I was lucky enough to rent the Casale Sodini a couple of times, once with my family and once with a group of girlfriends. It's located a few minutes from the center of Lucca, from all the stores, post office and banks, but still tucked-in the beautiful hills where only birds and the church bell can be heard.
All bedrooms are uniquely furnished with different pastel color walls and matching drapery and linens. Every detail has been carefully thought and planned.
The kitchen is an authentic Tuscany kitchen and and both the living room and dining room are welcoming. We had several dinner parties and we cooked up a storm, true and authentic Italian food with Tuscan Wine.
The pool area is a dream-come-true and so private.
Both the owner and the staff are just gems, the nicest people.
I highly recommend it both for families and for a group of friends.
