fantastic, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

My 2 friends and I stayed in the Gelsomino cottage for 11 days to attend a family wedding in Lucca, and to explore the area. The estate is wonderful! I loved sitting on the porch in the morning --with the beautiful view of the hillsides, the lovely jasmine, roses, lavender and lemon trees all around. The smell is incredible. I really didn't want to leave, it was a wonderful place for relaxing and just taking a walk or reading a book. Staff and hosts were very nice and accommodating. There is a wonderful restaurant named Lombardo's that is a 10-15 min walk down the hill (you can use the restaurant as directions for taxis' that will save a lot of getting lost time!!--taxi cost is about 25-30Euro from Lucca, drive takes about 20-25 min- you will need a car). Only negative thing I can think of is that WiFi was spotty. Wonderful property, would definitely recommend it to anyone and would go back tomorrow if I could!

Très beau site au calme au milieu des oliviers, piscine magnifique, maison spacieuse toute équipée

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine de vacances tres reposante. Le cadre est magnifique, situé dans les montagnes entouré d'oliviers et de vignes à 15 min de lucques. La piscine est très grande et à bonne température pour le mois de juillet. Les transats sont largement suffisant pour tous les vacanciers. Le logement est très spacieux et dépaysant avec du caractère. Tout l'équipement nécessaire était à disposition pour passer de belles vacances. Très bien situé pour découvrir les sites touristiques principaux de la Toscane.

Séjour trés agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué, fin juin, avec ma famille (2 adultes et un enfant), une des dépendances de cette villa sur les collines "lucchesi" pour un long week-end de 4 jours. L'endroit est très agréable, plaisant et silencieux. La maison se trouve à 20 minutes en voiture du centre ville de Lucca. La maison est propre et il y avait tout le nécessaire pour y vivre (moka pour le café le matin et un lave vaisselle, très pratique quand on est en vacance!), il y a un espace devant la maison où pouvoir prendre son petit-déjeuner et un barbecue à disposition de tout le monde à deux pas de la maison. Nous avons profité de la piscine et du paysage... et les hôtes ont été très sympathiques! à refaire surement!

Great cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in cottage Gelsomino. The cottage is close to Lucca, but hidden up in the hills. The cottage is spacious and has a nice veranda, which is great for evenings and watching the geckos. The cottage is independent from the main building and close to the pool area. Your own house 🙂

Because the estate is so close to Lucca, it is easy to discover Toscany; within 10 minutes you are on the main road to Pisa, Florence or Viareggio. Handy!

Late in the evening, driving back to the cottage, you can meet foxes, swines and owls.

So, great area, great location, great cottage!! Well worth visiting.
