Al Mennucci was originally an old hayloft which has recently been converted into a delightful cottage. It is located in a superb position, high in the hills, 15 kms to the south-east of Lucca, and surrounded by olive groves and pine trees. There are fantastic views over the countryside and the plain of Montecatini in the distance. Both the house and the pretty garden are exceptionally well-maintained by the owners, and the interiors are equipped with all modern facilities. The swimming pool, situated to one side of the house, is in a perfect position to enjoy the beautiful views. Close to the pool area, there is a stone-built barbecue and pizza oven, an outdoor shower and an outdoor dining area. Near the driveway, about 20 metres from the house, there is small guesthouse with a double bedroom and bathroom. The secluded position and the fact that it is accessible by its private road ensure peace and tranquillity for the guests of Al Mennucci. This road lasts for 1 km and it is unsealed, therefore not suitable for low sport cars.

Wir 6 Person und ein Hund haben einen sehr schönen und erholsamen Urlaub dort verbracht. Ich kann es nur weiter empfehlen. Sehr ruhig und Idyllisch, super Ausblick. Wir sind sehr nett von der Eigentümerin Paula empfangen worden. Die Anfahrt ist zwar sehr holprig aber langsam schafft es jeder normale PKW
It was an excellent week. Everything was just perfect.
It was very quiet place which was very pleasant.
We loved Al Mennucci! Perfect location, gorgeous view, wonderful setting...best vacation ever! Just be aware the road is a bit tough to navigate up to the house, but if you can rough it up, it is worth it!
We had a fantastic time at Al Mennucci! Right from the start - the instructions to get to this Villa were fantastic - very detailed. As Al Mennucci is a bit hard to find (quite isolated and quiet - a good thing) having these instructions where extremely valuable. The road up to Al Mennucci is very rough - you definitely need a good vehicle. Once there - the villa is everything you see in the photos. The pool is wonderful. We used the Outdoor Wood or Coal Burning BBQ every night. All beds and all rooms are nice. The Kitchen is extremely well equipped. The villa is incredibly clean and neat - and someone comes every Mon,Wed and Fri to clean up.
After you drive down the hill to the main road - there are good and inexpensive restaurants within a 5min drive as well as a well stocked grocery store (a EuroSpar).
We had a fantastic time - and we are already planning our trip for next year. Thank you Al Mennucci!
Tolle Lage mit einem wunderschönen Blick in die Weite. Das Haus liegt sehr romantisch auf einer Anhöhe, die Naturstrasse ist für geübte Fahrer kein Problem, Geländewagen bevorzugt. Sehr ruhig und mit allem Komfort ausgestattet. Anfang Oktober konnte man den Pool noch benutzen. Wir haben die Ruhe und die Freiheit mit unseren Hunden sehr genossen. Die Inhaberin ist überaus freundlich und hat sogar für uns eingekauft und gekocht, Italienisch Kentnisse sind von Vorteil. Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert.
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] Great location with a beautiful view into the distance. The house is very romantic on a hill, the gravel road is no problem for experienced riders, preferable with off-road vehicles. Very quiet and equipped with every comfort. In early October you could still use the pool. We have enjoyed the peace and freedom with our dogs very much. The owner is extremely friendly and has even made some shopping and cooked for us; some knowledge of Italian language is an advantage. Overall, highly recommended.
Very quiet and comfortable for the four of us who stayed. Paola is very helpful and it is a very good location for Lucca Pisa Florence excursions.
