This Tuscan villa is perfect! The most beautiful and warm Italian family take extraordinary care of you and the property. A renovated farmhouse that accommodates 10-13 guests very comfortably. We can't wait to go back! Suggest reaching to owner once booking is confirmed for specific location details as the villa is in the country. Rental car a must. Short drive to the train station in Lucca and plenty to do in the surrounding areas. Lucca is a delightful walled city with a charm all its own. Great spot for a family reunion. Highly recommended and reserve early.
My husband booked this villa for my surprise 50th birthday trip. I can't begin to say what an amazing location this was for my family and friends of 13 people! It was extremely clean, well appointed and had every amenity that we needed for a 10 day stay. The villa is perfectly situated just outside of Lucca, and gave us easy access to many locations in Tuscany. The hosts, Carla & Juri, could not have been more gracious hosts. We were even treated to a cooking session with Mama Carla! I could not recommend this location highly enough. Thank you Carla & Juri for making this trip extra special for our family & friends!
We had a marvelous time staying at the farmhouse. It was beautiful, spotless, and comfortable. There were four families in our party and Juri was a lovely host. His mother made some the best meals we ate while in Italy during our 3 week stay. There is a lovely dining room where they will serve 4-5 course meals. Unforgettable!!! We would all love to go back....
This place was so good for our extended family holiday in 2015 we came back again this year. The villa itself is really smart, spotlessly clean and with plenty of space. In addition there is a dinky little "pool house" with another kitchen and a further double bedroom. So It can easily accommodate 5 couples and a few extra people too. Loads of fridge, freezer and cupboard space and everything kitchen-wise is provided, in duplicate, plus an outdoor barbecue. The pool is really superb, cleaned every day and perfect. But the real star of the holiday is Carla, padrona di casa, for whom nothing is too much trouble. She is kind and generous and a great cook so make sure you go for her full-blown 5-course Italian evening meal. Juri is really efficient and super-helpful too. All in all highly recommended.
From the minute we stepped out of the taxi from the airport, we just knew this was going to be an amazing holiday. Juri and his father were there to give us a warm welcome and as it was lunchtime he offered us a Tuscan lunch with wine. He gave us a tour of the villa which is beautiful, stylish and comfortable. The rest of our family arrived at different times as they had driven overland from the UK. It is not an easy place to find in spite of the directions Juri had already sent - thank goodness for mobile phones! We visited Lucca, which is a must-see, a couple of times, and also Pisa, but we just loved chilling out at the villa, round and in the pool, or on one of the terraces. The younger grandchildren spent nearly all their waking hours in the pool!
On our last evening, we arranged for Juri's lovely mum, Carla, to cook us a meal - and what a wonderful meal it was! Four delicious courses with wine, candlelight and a warm moonlit evening made it an evening we will keep in our hearts forever. My eldest granddaughter considered the lasagne to be out of this world!
I cannot recommend this rental highly enough. Juri and Carla were fantastic hosts and we all left a piece of our hearts there with them but took home with us memories which will last a lifetime.
