About The Experience

This lovely apartment is one of three Tuscany accommodations on this estate within walking distance of the charming town of Orentano, and only 15 km away from Lucca. The beautiful shared grounds in a wooded hiking area, a tennis court, and a picturesque swimming pool. There are many convenient day trips from this location, including Lucca, Florence, the coastal beaches, and Pisa.

Location Description

This apartment is located in the countryside, within walking distance of the small Tuscan village of Orentano, perhaps known best for its traditional shows, organized throughout the year. The most significant of these occurs in February: the children's carnival, a kind of festival/parade with floats designed to delight and inspire the imaginations of little ones. In July there is a pizza and beer festival featuring traditional Tuscan dishes, and in August comes the cake festival, celebrated with the creation and display of one elaborate, gargantuan cake! You can always find a restaurant, a pizzeria, and various small shops in town. The surrounding area also produces two famous DOC wines: Montecarlo and Chianti. The nearby medieval hamlet of Altopascio is also well worth a visit, as it has a long and interesting history dating back to the 12th century. Altopascio also offers a Thursday market, a bakery, supermarket, and an internet point. But if you have a taste for more urban delights, this Tuscany apartment also has easy access to the Autostrada, so you'll have no problem taking day trips to various Tuscan highlights, including Lucca, Pisa, and Florence.

Exterior Description

This apartment is situated in an ancient complex dating back to the 18th century located in the countryside near the village of Orentano. Up until the first half of '50s, the property was used as a farmhouse, and then the owners began a tasteful restoration with special attention to its original architectural characteristics. Surrounding the complex, the property extends outwards and includes a wooded area ideal for taking hikes, a lawn with a tennis court, and a swimming pool (12m x 6m), open from May to September, with a Jacuzzi. There is also a tennis court with rackets and balls available. The complex, which is attached to another house on one side, has been divided vertically into 3 apartments, each with a private equipped outdoor area including a barbecue, either behind or on the side of the accommodation.

Overall:
It was a great location. We were able to go on day trips to several different places. Everything that we wanted to visit was not a far drive from where the villa was located.
Enjoyed Most:
It was what I expected. And the location was perfect for our plans.
Enjoyed Least:
The showers drained slowly. We found we needed to take quick showers in order not to flood the bathroom. Several of the kitchen chairs where broken and two fans did not work.
Surrounding Area:
We found a great litte resturant in the small town of Orentano. The people were great everywhere we went.

Virginia, September

Overall:
Very comfortable and convenient property. It is one unit of 3 units in a building; there was one other group in residence but we felt that we were alone. A nice setting in wooded area of rolling hills. No "big" views, primarily forest and trees.
Enjoyed Most:
Large space and multiple restrooms, with reliable hot water. Well stocked kitchen supplies.
Enjoyed Least:
The lighting in the living space was a bit dim, and there are no particularly expansive views from the property.
Surrounding Area:
The property felt nicely remote and quiet, though close to a large town and the autostrada. A great location to explore all of Northern Toscana.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Orentano was the nearest town, about a 20 min walk to the main street. Altopasco is the big town, 5 mins by car, with multiple supermarkets and other townie amenities.
Directions:
The directions were good, but the "sign" on the main road to the dirt road turn off is very small and hard to see. Expect to blow by it and turn around. A better landmark is a 3-foot diameter convex mirror on a pole to help drivers look around a blind corner on the right side of the road going toward Orentano. Look for the mirror with an orange frame and then look for the little sign below the mirror, on the pole. GPS coordinates 43.784029N, 10.672771E
Check In Out:
Very easy check in and out; the owners are very friendly and helpful.
