About The Experience

This beautiful 16th century villa has been providing memorable experiences in Tuscany for hundreds of years, and you and your guests will enjoy its timeless features like wood beam ceilings and terracotta tile floors, as well as its modern amenities like its private swimming pool. Just as importantly, this villa is well-positioned for experiencing the best of Tuscany, with a small village within walking distance and access to Lucca, one of the region’s most charming cities. Every bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, so this is a great choice for families or a group of friends. On the same large estate are Casa Matilda, and Casa Francesco, which can also be rented at the same time for larger groups.

Location Description

The villa is located 1 km from the village of Segromigno in Monte where there is a market, pizzeria, shop, and post office. Just 12 kilometers away is Lucca, which is a must-see city full of medieval charm and impressive sights. The Duomo di San Martino and the Church of San Michele in Foro are both gorgeous examples of period architecture, while the Casa di Puccini, where the composer was born, has been transformed into a small museum in his honor. You can also climb the 130-foot Torre Guinigi, but on the other hand viewing the tree-topped tower from below might be just as enjoyable… and a lot less work! Plus there are plenty of shops and restaurants for your enjoyment. Day trip destinations include Pisa and Florence.

Nearby Attractions: Lucca (The Duomo di San Martino, Church of San Michele in Foro, Casa di Puccini), Pisa, Segromigno in Monte (restaurants, shops, cafes), Florence, Viareggio (beaches)

Overall:
We all enjoyed the villa experience. With so many of us, it was great to have the larger villa, especially since the weather was not so good. It rained most of the week, off and on. The kitchen was our favorite meeting place, as was the library.
Enjoyed Most:
It was very spacious. We loved the outdoor table even though we only got to use it twice due to the weather. Loved the kitchen and picking persimmons.
Enjoyed Least:
The washing machine was a challenge. It took a long time to wash and then 3 days to dry things due to the weather. Some of the beds were quite firm.
Surrounding Area:
There were some very nice restaurants, and the huge market was great. We visited Lucca, where there were family members whose great restaurants we visited.
Tips or Restaurants:
LaCecca in Luca was a top-notch restaurant. Be prepared for rain, we were, but not every day!
Directions:
We did not have GPS. After 2 days it was very easy to find. It is also very tricky to drive a van, so try to get by with a smaller vehicle. We think the directions were fine, once you were familiar with the area. We arrived at night during a terrific storm so missed one turn off.
Check In Out:
We believe check in and check out went very smoothly.

The parking area and walkway to the villa was not lighted well at night.
Surrounding Area:
Beautiful views.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest town was not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
The kitchen is not stocked with basics. Bring your own salt, pepper, sugar, oil and spices.
Directions:
It's difficult to read the signs at night. Find the villa during the daylight hours!

Check in went smoothly.
