We had a lovely stay in this villa. It was very comfortable and well equiped. It is set amongst the olive groves in the countryside but within walking distance to the local village. We enjoyed sitting out in the evening surrounded by olive trees full of fireflies. It is a truly beautiful location. The owners are very nice and were extremely helpful - especially when we had a flat tyre! The location is wonderful, being close to Lucca, Pisa and the beach all driving distance of no more that 20 mins. The beach is part of a national park and is very unspoilt. There are well marked hiking routes that can be taken from the villa itself up into the mountains. All in all, a very beautiful location.
We have just spent a fantastic week in this lovely villa in Santa Maria del Giudice. The villa was very comfortable and well equiped. Located between Pisa and Lucca the villa was perfect to return to after a day in the city or at the beach. It was very peaceful and was an absolute pleasure to sit in the evening outside and watch all the fireflies in the trees. There was also plenty of opportunity to walk into the mountains and the routes were very well marked. The owners - Pno and Daniela were absolutely delightful and very helpful, especially when we had a flat tyre! They were the perfect hosts. We felt that this place was amongst one of the nicest places we had stayed and would recommend it to anyone.
We stayed in 'L'Oliveto' from Sept. 1-15. L'Oliveto is situated in Santa Maria del Giudice, a small town located about 8km from Lucca, 10km approx from Pisa airport and about 30mins from Viareggio.
The house is situated on a hill, immersed in nature. It's very cozy and practical, it has a lovely veranda where we always had breakfast and lunch. 1 of the bathrooms has a bath tub which was very much appreciated by our 2 year-old son :) There is no washing machine but there is a laundry (5mins drive) open till midnight (1 wash - EUR4!).
The swimming pool is about 50mt from the house and has a wonderful panoramic view.
It's a 10mins ride from Esselunga (a very big supermarket). We also did our shopping in a minimarket in the village a couple of times. The minimarket (next to the school) is owned by an extremely helpful young couple and they are well stocked.
///Don't buy olive oil in the supermarket but from Pino and Daniela, they make a delicious olive oil///
Daniela, Pino and Angelica (their 9 year-old daughter) are lovely people, very sweet, always available to meet our requests, they even lent us some toys for our 2 year old!!
They live in another house behind the house they rent out, they have 3 ponies and they give pony-riding lessons to children.
On our way from Pisa airport to Santa Maria del Giudice we had lunch in a nice restaurant in San Giuliano Terme, on your left hand right before the tunnel called 'Il Pozzo'. The food was very nice and Giacomo (the owner) a very nice guy. We liked it so much we went there another time for dinner.
If you are looking for a quiet place a short distance away from all Tuscany's highlights then this is your location!!
We had a fantastic stay at this wonderful location and Daniela and Pino know perfectly how to welcome with a lot of kindness while protecting our intimacy. Our children were even able to ride their ponies. The house is equipped well, comfortable, in the peace, and in a fabulous landscape. And it is only situated in 10 minutes of the leaningTower of Pisa or the very attractive city of Lucca, and in 20 mn of the beach.
Confermo che la posizione della casa è veramente unica,letteralmente immersa, come dice la descrizione, in un uliveto.
La casa è pulita ed ordinata, la biancheria fornita pure, è fresca e profumata.Purtroppo nel periodo in cui siamo stati noi, il clima non è stato dei migliori, faceva un po' freddo ed ha piovuto.
I proprietari, anche se abitano vicino alla casa, non sono per niente invadenti, ma comunque molto disponibili ed appena gli abbiamo chiesto qualcosa si sono subito adoperati per aiutarci.
Infatti visto che faceva un po' freddo, abbiamo chiesto se ci potevano fare accendere il camino che si trova nel soggiorno...ci hanno procurato la legna ed addirittura a volte ce lo hanno fatto trovare già acceso quando noi tornavamo più tardi.
Ci è dispiaciuto molto non poter cenare all'aperto e non poter usare la piscina dalla quale si gode un bellissimo panorama. Un'altra cosa molto caratteristica, almeno per noi che viviamo in piena città, è il fatto che le due pony, Trilly e Vera, vivono libere nella proprietà e la mattina si affacciano alla veranda aspettando una carotina od un pezzo di mela...veramente simpatiche!
Un unica pecca...quando c'è il temporale la luce salta e quindi tutto ciò che va a corrente non funziona come la tv , il forno e la stufa a pellet che manda i termosifoni.Comunque devo dire che è stato ugualmente piacevole cenare a lume di candela e sorseggiare il buon vino toscano alla fiamma del camino....un immersione nella quiete che rigenera lo spirito.
Ci ritorneremo sicuramente, magari con degli amici e soprattutto in piena estate!
Die Lage des urigen Objektes ist wie beschrieben inmitten eines Olivenhains. Der Pool liegt ein paar Meter höher und der Ausblick ins Tal ist wirklich toll. Die grosse Terrasse m Schattenlädt zum verweilen ein.
Die Ausstattung entspricht den Angaben. Ein zusätzlicher Hinweis - das zweite, kleinere Schlafzimmer hat ein Stockbett für 2 Personen und die zusätzliche Schlafcouch ist schon ein bisschen in die Jahre gekommen.
Der Aufenthalt bei Daniela und Pino war sehr erholsam und die Gastgeber waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
Das Haus war sauber, bis auf kleine Abstriche bei der Küche. Bettwäsche und Handtücher waren sauber und frisch.
Der Auslauf auf dem großen Grundstück war für unseren Hund ideal.
Ein Hundestrand befindet sich in Torre Del Lago, 55049 Torre del Lago, Provinz Lucca, allerdings müssen Hunde an der Leine geführt werden.
Alles in Allem haben wir die Einsamkeit genossen und wenn man Abwechslung will - auf nach Lucca, Pisa und Umgebung.
The house is situated in the countryside of Santa Maria del Giudice but about 600 m from the town center. Here are a post office, bars, restaurants, florist, hairdresser, barber, newsagent, butcher and pharmacy. Banks and shops are located at 8 km.You can hike along the paths of passage from Dante or see romanich churches. Who want to enjoy a day at the spa may choose to go or in San Giuliano (5km) or in Bagni di Lucca 30 km.
