“Perfect place to rent for a Holiday in Tuscany.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

We rented the Villa la Volpe for two weeks in July 2012.
We were three families with small children, teenagers, adults and seniors .
With a large pool and a spacious kitchen it's no problem to cover all needs. Excellent service with cleaning, medical service( owner is a medic) and in general very friendly. Excellent base for exploring Tuscany. A small minus for the lack of view and maybe the pool could have been better cleaned.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

We have rented this property 4 times and just returned from visiting with friends who were renting it this June '12. La Volpe keeps getting better as the gardens have matured and the owners have fine tuned the property. It sits in a lovely private location surrounded by vineyards and olive groves yet is 20 minutes from the walls of Lucca - (rush hour excepted). Each room is very nicely furnished; the bathrooms fully equipped with plenty of towels and robes; the typical italian kitchens have every appliance and full-sized refrigerators, unusual in rentals; the terrace has multiple tables for dining; plenty of parking with a gated entrance, and, best of all, the best hosts you could ask for, Daniel and Narciso.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet due to the location. The rooms facing the terrace are very sunny and a bit...

We visited Lucca looking for wedding venues and Villa Daniela (inc villa La Volpe) was one of the many locations.
We were greeted by Daniela herself (an extremely gracious hostess). Who provided us with a lovely unexpected lunch and an extensive tour of the properties.
We were very impressed with Daniela's high standards in cleanliness, quality and period restoration.
I think this may be the venue we choose.

Villa Volpe is not a hotel, and not even a villa. Instead, I would describe it as a country farmhouse - complete with a small olive grove and vineyard. It has 9 bedrooms and 9 baths, 2 kitchens, a common room with a computer with high speed internet access and a printer. The villa's owner, Daniella, could not be nicer. When we arrived at he villa, we found dinner prepared , and the refrigerator stocked with goodies. The spacious bedrooms were cleaned several times during our week-long stay.

The villa is in a small town about 50 miles west of Florence, and day trips to the Cinque Terra, Pisa, Chianti and other beautiful towns are easy. We also spent several days visiting Lucca, about seven miles to the west.

We discovered a small winery and olive oil producer next to the villa. Their quality wines and oil were very reasonably priced.

There were 12 adults in our party, and the villa was spacious enough to accommodate us all. We never ran out of hot water, and the kitchen had enough pots, pans, plates and utensils for us to all dine together. There is an excellent grocery store, and several good, local restaurants less than a mile away.

In all, I eagerly recommend Villa Volpe, and would love to return there.

Just back from spending a week at Villa Volpe for my birthday. There were 13 of us, and we rented the entire villa. This is a fabulous place. I had some concerns after looking at some photos of the villa on the internet before making the trip, but Villa Volpe is gorgeous. The pictures do not come close to doing it justice.  Daniela and Narciso are incredibly kind and really go all out to make sure you have a wonderful stay. We got lost on the drive up from Rome and they met us at the freeway exit for the villa and led us to the Villa. On my birthday, they brought a cake to the villa. Daniela invited all of us to her villa (just down the rode from Volpe) for Prosecco and amazing appetizers. Next door to the villa is Colle di Bordocheo, a winery and olive oil farm - both the wine and olive oil are great. Brought a large tin of the oil home with me. We made several day trips to Florence, Cinque Terre, Voltera, Sam Gimignano, Lucca, etc. The location of the villa is very conveient. The bedrooms are lovely - top quality linens, comfy bed, beautiful marble bathrooms. Villa Volpe has two kitchens. We mostly used the larger one - we spent lots of time sitting around the large dining room table eating and drinking wine.  It was a fantastic place to stay and I can't wait to go back.

I was really between a 3 and a 4 on this property. It was fine, but nothing great. After reading the reviews, my expectations were pretty high. They were only partially met.

I've been to Europe, especially Italy many times, but I got to say that this was one of the best villa's I've ever stayed in. The location was peaceful, proximity to wineries was excellent. The owner very friendly. The villa was beautiful with a great pool. Very relaxing and close to Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the Beautiful surrounding wineries. We rented both villas at the property, great time.
