The trails adjacent to the house will bring you to explore the surrounding forests.

Beautiful villa in the countryside!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this villa; there were 6 in our group and we stayed for 5 nights. The villa was plenty spacious for all of us and the yard and neighboring area were wonderful! The internet was quite slow many times and one of the beds wasn't comfortable, but there was enough beds so that we just didn't use that one. Sabrina had a few items in the fridge for us upon arrival and we really appreciate that; it makes it so much easier when first getting there! We will miss this tranquil Tuscan villa!

Peaceful gem near beautiful Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Villa Viola.

It's a beautiful old farmhouse, very well preserved and it offers you a peaceful stay near Lucca.

The house provides you everything you need and more. The huge garden, fully fenced was explored intensively by our dog and our two girls.

We loved the many books that were available to read, the tips for day-trips and placed to eat.

We did a few nice walks in the area and discovered a peaceful countryside with friendly inhabitants.

We would definitely recommend this hidden gem for a quiet country holiday in Tuscany.

Communication and booking was made easy by the sympathetic Sabrina Neri.

Excellent séjour dans une très agréable villa

  • 5 of 5

Excellent séjour passé en août 2016 dans une villa très confortable et agréable avec un immense jardin dans lequel les enfants se sont bien amusés. La villa est parfaitement située pour visiter Lucca et les environs et l'accueil de Sabrina était parfait.

Je recommande sans hésitation.

Awesome villa in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

The villa is "splendida" indeed, a typical ancient Tuscany house with all the comforts you may need, exactly as described, in a peaceful area but very close to many touristic places. Sabrina is very nice and kind: she gave us very clear indications to reach the villa and when we got there she explained to us everything we need to know about the house and the neighborhood. We had a really good time and I do recommend it!
