About The Experience
Dramatically situated high on a hillside, this restored farmhouse boasts panoramic views of the countryside from its patios and pool. The walled city of Lucca is a 15 minute drive down the hill, while beaches, Pisa, and Florence are all good day trips. The farmhouse has been meticulously restored with modern accents such as a private pool and spacious kitchen, but it maintains its original stone walls and walkways, wood beamed ceilings, and tile floors. The spacious interiors are well–suited for a large family or group of friends.
Location Description

This beautifully furnished farmhouse is located in the scenic hills that divide Lucca from the Versilian coast. It is a tranquil location. The closest village of San Martino in Freddana offers shops, a post office, a doctor’s office, and dining. A short drive away, the Renaissance-era stone walls of the picturesque city of Lucca encompass the 14th century Duomo di San Martino, a Roman amphitheater, and a wealth of late gothic architecture. The Versilian coast (the “Versilian Riviera”) offer miles of popular sandy beaches and resorts.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Very rustic and pleasant.
Enjoyed Most:
Overall setting and Tuscan flavor.
Enjoyed Least:
Humidity in rooms.
Surrounding Area:
Access to many major Tuscany attractions.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Village San Martino, town of Lucca--neither within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Osteria Da Divo in Siena (great food and ambience in a cave) and Vernazza in Cinque Terre (beautiful views and an excellent restaurant at the top of the rock).
Directions:
GPS did not work at Casa Felicita' but did when getting near main road ... the specific directions provided in written form were perfect. Driving the access road will require sounding horn on 180 degree turns and past a farm house.

Alex, June

Overall:
The villa was beautiful and comfortable.
Enjoyed Most:
I really liked the patio outside the kitchen. It was nice to eat outside.
Enjoyed Least:
The bathroom downstairs kind of smelled funny.
Surrounding Area:
It was surrounded by beautiful olive trees.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We didn't walk anywhere from the villa since it was so high up on the mountain.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring a hairdryer. There was only 1 in the entire home.

Laura, June

Overall:
All of the couples in our group loved this location. The villa is elegantly rustic where the owner has clearly thought out the needs of people renting the property. It was very helpful to have a cleaning woman who spoke English and cleaned the villa three times during our stay.
Enjoyed Most:
The location overlooking the valley below and a well equipped kitchen that was a good place to gather.
Enjoyed Least:
The roads to the villa got progressively smaller until becoming a one lane gravel road at the end. GPS coordinates are absolutely essential to find this place. The owner had a man doing landscaping work several days during the week. Now some effort should be made to open up the views of the valley being blocked by vegetation.
Surrounding Area:
The setting and the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside.
Nearby Events or Locales:
San Martino in Freddana is a long walk downhill. It's really easier to drive there to pick up groceries.
Tips or Restaurants:
The owner provided the names of several local restaurants that had very good, reasonably priced dinners.
Directions:
This property requires the use of a car equipped with a GPS. The global coordinates were essential to find it.
