About Alessandra Donati

My name is Alessandra Donati and I manage the house of my friend Judith who lives in Germany. I love the contact with people and I want them to have a good memory of this beautiful home they have chosen for their holidays.

Alessandra Donati purchased this house in 2005

Why Alessandra Donati chose Lucca

This typical Tuscan house has been recently restored by the owner, my friend Judith. Located in the small village of Santo Stefano di Moriano, this villa is unique: this is in a completely hilly green area, with an incredible view. This house gives a feeling of warmth and comfort, set in a beautiful and peaceful modern context.

What makes this house unique

the windows of the rooms overlooking the landscape are like a painting in the morning when you wake up. There is a small swing in front of the door. The neighbors are great people, ready to help the tourists who rent.

Du charme toscan !

  • 3 of 5

Grande maison toscane au charme indéniable où nous avons passé à 9 personnes une semaine très agréable. Nous avons apprécié la vue superbe sur Lucca depuis la vaste terrasse, la tranquillité des lieux à quelques aboiements près, les chambres spacieuses ainsi que la gentillesse des propriétaires et voisins.

Seul bémol, l'accès à la maison qui s'effectue par une route très étroite en lacets où, sauf à certains endroits, ne peuvent se croiser 2 véhicules, ce qui peut engendrer une appréhension certaine pour les conducteurs. Par ailleurs, l'entretien des extérieurs (bancs en pierre notamment) ou la vérification du bon fonctionnement des éclairages mériteraient une meilleure attention avant l'arrivée des locataires.

Une maison de charme dans un bel environnement

  • 3 of 5

Maison typique, bien équipée et bien située pour visiter la Toscane.Une très jolie vue sur la campagne et l'ombre appréciable d'un tilleul et d'un châtaigner. Un seul regret : nous avons eu de très fortes chaleurs , nous avons dormi les fenêtres ouvertes (équipées de moustiquaires)...mais nos nuits, dans cet endroit au demeurant très calme, étaient perturbées par les aboiements des deux chiens de la maison voisine.

Owner's Response: Purtroppo quest'anno il caldo eccezionale ha dato davvero fastidio. Mi dispiace per l'abbaiare dei cani, peraltro mai rilevato da precedenti ospiti. Sono molto contenta che abbiate trovato la casa ben fornita di tutto il necessario, compresi i retini per le zanzare, vi ringrazio molto per il feedback.

A lovely place in Serchio valley

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic holiday for two weeks at this beautiful and quiet place near Lucca. We stayed there with two families. it is a very nice place from where nearly every destination in Tuscanny can be reached within 2 hours. It is also a nice spot to begin hiking tours in the apuanian alps and the serchio valley. We didn´t miss anything within the two weeks and the guidance and help of Alessandra made everything easy an comfortable. Thanks a lot.

Maison magnifique à louer pour famille et amis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine mémorable dans cette splendide maison, spacieuse, très bien équipée, située dans un endroit tranquille, avec une vue magnifique sur la Toscane et aussi assez près des villes touristiques à visiter. J'aimerais remercier personnellement Alessandra Donati qui nous a accueilli très chaleureusement et nous a bien conseillé (ex: trouver des taxis pour un mariage à Lucca). Nous avons aussi pu profiter d'un cours de cuisine toscane à la villa, grâce à Alessandra. Toutes les personnes qui étaient avec nous loueraient cette maison, sans hésiter, lors d'un prochain voyage en Toscane. On en rêve encore!

Vacances de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Notre plus beau séjour en italie.

Maison extraordinaire: confortable, spacieuse, propre, bien équipée. La route à partir de Ponte à Moriano monte en une série de lacets étroits (extrèmement étroits) mais on s'y fait. La vue et la maison compensent largement ce petiti inconvénient.

Rien à redire, on y retourne !

exact address

“Villa Castello”, Santo Stefano di Moriano (Lucca)

I don’t know if the navigator will recognize this address, in this case follow these instructions:

Write on the navigator Ponte a Moriano town centre.

When you reach the bridge over the river at Ponte a Moriano, cross the bridge and turn right (now the river must be on your right – if you’re coming already from that part of the river go straight without crossing the bridge) and after 100 meters turn left for Santo Stefano di Moriano. Then turn immediately left again driving up the hill where there is the small village of Santo Stefano di Moriano, about 1 km. Write me and I email you a map to easily find the house.

Pizzeria "Pinzo" Ponte a Moriano: good pizza, low price.

Visit "Grotta del Vento" a Fornovolasco, wonderful!

For the children, don't miss "Selva del Buffardello" in San Romano Garfagnana, they can walk over the trees! Here is the website:
