“Autumn Vacation in Bagni di Lucca”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in October 2014

We were a group of couples all in our later years and decided to take a fall
vacation as part of our European tour in Bagn di Lucca. We booked Villa
Rossa because of it's location, the fact we didn't need to have a car and
the reviews. We found the villa wonderful, clean and well cared for, the
owner organised a bus to the villa from the train station and met us to
settle us in. The villa has lots of Tuscan charm the original beams and
antique cotto floors were lovely, the bathrooms are all modern as are the
kitchens. The owners have been very thoughtful of their guests supplying
plenty of extras such as books, videos, games, complimentary wine and even a
shoe cleaning box! The location is quiet, private and close to the centre of
Bagni di Lucca, the locals are very friendly and helpful in the shops and
restaurants, they made us feel really at home even though we couldn't speak
Italian. The area is very Italian with not many tourists which is just what
we wanted. Pisa and Florence were worth the visit. Thank you Antonio to you
and your family for all your help you were the perfect host, we were charmed
by the area and would recommend both the villa and the area to others.

Thank you so much for your review. We take great pride in the presentation of our villa & have a great team supporting both the property and our guests during their stay. It is always a pleasure when we get lovely reviews such as yours, from guests who have really appreciated all we have done for them and the villa itself. Guests staying with us have peace of mind as you did, should they need help during their stay there is always someone close at hand. The villa due to it's location is perfect for groups such as yours. Close to transport links for those wanting to explore the local area. Being away from the historic centre people can also relax if they want to in the garden or around the pool. Thanks again, it was just lovely meeting you all, kind regards Antonio

“Relaxing Holiday Place”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We booked this villa for a week to chill out and relax. We never really left the property only to walk to the shops for food and to replenish the wine rack. We were a large group of couples and all found it met our expectations. The villa is very tidy and nicely decorated, plenty of plates, glasses etc. in the kitchens, cant think of anything we might have needed that it didn't have. Great Villa would recommend it!

Thank you so much for your kind review. Guests often tell us they found the villa has a real home from home feel. For people such as yourselves just wanting to have a complete chill out, relaxing holiday break it is perfect. Not far as you found out to go get supplies with great supermarkets selling good priced wines, and local produce and well as several nice restaurants to choose from too. Hope your drive back home went ok and thanks for recommending us to your friends. kind regards Antonio

“Amazing Tuscan Villa Rental”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have just had a perfect family Holiday at Villa Rossa. When we
opened the door we thought wow! The villa with its beautiful cotto
floors and typical beamed ceilings was as we imagined our dream Tuscan
Holiday rental. It was spotless and the kitchens fully equpped had all
we would expect from a rental and more. The location was perfect for
exploring Pisa, Lucca and Florence and we enjoyed days out to the
Cinque Terre and Siena. We did notice a review that said they were
disappointed and we cant understand why? as we found it just
fantastic. We would highly recommend Villa Rossa the owners are there
for you if you need the and did everything and more to make sure we
had a great vacation, even helping translate when we needed it with
our hire car compnay. We have already booked again next year we loved
it that much. Big thanks to Antonio the owner for all his help we cant
wait to see you again next year.

Hello again and a big thank you for your kind review. The property as you found is perfect for family groups especially those with small children like yourselves. Close to the historic centre & with a lovely enclosed garden & pool area created with little ones safety in mind. We are happy to try help out where we can with any problems our guests might have however small. We are very conscientious when it comes to the running of our villa. Although technically we only rent out a property, we do like to give added value where we can. In your case we could appreciate your frustration, trying to sort out a problem in a country with a different culture & language. As you said "having us to rely gave you real peace of mind should further problems occur". Thank you also for your booking next year and we are so looking forward to seeing you all again. You were a joy to have as guests at our villa. kind regards Antonio

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014
2
people found this review helpful

This house was very dusty with cobwebs and spiders everywhere. The floors were so dusty that you could see the dust getting kicked up when you walked around. We travelled with 4kids for three months and this was the low point and only poor accommodation that I have given a negative review for. We opened the door to this place and our hearts sank. Very expensive for not so great accommodation. Left earlier than planned because the dust became unbearable. Main living area and kitchen a level above the garden area and tiny pool, so disconnected from the outdoor area. The three layers of stale sticky plastic covers on the dining table is outright insulting when charging this kind of money for this place.

We are shocked by your review and that you found the property lacking, especially as you gave no indication of this when we met saying "the villa was lovely!". The villa is checked prior to guests arrival and was not presented in the way you describe. With regards the table cloths, the dining table inside has a table protector on our antique table, which can be removed at anytime. In addition there are a choice of wipe clean table cloths for people with children and other fabric tablecloths for those who would prefer it. If the plastic table cloth was offensive you only needed to replace it with a fabric one! The main kitchen and living area is on the middle floor, however you didn’t mention that on the ground floor leading to the pool area which houses our standard size pool and garden, there is also in addition a bathroom, second living area and kitchen which guests use when eating outside. We are devastated that you chose to raise issues in a review once you had left, as oppose to when you were here with us thus giving us the chance put right the things we could that were a concern to you. We did explain that we are not a hotel and that daily cleaning was not included or advertised, although this could be booked if required at an extra cost. People renting self catering usually clean as they go along! on reflection it might have been better for you to book a hotel as oppose to our villa. We do however wish you all the best in the future. kind regards Antonio

“2 Families with 4 kids under 5!”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We highly recommend this villa for anyone staying with young children. We were very impressed with this house! Two kitchens made it very easy for 2 families and the large lounge and dinner area were great for those early morning get togethers.

The pool, although very cold, was a fantastic distraction for the kids, who wanted nothing more than to swim all day.

The location is AMAZING! I highly recommend anyone looking for a place to stay in Italy, to stay in this area of Bagni De Luca. (however I would also recommend renting a car as there is so much to see and do further afield.)

We went off-season, and this meant the temperatures were perfect for the young children. Be aware however, that Italians have very different dinner times than we do, so be prepared ahead of time for your children's meals!

There is a grocery store very close walking distance that sells everything you need, including baby products, juice boxes and little nibbles for your little mouths. No need to overpack nappies! Be sure to stock up on mosquito repellent!

The owners are SO FRIENDLY!!! Both from England, they have an excellent knowledge of the area and can help with your translations ( and phone calls for taxi)

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Rossa and recommend this villa to families. It is very large and can accomodate 12-14 if necessary! Perfecto!

Thanks for your review, the villa has been designed for families to enjoy with children of all ages. With safety in mind it has the pool area gated as well as the garden. The local amenities are always handy and as you said have everything you need. As the restaurants in Italy tend to start serving at 7pm or after it can be a challenge for families with little ones, however as we pointed out when we met, we do have 2 restaurants that serve from 6pm which for groups with small children is a real plus. Thanks again for the review. kind regards Antonio
