All was perfect!
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!
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.
I stayed there with my family. it's a vary beautiful house and fantastic, quite and spectacular place. it's not so far to Lucca, or Pisa.
The owener is friendly and available.
I suggest this property for your relax into a historical place.
