Beautiful place with amazing views and a great host.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Loretta and Mario's house. They were always reachable and helped with all questions and requests. The house has everything you need and you feel right at home. The best part of course is the garden with the pool and the gorgeous views. We were a large group and had enough space to hang out throughout the day. Thanks to Mario for the great stay and we are sure we will be coming back soon.

Celebrations galore!

  • 5 of 5

We all agreed that 1 week was not enough at Casa Mennone and we would all return for longer next time. Mario was so helpful in arranging for bicycle delivery to the house and to have Rosanna cook an amazing meal our first night. His suggestions for grocery and wine tasting were also perfect. We had plenty of space to hang out, ages 12-81. Every morning, one person would go down to the local bakery and pick up pastries and we would all sit in the breakfast room, make coffee and chat about the day. Suggested groceries; Milk, Eggs, Panchetta, Ground Coffee, Sugar, Fruit, Salad Items, Crackers, Cheeses, Meats, Olives, Wine, Beer and Spritz makings. We ate leftovers from our first night (Rosanna) for 3 additional meals. 2 lunches and a dinner. We also bought Pre made dough at the bakery to make pizzas on the pizza oven. That was fun! We did day trips to Florence, Pisa and Cinque Terre. We went to Lucca several times and found it charming. We rode bikes on the rampart (rent at Tourist Center at Train Station by the hour) Be careful driving and parking in Lucca. Locals only in many parts. Follow signs to parking inside each gate. We had dinner out 3 times. Most amazing was up the hill at Osteria Da Giomo. 20E each and course after course of delicious food and wine! Also loved Cafe Capanari just a couple clicks away. Another fabulous prefix for under 20E.

We were so torn, because we loved just hanging at Casa Mennone but there is so much to do and see nearby. Had appetizers and wine most nights on the patio.

Some tips; 2 wonderful bedrooms on main level, we put the senior members of our party there. 2 beautiful bathrooms there as well.

New wing has 3 bedrooms (2 with views) and 2 nice bathrooms. Old wing has so much charm with 5 bedrooms (3 with views) and 2 bathrooms and a huge family gathering room. That is the best place for the Internet too. All had large windows with screens that had a nice cross breeze at night. Beds are very comfortable.

Overall, the best of experiences!

Un soggiorno da sogno

  • 5 of 5

Casa grande, bella e spaziosa con tutti i confort. Per noi che eravamo in sedici abbiamo trovato tutto quello di cui avere bisogno per cucinare, mangiare (un bel forno a legna) e soprattutto une bella tavolata per accorglierci, sia dentro che fuori. Ancora un po troppo freddo per tuffarsi nella piscina, abiiamo sfruttato pienamente il jacuzzi.

Bellissimo panorama e miriade di visite da fare nei dintorni. Grande voglia di ritornarci.

The Villa was absolutely beautiful , very clean and everything there you could want. The people were wonderful and really made you feel at home. Nothing was to much trouble. My husband and I took the family there to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and we all said that we definitely will be going back. I would highly recommend this villa and family to anyone who wants a fabulous holiday.

We had a wonderful stay, thank you very much!

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes, grosses Anwesen. Das Haus ist mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Der Pool ist schön gross, und auch alles andere ist sehr grosszügig und schön eingerichtet. Der Kontakt mit Mario war sehr angenehm und immer unkompliziert. Die Gegend ist ebenfalls richtig hübsch, so wie man die Toscana aus Filmen und Bildern kennt. Für uns war ausserdem das Grundstück und das Haus noch schöner als auf den Bildern. Wir hoffen, dass wir wieder einmal kommen können und empfehlen die Location ohne Vorbehalt weiter.
