Beautiful Tuscan villa

  • 5 of 5

Il Melgrano is beautiful, our family of nine had a fabulous time staying in this property. The house and grounds are well laid out and the pool and pool house/kitchen facilities are great for allowing you to stay poolside all day. Situated in a lovely little village, close enough to amenities but secluded at the end of a country lane. We didn't want to leave and spent our last evening around the wood fired pizza oven planning a return visit. I can't recommend this villa enough. Our wonderful hosts AnnaMaria and Stefano provide any information and assistance required and ensure that you receive a warm welcome on arrival.

We've visited Italy four times over the last five years each time discovering new and beautiful places. Being our fourth property rental this one had a lot to do to improve on any of our previous houses, but it managed to do just that. The house is less than an hour from Pisa which makes it painless to travel to. It's nestled at the top of a classically steep winding lane and is stunning from the word go. Inside, the house has a lovely layout with bedrooms spread generously across the first floor so that you never feel like you're on top of people (we were a party of 10). It was immaculately clean throughout, the beds were huge and incredibly comfortable and space was in abundance. The pool area is just down from the house amidst the olive trees and again is stunning. On top of all of this you have the lovely little village of Nocchi just a 5 minute walk away where you'll find a bar/pizzeria/small shop and just a 5 minute drive away the beautiful town of Camaoire with cafes, restaurants, street markets etc in abundance. This house has it all and we do hope to return...2 weeks would be a dream! Can highly recommend!

Absolutely Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are beautiful. Hard to believe, but both are better in person. The house is situated in the small village of Nocchi, just a mile or so from Camaiore which is a delightful Tuscan town with shops, cafes and restaurants. We did some days trips to Florence, Lucca, Carrara and Pisa and got to experience the beach towns of Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore. The house is very well decorated and has all the modern amenities one could ask for. The salt water pool area is gorgeous and is surrounded by olive and fruit trees. The property in general is lush, beautifully landscaped and absolutely stunning at night as the ground are dramatically lit at night. Annamaria and her husband were both delightful and very helpful. She provided us with great restaurant recommendations and the name of a chef that ultimately came to our house to cook for us on our last night. Annamaria even came to the house a couple of times in the morning to take our children to pick fresh eggs from the chicken coop that is on the property as well. We highly recommend Il Melagrano!

Perfect place to celebrate for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house is stunning, just as expected from the website, but even more so. Annamaria obviously takes great care of her property which is beautifully presented and very well equipped.

Annamaria was wonderful to deal with, despite us knowing no Italian. She was easy to contact before our holiday with any questions and was there to greet us on our arrival. She even sent back some dvds that we'd left behind.

Our family group covered 3 generations, we all enjoyed time in the pool and lovely family meals, at lunch time on the terrace by the pool and in the evening by the house with the fantastic wood fired pizza oven. The local pizzaria, only a short walk away was also very popular with an extremely friendly owner.

The house is well situated for the Cinque Terra, which is well worth a visit as well as various Tuscan towns all within an hour or so.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Tuscany, it is the perfect base for a relaxing home from home to come back to after a day out sight seeing.

Il Melagrano è bellissimo !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 arrived at this beautiful on a Saturday evening exhausted from the arduous drive from Rome. Annamaria greeted us warmly ,gave us the grand tour and then presented us with a homemade meal and provisions to feed the hungry children- so delicious. Suddenly all tensions faded and we slipped into the relaxing Tuscan evening.

Annamaria and her husband,Stefano have designed an elegant yet comfortable home and gardens.

We travelled from the villa to Pisa,Lucca, Florence and the beach but we all agreed that our favorite place to be was Il Melagrano . In fact, there were a few days ,we just stayed by the pool,admiring the gardens,the views,the olive trees.It was as if we were living in a work of art !

Many thanks Annamaria and Stefano for sharing such beauty.Spero che ci vediamo ancora !

Wonderful house in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering of 10 who stayed in 'Il Melograno' for one week in June 2014. We simply loved the house and the gardens. The house was spacious and full of pleasant surprises. It was equipped to a high standard, it's location secluded with beautiful views and the extensive well- maintained garden was a special treat for us to sit in the evening and enjoy the ambience. The swimming pool was great and we held swimming competitions and enjoyed sunbathing there. The village of Nocchi was an excellent starting point for visiting many beautiful Tuscan towns.

The owner Annamaria was extremely helpful and informative about the house and the surrounding area. Overall it was a wonderful holiday and everybody enjoyed it very much so thank you Annamaria!
