About Giulia and Donatella

I am a teacher. I like my nice house. I like tending the garden in the peace of green Versilia Hills. I hope also you.

Giulia and Donatella purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Giulia and Donatella chose Lucca Area

You will understand why it is a special place: the nature surrounding the house, the small ancient village, the peace and privacy of the small garden full of flowers and herbs, the spectacular view. It is the typical Tuscan country house but with all the comforts, without traffic because the road ends at the house, but at 500 meters from the main of local shops.

What makes this cottage unique

La Tinaia is located in the Versilia countryside, with olive trees, small groves and woods, it is surrounded by green hills with a magnificent view. The garden and veranda are beautiful spaces where you can relax and have breakfast .

Very relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent very relaxing fourten days in Donatella's appartement (downstairs, one big room plus bathroom). Though it was very hot outside, the room kept temperature (windows closed during the day), so that we could sleep comfortly under thin linen. We enjoyed the the lovely garden, the herbs like rosemary, sage, laurel and thyme (wonderful for the cooking), the lizzards, butterflys and geckos, the peaceful evenings, sitting outside under the lamp, reading and drinking delicious Italian wines. We'd love to return some day!!!
