Customer Reviews

Overall:
Perfect.
Enjoyed Most:
It was just the right fit for our group.
Surrounding Area:
Proximity to a grocery store and gelateria was nice.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Lucca is the nearest town; not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
We needed GPS to find the property and even to get to Lucca, which was very close. Many good restaurants there, but the best meals we had were at the villa.
Directions:
Definitely need GPS.
Check In Out:
It went very smoothly. We felt personally welcomed - not as though we were checking into a hotel.

William, July

Enjoyed Most:
It was very large, and gave us an "uncrowded" atmosphere. There were 10 of us and we had plenty of room, and bathrooms to be comfortable. It was close to everything we needed and the owners were wonderful.
Enjoyed Least:
There was nothing I didn't like! I could have stayed for months!!
Surrounding Area:
Lucca is a wonderful city! Lots of resturants and shopping, and easy to get to. We did side trips to Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre and Venice. The Lucca train station can get you anywhere.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Not sure of the name of the closest town, but you could take a healthy walk to it.
Tips or Restaurants:
The owner will give you suggestions for restaurants. The Frattoria Mianoche was beautiful and very affordable. Follow directions or you could be lost! Pizza place close by that was delicious! Walking shoes are a must. Anything you forget you can get at the supermarket. When we would get lost, and couldn't find the villa, we always looked for the Carrfore sign, and it always got us back to the area we were looking for.

Overall:
The owner of the property, as well as Mandy, the housekeeper, made our stay pleasant. Mandy came into the house everyday and tidied up. The owner was very helpful calling taxis, making suggestions, and overcoming the language barriers for us.
Enjoyed Most:
We hoped for a palatial villa and we were ecstatic when we arrived. I had the master bedroom and bath and felt like royalty there.
Enjoyed Least:
There were many barking dogs in the neighborhood. It seems that security is very important to those living in this area. They would bark during the night and early morning.
Surrounding Area:
We enjoyed the area surrounding the house - the pool, a lovely space containing trees, fruit trees, flowers, etc. There was a space created outside our main door, tables and chairs covered with umbrellas, where we gathered before dinner to sip our wine.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Lucca. We rode into town. The walk was a little too far in the heat. Also, there were a lot of cars on the roads and not much space to walk safely. The taxi was not cheap.
Tips or Restaurants:
We cooked two nights. There is a Carrefour within a mile from the house. We were able to find almost everything we needed there. Restaurants were not a problem.
Check In Out:
It went well.

Jacqueline, September

Enjoyed Most:
Luisa, the property manager, was most helpful. The chef was wonderful and Mandie the housekeeper was very helpful. It was a beautiful villa and very centrally located. We had small children with us and they really enjoyed the pool and several of our people used the bikes which were great.
Enjoyed Least:
That we had to leave a little earlier - 9:30AM - on Saturday the 15th than anticipated.
Surrounding Area:
Lucca is a terrific town - most interesting and fun. We did have to use our rental car all of the time to get anywhere.
Tips or Restaurants:
We really didn't need our hair driers - all of the bathrooms provided them. The grocery store nearby - Carrefors - was terrific. Had wonderful prepared food. For this villa you do not even have to bring towels for the pool. Everything is provided. Do use the services of the chef.
Directions:
Directions were very good - we had no trouble finding the villa.

Phyllis, July

Overall:
We had a wonderful time in Italy. The villa was stupendous. It was just what one would imagine a 200 year old Italian villa should be. It was like staying in the home of a wealthy Italian merchant, like the homes, now museums, one visits for a fee while on vacation. The ceilings and walls were painted with murals. The walled yard was filled with fruit trees. While sitting there one really felt like they had transgressed back in time, not with all the modern conveniences.
Enjoyed Most:
The true villa feel.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing.
Surrounding Area:
A residential area with some farmland.
Tips or Restaurants:
The dinner prepared by the chef on the first night was a special touch. You must take a drive in the country for the scenic views of Tuscany.
