Séjour aux environs de Lucca
Nous avons passé un très beau séjour au "Prato Verde" appartement Ginestra. Il répondait à toutes nos attentes : spacieux, bien équipé, bien agencé et très propre. La présence de deux terrasses nous permettait de prendre tous les repas à l'extérieur malgré un été très chaud. La piscine a fait la joie de tous les membres de la famille, petits et grands. C'est un site calme qui est toutefois proche des commerces et des sites touristiques. La présence du restaurant est indéniablement un plus. Nous y avons dégusté de succulents plats de la gastronomie italienne.
Wohlfühlen zwischen Bergen und Meer
Wer so freundlich, so fleißig ist und so sensationell gut kochen kann, wie Mama, Papa, Laura und Mara, hat sich das "Prato Verde" wirklich verdient!!! Wir haben zwei wunderschöne Wochen im Appartement Ginestra genossen.Große Terrassen, zwei Schlafräume, top Sonnenliegen, super Salzwasserpool, alles da, was der Urlauber braucht!
Wir haben jeden Tag im Restaurant gegessen-dieLasagne, die Pasta frita oder das Carpachio vom Schwertfisch alles Gourmetträume, die in Errineruung bleiben werden.
Das Prato Verde liegt traumhaft zwichen Bergen und Meer. Acht Kilometer von Lucca, eine gemütliche alte Stadt zum Einkaufen und flanieren.Zum Meer 20 Minten Autofahrt und Pisa und Florenz sind auch nicht weit.
Insgesamt ist das Prato Verde etwas für ruhesuchende Urlauber, die heiß auf Kultur, Meer, Berge, gutes Essen und auf toskanisches Flair sind.
WIR KOMMEN WIEDER!
Wunderschöne Unterkunft mitten im Grünen
Wir waren eine Woche in der Wohnung Glicine. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön, sauber, geräumig und bietet alles was man braucht mit zwei wunderschönen Terrassen, eine mit Schatten morgens und eine mit Schatten abends. Mara und Ihre Schwester sind sehr freundlich. Unsere Kinder waren auch begeistert vom Pool und den vielen Eidechsen. Die Umgebung ist schön angepflanzt, es ist richtig idyllisch. Einziges Problem: Durch die bodentiefen Fenster sind von außen verspiegelt und somit nicht einsehbar, dafür gib es weder Rolläden, Fensterläden noch Schnakengitter und wir mussten immer mit geschlossenen Fenstern schlafen, was ziemlich heiß und stickig war.
lovely apartment in a great location
Our week long stay at the Ginestra commenced with a lovely welcome from Mara and Laura which included a bottle of fine wine and bruschetta. The apartment was ideal for our family of 4, clean, spacious and with lovely views. The location is ideal for either relaxing by the pool, exploring the region or visiting the beaches.The restaurant on the site is a must, serving great local produce at very reasonable prices and served with a smile always. We would recommend the Ginestra and would be happy to return again some day.
Great place to stay and enjoy Lucca
Had the pleasure of staying here for a week. Nice location, secluded, quiet, but close enough to enjoy surrounding area. Kitchen is fully equipped, nice big bathroom and the King bed was very comfortable. The outdoor patio area was great for breakfast and afternoon wine. The best was the cooking class that Mara and 'Mama', the chef gave us. It was fun, and we were able to eat what we cooked with the entire family at lunch. Mara's dad is a sweetheart, and her two children and nephew were fun to talk to.
Mara greeted us with a bottle of wine and appetizers. Make sure you take advantage of their restaurant. The food is delicious and prices very reasonable. Ciao
My partner and I stayed in Glicine for 8 nights. Mara and her family were very welcoming and we were invited for complimentary bruchetta and the fabulous della casa vino rosso.. the best red wine I have ever tasted! The apartment was so well presented with fresh flowers in the bedroom and the 2 terraces were roomy and sunny..! Unfortunately we did not experience the pool but looked very inviting. The views are somewhat hampered now by the high trees.. but you are just able to see the lake from the woods at the top of the garden.
It does state WI-FI but there is none, which was a disappointment to us and it was one of the criteria for booking the holiday. Free wi-fi is available in Lucca at various locations.
We don't watch TV but the apartment only has german channels, so a bit of an update would be good.. maybe a DVD player and or stereo would have been nice too.
The restaurant served fabulous food.. the antipasto was delicious.. but don't order too much to follow.. you won't have room!! :o)
For the best part it was very peaceful, however, we did experience 2 very large weddings at the restaurant. One of them did not affect us too badly as it was during the day, so we went out. The other however, did not start until late afternoon early evening and although the noise of people enjoying themselves and the music did not worry us too much, the ongoing hooter blasts well into the early hours was a little too much especially after a long day travelling. So be aware that the peace and tranquility that you crave may be shattered if there is a function on.
The Italian roads.. especially the mountain ones were at times terrifying.. and some of the Italian drivers were even scarier.. my advice.. expect the unexpected.. if they indicate then they ARE coming out, they are not waiting for you to let them out! So be bold.. do not hesitate, because they certainly don't.
We visited numerous places and Lucca in particular was a delight! Thank you Mara and family!
Chiatri, the nearest village, is a little quiet burgh on the hills between Lucca and the Versilia coast with its long and crowded sandy beaches. The Versilia is famous in all Italy and abroad for its sprightly nightlife and its numerous discos. If you come to Residence Prato Verde, on the contrary, you can experience peace and relax. You will be immersed in olive groves and woods and you will find paths that are ideal for walks and mountain biking activities. As you certainly know, Chiatri was also Giacomo Puccini’s first summer residence. Puccini, the famous Italian composer, lived in Torre del Lago and came here to hunt and refresh himself during the hot summer periods. You can still visit his home. Moreover, if you are interested in art, culture and medieval towns, Lucca, at about 20 minutes from here, is one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. It is surrounded by well-preserved city walls on which no cars are allowed, and has myriad little lanes with modern shops.
