Prior to booking we sifted through at least 120+ Tuscany properties on TripAdvisor until we found one that met every single one of our needs: Exclusive use of full villa for 5 (or more) guests, Amazing views of Tuscan countryside from all rooms, Swimming pool, great outdoor space plus fully equipped kitchen. This villa delivered on all fronts and then some. The owner and property manager are very helpful with ensuring your stay is comfortable and providing lots of useful information. GPS for car pre-programmed with points of interest/food/etc is a nice touch. Location is great, amenities short drive away, and close to town of Marlia & Lucca. Kids loved playing with the Xbox. They also have a laptop (and wi-fi) at your disposal. All rooms are very tastefully decorated. Several Dyson fans help with (additional) heating/cooling if required. Lower level has it's own self contained unit with separate entrance, full bath, kitchen, living & bedroom, and can make for great privacy if sharing the villa with another family. Mid-stay housekeeping/change of linens/towels (depending on length of stay) also included. Highly recommended.
In short words - if you can afford it, look no further! The owner and the property manager were both very helpful and provided a lot of useful information. The villa speaks for itself - well maintained, just a short drive from Lucca and Pisa airport, and equiped with a lot of stuff to keep you entertained during your stay. Plus breathtaking views over the city of Lucca. Highly recommended!
This is the 3rd year we have come back to this wonderful place. This time we brought another part of our family and they were blown away from the moment they arrived. It's a home from home and we will come back for many more years. We feel lucky to have found such a beautiful place and can say that we couldn't find anywhere better to make memories x
Travelled with family who have been going there for three years! This was our first time. All I can say is WOW!! The villa is so well equipped with everything. House is amazing with traditional decor. Gardens and pool area perfect.
You think you are in the middle of nowhere but 10 mins away is beautiful lucca, 5 mins from large supermarket. Train station also 10 mins away so you can discover the region of Tuscany. Pisa and Florence are a must.
The owners have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. The views are somewhat to be believed, every morning waking up and saying wow!!
Can't rate this villa enough, could go on but if you are looking for a Tuscan villa holiday don't hesitate to book here.
Actually didn't want to leave!!
Thank you to the owners for our stay, you've got this place perfect for people staying there with everything at hand.
Looking forward to returning very soon.

Our family stayed at this amazing property in July 2018. Entire villa was spotless. Gardens are immaculate, the views terrific of the surrounding Lucca countryside. It was our second stay in as many years. The newly converted ground floor accommodation space was fantastic, and very nicely decorated, keeping with the authentic Italian theme.
I'd highly recommend. We'll be back - i'm sure!
We had a great week at the villa which is traditionally decorated and has stunning views across the valley.
The kitchens were well-equipped (I think we counted 10 different ways we could make coffee, very pleasing for the sleep-deprived parents in our party!), the pool is lovely and of a good size with nice steps for children to play on. There are excellent supermarkets nearby. The villa is off the road a little, but was no problem to find with the owner's directions. Highly recommended.
We have just returned from this beautiful place and I am missing it already. Nestled up in the Tuscan hillside overlooking Lucca, this is the perfect Italian escape. The surrounding countryside is a rolling mix of olive groves, vineyards and cypresses and there are shops and restaurants within easy reach in the surrounding villages of Marlia and Viagianno. The house itself is spacious and beautifully decorated sympathetic to the local style and has all the amenities you could wish for, and the landscaped gardens are amazing. We spent many hours in the large pool, which was a huge hit with the kids, with enough room for the adults to laze on a lilo while they splash around. Close to the pool is a beautiful gazebo with climbing vines, the perfect place to enjoy a glass of the delicious local wine or a cool peroni. There are also lots of little nooks to sit and read or take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding pretty villages dotted around the hillside. It is also a fantastic base to visit the beautiful Pisa, breathtaking Florence and is literally just up the road from lively and bustling Lucca, which is an absolute gem. It is also a short drive from the sea. We really fell in love with Casa Collina Verde. Absolutely perfecto!
