Perfect location to explore Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in the perfect location for exploring the Tuscan region. We fell in love with Lucca and the villa had all the necessities for making our holiday like home from home including the lovely dog that lives next door but roams from house to house in the the small complex

We visited Siena, Florence, Collodi and along the West coast for the beaches

Beautiful country and amazing places to visit

Stephania was so helpful in pointing out all the villa's amenities and advising us of the area and when we had any queries she was so very helpful

Happy in Capanori

  • 4 of 5

Stefania's house is well located and in a stunning position with views across olive groves to the mountains beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. It is only 15 minutes to Lucca and about 45/50 minutes to a lovely beach. A good supermarket is 10 minutes away.

The only downside for me was that the shower cubicle was rather small.

Overall a great place to stay

A little piece of heaven...

  • 5 of 5

This house is all we had hoped and more. Beautifully renovated with the perfect mix of rustic Tuscan charm and modern convenience. The outside is as well furnished as inside with plenty of opportunities to relax and enjoy the mountain views.

Our hostess Stefania couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We hope to return next year.

Highly recommended.

Fantastic holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in this great property. The location is fantastic as it is close to local amenities and only a short drive to the centre of Lucca. It is also an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area.

The house is well equipped and has a modem flair while keeping it's rustic charm. My two young children loved playing in the large garden and the outside kitchen/dining area is a real bonus.

The owner Stefania is very friendly and always available to help if needed. I would highly recommend this property and would love to return again some day.

Outstanding Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely vacation home near Lucca in Tuscany. It was an outstanding location with a view of the hillsides and olive trees. We were so pleased with the host, the location, and the facilities.

The home has an incredible rustic charm. Fully refurbished, yet retaining the charm of a home built in the 1800s.

We cooked dinners several times as well as breakfast daily and the kitchen had everything we needed.

Your so close to all of northern Tuscany from this location - and close to La Spezia and Cinque Terre are just a day trip away as well.

This was the perfect option for a quiet country retreat that's still close enough to the famous sites in northern Tuscany to be able to take day trips.

We loved this spot and can recommend it without reservations to family travelers or a romantic getaway.

Traditional flair with modern interior

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house in summer 2015. The house is built in a traditional Tuscany style, yet the interior seems pretty new and valuable. The house lies in a quiet neighborhood, next to an Olive grove. The host Stefania is charming and was always eager to give us tips for sightseeing and shopping nearby. Our personal favorite was the really nice patio with the outdoor kitchen and the grill. For our next trip to the Tuscany, we'll definitely try to get the house again. A litte addition to the description: At the house, you find two sunloungers.
