"Absolutely stunning" was the comment from our normally hard to please teenager!
House is excellent, with all you need plus a pool with best view and under cover dining area perfect for BBQ ( also included). You don't really need to leave house much but there is easy access via car to Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Cinque Terre.
For a great evening locally... walk 10 mins to the local pizza restaurant in the village then walk back with flashing fire flies lighting the way... an unbelievable experience!
Although some have said the road to house is fairly narrow, not sure why last review recommended narrow wheel base... it's not that narrow!!...we easily took an Opel Zafira ( 7seater) without any issues. In fact the road to the house through the olive trees really adds to the authentic rural Tuscan feel.
This is definitely one my favourite place in the world to be. (4 times visitor and hopefully more to come)
Our second visit to this excellent farmhouse which is reached via an interesting drive up a narrow track on the edge of the mountain. Cars with a small wheelbase only recommended such as a Fiat Panda. An ideal place for a family to stay with its own swimming pool. The friendly Tre Tigli Bar and Restaurant, which is well worth a visit, is a 10 minute walk down the mountain to the village. It might take a little longer walking back home though.
This was a family holiday with 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We all found the property to far exceed our expectations based upon the photos on Trip Adviser and the reviews from other guests.
As noted by others a smaller sized car is beneficial for the drive up from the village, we had a Fiat Panda which was perfect. We took the drive slowly and all was OK.
Driving up to the property we were dazzled by the beautiful scenery surrounding the house, the wooded hills (Mountain?) and the village down below.
As to the house itself, we found this to be restored and finished to a high standard and furnished to the same level. All rooms were clean with fresh laundry and towels. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked several times when we had stayed in the property for the day.
The pool was central to the lazy days we enjoyed, perfect for our boys to spend time swimming and/'or floating around in the sun.
The village itself has many interesting properties and we found the community to be welcoming and accepting of our limited Italian, though a fair few spoke English. We visited Jimmys Bar and also Tre Tigli for dinner a number of times too - fabulous to be able to walk into the village for dinner.
Whilst we did not have any issues with the property we spoke with the local property manager a number of times and found Catia to be so helpful with places to visit and ideas of what to do - thank you!
As for places to visit, we did thoroughly enjoy Lucca, visiting several times - a short car journey away. Pisa was busy but worth a visit as were some of the local beaches - about 40 minutes drive for the ones we chose.
All in all the whole family agreed that the this was one of our best holidays with the house, pool, location and locals being the main part of this.
Our family stayed in this villa for a week and it was really nice. Stunning surroundindgs, very lovely and weloming manager. a little piece of paradise. we will recommend this place to our friends and we would like to return there!
A beautiful farmhouse nestled in the hills with fantastic views. The location was great for visiting sights, Pissa, Florence and Lucca but had a get away from it all feeling. The house was clean and well equiped with fresh clean bedding and ample towels, tv and wifi. The loggia was a great addition for the evening for bbq's and the house provided enough seating and comfort for us all. The drive up to the house was fine you just have to take your time. Some lovely restaurants surround the area but we also ate in as the kitchen was very well equiped and the dining area had ample seating. A beautiful house in a beautiful setting will definately return in the near future.
