A lovely villa with a gorgeous garden and pool. We had a very relaxing week there.
We loved Casa Tonio. It is a beautiful villa in a quiet, pretty setting in the hills above Lucca. It was perfect for our family of five. the owner was very nice and spent time showing us around the olive groves surrounding the house and giving us a history of the land. A family friend of his provided us with a home cooked meal that was one of the best meals we had in Italy. We would highly recommend Casa Tonio and would like to return some day.
Casa Tonio is set amongst old olive groves overlooking the nearby village church, and located some 25 minutes by car from the town of Lucca. The local village cafe is a 10 minute walk. The casa comfortably sleeps six people, but the owners are currently in the midst of an extension which looks like it will double the capacity. Aesthetically, Casa Tonio is straight out of a Tuscan travel book. If we had a complaint, and it was only minor, it was the lack of bed pillows (one for each person only).
