Review for stay from 02 September 2017 to 09 September 2017

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa with very special views over the tuscan hills. Excellent pool and interior was superb. Isolated which provides real peace and tranquility. Nearest shops are 10 minutes drive and we drove say 25 minutes to a beautiful restaurant and 30 minutes to Lucca...a very cool medieval city. Great memories in a truly unquestionably classy place.

Review for stay from 03 June 2017 to 03 June 2017

  • 5 of 5

Gran Burrone has been purpose built for holiday letting until the owner decides to retire there I think. The house is well built with good plunbing and electrics - we didn't test the heating but hot water was available so it can be assumed to work. There is no air conditioning though I doubt it would be needed at that altitude. We didn't use the jaccuzi. The swimming pool was in good repair with a strongly fixed ladder. It was cleaned using a robot twice a week. There is a feature medieval banquet dining hall which is interesting but we didn't disturb it.The rest of the house is decorated and furnished in old traditional style to a high spec . but has satellite TV and WiFi as well.

The views from the grounds and most windows are fantastic. La Rocca was originally a strategic watch tower location covering several valleys. The remains of the castle are close to Gran Burrone.

The garden is well designed and kept with mature plants and bushes and the use of pine trees gives privacy.

La Rocca is a small hamlet with steep narrow lanes between the houses. That means car access is limited and thought should be given to age and fitness of residents. In Gran Burrone's case the car has to be left in a communal park and access continued on foot. This includes hauling of luggage and heavy shopping. Anyone who is seriously overweight or has had a recent illness would not be comfortable, especially in the heat. There are no amenities within walking distance, so transport is essential. I don't intend to paint a bleak picture - we are in our 70's and managed fine, but others may find it difficult if unfit. Paulo the owner and Emma who cleans twice a week, were lovely people and very helpful. All in all a great venue, but if you want to see a mountain view, you need to climb it first!
