Tranquil, well-located, and immaculately maintained property

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at Villa Niccolai in June 2017 and could not have been more pleased with the experience. There were nine of us (representing three generations of our family), and the house amply accommodated us. The Ronchi family are wonderful hosts - they were gracious, helpful, and responsive. The home is spacious and airy and clean. The grounds are spectacular and pleasantly fragrant. The setting overall is tranquil and feels like an oasis, but we were still close to the main highway, grocery stores, and tourist sites (like Pisa, Florence, etc.) We took many day-trips from the train station in Altopascio, which was about a 10-15 minute drive from the villa. Our small children loved swimming every afternoon in the large, clean pool, which we found quite refreshing given the strength of the Tuscan sun. Stay here: You will not regret it. We are so thankful for our time at Villa Niccolai and for the memories made that that we will enjoy for the rest of our lives.

Beautiful villa and gardens

  • 5 of 5

This was a gorgeous villa with stunning garden and lovely big pool. We appreciated the pool toys Lorenzo gave us and had a lot of fun with them, particularly the penguin! We stayed here with 3 generations of our family and it was perfect. So much space. Also loved having an outside eating area which we used every night, enjoying meals and chatting together.

Large, spacious, lovely grounds

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the size, layout and facilities of the property, it gave a real sense of Italian Villa in the countryside. The owner was very helpful in arranging breakfast (cost covered by us) and the chef to come in twice, plus assisting in booking food at a local restaurant (5 min drive). Definitely need a vehicle to get to the villa and get out to the local villages/towns/countryside

Villa Niccolai

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent a beautiful weekend in this super gorgeous villa. The villa is amazing, 5 big bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, two living rooms with fireplaces, a big swimming pool with gazebo, and plenty of room to relax in the garden, laying in the sun. I also recommend the home cook, she cooked for us a dinner to die for, and prices are reasonable. The owner is really nice, and always happy to help out.

I cannot wait to go back.

Traumhafter Urlaub in der Toskana

  • 5 of 5

Wir (8 Erwachsene und 4 Kinder) genossen unsern Urlaub in der Villa Niccolai in vollen Zügen. Das Haus war traumhaft, genauso wie der Pool und die gepflegte Gartenanlage inkl. Spielplatz. Lorenzo, der Vermieter, war sehr nett, und stets hilfsbereit. Die Städte Lucca und Pisa und auch der Strand in Viareggio sind alle innerhalb von 45 min. erreichbar. Uns hat es wirklich an nichts gefehlt. Wir können das Haus nur weiterempfehlen!

La villa est excellent, le jardin un vrai parc des vacances de luxe.

  • 5 of 5

La villa est spacieux, bien agencé et très confortable. Le jardin est très grand, très bien entretenu et un vrai parc privé. La piscine est grande également bien entretenue avec des relaxes confortables et un abri soit sous la tonnelle soit les grand arbres à côté pour ceux qui craignent le soleil. Large terrasse bien agencée et barbecue à côté. Accueil chaleureux du propriétaire soucieux à assurer que nous étions bien installés. Des vacances formidables.
