Situated on a hill in the Tuscan countryside, this farmhouse property offers peace and tranquility for you and your guests. Olive groves surround the property, and there’s a garden and terraces for enjoying the views during an al fresco meal. Take a dip in the private pool, or play a round of bocce ball with your guests.

It is a beautiful house with a great kitchen for preparing meals. We have rented a number of houses before and this had the best stocked kitchen (dishes, cutlery, pots and pans) of any of them.
The gate to the property broke at one point and our rental car got stuck trying to enter the driveway. We were not able to access CNN. Bats flew into two of the bedrooms at night when the windows were open. Cars beep when driving on the very narrow roads near the property.
Lucca is a great town--not too overrun with tourists but with lots of good shops/restaurants/piazzas.
Nearby Events or Locales:
San Martino in Freddana. Not within walking distance, partly because the roads are narrow. It's probably also too far for most people and the return walk would be all uphill.
Tips or Restaurants:
Everyone should be reminded that all villas come without any food, extra toilet paper, etc.
Can't use the GPS there--wouldn't work. Written directions were good.
Check In Out:
Appliances should have written directions on them. It is impossible to remember the very brief description given at check in. The on site person was responsive but spoke no English so we basically had to guess what to do.
