About the property

Rustic environment and furnishings with all modern conveniences

The old stone farmhouse “Vignale” stands on the gentle southern slopes of the hills about 10 km north of the city of Lucca near the village of Segromigno in Monte. The farmhouse, on two floors, has been lovingly restored to preserve the original rustic character with chestnut beamed ceilings and terracotta floors but has all modern conveniences. It consists of two fully independent units, one of which is for rent while the other is lived in by the owners. The rental unit has a comfortable living room (including TV with satellite reception), a fully equipped cooking corner including dishwasher & microwave while on the first floor the unit sleeps four persons (two bed rooms) with one and a half bathrooms. All windows are equipped with mosquito nets. Free Wi-Fi is available.

Another full bathroom is located in the side building close to the swimming pool.

The whole area around “Vignale” is very quiet and peaceful. It offers the guests peaceful surroundings in the midst of its large olive grove or at the edge of the large pool (10 m x 5 m, with electrolysis and therefore no Chlorine). Since there is only one rental unit, the swimming pool is practically fully at the exclusive disposal of the guests. A grill for barbeque is available in the garden and a wood oven (pizza oven) is in the back of the house.

“Vignale” is very “children friendly”. They will find plenty to keep them happy on the large property, playing on the fields among the trees or in the pool with the many toys and pool accessories provided, jumping in the trampoline or, the little ones, playing on the swing. Parents can take them to the fine sand beaches of Viareggio (30 Km) or to the “Parco di Pinocchio” at the village of Collodi (10 Km), where the author of the famous children’s book “Pinocchio” lived and worked. Bicycles can be rented in Lucca or in the vicinity of “Vignale” and there are quiet country roads in the slopes around “Vignale” for bicycle rides, for jogging or Nordic Walking.

Segromigno offers a supermarket, butcher and other shops while the local baker delivers fresh bread to the house every morning. If you prefer not to cook, there are numerous pizzerias and restaurants within 2 or 3 km of Vignale.

Beautiful and clean property in a stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday staying at this property. The house was spotless and had everything we needed and the pool was fantastic in a beautiful setting. Claudio and Karin were amazing and really helped make the holiday so great. They recommended places to go and made restaurant reservations for us. The property is a great base for exploring Tuscanny and we would love to return again.

Small gem in hills of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this apartment in Tuscany, mainly due to the unfailing kindness and help of the owners Claudio and Karin. Getting around was easy as Lucca was only ten minutes away and had direct trains to Florence. The area was peaceful and the pool and views a delight. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

Great house under the Toscany Sun

  • 5 of 5

Dear Anna & Claudio,

Thank you for your warm welcome and hospathelity during our vacation at your place. Are you looking for a house in a small local community near Pisa? With a own very nice swimming pool, lovely garden among the olive trees and great surroundings. Than this is your place.

The house is very comfortable with sits in front and back of the house. Nice cools rooms and because the house is situated against the hills a cool wind in the evening. A nice walk through a little forest to a bar when you can have a nice drink or icecream.

The house and garden are very well maintained. The hosts are always available to help or advice you with everything you need.

I can recommend this place to every one.

Beautiful Vignale

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days at Vignale and had the best holiday at this beautiful place. The house and surroundings turned out to be everything we had imagined - and then some. Claudio and Karin were the best hosts and they helped us when our car broke down and with the tricky Italian language.

The property is beautifully located and our two kids (aged 6 and 9) made good use of the swimmingpool and garden.

The holiday home is filled with all amenities and we did not miss anything. It was perfectly suited for two grown-ups and two children.

I would recommend everyone to spend time at Vignale.

Holiday amongst the Tuscan olives

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed at LaVignale several years ago and were keen to return both to relax in the gardens/pool area and to visit places we had missed the first time, as well as return to some others. This time we were 4 adults but there was enough room for us, especially as with good weather we could eat out until late each September evening, albeit sometimes with a fleece on.

A car is essential but it isn't far to various facilities. The property has a sense of isolation despite being adjacent to other houses and the view over the olives up to the hills is outstanding. Our favourite restaurant was Giomo's up the hill, an easy walk home but really a drive up!

Claudio recommended travel to Florence by train and parking in Sienna at the station car park, both of which were ideal. Sienna is nearer than you think.

Overall a lovely holiday and maybe one day we'll be back for a third time?

Beautiful Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from the most amazing 10 days at villa Vignale.

Firstly we want to thank Claudio and his wife Karin for accommodating us for the 10 days as it is usually not an option. From the minute we arrived the hospitality we received was 100% from booking restaurants to fresh fruit and vegetables from their garden.

The location is very peaceful and quiet yet only 10 minutes from shops and restaurants .We have stayed in many different Tuscan villas over the last ten years and this is easily the best one so far. The villas had everything you need, a real home from home. The grounds and pool area are of a very high standard and immaculately clean. There is plenty of room around around the pool for relaxing in the sun or the shade. The pool towels are provided which is another plus factor, also helps with luggage weight. Each morning the bread man comes to the gate at 10:30 - what a service.

We had such a great holiday we will certainly be returning here in the future. Well done to Claudio and Karin this is certainly a labour of love, you have created a little piece of heaven for us holiday makers.

“Vignale” is ideally located for guests who wish to visit the many art centres and natural beauty spots of Tuscany. We suggest a visit to the lively historical city of Lucca with its Etruscan and Roman remains (Amphitheatre) and full circle of medieval walls (it’s great to take a bicycle ride on the walls). Its cafes, restaurants and elegant shopping streets are additional attractions. Pisa with its “Leaning Tower” is only 34 km away, Florence 70 km, Siena 120 km, San Gimignano and its many towers 100 km. Viareggio and its famous beaches can be reached in little more than half an hour. The picturesque “Cinque Terre” are only 60 km away, the marble quarries of Carrara a mere 50 km. Further south, in Piombino you can catch the ferry that will take you to Elba. For mountain scenery, Natural Parks and small mountain villages, the whole valley known as “Garfagnana” lies behind “Vignale”.

Golf: In the vicinity of Lucca there are three easily reachable golf courses: one near Pietrasanta, one in the vicinity of Migliarino near the coast and one near Montecatini.

A working farm: The “Vignale” farm is operational and produces some of the best olive oil (Olio extra vergine di oliva) that has made Lucca famous world-wide for its quality olive oil.
