Customer Reviews

Overall:
The property was wonderful and the staff was exceptional...always trying to please....and they did. The stay was so good I've already recommended it to my friends.
Enjoyed Most:
The overall spaciousness of the property...with 12 adults we had plenty of room both inside and out...the pool and view were tremendous and the central location to so many day trip destinations was perfect.
Enjoyed Least:
One night the sink plumbing came apart and we had a mini-flood .......a few towels, a bucket and a little handyman work, and we were back in business. The plumber was there the next day and all was well. It is really hard to find anything not wonderful about the property, so this nit will have to do.
Surrounding Area:
The central location to many exciting day trips was perfect.......and the immediate neighborhood had great little walks, the church from 955 AD was beautiful, the restaurants nearby were fabulous.....it was all good.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We did walk to Vorno.....a lovely walk with lovely restaurants, a nice church and a few houses...not much else...but, what it offered was peace and quiet...perfect.

Norman, July

Overall:
It was very attractive. We had fun just being together.
Enjoyed Most:
The pool area and that view to the mountains from the back of the property.
Enjoyed Least:
That I was never told that it was part of a three home complex right off the main road.
Surrounding Area:
It was easy to get to Lucca and the surrounding sites of interest.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Vorno was the nearest town. It was within walking distance but you would be taking your life into your own hands. The road is very narrow and walls are located next to the road and the cars speed down the road which winds
Tips or Restaurants:
We brought walkee talkee so we could keep in contact. Restaurants: A Bimbotta - Via di Vorno, 177 - Vorno Tel. 0583971193. Owner with husband; La Cecca - Via di Casse,55 - Corselli - 0583-94284.
Directions:
We used a GPS and it did a fine job of taking us around.

Katherine, August

Enjoyed Most:
The beautiful view, beautiful landscaping, secluded, and spacious villa. Stefania, the house manager, was wonderful. We also met Samulele and family who were very gracious. In addition, the chef was excellent, as was the driver, Andre, who took us to Chianti for the day.
Enjoyed Least:
Not enough lounge chairs by the pool and needs comfortable seating outdoors. Towels were a problem given one bath towel each for the first five days before wash was done and one beach towel per person for the week.
Surrounding Area:
We loved the quaint town of Vorno as well as close proximity to Lucca and the autostrada for easy access to other areas of Tuscany.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Vorno was close by for church, local store, and the restuarant Bimbotto, but too dangerous to walk on the road.
Tips or Restaurants:
We enjoyed our dinner and the hospitality of Bimbotto's in Vorno. We also took out pizza here for lunch. We also loved Cecca's which has a wonderful atmosphere as well as delicious food. We had a great day at the spa Grotta Guisti on the beach at Via Cammoriore. Definitely take the bus instead of the train into Florence; it's air conditioned.

Karen, July

Overall:
A wonderful spot would looove to go back.
Enjoyed Most:
For a large family, the amount of privacy each family had. Plus the entertaining rooms were large and roomy. Also, loved Stefania, the manager of the property. She was most helpful.
Enjoyed Least:
The separate cottage was dark and a little musty, plus the shower got everything wet.
Surrounding Area:
Being close to Lucca and the freeway made it so handy to get to a lot of different areas. The countryside around there is very lush and hard to believe that one is so close to a big city.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Vorno was the closesst town, and difficult to walk to because of the traffic on the road.
Tips or Restaurants:
Don't forget an umbrella! Like you say in your book, a travel battery-operated book light is essential if you like to read at night. Lighting in the house is a bit dim. Restaurant - Bombono in Vorno is very good for pizza and meats.

Enjoyed Most:
Our maid who fixed breakfast every day was wonderful, as was the cook we hired for the three dinners.
Surrounding Area:
Lucca is a lovely town and there were many interesting side trips.
