“WOW! You have to stay here.”

The host, Luciano, was professional and helpful. He was friendly and careful in explaining the many many features of the home. And it IS a home that has been in his family for 3 generations. All of the furniture and dishes are authentic and plentiful. Everything you need is there — a fully equipped kitchen with coffee maker and kettle, clothes washer and a stand on which to hang clothes to dry, buckets and a hose (we washed our road weary car), good quality linens and towels. Luciano's attention to detail is much appreciated. We were delighted with this lovely place and strongly recommend that you stay for a week at least. Use it as a base from which to visit Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the surrounding country. Spend some time drinking wine in the garden. Walk to the local restaurant for dinner. The website pictures are completely accurate. Just be careful driving up the main driveway — the hedge is very close and you could scratch your car!

Liked best: garden spaces, proximity to Lucca, Pisa, Florence, the host is marvellous
Liked least: hard beds and flat pillows (but this is true for all of Italy in my experience)

“Fabulous place for kids & dogs”
Reviewed December 3, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We brought our two young boys and two little dogs and this house was perfect. The huge yard is entirely gated so all could safely run around. The kitchen is fully stocked and Luciano bought us a bottle of wine and treats for the kids and dogs. There were travel guides for all over Tuscany.
The house is beautiful with a well manicured lawn. Parts were shaded with trees so we could eat outside. There is a beautiful view of of a church on the hillside and one of the many ancient towers on the area.
I highly recommend Villa Orsolini to anyone visiting Tuscany.

“great holiday in traditional Tuscan villa with garden”
Reviewed September 23, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

This was a fantastic holiday in the nearbys of Lucca, only 30 minutes' distance from the seaside and 1 hour from Florence. We loved the beautiful villa and enjoyed the fantastic garden!

The villa is spacious enough for 2 families, very clean, equipped with everything needed in a house and tasteful decorated in traditional Tuscan style. We ate every day in the garden and enjoyed the marvellous vegetation as well as the surroundings.

Our hosts Luciano and his wife were very friendly, very careful and they also had a heart for our baby, taking care of everything he may need during the 2 weeks' stay.

We will definitely spend much more holidays there. Thank you, Luciano, for organizing our stay in such a comfortable and hospitable manner! We could enjoy one of our best stays in Italy and haven't missed anything!

“Ancient Tuscan villa, very quiet and clean, near Lucca centre”
Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a very pleasant week with our children and visited Lucca as well as many interesting places around. The villa dates from the 19th century and is located in former rural area. Still plenty of green around. Everything renovated not too long ago, very nice ancient furniture, nice looking and functional bathroom. Thick walls and shutters kept the inside temperature at a very agreable level.
The kitchen is well equipped, tv with satellite, i.e. program in many different languages, wifi working just fine. The centre of Lucca is 5 min. by car, access to the highway even closer.
The owner is very friendly and supportive. Everything exactly as promised and booked. For a couple or a family with one or two children I can warmly recommend this location.
