Overall:

We loved the property. The view was breathtaking. It was convenient to many sites like Florence, Cinque Terre, Pisa etc. It was our first "villa experience" and we were very happy. We liked the décor of the old building.

Enjoyed Most:

Having pre-arranged to have a local lady come in to cook us a typical Tuscan dinner was a real treat. The view from our villa was something we will not soon forget.

Enjoyed Least:

The drive up from Lucca was challenging and the driveway down to the villa is unlike anything we have ever experienced. Those are the only 2 dislikes. We loved everything else.

Surrounding Area:

We went to a winery and olive oil press just down the road. The views were truly outstanding. The few neighbours that we did meet were very pleasant.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The one part of Matraia was as easy walk. There was a small store, pharmacy and restaurant there. Very pretty walk.

Tips or Restaurants:

We should have read the fine print about nothing being open on Sunday so strongly suggest that future renters have some food. Great little place way up the mountain in Matraia North and the local place, The Colonade, was very good as well.

Directions:

We had a terrible time finding the place as there was a thunder storm going on and the sign was very small. Luckily, for us, we stopped at a house near the village and a fellow who spoke English helped us. GPS was not helping us that night.

Check In Out:

We got there late and although often in telephone contact, we never did meet our contact person as she left the key for us.

Overall:

We had an amazing stay at Casa Matraia. We were fortunate to have the owner greet us upon arrival and give us some great tips about the area.

Enjoyed Most:

The view was incredible of the rolling hills. My children loved swimming and relaxing in the beautiful pool after busy days in Rome and Venice. The restaurants nearby were fabulous!

Enjoyed Least:

It is quite a drive from Lucca and the dirt road down into the property is a little intimidating. We got a flat tire the first night driving into the property.

Surrounding Area:

Peace and quiet - to be able to take in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Also, we were close enough to drive to a few of the surrounding areas for day trips.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Matraia is the nearest small town. It was not within walking distance. You could walk to a few restaurants but to get to the market you had to get in the car.

Tips or Restaurants:

The house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The house has a guidebook available with a list of restaurants. We used this and were always pleased. I might suggest learning a bit of Italian to make ordering easier. In this area no one speaks any English, which is in itself wonderful! We were always the only Americans and we truly enjoyed being able to interact with the locals.

Check In Out:

Don't forget to have the right amount of cash for the deposit.

Map

The property is located two kilometers from the small village of Matraia where there are shops and restaurants. Lucca, which is fifteen kilometers away, is worth enjoying simply for its medieval charm, but there are also a number of interesting sights to visit. The Duomo di San Martino and the Church of San Michele in Foro are both gorgeous examples of period architecture, while the Casa di Puccini, where the composer was born, has been transformed into a small museum in his honor. You can also climb the 130-foot Torre Guinigi, but on the other hand viewing the tree-topped tower from below might be just as enjoyable… and a lot less work! Day trips can include Pisa, Viareggio, and Florence. Florence: 95 km Viareggio (beaches): 52 km Pisa: 42 km Lucca: 15 km Matraia: 2 km
