We stayed here for two weeks and fell in love with the property. At first we felt we may have picked a property too far from things. But after two days we loved the location and realised having the view and the peacefulness was more than worth the 25 mins to the Autostrada which can take you to wonderful destinations like the Cinque Terra, Lerici, Lucca, Marina Pietra Santa as well as lots we didn’t see (I recommend all of these places to visit) . Fabio is wonderful, he was so discreet at looking after us, he would come and clean the pool, add water to it and bring us home grown vegetables and homemade olive oil, if you’d have wanted anything you would only have to ask. There is a little supermarket, petrol station and pharmacy 6 mins drive away, there is also a bar a one minute walk away which some of us visited for coffee, ice creams and croissants each morning. You are surrounded by little medieval villages which constantly had their own festivals in which we went to and were so sweet with music and good food.
We only have good things to say about this property, there was so much space and even staying in the peak of summer the house remained cool at all times so do not worry about the lack of air con.
The house is just as lovely as it looks, we would definitely recommend staying here.
I stayed here for a week in June this year with 7 friends, and we had a fantastic time! The villa is everything we hoped for and more, it had everything we needed - the swimming pool is nicely located behind the villa so as to offer privacy, the views in the surrounding area are spectacular (the view from the balcony is especially lovely!), and inside the villa is kept to a very high standard as well.
Specifically for our group the villa offered excellent kitchen facilities, and a lovely outdoor eating space with traditional and gas BBQs to choose from. Although there is not much in the way of shops or cafes nearby, there is a bar in the village and a shop in Casola (a nearby village) which is easy to access. There is also a lovely river between Casola and Vigneta to which we walked and spent a day out - perfect for a refreshing dip and a bit of gorge walking.
The owner of the villa, Fabio, and his wife were both fantastically accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. The countryside location of the villa offers the perfect place for relaxation, and opportunities to explore the around Tuscany also. We spent time in Pisa after staying in the villa as it was an easy train ride away, and it was great!
We loved staying in Villa Martini, we would recommend this to friends and family (we already have!) and will definitely return in the future.
The house is very comfortable and even more spacious than the pictures on the site show. Our children (8, 10 and 12 years old) enjoyed it very much especially the swimming pool. The surroundings are beautiful and the small town of Vigneta really makes you slow down. We had an unforgettable stay.
