About Emilia Oliva
I was born in Genoa, but since I was a child, I have always spent my holidays with my family in Lucca and surrounding. I love this area because here I find a good mixture between peace, culture and sport activities. I help my mother in renting the Villa and I am always very happy to share with our guests all the information I have about the place in order to try to make their holiday special and unforgettable!
Why Emilia Oliva chose Lucca
I heredited the property from my father and in the last past three year it was completely renovated and decorated. The Location is special being in the countryside but still very close to shops and restaurants around the village and also in Lucca town.
What makes this Villa unique
The property benefits of a beautiful and peaceful view over the piano of Lucca from one side and on the opposite side it is surrounded by olive trees. Easy to access and close to main attraction of Lucca and surroundings! It is the perfect location to combine, relax to culture to sport activities.

We were 3 families that rented the Villa in June. We had a wonderful stay. The home was absolutely charming and large enough to accommodate 3 families (11 people total). It was very clean and we especially loved spending our mornings and evenings outside on the veranda (and at times could hear the soothing music from nearby Villa that had outdoor concerts) -- simply magical! We enjoyed several day trips (Lucca, Cinque Terre, Bolgheri, Barga, Florence) and had great meals cooked by Rosanna when we returned (an absolute must if you stay here). You definitely need a car when you stay here, but driving in Tuscany and its cities is very easy compared to Rome and Amalfi. The caretaker and his wife were very helpful if we had questions and the owner, Emilia, was always accessible and helpful via email and telephone. There was a problem with the dishwasher, and it was replaced the very next day!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this villa and we hope to return some day soon!!
Great week in a superb villa
We have only good things to say about our week stay at Villa Al Callare.
Emilia and family presented a beautiful villa. We had a group of 11, with 4 kids, and everyone loved their bedroom, bathrooms, and the living areas. The villa was clean, the grounds were superb with a picture perfect pool, and there was lots for the kids to stay occupied with.
We can't speak highly enough of our week. The staff were so helpful, and we left happy and hoping to return.
Wonderful, relaxed, perfect family holiday
The Photos don't do justice to this incredible house. Large, luxurious and yet welcoming and homely. Very clean, very well kept and beautifully furnished. The pool is a fantastic size and the salt water keeps it easy on the skin! We had a very warm welcome, nothing was too much for the lovely Housekeeper. Emilia was very efficient and helpful with all information and bookings, lots of extra info was provided, which was great help. She even posted back our son's toy car, which we left behind! The perfect location to explore Tuscany. 40 minuted from Pisa but literally two minutes away are some wonderful traditional Italian houses and garden stop list...if you can drag yourself away from the comfort of the villa. We will definitely be back...
