Fantastic home in Lucca
5 days, which we spent at Rossana's vacation home, were really great.
We were 11 people. House is big to provide enough space for everyone. House is well maintained and very clean.
Kitchen is fully equipped: whatever we needed, we were able to find there.
Garden around the house is beautiful and very spacious too.
House is located right outside of Lucca. There are several good restaurants around, so it's not needed to go to the city center for a dinner.
Rossana is a very pleasant person too.
We enjoyed our stay a lot and planning to return some time :)
ti ringrazio moltissimo per le tue parole.
Posso solo ricambiare.
Hai lasciato la casa in ordine perfetto.
Hai avuto un rispetto della casa sicuramente maggiore di quello che normalmente
Sei un ospite collaborativo e cortese. Un grazie speciale a tua figlia che mi ha aiutato, nonostante la giovane età.
Spero di vederti di nuovo e magari in un periodo in cui puoi godere di più del meraviglioso clima Toscano.
A large family reunion brought us to Lucca. After extensively researching numerous properties via vaious rental sites, we chose this property. The property was perfect for our family (6 adults and 2 kids) and we will be returning. The spacious and private grounds, outdoor dining under the pergola, pizza oven, pool and views are incredible. We felt very comfortable with the property and Rossanna was available to answer any questions. She is an exceptional host and takes very good care of the property. Our two girls ages 6 and 7 were welcomed by Rossanna and we really appreciated her friendly, accommodating, and warm personality.
The description of "Rustico" is not what I would describe as rustic by American standards- it is a charming farmhouse that would be better described as plush and updated with comfortable living spaces and that are family friendly. Everything was in good working order and the air conditioning in the bedrooms and in the main living area are a luxury compared to other villas we saw that other family members were renting. The kitchen is fully equipted and easy for entertaining.
Having the property adjacent to a vineyard, with large grassy area and gated driveway provides a setting that feels very private, yet you are a quick and easy 5 minute drive from the walls of Lucca. We initially were hoping that we could walk or bike to Lucca, but the roads are not ideal for families. Although, you will see a lot of road bikers on the main "wine" road. We enjoyed the proximity to the bar/coffee/pastry shop at 2 minutes walk from the house. The house felt like a retreat and vacation from the busy summer months in Italy. Next time we will stay for two weeks in order to fully enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this property. If you are looking to experience the countryside of Lucca as a local and enjoy the sweet life of Italy THIS is the perfect property.
The Rose Family were exceptionally kind people who stayed in my home and treated it with the same love that they would have their very own. Hosting them was like hosting my friends.
You all truly moved me, especially your adorable children, you have been one of my best guests that I have ever hosted!
I hope with all my heart that I will meet you once again!
Where do I begin. The pictures and descriptions of the property don't begin to explain how large and beautiful this location is. We vacationed with our 2 daughters and their families, 6 adults and 4 children total, and there was more than enough room for all. The house is three levels. The bottom level has 2 bedrooms, 2 sitting rooms, and a large bathroom.
The next level (entry) has a bedroom, hugh kitchen, dining room, and family room. All the floors are stone and the walls and ceilings have wood beams everywhere.
The upper level has 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms.
Outside is amazing, with 2 separate shaded areas for gathering and dining. There are plants, trees, herbs, etc around the property. There is a green lawn area the size of a soccer field. Everything is beautiful.
Lucca is about ten minutes away by car. About a block away from the house, there is a bar/coffee place, small corner store, and butcher. There was also a vegetable/fruit stand that opened about 5 days a week, with fresh produce available. Not sure if he shows up all year. Train station about 10 minutes away by car.
Bottom line, would highly recommend this site.
Great location and property for family holiday
We stayed at the villa Tre Cancelli for a week at the end of August 2011 and really enjoyed our stay. The villa has been completely renovated in typical rustic style, very tastefully done with quality finishes. It was very clean and well-maintained. The rooms are large and comfortable with a feeling of plenty of space for up to 11 people, with many different places to sit and eat. The gardens are extensive and attractive and there is a feeling of space all around with views of the vineyards to the north. The outside eating area is covered by a pergola and vines and overlooks the pool area, which is great for children and teenagers.
The villa is about 5 minutes drive from the centre of Lucca and within a couple of minutes walking distance from a bar, grocery/bakery shop and butchers. Rossanna who owns the villa looked after us very well, and even showed us how to work the pizza oven - we spent one evening lighting the fire and baking pizzas on the stone, not as easy as you might think!
We were a group ranging in age from 14 to 83 but found that there was plenty to do there to keep everyone happy. We hired bikes in Lucca to go round the walls and through the town, went to Florence on the train for the day, visited the local vineyard, went to a local antiques market and an open air evening concert in the town.
Lucca is such a lovely place full of interesting little shops, and good just to wander around and sit outside the cafes or explore the churches. We needed another week to go to the coast or up into the hills which will have to wait until next time.
Beautiful property with lovely grounds and view
Our two families had a wonderful week here with our 5 teenage children. The property is very spacious and newly renovated, whilst maintaining its character. The grounds were also very spacious and private with plenty of space for ball games as well as lounging beside the pool and eating under the pergola. Small bar and convenience store within walking distance good for buying breakfast supplies. Everything was well maintained, well equipped, spotlessly clean and in working order. The owners speak good English, live nearby and were very friendly and anxious to help, but did not invade our privacy. We did not find any restaurants in walking distance. The pool is brand new and is the same depth all across which was fine for us but may be an issue if you have small children. The road is fairly busy, but the house is set well back from the road and there are lots of mature trees in the grounds so there is no traffic noise. When you can tear yourself away from the beautiful house and peaceful garden and pool, Lucca has lots to offer and the coast, Pisa and the Garfagna mountains are all within easy day trip distance-beware small winding mountain roads and Italian drivers! We took the train from Lucca to Florence-inexpensive and easy but not very fast. If you are looking for somewhere in Northern Tuscany that is pretty and peaceful but not remote, which provides a good good base for exploring and has a beautiful small town nearby, this is the place!
Hele fijne plek voor verblijf bij Lucca en nabij de kust
Een prachtig en keurig verzorgd huis waar je fijn met een grote groep kunt verblijven. De kamers liggen op drie verdiepingen, waardoor je ook met meerdere families allemaal nog je privacy hebt. Het uitzicht aan de achterkant is heel mooi; heuvels en wijnranken. Om het huis een keurig onderhouden enorme tuin (ca. 4.500m2) met alle ruimte voor de kinderen om te spelen. Aan het huis zit een fijne overdekte buitenruimte, waar het heerlijk zitten is als het (laat) op de avond wat afkoelt. Je bent in vijf minuten in Lucca; de zee ligt op iets meer dan een half uurtje.
Verhuurster is zeer behulpzaam en spreekt goed Engels. Kortom: een aanrader.
This beautiful farmhouse is only 2 kms away from the famous walled city of Lucca with it's tree lined avenue circumventing the town. It is a fascinating area with picturesque countryside, olive groves, vineyards and many famous antique villas nearby to visit. Further afield is the well known seaside town of Torre del Lago where the famous composer Giacomo Puccini had one of his residencies which is open to the public. There is also the theatre where his operas are performed every year at the edge of Lake Massciucoli. Very near the coastal towns of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi. Very near to the mountain area known as the Garfagnana
