“A real gem of a location for self-catering in Tuscany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2009

If you're looking for somewhere to relax in peace, quiet and glorious scenery in northern Tuscany, then this is the place to go. Located in the hills just to the north of Lucca, the property has two houses (with access to a shared swimming pool) that the owners let out to holidaymakers.

We stayed in the larger of the two, which has 3 double rooms, each with ensuite bathroom, all finished to a very good standard in keeping with the traditional architecture. The kitchen was very clean and well kitted out with cooker (gas hob), fridge, dishwasher and microwave - and there's an automatic washing machine in the utility room (useful for clients of Ryanair keeping their baggage weight down!).

The owners (she's English, he's Italian) are very friendly and seem to live a near idyllic life on this hilltop, surrounded by woodland, olives, vines and horses.

Just a short car journey away is the wonderful town of Lucca, protected and preserved behind its Rennaisance walls. It has lots a high quality leather, shoe, handbag and clothes shops - as you'd expect! - as well as the full range of gastronomic choices from simple cafes and gelaterias to real dining gems. All this in a setting dripping with history and culture.

We spent a very relaxing fortnight there and will definitely be looking to go back again.
