Our family of four (2 daughters 9 and 11) travelled to Italy from Australia on our first overseas trip. La Lucertola exceeded our expectations with it's beautiful surroundings and relaxing atmosphere. We were so lucky our girls befriended the kids staying in the other farmhouse-they had a ball together (as did the parents)! The farmhouse itself was spacious and family friendly. Evenings spent enjoying food prepared in the well equipped kitchen or on the wood BBQ - while taking in the amazing view. Luisa and family were so helpful with everything.
The girls had the first swim of the spring once the pool was filled with the mountain water.
We hired a car and visited Pisa, Lucca , Florence, Vinci and more.
Don't forget to sample La Lucertola olive oil. Yum

“A stunning location”

The owners Colin and Luisa were very helpful and friendly.
The property is tastefully decorated with plenty of room (Family of 5)
The house has a pizza oven which gave us much fun,and tables and chairs outside on a lovely terrace with views of Pisa ( you can see the tower) and of the shimmering sea in the distance. The pool is above ground and provided much entertainment for the kids and escape from the heat (August is hot!) It was ideally located between Pisa and Lucca, and about a 25 minute drive to the sea.
Best bits:- Location, View, Owners, Pizza Oven, Rooms (especially master bedroom!)
Least :- takes a while to adjust to heat at night! (fans are provided) Mossies ( again mosquito coils provided) track up to house can be daunting at first (soon get used to it!)
Overall we had a wonderful holiday there and would definitely come back.

“Fantastic views”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

A rustic farmhouse with fabulous views of the plain of Pisa. We could see the leaning tower from the terrace! Convenient situation for visiting Lucca and Pisa and also an attractive part of the coastline which is a protected natural park, all of these are worth a visit. There are other seaside towns in easy reach too. Florence is also an easy drive away as are other well known Tuscan places. You can also use the local rail service to explore.

It is quite an adventure getting to La Lucertola; up a very steep gravel track through the olive groves with five hairpin bends. Two of these bends require two manoeuvres to get around! It certainly made me hold my breath on several occasions.

Colin and Luisa are able to provide you with useful local knowledge to plan your trips. We enjoyed the company of the all seeing and all knowing Reg, the large friendly ginger cat. The pool was very cooling in the heat and the views from the pool area lovely, although the pool was smaller than the photos would suggest.

“Fabulous, just fabulous”
Reviewed September 4, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The downside first: the road up to La Lucertola requires good tyres and some nerve. It's a bit hairy, with sharply angled bends all the way up and the road is a tad bumpy here and there. But it is doable and we did do it, daily, even though some us often elected to walk some or part of the way up.

However, this is a minor caveat, since once you're up there, La Lucertola s pretty well perfect. Comfortable, well-equipped house, with a terrace offering a fantastic view of Pisa (yes, you can see That Tower) and beyond to the sea and the scent of wild herbs in the air. The pool is a welcome respite from the heat and essentiak after a day spent visiting some of Italy's loveliest cities. Florence is an hour by train and Lucca is just twenty minutes drive.

Colin, Luisa and Max are excellent hosts and offer the added advantage not only of their delightful cats but also a recording studio (teenage boy heaven).

So, a blissful fortnight and one we'd very much like to repeat.
