The city of Lucca: At times we read that the inhabitants of Lucca, The Lucchesi, built their landscape 'as if their only preoccupation were beauty'. It is a varied and generous landscape, abounding in life as well as silences, paths between the woods, meadows and picturesque medieval villages. An island of nature and of history that is situated in the centre of north-western Tuscany, it enjoys an enviable position a few minutes away from the sea and less than an hour by car from Florence. It borders on the province of Pisa, and is surrounded by the Apennine mountains and the spurs of the Apuan Alps. Hemmed in by its walls, the city reveals itself a little it at a time. Only by walking along the narrow streets of the historic centre and visiting the more than one hundred churches and almost the same number of palace can one discover the mystery and magic of a past that abounds in the history, culture and architecture of various epochs. Everything in the city of Lucca is to be seen.

The surroundings: Segromigno Monte is in a pretty village situated at the foot of the slope leading to the plateau of the Pizzorne. This is where the hill starts to climb gently offering picturesque landscape .Besides to many historic villas, like the best known is Villa Mansi,The Parish church of San Lorenzo, built in .872AD is characterized by a soaring bell tower. Inside the church You can admire splendid frescoes of Ademollo, a Romanesque column as well as the Marble Tabernacle of the Pietà by Baccio da Montelupo wich was built in 1519).

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.

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.

Perfect home, perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend Casa Mennone highly enough. The house is charming, with large rooms and bathrooms, and set up to accommodate a large group with comfort. Rooms are quiet and all have a/c. We loved the pool and play spaces for the kids; the hot tub and long, friendly tables both outdoors and inside for relaxing; the views are spectacular and we enjoyed many walks up and down the hills nearby. The kitchen is set up for anything you want to cook, and we especially enjoyed the grill and the wood pizza oven outside. There are 3 refrigerators available! It's an easy drive to beautiful Lucca, and we also found it easy to make daytrips to Pisa, Florence, even Cinqueterre for a day's tour. And as wonderful as the property is: our hosts (Loretta, Elisa and especially Mario!) were unfailingly gracious, helpful and welcoming. Any questions we had were answered immediately, from making sure we had a baby crib, to recommending restaurants and bakeries and grocery stores, to procuring a private chef to cook for us a few times. Mario & his friend Mirko even came and made pizza for us one night and we had SO much fun with them! I honestly can't think of a thing to improve about this place, other than the one very tight turn you have to make on the road to get there from Segromigno ;) but practice made perfect!

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

i would highly recommend Casa Mennone to anyone looking for a true Tuscan experience. We had a group of 14 and the house was very comfortable to us. The house is very well suited to large groups or families with different needs with several living areas and comfortable bedrooms in different areas of the house so that people with early morning activities can go to bed early and not be disturbed by others who like to stay up late. All of the bathrooms were spacious and well appointed with large showers or tubs, plenty of room for dressing, etc. Our hosts made us feel like part of their family with our cooking lesson from Loretta, Elisa helping us to set up a tour of a local winery and then also giving us a tour of her honey making operation, Mario helping us out with our grocery shopping on the first day and Guiseppe sharing his wit and humor with us as well as giving us an astronomy lesson and history lesson on their family home. A car is a must for grocery shopping and easy access to Lucca. Florence was an easy drive as were Pisa and Sienna. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub after long days touring and enjoyed the full kitchen with 2 refrigerators and a large gas stove, pizza oven and gas grill for our nights cooking at home. We had one malfunction within the house and the family was on it immediately, getting the issue fixed and following up for the rest of the week to make sure that everything was in good working order. I can't praise the whole experience enough and would give it a 10 Star rating if i could!!
