Why Giacomo Petrini chose Capannori

This property is near the house where i live in summer

What makes this villa unique

The property is drowning in green. There are oliveyards and vineyards all around, several kind of trees and bushes, a lot of lemon and orange trees, and a lovely leafy arch at the entrance of the Swimming Pool.

The sun shines almost everyday, and at the night it is beautiful to just look at the stars as the sky is really clean and the air is warm!

My family had a wonderful holiday in Capannori. This is the perfect location to enjoy Tuscany.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Cortinella was perfect for my family of five. We loved its traditional Truscan decor and were very impressed by the standard of cleanliness. The large pool, surrounded by a beautiful garden of lemon trees and grapevines was a bonus. But above all, Giacomo, as host, was so attentive to all our needs that we felt Villa Cortinella to be a home from home. Our memories of beautiful Tuscany will be treasured for many years.

Great stay with family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 had a lovely holiday at Giacomo's house. Each room is very big and there are some facilities for a baby, such as: baby cot, high chair and baby bath tube. Giacomo is very friendly and helpful. We can definitely recommend this place.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Giacomo is a great host, he helped us in every possible way without being intrusive.

We loved the garden overflowing with plants and trees, and the nice view over the mountains, from the huge swimming pool.

The house is big, super clean and well equipped, the only thing missing is a TV screen. We will sure come back in the future, thank you!

Nous avons adoré la maison de Giacomo.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la maison et la cours. Les chambres sont spacieuses, une salle de bain par chambre. Un superbe cours. Après une journée de marche en montagne ou de visite dans les superbes villes de Lucques et Florence, c'était fort relaxant de s'asseoir dans le jardin et se rafraîchir dans la piscine. Tous les jours des légumes frais de leur jardin étaient déposés sur la table. Un vrai bonheur. Toutefois il faudrait que la cuisine soit mieux équipée. À 8 c'était un peu la galère lorsque venait le temps de cuisiner les repas.

Giacomo nous a bien renseignés sur les activités à faire dans son coin de pays. Il nous avait donné toutes les informations pour le train de Florence, que je recommande chaudement. La gare est situé en plein centre de la ville, pas de souci de stationnement pour seulement 15€ l'aller- retour ça vaut la peine.

Sans hésitation je vous recommande cette location.

A truly great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly amazing time at Giacomo's house in Capannori and feel really lucky to have found such a great place to stay at such short notice. We love a lot of space so the house suited us perfectly, the house is spotlessly clean and comfortable and decorated in traditional Tuscan style. We all enjoyed having our own independent suite, it was like having a small hotel to ourselves! The garden is simply beautiful, we were blessed with a week of blue skies so spent lots of time relaxing in and out of the pool amongst the vines, olive and lemon trees and playing “ Boules” under the shade of the trees, it was heavenly ! There's lots of useful touring information and maps available but what we appreciated most of all was Giacomo's help with our excursions, he loves his world and has a wealth of local knowledge, thanks to him we got to see the best places in Tuscany. We explored the Capannori hilltop villages, dined at a great restaurant in the medieval city of Lucca, visited the famous Uffizi art gallery in Florence and went on a day trip to the pretty Cinque Terra villages on the coast. During our week's stay (which was not long enough) Giacomo and his family were so kind to us, bringing us small treasures from their fruit and vegetable garden, we were totally spoilt. We feel we had a taste of the true spirit of Italy here at Villa Cortina, it is quintessentially Italian. A truly great place to stay with the added bonus of making a great friend too, we do hope to see Giacomo again soon and have the opportunity of hosting his trip to the Arcachon Bay in France in the near future. Molte grazie Giacomo!
