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!

Comfortable villa in the Tuscan Hills

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Villa Pennechio. The house was very comfortable, and the garden lovely with beautiful views down to Lucca and of the surrounding hills. Our grandson enjoyed playing in the extensive olive grove garden. Well placed for exploring the area. We spent two days in Lucca, and could have spent more if we had the time. Lucca is a beautiful town, and we had great fun on our quinquecycle around the city walls. There are numerous palazzo style villas in the area, our favourite being Villa Reale di Marlia, a short drive away, where we were the only visitors on a glorious day. We enjoyed walking on the footpaths to the local country restaurant Canapino and to the hillside villages above the villa. The local supermarket, Esselunga was very well stocked.

Lovely family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two dogs and my parents enjoyed this lovely villa in mid-October. It was a great hopping off point for enjoying Lucca, the surrounding wineries, Florence and a day trip to Chianti’s vineyards. The house and property are just as beautiful as the pictures, and the kitchen was well equipped for family dinners. We are looking forward to returning soon!

Fantastic time at rustic Tuscan villa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the most amazing stay at this beautiful villa. It is has a lovely rustic charm and has all the mod-cons you need for a comfortable stay. The villa itself was perfectly clean and well presented. The garden, outdoor dining area & pool were also immaculate and looked exactly as the photo suggest! Perfect for whiling away time amongst stunning Tuscan scenery. The location is also excellent for day trips to Lucca & Pisa, and we also managed further day trips to Florence, Sienna and North to Manarola. Perfect in every way! Stefania the host was most helpful, taking us to get pizza for dinner on our first night despite it being late & raining heavily. She also gave us good directions to local amenities and places of interest. I hope we can go back someday (soon!)

Everything you could wish for in a villa.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described, very clean and immaculately maintained. It is in an enclosed garden which makes it ideal for a family holiday. There is ample parking and a locking gate. The pictures do not convey the full extent of the garden which continues away from the house into a small olive grove. The pool has an automated cleaning device so is pristine and the covered garden terrace is so luxurious. Hung with drapes so the sunlight can be controlled, it is furnished with a dining table and chairs, recliners and four deck chairs. The house has been restored and refurbished very tastefully, retaining most original features but also adding all mod cons. The furniture is almost all antique, and dressed with ornate dried flower arrangements. Everything worked which does not always happen in a holiday home! Stefania was delightful to meet and was very helpful. We drove to visit nearby Lucca and som coastal resorts. The house was so comfortable and easy we ate at home. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to a friend.

Lovely villa in beautiful Tuscan countryside!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is all exactly as described. It is comfortable with a rustic decor. We were a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 older teenage children) and so the 3 bedrooms gave us all our own space. The mattresses were comfortable and we all slept well (we had the air con on through the night, otherwise it may have been too hot to permit good sleep). The week we spent at the villa was preceded by a week of train travel and sightseeing in France, Switzerland and Italy, so by the time we reached the villa we were ready to just relax and spend time in the villa and garden. So it was vital that the villa, garden and pool were all as lovely as the pictures on the HomeAway profile indicated. We are happy to report that the pictures are accurate. The pool was big and clean. The garden is really as large as the pictures indicate and gives the impression of being even bigger, as it is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. The view from the pool is of unspoilt countryside as far as the eye can see. There are serveral pool loungers and deck chairs available for use. We stocked up at a nearly supermarket (10 mins drive), as suggested by the owner Stefania, and then had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the villa on most days. One tip is that Esselunga, the local supermarket, sold prosecco for around 2.6 euros, so lunchtimes were very bubbly everyday! We did venture out for a day in Florence/San Gimignano (both around 1 hour 20 mins drive from the villa, although we drive to Florence, spent the day there, then drove directly to San Gimignano for an early evening stroll and dinner, before driving back to the villa). We also visited Pisa and Lucca one evening. All of those places are lovely and well worth visiting, but our priority was rest and relaxation, and the villa was perfect for that. Stefania was incredibly helpful and gave us loads of advice not only about the villa but also the surrounding area. We would suggest that it would be recommended to have the use of a car when staying at this property. The only change we would like to see is that a ceiling fan in the lounge/kitchen would make late evenings in the villa more comfortable. Other than that, it was a perfect stay!

Well placed for exploring northern Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a small villa in Tuscany, suitable for ourselves and for our four very well behaved saluki hounds!

The large garden, set in an olive grove, is completely fenced and safe for children and for dogs.

Close to the lovely city of Lucca, the house is well equipped for a small family.

This holiday Villa is situated to the north of hills of Lucca in a small village called S.Colombano.

This area has a wealth of beautiful ancient villas as Villa Manzi, Villa Torrigiani, Villa Reale and Villa Grabau etc, which were once the home of the nobility of Lucca. All villas are open to the public. (Check opening times)

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'.
