What makes this chateau / country house unique

The house is an oasis of peace and tranquility. Fibbiano is a pedestrian village and it's great to walk its streets without the presence of the cars. Kids can venture through the streets where they will find chickens, rabbits and even the cows! The small garden has wonderful views and you will spend unforgettable moments. There's a hammock where you can relax, a beautiful wood pool to cool off, and deck chairs to enjoy the view and relax. The beaches of Versilia are only 40 minutes away and the beautiful city of Lucca is 30 minutes away. A 1 km from the house is a very good local restaurant, where inside there is also a small convenience store.

In Fibbiano there are no shops.

The house is located on top of a hill. to reach it

you have to make 6 km trada with curves ... But this small sacrifice will be rewarded by the magnificent view over the plain of Lucca !

Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful old house, furnished with artits taste.

Peace and quiet, far away from civilization (a 10 minute drive winding narrow road). Wonderful views , beautiful garden, and fresh cool air. A huge relief after a hot exploring the Tuscan towns.

Most importantly - comfortable beds ! House well equipped.

The nearest big shop 10-minute drive from the house - a large selection of good food. We found there pear "mostarda", and it's a lot cheaper than in Lucca.

In the vicinity of very nice restaurants with delicious local food.

Only one thing was not ok - bad closing the door to the bedroom;)

Our door shut with a fieldstone stone;)))

Other things very well ! I recommend the house and vacation in Fibbiano.

Splendide mais ...

  • 3 of 5

Une vue splendide, un village calme, une maison avec beaucoup de charme et de caractère et un potentiel énorme.

Mais quelques points qui ont un peu assombri notre séjour: une distance très sous-estimée pour rejoindre des lieux où se ravitailler (comptez 20 min pour descendre la montagne, 20 min supplémentaires pour rejoindre Lucca) mais surtout un état de la maison qui reflète un peu de laisser-aller dans le nettoyage (moisissures dans le frigo, fourmis dans la cuisine, draps et tapis troués, ...) qui nous donnaient plutôt envie de fuir Fibbiano que de nous y poser pour profiter du lieu extraordinaire. Une petite remise au propre et quelques achats (literie, draps) suffiraient à rendre ce lieu de vacances parfait. Dommage, d'autant plus que les coûts de la literie et du nettoyage sont en supplément au prix de la location!

Owner's Response: Je suis désolé de lire cette revue, et il y a plusieurs points qui ne correspondent pas à la réalité: la distance de Lucca est à 25 minutes et non pas 40 minutes! les feuilles sont rigoureusement propres et changent avec soin, même à l'arrivée, il y a des fleurs fraîches sur le lit pour les invités. fourmis est possible qu'il y ait ... mais nous sommes dans le campagne!!!

Geschmackvolles Haus in abgelegenem Bergdorf

  • 4 of 5

Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes, altes, sehr sauberes Eckreihenhaus in einem sehr sehr ursprünglichem Italienischen Bergdorf, welches einen traumhaften Blick über die dichten Wälder bis nach Lucca bildet.

Im Ort gibt es wenige dafür nette Bewohner, allerdings keine Annehmlichkeiten des täglichen Bedarfs in Fußweite. Sowohl für Einkauf (Supermarkt mit PKW ca. 15min, Minigeschäft mit Brot auf Vorbestellung ca. 2km) als auch Erkundigung der Sehenswürdigkeiten der Umgebung sind unbedingt ein Auto sowie etwas Nervenstärke auf der engen bzw. kurvenreichen Bergstraße vorhanden. Das besonders sehenswerte Lucca scheint zwar auf der Straßenkarte nahe, liegt aber auch bereits knapp eine halbe Stunde entfernt. Kein Parkplatz direkt am Haus sondern ca. 200m entfernt am Hauptplatz (6 freie Parkplätze und eine Telefonzelle:-)

2 bzw 4 km entfernt befinden sich zwei sehr zu empfehlende Lokale (CERU und IL CASTELLO). Wanderungen in bzw durch den dortigen Wald sind auf Grund der dichten Vegetation bzw. mangels Wegbeschreibungen nahezu unmöglich. Die Gegend ist wie bereits erwähnt sehr untouristisch, aber für Ruhesuchende eine Empfehlung - ein Urlaub weg vom Mainstream!

Wir haben uns mit unserer 4jährigen Tochter im großen Haus sehr wohl gefühlt, dort eine schöne Woche verbracht und die nördliche Toskana (Pisa, Cinque Terre, Viareggio, Lucca) von dort aus erkundet. Für die Entdeckung der typischen Toskana sollte man aber etwas südlicher eine Unterkunft suchen, was wir danach auch taten...

Die Vermieter waren auch sehr nett und unkompliziert, empfehlenswert wäre nur eine aktuelle und übersichtliche Informationsmappe (Insidertipps?) für Ausflüge usw. in der Umgebung, wie wir das bei anderen fewo-Unterkünften bereits positiv erlebten! ;-)

lovely house in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a brilliant week in this well equipped and comfortable house. The views over the mountains are amazing. We loved our evenings just sitting and eating all fresco under the olive tree or alternatively in the other outside dining area. A truly Italian experience. You will need a car but Lucca is easy to reach. A small bar and restaurant with welll stocked shop are not far down the hill and a supermarket not far though at the bottom of the hill which takes 15 minutes by car and negotiation of the many hairpins needed (though easy ones).

Very nice house with a fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the wonderful Casa Vittoria for two weeks.

The House is located in a small village on a hill top with a fantastic view over the mountains and Lucca.

The village is quiet and authentic with local habitants and just a few tourists. There are about 1 kilometer to the nearest restaurant and the supermarket is just down the hill.

We had a fantastic vacation and loved every minute. We visited Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Viareggio and a lot of small tuscan cities.

The first day there were problems with the small pool, but it was quickly fixed. Our three boys loved the pool and had a "swim" every day.

We hereby give our best recommendations and hope to come back one day!

Parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Le seul inconvénient qu'on pourrait trouver à cette location, c'est le fait qu'il n'y ait aucun commerce, pas même un dépôt de pain, dans le village lui-même. MAIS cela fait partie du charme de l'endroit.

Fibbiano est un village magnifique, entièrement piéton, où les enfants prennent grand plaisir à courir dans les ruelles, chercher des passages secrets, explorer les moindres recoins... La maison a énormément de charme tout en étant très fonctionnelle, et la répartition sur les trois étages est parfaite pour l'indépendance des uns et des autres.

Autre atout : bien qu'il soit "perdu" dans la campagne, on rejoint très vite, depuis ce village, la merveilleuse ville de Lucca, mais aussi Pise, Pietra Santa, la mer...

Vittoria la propriétaire, est charmante (ainsi que sa maman !).

Bref, c'est un crève-cœur que de devoir quitter cet endroit !

in the area there are many cultural activities especially during the 'summer: concerts of the Summer Festival of Lucca, the Puccini Opera Festival in Torre del Lago. Located just 1 km from the house is a great pizza restaurant, which also has a small grocery store, and there is also another great restaurant 2 km, where in summer you can eat outside with a view of the sea. The Versilia coast is 40 minutes away, Forte dei Marmi in half an hour. The Cinque Terre is an hour away. Our village borders the Apuan Alps Park, a beautiful place to go hiking every level
