About The Experience
Dramatically situated on a hillside, this restored farmhouse boasts panoramic views over vineyards, olive groves, and chestnut woods 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 within day trip distance. Constructed in the early 1900s, the property was originally a local “bottega” or general store, reflected in unique features distinguishing the building from standard farmhouses, such as higher ceilings and larger windows. The spacious interiors are well–suited for a family or group of friends.
Location Description

This farmhouse is located in the scenic hills that divide Lucca from the Versilian coast, and has offers easy access to both as well as great views. Nearby, the small 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 is home to 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

We had a fabulous time. We were hoping for a quiet, well appointed Tuscany villa overlooking a valley with olive trees and got precisely that.
Enjoyed Most:
Typically Tuscan, fit out and view
Enjoyed Least:
Delayed garbage collection. The gas cook top needs some maintenance. The clothes dryer and internet reception were poor.
Surrounding Area:
Perfect Tuscan outlook, well-located even if a little remote ( although we liked the peace and quiet).
Nearby Events or Locales:
Nearest village is San Martino in Freddana, 3 kms drive only on very narrow road. Had a great supermarket with fabulous deli and butcher - had the best Tuscan bistecca and cured meats
Tips or Restaurants:
Need a small rental car (narrow roads), off street parking good for 2 cars, but a little difficult to access, we had arranged pre-stocked groceries etc. prior to arrival which was good. Simply supermarket in San Martino in Fredanna is very good. We also had a nice meal at Il Vipore, the nearest restaurant--very friendly and Tuscan style.
Finding the villa can be a little challenging as GPS is problematic in this area and the directions provided only really only make sense if you are already familiar with area - there are a number of options to access from Lucca. The road to the villa is very narrow and windy , normal driving care needs to be taken with regular horn blasts as the locals do , although there is hardly any traffic at all most of the time. Once you know the road it is fine. We enjoyed it.
Check In Out:
We were very fortunate to have Serena great us and see us off, as well as regular attendances during our 2 week stay. Very pleasant experience.

Peter, June

It was the perfect getaway. Relaxed yet Tuscan. We felt right at home.
Enjoyed Most:
The view and the outdoor areas.
Enjoyed Least:
The sun getting cut off from the pool at around 4pm and the noise of cars beeping their horns and speeding around the corner on the road.
Surrounding Area:
Shops were close.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Not within walking distance but was close.
Tips or Restaurants:
Mosquito spray
We used a GPS with the property coordinates.

Henry, June

We had the most wonderful holiday as a family and spent a large part of it relaxing around the property. Everyone had a great time.
Enjoyed Most:
We loved the layout with a feeling of space and separation when required but also a sense of togetherness in the communal areas. The garden was wonderful.
Enjoyed Least:
The position of the pool becoming in the shade quite quickly!
Surrounding Area:
The closeness of the village. The countryside and the walking.
Nearby Events or Locales:
A good walk for the village and the closest town Lucca was a 20 minute drive.
Tips or Restaurants:
A good book and wine! There were some great restaurants in Lucca and I would recommend one evening having a chef just for the experience.
We used the GPS and coordinates which worked well.
Check In Out:
Check in and check out were good. One challenge was the key holder didn't really speak English so a few things were overlooked like the process for rubbish recycling. We muddled through with a translation book but it was a challenge!
