About Gemignani Lisa

From an early age I wanted to 'live' in Tuscany, and I'm very attached to my roots, as I was taught by my parents and my grandparents.

Growing up then I met my wife, and has strengthened my and our Tuscan spirit, to the point of wanting to share with others. From our shared passion was born the idea of ​​buying a house and planning our dream ...

Gemignani Lisa purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Gemignani Lisa chose Media Valle del Serchio

Ever since we started to renovate the first brick of the house, our dream was to create a place where our guests can feel at ease, and entering, breathed an atmosphere of genuine familiarity.

For us, the Tuscany is part of our lives: it is the air we breathe and the food we eat. And it's nice to know what it means to the tourists 'live' Tuscany ....

What makes this cottage unique

Each house is divided when the house has its own characteristic:

Casa Cielo has a sun terrace protected by stone walls that ensure the tranquility and superb views.

And 'the angle that best characterizes it .......

Casa Terra has a Tuscan kitchen with stone fireplace. A room truly superb.

Casa Pietra as well as being beautiful and in Tuscan style, has exclusive sauna and hot tub.

While Casa Il Nido is ideal for a romantic break in two

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the drive up to Bovegilio was stunning, nerves of steel for those who are not used to the winding roads. The higher you go, the more breathtaking the view gets. The house itself is exactly what you get, when you have seen it online. Charming and cozy. Away from it all, is really what you have here. Thank you Lisa and Luca, especially for the wifi!

We very comfortable and truly enjoyed our stay!

Great stay in Tuscany

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying here. The drive up the hill was not short! We took a lot of day trips and it felt really long going up the hill every night ( about 1/2 hr). But the views were amazing and the house itself was fantastic. We did get a knock on the door from the people below us saying that they could hear every step and word we said. This made us a little on edge as we are not very loud people, however the soccer finals were in full swing and the walls are apparently pretty thin. All in all it was a really nice place to stay. Thanks so much

The absolute best in all of Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

Anyone going to Tuscany would do themselves an injustice if they didn't stay here for more than a week. The villa is by far the best of our lodgings on our month long trip in Itally. Every detail was put into this villa by the Owners , Lisa and Luca! Antiques through out down to the finest of touches. A view that's unbeatable, and owners that were extremely kind, and non intrusive! The Villa, and landlords were beyond excellent! We will be back to enjoy this villa for 2-3 weeks next time, and bring some friends along for this heavenly estate in Tuscany!! If only there were ten stars, the villa would be an eleven!

Fairy tale come to life!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this amazing property! Not only were Luca & Lisa easy to work with right from our first inquiry, but they were helpful every step along the way. They even arranged with my mother-in-law to receive birthday cards for me and set them up in the kitchen with a bottle of wine. What a special and thoughtful touch.

Casa Pietra itself was breathtaking. It was the best combination of ancient and modern in all the best ways. The interior was rustic, with stone walls and wooden beams, but all the modern amenities were in place. The view of the mountains from the kitchen was second to none. Another amazing part was the hot tub and sauna, which was a perfect way to relax after the cold rainy days.

If you're thinking of renting here, just be aware it is really very remote, at the top of the mountain. There is a little tiny store and a restaurant about 10 minutes away, but the nearest town is about 30 minutes away. That also means there is no noise, traffic, crowds, etc. It is a perfect place to get away from it all.

We would go back in a heartbeat if we were ever in the Lucca area again. Thank you Luca & Lisa!

Beautiful Boveglio!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property tucked in the mountains north of Luca. Quiet, providing a taste of the real Italy. The property was clean, beds comfortable, and was a perfect respite after a busy day of site seeing.
