A lovely retreat. Friendly and helpful owners. Peaceful. Great location for day trips out especially by bike. Well equipped kitchen.
We spend an excellent holiday in the beautiful surroundings of Lucca. Everything was just perfect. The swimming pool was great, the people very friendly. We recommend this wonderful place to all of our friends!
We had a very cosy stay in this beautiful villa. The appartment was practical and nicely decorated... and we made the most of the swiming pool.... Only downer... Lots of mosquitos, and very poor internet connection.
Our family of 4 loved our stay in Orfeo this September. A car is virtually essential to stay here, which we hadn't realised initially, although our host Pino generously offered to drive us to the supermarket when we arrived by taxi. He also made a couple of good restaurant suggestions on the nights we didn't cook and we particularly loved "Le Corte". Additionally, we needed a doctor appointment unexpectedly & Pino was extremely helpful. The property is secluded and quiet, offering a wonderful pool and beautiful gardens. Orfeo was well-equipped, everything worked and the beds were fabulous. Beware of the mosquitoes as not all windows or doors have screens. We enjoyed several daytrips, with Cinque Terre about 1 hour away & Pisa even closer. The village of Volterra was fabulous, and of course Lucca itself is sublime. We highly recommend this property & wish we could have stayed much longer than a week. Our only gripe is the extra payment for cleaning. We feel the price should be all-inclusive.
Hi! We really liked the villa. For a comfortable stay is everything. Good pool. The friendly and attentive hosts. Did not want to leave. Be sure to come again.
A part of paradise! The owner is a wonderfull host, he invented the word friendly! The estate is beautifull, as well it's location as the estate itself. The house we rented was beautifull decorated and very well equiped. It was spacious, cool and very comfortable. A place we certainly want to return to. We had an fabulous holliday.
