Guestbook comments from the manager

We verbleven met 2 gezinnen 2 weken in Villa Gabrielli. Het is een zeer mooi huis op een fantastische locatie. Alle voorzieningen waren ruimschoots aanwezig.

Op elk moment van de dag kun je een plekje vinden om rustig in de schaduw te relaxen, of lekker zwemmen in het heerlijke zwembad. Mooie streek en als je de weg door rijd (ong 18km ) ben je midden in de natuur waar je een canyon in kunt lopen (Orrido di Botri). Ook de streek rond Volterra (100km) is als dagtrip prima te doen.

Al met al een super vakantie gehad in Bagni di Lucca.

Gina regelt alles ter plekke via mail of telefoon in geval van calamiteiten. Gina dankje, het was leuk je aan het einde van de vakantie nog even te ontmoeten. Ik hoop dat je ons in september mailt over het huis dichter bij Bagni di Lucca.

Groeten Stephan

The Tuscan vacation you've always dreamed of!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible 7 days at Villa Gabrielli!! There were 9 of us, 4 adults, 3 children, and 2 teenagers. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. It has all the amenities you would want and then more. Private fenced garden with inground pool, plenty of space for everyone, the rooms are very well appointed, the same for the living room and the kitchen. The house doesn't have air conditioning but you don't need it at all. We slept with some of the windows open (they have screens) and never felt cold or hot, just perfect. The outdoor area has a gazebo with table and chairs, a barbecue pit, swings, pool chairs, patio furniture, and an outdoor eating area off the kitchen for dining all fresco with a view of the Tuscan mountains, we took full advantage of everything. The house is very near Bagni di Lucca (10 minutes down the hill to town) which we loved. Bagni has everything you need, coffee shops, supermarket, bank, and great restaurants (ask Gina). People were very nice and the town is beautiful. And then there's Gina, our host, she could no be a more excellent host, it's honestly like having a longtime friend help you. She made everything easy and enjoyable. We arrived late at night so when we got to the house our kitchen and fridge were stocked with everything we needed or want, she made sure our time at Villa Gabrielli was something we would remember forever, and we will!! Gina even arranged to have a cake delivered to the house for my son's 6th birthday, Power Rangers and all:)

The house is about 45 minutes to Lucca, 1 hour to Pisa, 1 1/2 hours to Florence, and 1 1/2 to Cique Terre, so we did day trips which were perfect, we actually spent as much time in the house as we did sightseeing, that's how much we loved it. I hope you have the chance to stay at Villa Gabrielli, it will be one of the best vacations you'll ever have!

Serenity and peacefulness

  • 5 of 5

Villa Gabrielli is set high on a hill above the magical town of Bagni Di Lucca. I must say our initial drive up the mountain to find the villa was a little worrying as we had a large van and the road is quite narrow but once we found the villa we feel in love with it and the drive didn't seem to worry us anymore. We met with Alessandro the owner as Gina who organised our booking was away at the time, everything was perfect, Alessandro is lovely and nothing was too much trouble. We used the villa as our base and drove to so many places around Tuscany, we went to Siena, Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Cinque Terre. The last day we spent at the Villa enjoying the amazing view whilst the kids swam in the pool. The Villa was perfect for our family of 5 plus one set of grandparents. There is so much room on the grounds for kids to run around and the property is very safe as its fenced and there is a secure gate. We would highly recommend this Villa, Gina was so helpful, I emailed her with so many questions and she always responded so promptly. Bagni Di Lucca is one of my favourite little towns in Italy, a must to go visit.

A week at Villa Gabrielli

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation week at Villa Gabrielli was beautiful. Make sure you arrive in daylight as it is very difficult to find. God bless Gina, she came and found us and escorted us to the house at 10 pm the day we arrived. The house was fabulous, very well appointed with all the comforts of home and a beautiful pool to cool down in after longs hot days of sightseeing. The location, which is in the mountains 45 minutes north of Lucca, was so gorgeous and a great location to do many day trips. We went to Cinque Terra, Florence, Lucca and Pisa. Bagni di Lucca is a great little town, good restaurants, fun shopping and the girls spent a great day at the spa in town.

Amazing Villa Comes Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 week in July 2013 at Villa Gabriella. They were 9 of us in the party: 4 adults, 2 young adults, and 3 teenagers. Our stay was amazing. There was plenty of space for all of us to be together or sneak off and have some quiet time. The setting is very picturesque and quiet. The home is only two years old so it has the charm of an old Italian villa but the conveniences of a new home. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished and there are 3 bedrooms up with queen size beds and 2 bedrooms down with 1 queen bed and a pull-out couch. There is one full bath upstairs and two full baths down. The main floor is open concept with a generous kitchen, dining room and family room. There are many places to sit outside and all of the windows have screens and those lovely Italian shutters to keep the sun out and the fresh air in. No air conditioning required as the mountain location is 10 degrees cooler than the cities which were about 36 degrees (over 100F) when we visited. We took several day trips from the villa including Florence, Pisa and Lucca (my favourite). There are a few restaurants in town and one that does speak English and the food was excellent. Bagni di Lucca is very small but had a grocery store (Conad) with everything we needed. Some of the more adventurous in our party also did a quad trip just up the road and the reviews of the tour and sights were all excellent. I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had with Gina and Villa Gabrielli. I highly recommend the villa for the "particular" traveler as the house was beautiful inside and out, well-kept by a gardener and a pool service and was very clean. Pool towels were also provided and the villa is gated for extra security (not that it is needed). I look forward to one day visiting Villa Gabrielli again.

Stunning and Incredible Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot imagine how incredible this vacation home is! The pictures do not do it justice (as someone else mentioned). Every single imaginable thing we needed to dine at home in style was included in this home! Fit for royalty! Four bedrooms with plenty of space. We fit 7, but could have easily fit a few more. We had two couples, one single adult, and two teenagers. This is truly the BEST place to do day trips to Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre, and local wineries, etc. This is especially true if you want to spend a few days enjoying the company of friends and family. The town was only a short drive and had everything we needed. Gina and the owners were spot on. I cannot say enough! Gina is a remarkable person and I will call her any time I am in the Tuscany area. It was the middle of July and we didn't need air conditioning! The pool and grill area were so much fun! The furniture was high quality and made staying here like being at home! I cannot imagine that anyone could find a better deal! I think this house and Gina should be booked all year round!
