“Relaxing and spacious property”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016
2
people found this review helpful

Having read all the previous reviews which referred to the extremely helpful owners, we were slightly disappointed to find the property changed hands shortly before our rental period. The house catered well for our family with 3 teenage children and my mother who joined us for the week. Internally the house was well equipped and comfortable, with lovely views from the small balconies. We were however disappointed with the outside space. The pool was very small and shallow so not suitable for teenagers/adults apart from for a quick dip to cool off. There were also no cushions for the sun loungers so they were not very comfortable. We would also like to point out the access road to the property is very difficult if driving anything larger than a small car, as it is very narrow with walls on both sides in parts. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding areas with day trips to Lucca and Florence, as well as shorter drives in the Bagni di Lucca area. We liked that we could walk down to the supermarket and restaurants (especially given the difficult access by car).

Thanks for getting back to us with your review! As you mention we bought this property in May last year, already then with plans to improve some of the points you’re mentioning here. As the villa was booked up for the summer, we decided to wait until after last years season.

However, for this season the outside areas will be significantly improved with a larger pool with possibility for heating in spring and autumn. The new pool will be level with the ground and surrounded by light granite tiles. We will also upgrade the outside furniture.

It sounds like you had a good week in spite of the small pool, and we agree that the view from the villa plus it’s walking distance to the village is what makes this place special. We’re looking forward to finishing the work on the property and believe it will turn out great!

Kind regards,
Johan

“Excellent villa for a relaxing family holiday”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is a very comfortable and well-equipped villa. Ideal for a large family group. We found the pool perfect for small children (3 and 6) and adults alike. Plenty of shady space to relax out of doors. The pizza oven and BBQ were great successes. Good bathrooms and two well-equipped kitchens. Very helpful bilingual owner who responded to any questions very rapidly. The villa is only about 5 minutes walk into town so no need for a car. Nice cafes, gelateria, food shops, excellent wine shop, and restaurants. Interesting literary and historical connections in the Bagni di Lucca area and some nice walks in the wooded hills. The villa is a taxi ride from the local station but we also made use of the local buses to go to Lucca. We had a great time.

“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
