"Amazing atelier house in the real typical picturesque Toscana, even though only 15 minutes from the see.

Owner family was very helpful and they are very nice people. We had even midsummer barbeque together. Great italian hospitality! Grazie millie!"

  • 5 of 5

"The house is very idyllic with old furniture and many interesting details and it’s surrounded by lovely garden with a beautiful view. Especially the living room with the fireplace is amazing, can’t tell that from the photos.

House is also very well equipped and as we were on longer round trip, washing machine was very useful. We were very lucky with the weather (+30 C and sun shine) and were able to enjoy the jacuzzi outside. Even if it was very hot during that week, the bedrooms were not too hot to sleep when keeping the windows open. In the evenings there were some mosquitos in the garden but there are lots of anti-mosquito products provided by the house and luckily all windows had the mosquito nets (so no mosquitos in the house, if keeping doors closed).

Massaciuccoli is a small place and there is not much happening. But by own car it’s easy to reach places like Sienna, Lucca, Pisa, Cinque Terre. There is so much to see in Tuscany area that it would be ideal to stay longer than one week.

Owner and family were so nice and helpful and they made us feel very welcome.

We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely come again!

Mille grazie!!"

  • 5 of 5

3We had a wonderful week in this "little paradise". Very comfortable, more than spacious but first of all this is the place you can really feel the taste of Tuscany. Big living room with stylish fire place and breath taking views from windows. Comfortable bedroom and fully fitted kitchen makes your stay as pleasant as possible.

Mosquitoes won’t disturb you if you use the devices the family recommends and provides."

  • 5 of 5

"The accommodation was described accurately insofar as the detail provided. However, the bathroom/toilet arrangements were not fully described as those not using the main bedroom were obliged to use the 2nd toilet which turned out to be an outdoor lavatory during the night which was slightly impractical (!) and has led to out 4 rating for the accommodation as a whole. Altho it should be stressed that it was right by the main door and very clean. There was plenty of space otherwise and the kitchen was well equipped. But the main highlight had to be the living quarters as they were stunning - the picture of the lounge / diner on the site really doesnt do it justice as the room is furnished beautifully, has an extremely high ceiling and large windows with panoramic views that it is difficult to tear yourself away from. The terrace was also well equipped with seating and perfect for watching the sun set across the lake. The directions were spot on and the house is easy to find. The distances given for distance to main towns of Lucca and Pisa were spot on and the local restaurant was indeed close (5 minute walk). A previous review criticised the presence of mosquitoes and we were also bothered by them. But anti-mosquito plugs were provided in the house and we were bitten throughout Tuscany (in Massaciuccoli, Lucca, Pisa etc) so the blame cannot be attributed to this property so bring some protection and dont let that put you off! The house is well placed for exploring the region by car (and ample parking is available onsite) or by foot as Massaciuccoli and the nearby areas have an extensive network of designated walks of varying length and difficulty. The service from the owners was excellent (we were even treated to fresh produce from the garden) and the whole process easy from start to finish. We may well be back!"

Car: necessary

From Pisa airport follow the direction for Pisa Nord (Migliarino), passed the motorway exit for Florence and take the first turn right into "Via Traversagna" (this road runs parallel to the motorway) and go straight till the T intersaction at the bottom of the hill. Turn left direction Massaciuccoli, go straight in this road with curves till you'll arrive in Massaciuccoli and, at the little square, turn the first on the right direction to Lucca, after three windings going uphill you'll find a church on your left and the house is on your right, but you can not enter it directly as the turn into the house's road is very narrow, so we do suggest that you enter the church carpark and reverse your car in order to be able to drive in it, till the big grey gate. I will wait for you there!

(Text automatically translated) Restaurant "Terme" to 50 m from the house where the food is good the fish of the sea for a modest sum. On the lake you can rent a canoe, and bird watch from the trenches built by the Lipu on the lake itself.
