An amazing place to spend a week escaping. Beautiful house - ideal for a small family - had everything we needed to cater for ourselves. Very clean and well presented. Pool was rather lush (and chlorine-free). Quiet and dark at night and not overlooked (though not totally isolated). Enrico was friendly and very helpful. House was exactly as described but even better than expected. Within 20 minutes drive of the very special city of Lucca, with its ancient tree-lined walls, narrow streets, towers, churches, galleries and shops. Very friendly and safe city with lots of parking just outside the city walls. Also plenty of supermarkets for self-catering. Road to villa was narrow in places with some tight corners, but was quiet throughout and was fine if taken carefully. Driveway to villa was a bit steep and narrow, but we managed with a small car. Area around Lucca was great - lots of historic villas and some beautiful Tuscan scenery. Just over an hour by train to Florence. Under an hour's drive to coast or to Pisa. Thanks for everything - would definitely recommend :)
The photos and description in the HomeAway website are inviting, but the actual house itself - and the setting - are even more so. The house, set on a hillside in olive groves, was clean, spacious, and cozy. From the house, the views of the surrounding hills and the town below were stunning. The garden and pool area was well maintained and very pleasant. Communicating with the owner and owner was easy to do.
From this house, we drove to Florence several times, Carrara and Pietrasanta, and Bolgheri. We went several times into Lucca, 10 min. away, with many restaurants and shops and an old fortified wall surrounding the old town.
We would definitely recommend this property to others - we may even return ourselves in the not-too-distant future!
