  • 5 of 5

"Située sur un site magnifique, en haut d''une colline, cet grande maison pittoresque nous a ravi.

Un intèrieur spacieux,un équipement quasi-complet (une connection internet/wifi serait le bienvenu), un jardin charmant et une grande piscine parfaitement entretenue permettent un séjour des plus agréables avec des enfants en bas-âge.

L''environnement immédiat est des plus jolis, et les possibilités de ballades infinies. Pour les amoureux du calme et de la nature (le village le plus proche n''est accessible qu''en voiture). Lucca, Pise, les plages de Viareggio et le lac de Massaciuccoli sont tous accessibles en moins d''une heure.

Cerise sur le gâteau, la propriétaire est charmante et les tomates de son jardin excellentes!"

Beautiful property in wooded hills between Lucca and the beach of Viareggio

  • 5 of 5

In May 2016 we stayed at this beautiful place as a family for 8 days. The location of the property in the hills is wonderful with a nice view down to the sea. It's very quiet there, because there are only very few other buildings around, connected with a small road. The historical and nicely renovated house was clean, also the pool. The nearest beach and interesting cities like Lucca or Pisa are not far away by car (20 - 30 min.). The host was very friendly and helpful and gave us some usefuls tips for great restaurants nearby. We enjoyed the stay.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour en famille chez Claudia, au calme

L'endroit est superbe, la campagne environnante est magnifique

Très belle piscine également

L'équipement de la maison pourrait être modernisé mais on vit surtout à l'extérieur

L'idéal est de louer les deux gîtes avec des amis pour une parfaite intimité (mais chaque gite est bien indépendant l'un de l'autre)

Je recommande vivement cette location !

Owner's Response: Bonjour Gilles, pourriez vous me dire qu'est ce que je devrais amélliorer à l'intérieur de la maison pour rendre l'endroit parfait ? Il faut qu'en meme calculer que le prix de la maison en haute saison n'est pas cher du tout. Bien cordialement Claudia

"Une maison magnifique, propre et parfaitement amenagée, un environnement reposant, une vue splendide et un accueil parfait. Le tout à moins de 1h/1h30 de tous les plus beaux sites de Toscane et à 10km de la mer. Une destination parfaite pour des vacances entre amis ou en famille. Après un tel séjour on a juste envie d''y retourner..."
