Perfect for a family holiday
Stayed with son, daughter-in-law and two small grand children. It was perfect for everyone as the bedrooms were large as was the huge farmhouse kitchen with gas stove. Lovely large, clean swimming pool on the property. Very quiet setting and most picturesque. A small forest nearby provided exercise apparatus at certain intervals, together with a casual pathway to either run on or walk. Lovely walks in the area. You require your own transport to stay here as not much in the local town of Marlia, but Lucca is a 15 - 20 minute drive away where there is a railway station and much more. Florence was an hour and a half drive away with Pisa son the way too. On site wifi available. The washing machine unfortunately did not work that well. As only one small TV in the lounge, would highly recommend taking along own entertainment for the evenings. Plenty of space to run around this estate. Would highly recommend taking in provisions when you arrive as no shops nearby to pop in to. The nearest supermarket is at least 10 -12 minutes drive away.

Tranquil setting- rural Italy as I imagined it
Easy to find using coordinates on sat-nav. Lovely, spacious house, well-equipped for self-catering. Laid back and friendly family-feel. Well-maintained, clean with a lovely swimming pool. Safe for young children. Quiet but not made to feel out of place with children (x4!) Lucca only 15 minutes away by car, Pisa half an hour. Met a family from GB who had come to the same place for 21 years in a row- true recommendation. Would have no hesitation in staying there again when I return to Tuscany. Gorgeous views. Thank you Barbara.

Beautiful friendly place to stay
This is a beautiful place in the countryside of Tuscany. It is located outside a small village but only an hour away from Florence and Pisa. After a hot busy day in Florence is absolutely wonderful to come back to the cool charming countryside. The owners are very friendly and around if you need anything. They speak Italian, French, and English. The house is very charming and clean with modern bathrooms. My family has stayed in several houses on this property and they are all lovely. Many people return year after year because they enjoy it so much. It is a wonderful place to vacation and just take it easy. My family has vacationed there for over 10 years and my children now 19 and 22 still want to come every year. There are wonderful local places near to buy fresh bread every day, have coffee, in the local bar and eat in many rustic places. If you are trying to have the “Italian experience” this is your place. This is a place for all types of people both young and old.
