We Loved Villa Amoroni and will be back!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at Villa Amoroni - we had booked online so you never really know what you are getting. The accommodation and hosts Paola & Daniele were amazing. It was certainly fantastic value for money and a great location - the perfect base for exploring the region (you need a car).

We really loved Lucca and spent two days exploring the walled city by bike. We took a day trip to Pisa via local roads and then onto Quercianella for a wonderful lunch and swim. We drove to the hilltop town of Barga - where we found a great park for Eve (4) & George (2). Viareggio is an amazingly touristy beach resort but well worth the trip - we were pleased to be there during the week, I don't think I would have like on the weekend. Very different to Australian beaches e.g. pay for a chair, change room etc. but fun and some good restaurants etc. We loved Cinque Terre but wished we had spent a night there - we drove to La Spezia and left the car at the station and caught the train to Monterossa. We walked from Monterossa to Vernazza (3km) and then caught the boat back. It is very do able in a day from Villa Amoroni but would have been really nice to have spent the night. We can highly recommend Antisa Osteria de Meati for dinner (about 10 min drive from Villa Amoroni). Don't go to Pinocchio Park, Collodi - it is very rundown and not worth it. The local pizza café in Verciano is good and they do good coffee and pastries for breakfast.

Paola & Daniele were wonderful hosts, extremely helpful and friendly. We look forward to keeping in touch and hopefully returning one day soon.

Great place even without a car

  • 5 of 5

The place was ideal for us - two landscape painters. The area is lovely. The apartment had everything we needed, including wifi and washing machine. Paola and Daniele are great. We had no car but it was not a problem. Bikes were provided and it is an easy ride into Lucca. There is a bus that runs several times a day and the walk into Lucca is pleasant, taking only about 40 minutes along the aqueduct. We even got to meet some of the locals. I hope to be back next year.

Delightful rural setting 5 minutes from Lucca

  • 5 of 5

The location is great, especially if you have a car. It's In a quiet rural village, but only 5 minutes' drive from the walls of Lucca. It's also a great base from which to explore the surrounding area, including Florence and the Cinque Terre. The accommodation is stylish, comfortable and the garden is delightful. Paola and Daniele are excellent hosts - welcoming, helpful but not intrusive. A little patch of paradise indeed!

Un bon séjour juste à côté de Lucca

  • 5 of 5

L'accueil y est excellent, en plus le jardin (clos) est très agréable surtout quand on a un chiot qui ne demande qu'à s'amuser. La maison spacieuse et lumineuse, restaurée en respectant les éléments architecturaux traditionnels de la région.

Un séjour à ne pas manquer! Que de bons souvenirs,... à renouveler!

Sehr empfehlenswertes ruhiges Domizil auf dem Land...

  • 5 of 5

Die ehemalige umgebaute Scheune wurde liebevoll eingerichtet und ist bestens ausgestattet. Sie befindet sich auf einem abgeschlossene Grundstück mit Gäste-Carport und ist umgeben von einem gepflegten Garten. Hier findet man einerseits Ruhe und Entspannung, andererseits kann man auch verschiedenste Kräuter zum Kochen ernten. Wir kamen sogar in den Genuss von eigenen Pfirsichen und Zucchini.

Man findet hier einen ruhigen Ausgangspunkt, perfekt für diverse Ausflüge zu den toskanischen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Entlang des Aquäduktes in einer wunderschönen Landschaft erreicht man nach ca. 40 Minuten (oder mit dem Auto in 5-10 Minuten) das bezaubernde Städtchen Lucca. Ein Ort mit einem ganz besonderen Charme; geeignet zum Flanieren, Besichtigen, Verweilen, köstlich Speisen, Shoppen...ganz nach Belieben.

Von hier aus kann man auch per Bahn bequem verschiedene Ausflüge zB nach Pisa, Cinque Terre, Florenz etc starten. Außerdem haben wir mit unserem kleinen Leihwagen (ohne Nutzung der Autobahnen und Mautstraßen) tolle Touren in die südliche Toskana (San Gimignano, Vinci...) gemacht und die herrliche Umgebung genossen.

Die Gastgeber Paola und Daniele sind äußerst sympatisch und herzlich. Wenn es gewünscht ist, stehen sie immer hilfreich mit Rat und Tat und prima Tipps zur Seite. Sie sind sehr offen und aufgeschlossen und trotzdem in keinster Weise aufdringlich. Wir hatten zweimal das Vergnügen gemeinsam zum Abendessen auszugehen (einmal sogar mit Musik und Tanz) und fühlen uns freundschaftlich verbunden.

Fazit:

Wir als Ehepaar mittleren Alters haben hier 14 unvergessliche Tage erlebt und wollen nächstes Jahr wiederkommen. Es gibt noch viel zu erleben in dieser herrlichen Landschaft...

Relax nella campagna toscana vicino a Lucca

  • 5 of 5

E' la seconda volta che soggiorniamo io e mio marito in questa casa meravigliosa, nella quiete della campagna toscana a pochissimi minuti dal centro di Lucca. Tutto è perfetto: l'arredamento molto raffinato, la casa pulitissima con tutto l'occorrente, il giardino ben curato dove si può trascorrere momenti di relax sul dondolo... ma soprattutto l'accoglienza di Paola e Daniele che completano l'idea di questo tipo di vacanza, sempre disponibili alle nostre richieste di informazioni su eventi in zona, ristoranti, escursioni in Garfagnana, visite in città, ecc, ecc...

Grazie ancora della vostra discreta e costante presenza, siamo stati ancora una volta davvero bene. Arrivederci a presto! Anna M.
