Customer Reviews

Overall:
Perfect.
Enjoyed Most:
The villa and grounds were meticulously maintained.
Enjoyed Least:
Few options on TV channels.
Surrounding Area:
The nearby hills offered great restaurants and magnificent views.
Tips or Restaurants:
There are several excellent restaurants on the mountain on the right side of the entrance gate. There is no need to bring anything unusual to the villa. The owners were very accommodating... they purchased an additional washer and dryer for our group. The owner always responded to our requests... even if she had to get out of bed to do so!
Directions:
We used a GPS and had no difficulty

I was the first to arrive and it was pouring rain. Once the staff realized that we were at the gate, they rushed to welcome us with umbrellas

Angie, May

Spacious, beautifully furnished, large bedrooms all with bath, elevator to two upper floors, fabulous swimming pool and games for the kids to play.
Enjoyed Least:
Honestly, there was nothing we did not like.

Day trips to Lucca, Pisa, and Florence as well as visiting and hiking in the Apuane Alps (the Garfagnana) which are stunningly beautiful

We really did not need to bring anything as a market was nearby.
Directions:
Did not use GPS though some of the others in our group did.
Check In Out:
Could not have been easier.

Pat, July

Overall:
All in all, a lovely experience. We would go back in a heartbeat, but we'll have to save for a couple of years to do it.
Enjoyed Most:
Location is perfect--close to Pisa, Lucca, the sea, and not too far from Florence. The House is lovely. The owner and staff could not have been more responsive and helpful. The grounds are spectacular. Were we not tourists, the gardens would be a perfect spot just to get away and ponder. Kitchens and chefs wonderful.
Enjoyed Least:
Would have appreciated a stocked kitchen and/or continental breakfast inclusive. (The price is high enough so that adding a bit for the breakfast would not discourage a potential renter.) Mosquitos. Heat (late June) with extra cost of air conditioining
