acacias smell sweet. Who doesn’t yet know Lucca will be surprised of the atmosphere in the old city, which invited us every day to shopping and visiting the beautiful piazzas with lots of cafés and music outside. A holiday to advise without exception!

Traumhafter Osterurlaub/Beautiful Easter Days

  • 5 of 5

Das überaus gepflegte und saubere Haus ist hervorragend ausgestattet, sehr stilecht und heimelig, es fehlt an nichts. Der Besitzer ist außergewöhnlich gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit, er empfing uns mit einem Frühstück auf der Terrasse, Wein und einer Osterüberraschung. Die Lage ist hervorragend, mit einer wunderschönen Aussicht mitten in der Natur und doch nur 15 Minuten Autofahrt bis an den Altstadtrand von Lucca. Im April ist alles unglaublich grün, die Wiesen blühen und die Akazien duften. Wer Lucca noch nicht kennt wird von der Atmosphäre überrascht sein, die uns täglich zum Bummeln, Shoppen und Staunen anzog.

Insbesondere die schönen Plätze mit den vielen Cafés und Musik im Freien und die vielen kleinen Boutiquen und Läden hatten es uns angetan. Ein Urlaub den man nur weiterempfehlen kann!

Owner's Response: I wish all homeowners to find guests as Christiane and her beautiful family for the respect and care they had for the house, as if it were their own, for the enthusiasm they have shown in trying to live as Italians (also dealing with the fatigue of a long easter lunch at the restaurant) and finally also for having been able to express gratitude towards our sense of hospitality. I really hope that Christiane want again be my guest Maurizio
