Two families with 4 children aged 11 to 15
A Perfect, perfect week. A beautiful, spacious, clean house with a pretty garden and an ideal well sized quality pool.
We could not believe that we were staying in the property when we were being shown around. The pictures do not do the property justice.
We were given a folder of local information by the owner which gave suggestions of local villages and sites. We found several sites including a hill top fortress, Barga and local villages that we would gladly return too.
You will need your own transport to appreciate the local area.
Further a field we were able to visit Lucca and Pisa using the local train which is a two miniute walk away from the property and very cheap.
All food supplies could be found in the local village by foot and walking in to the shopping area to collect was a ideal start to the day.
There are plenty of local places to eat and we were lucky enough to choose a week where there was a local festival where we were made to feel welcome.
We felt that 1 week was not long enough to fully appreciate all that was in and around the area and would recommend to anybody a visit Villa Piazza
I booked this lovely villa for a family celebration. Wow what a place, more than enough space for the 10 people who stayed. Great location in the middle of Piazza Al Serchio. I would definitely love to come back again.
We rent the house with some of our friends, in total we were three famillies and had enough space for all of us!
The house is clean and really offers all you would need for a good holiday!
The area is just a little bit calm, not enough acticities for children... but nothing to do with the house! ;o)
Thank you for your review. We are glad you loved the house and gave it a 5 star review! We hope to welcome you again.
NB - For future guests, do note there is not lots to do for children in the sense of funfairs etc. and activities are rural, but we have lots of guests with children who come again and again to enjoy swimming and playing in the river; the verrucole interactive displays at the fortress; the treeclimbing and zipwire park (great for all ages from little ones right up to very fit adults, due to the differing courses); cycling around the walls at Lucca; a day at the beach; horseriding; the wind caves; the rockclimbing and river canyoining adventure park etc This is if one can drag the children away from the pool!

Very impressive with immaculate gardens and pool
We were a group of two families who had a lovely stay at this property. The property was spacious with ample facilities for a large group. The gardens and pool area were absolutely lovely and immaculately maintained, the heated pool was also a real winner with the kids! In addition to the the owners were lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed Rita's tiramasu and creme brulee.
Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear that you found the house well equipped for your large group and the pool and gardens immaculate. We're also happy that your children liked the heated pool, and you enjoyed Rita's desserts! She would be delighted to welcome you again. Lorraine at Tuscan-retreats
An amazing Italian Villa with great pool.
The Villa in Piazza al Serchio is a lovely place to stay with a big family.
The property is well located an has an amazing swimming pool to relax. During the whole day the pool has sunshine. The village is without any tourism and the local people are very friendly. Prices of food and beverages are very low. The owner of the villa mrs. Rita is taking good care of her visitors. She surprised us with several local foods. The property is very clean. The interior is typical Italian old style. By train you can travel cheap and easy to the touristic cities like Lucca, Pisa, Florence. Overall a very nice location for a Italian Holiday.
Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the sunny pool and the local food that Rita surprised you with. We're glad that you thought the prices for food and drink were low and the locals were friendly. We would love to welcome you again. Lorraine at Tuscan-retreats
Fantastic property and pool in beautiful village
We had a wonderful stay in Piazza al Serchio. The house is extremely spacious with 2 kitchens, 5 big bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The garden and pool-area is the best of all! Lots of space to play and the pool is large and clean. Rita and Carlo took good care of us. Rita even came over with cakes and tiramisu 3 times in one week! The village and area around is beautiful, food is cheap and the train station is 10 min walk away. Very convenient for trips to Lucca and the caves in Aqui Terme. I will definetely recommend this property!
Villa Piazza is situated in the midst of the village of Piazza al Serchio which itself has various traditional shops, supermarket, small Tuesday morning market, bars and restaurants, banks, station for easy exploring and beautiful river for trout fishing and playing. The train station has direct trains to Lucca, Pisa and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, and it is possible to visit Florence and the seaside with one change, and the Cinque Terre with two. The house is situated around 90 minutes from Pisa, 1 hr 15 mins from Lucca, 20/25 mins from the market town of Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, 45 minutes from Barga. There are hundreds of hilltop villages to explore, the imposing fortress of Verrucole, and the National Park area is only a 15 minute drive. The countryside boasts wondrous views at every turn.
