Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Pennechio is a fabulous property, centrally located near many places, such as Pisa, Lucca, Viareggio beaches (a must)! The grounds are beautiful, the neighborhood true Tuscany with its old well preserved architecture. The home is cozy, and the air conditioned rooms are quite pleasant. Stefania is a wonderful host! My husband accidentally left a large sum of $$ in one of the bedroom drawers and she and her housekeeper made sure to get in touch with us to wire it back! Thank you soooo much for that! You won't go wrong at this villa! It has everything you need!

Lovely house in great surroundings, large clean swimming pool, good outdoor eating area.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was spoilt by the weather. Only 4 days of sun in 2 weeks. Owner very easy to get on with...happy to help at all times.. definetly need a car as no supermarket or small shops to hand.

Kitchen could better equipped with more bowls and mugs. All pillows rather hard and we felt each bed should have at least 2.

We enjoyed our stay..visited the hills,lovely Lucca and by train to a very busy Florence .

Wonderful views and a lovely garden perfectly located for trips to Lucca and elsewhere

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very happy week at this charming property at the beginning of September. The owner, Stefania, gave us a warm welcome, showing us round and giving us lots of useful tips - she'd also been great about answering questions by email before we arrived. The spacious garden, large swimming pool and generous outside seating area are truly exceptional - and, for us, a perfect setting for a sunny, Tuscan holiday. Thank you, Stefania, for everything - we'll be back!

Beautiful Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this beautiful, traditional villa. Our children loved playing in the pool and large garden. We had lunches and dinners out in the pergola and enjoyed the wonderful views over to Lucca and the mountains. The highlight of our trip was the restaurant Stefania recommended about 5 minutes drive from the villa - fantastic food, great value and breathtaking views. We will definitely be back again!

Perfect Tuscan Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Owner Stefania was really lovely and responded immediately right through the booking process. After a very warm welcome at her home we were then taken to the house which was only down the road. Stefania explained everything to us and the house did not disappoint. It has all the charm you would expect of a Tuscan house and everything you need for a perfect holiday. The weather was unusually hot and humid for the first 4 days so the air con in the bedrooms and the fan in the living room were a godsend!

We found the best things about the house was the outside space and the views. The photos do not really do it justice. There is a lovely gazebo idea for meals and chilling out in the evening and a huge garden (over 100m in length) which was very private and covered in lovely olive trees. Property access via private gates and plenty of parking for cars on the drive up to the house or in the little bush covered canopy area just as you come in on the left. Ideal for keeping the car out of the sun. The views over the Tuscan countryside and hills were stunning and made us not want to go anywhere! The pool is huge and very clean and we made good use of it. It is not heated but we found the water temp was perfect.

There is a large supermarket (Esselunga) about 10 mins drive which has everything you need. There are no restaurants, bars or amenities in reasonable walking distance so you definitely need a car. With regards to costs, as advertised, deposit is made via Owners Direct on booking with the balance to be paid on arrival. Cleaning, towels etc came to EUR160 and electric (paid at the end) was EUR70 but this will depend on how much you use. There was only two of us but we did leave the air con on all night in two of the rooms. Overall, we were delighted with the property and would thoroughly recommend.

Pisa Airport:

Point to note on arrival. If you have a rental car, when you exit the airport, do not wait for the shuttle bus to the car rental site unless you have kids and lots of luggage. We queued up for about 20 mins in the hot sun only to find out that the site was less than a 5 min walk along the road! We didn't make that mistake coming back. Pisa airport is small. cramped and not a lot in there so don't wait until you fly back to buy the family presents!

A panoramic road known as the 'Strada del Vino' ('Wine Route') runs through past many local villages and farmhouse estate where visitors can buy the best local oil and wine.

Near this village there are some good restaurants, banks and a chemist in Segromigno in Monte, near 2 kilometres from my holiday Villa.

A supermarket is about 3 kilometres from my holiday Villa in Marlia where you can find all you need.

In Collodi about 10 kilometres from the villa there is 'Parking of Pinocchio'.
