“Even in February the sun shines”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We spend an amazing time here. The house is well looked after and fitted out. Stacks of logs for those chilly evenings. The house was easy to book and the owner recommended some great places to eat and booked some of the places for us - of course we were also well looked after. The house has fantastic views up and down the valley.
In summer with a swimming pool and the options for eating outside it must be even better

“Grab a glass of prosecco and watch the sunset from the balcony of this rather special Tuscan villa.”
Reviewed April 28, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

A group of us stayed over New Year and had a great time. The villa has been beautifully and carefully renovated, from the frescoes in the rather grand marble entrance hall to the rustic charm of the kitchen dining area and the library. It took us a while to get our bearings inside as it's bit of a maze - much larger than you'd think from the pictures, and everywhere you look there are views out over the hills. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all as generously proportioned and nicely decorated as you'd hope and the house is generally well kitted out for family living.

We were pleased with the location, on a mundane level there are good local shops and restaurants within easy reach. More importantly, it's surrounded by little Tuscan hillside villages which are all worth an explore and only a twenty minute drive from Lucca, a stunning walled city which will please everyone. The cobbled streets mix history, culture and glam shopping and the connection with Puccini is evidenced by the number of concerts they hold.

We were really lucky with the weather and ate breakfast on the terrace every morning of our stay, but it would be great to stay there in warmer months, lie out in the south facing garden and swim in the pool when it gets too hot. Thinking about going back already!

Liked best: Throwing the balcony doors open to the sun and looking out to the Tuscan hillside beyond.
Liked least: Everything is at least a short drive away, which wasn't a problem for us but may not suit everyone.
