About The Experience
Situated just minutes away from the cosmopolitan town of Lucca, this luxurious Tuscany country accommodation offers both the respite of the countryside and accessibility to shopping and culture. Anyone with an appreciation for architecture will enjoy the stunning design of this vacation rental in Tuscany, and the way that the original lines of the historic farmhouse and mill have been carefully preserved and enhanced with modern amenities. While the classic Italian gardens and swimming pool may provide diversion enough on a warm day, Lucca (10 minutes) and Pisa (20 minutes) both offer a wealth of museums and restaurants, should you have the desire to explore. For longer day trips, the stunning Ligurian coastal jewels of the Cinque Terre (112 km) and chic Portofino (142 km) are within reach by car from this Tuscany vacation villa in the countryside.
Location Description

This Tuscan villa is located near Lucca in the Vorno Valley. The nearest shops are in Vorno and Badia di Cantignano, both a three-minute drive away. There is a bus stop 100 meters from the property. There is parking available on the grounds for five cars.

Siena: 135 km/84 mi
Cinque Terre: 112 km/69.5 mi
Florence: 70 km/43 mi
Pisa: 29 km/18 mi

Both structures have been beautifully restored and transformed into a luxury accommodation, featuring simple lines and traditional materials such as stone, handmade brick, rough hewn beams, and terracotta. The villa, which is part of a three-home complex, is surrounded by typical Italian gardens filled with potted lemons, olive trees, pines, camellias, wisteria, roses, lavender, and rosemary. A small brook runs through the garden. The private swimming pool has an area for children and an area for advanced swimmers. An ornamental gazebo equipped with a dining table is located next to the pool. There is also a barbecue, as well as comfortable deck chairs and lounge chairs.

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.

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.

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.
