A little piece of paradise
We spent 3 weeks at Casa di Tonino in May, and although the weather was unusually chilly and wet for much of the time, we enjoyed every minute! The house is charming and cozy with a beautiful terrace and garden and incredible views. The wood-burning stove kept us toasty on those chilly days. Massimo was a wonderful host. He truly cares about his guests and was extremely helpful. We ate at two of his recommended restaurants - Le Meraviglia for dinner and Pane and Marmelatta for breakfast - and returned to both as the food was delicious and the staff very friendly. Lucca is a lovely town and was a great base for day trips to the Garfagnana, Cinque Terre, Porto Venere, Pisa, Florence, Volterra and San Gimignano. After a day out, we always enjoyed returning home to our little stone house in the hills, full of character but with every modern convenience. Thank you Massimo for sharing this little piece of paradise and for your warm hospitality!
Wonderful Tuscan farmhouse
This was our 3rd stay in Massimo's properties ( both previous time in Casa Ministro). We had a lovely week. Casa Tonino is typical old Tuscan farmhouse. It has been sensitively renovated, tastefully, thoughtfully decorated and outfitted with modern conveniences while retaining original features and authentic character. The house set on a mountainside with spectacular views.
The host Massimo is very helpful, careful and charming person. Thank Massimo for the welcome pack and the gift to the youngest member of our family.
If was it possible, we would give more than 5 stars.
Una vacanza meravigliosa
Il contesto è meraviglioso: quiete perfetta, continuo armonioso contatto con lo splendido paesaggio circostante, grande spazio verde esclusivo, agevole accessibilità alla città di Lucca e a tutti i servizi. L' alloggio è squisitamente ristrutturato ed estremamente ben curato in ogni aspetto, ricco di dettagli sapientemente ricercati e perfettamente armonizzati fra loro e rispetto all' ambiente esterno, ed insieme dotato di tutti i comfort e le tecnologie che si possono desiderare. Un luogo di autentica bellezza, solo parzialmente descrivibile a parole. Un vero piacere abitarvi!
I proprietari sono persone squisite, competenti, gentili e disponibilissime, ci hanno circondati di attenzioni e sono stati generosissimi di suggerimenti e consigli per un soggiorno ottimale, permettendoci di orientarci agevolmente nella ricchissima offerta del territorio. Ci siamo sentiti davvero ospiti a casa loro!
Una vacanza perfetta, sia nei momenti di visita agli eventi e alle numerosissime ricchezze paesaggistiche ed artistiche di Lucca, Pisa, e dintorni, sia nei momenti di pace, serenità e meditazione presso questo bellissimo alloggio immerso nella natura.
L' ho già consigliato a tutte le persone che mi sono care, e sto organizzando di richiedere io stessa un periodo di ferie per tornarvi al più presto!
Charming Farmhouse Overlooking Lucca
We recently returned from our second stay at the farmhouse in the foothills above Lucca. We so enjoyed our first visit, on the patio overlooking the city with morning coffee and after a busy day with a glass of wine was so wonderful and relaxing we decided this was the place for us again. We stayed a month and loved each day. Massimo is very helpful and friendly. He’ll make it his personal goal to be sure your stay will be the best it can be! Thank you Massimo!!
Fantastic hospitality in a superb location overlooking Lucca
The hospitality provided by Massimo was excellent - from meeting us in Lucca to show us the way to the house, to the bottle of wine, bread and pasta as a welcome gift.
This house is lovely, and with such an amazing view from the terrace, it was a struggle to tear ourselves away to explore. The house is beautifully decorated, and very well appointed - the good water pressure in the showers was a very pleasant surprise.
The house is perfectly placed for exploring Lucca and the lovely villages around. It’s also close to the Garfagnana, which has some lovely walks.
We would recommend this house to anyone looking for somewhere away from it all, but with access to the city, the hills and the sea.
One of our best vacations ever. Highly recommend this. The views are extraordinarily beautiful.
My wife, mother in law and I stayed in Massimo’s Tuscan farmhouse overlooking the beautiful midevil city of Lucca. Although we took day trips to places like Siena, Cinqueterra, Pisa, etc we could easily have spent our 15 days in Lucca and the surrounding area to get a wonderful Tuscan experience. The nearby village of Montecarlo and its vineyards are well worth visiting. We enjoyed the local Montecarlo Rosso even more than the Chiantis. Many days we just spent on the patio enjoying the sun and the vista while enjoying the local cheese, wine and bread. Cant wait to return. Massimo is the best. We will miss his friendship and his wonderful slice of heaven Tuscan farmhouse.
Thank you so much for having chosen my house: I hope you'll be my guests again in future.
The city of Lucca boasts some wonderfully charming urban spaces: the most famous of these is surely the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro, built on the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheatre by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini, a unique architectural marvel. The main artery running through the historic centre is the narrow Via Fillungo, a medieval street lined with the city’s most prestigious shops. Some of Lucca’s other picturesque squares include Piazza San Michele, the city’s historic fulcrum, and Piazza San Martino, the centre of religious life and the site of the renowned Duomo di San Martino. Its immense historic-monumental opulence has prompted a recent proposal to include Lucca’s historic centre – which also comprises a historic playhouse, the Teatro del Giglio - in UNESCO’s world heritage list.
