This is what our guests think
Nestled on a hill overlooking the walled city of Lucca and Tuscany up a winding county road, this fantastic property offers the peace of the county with easy access to tourist attractions, restarants, shopping, and nearby towns...but you may never want to leave! Inside a working olive grove and vineyard, the three properties are all comfortably furnished and include great kitchens and outdoor patios and grills. The pool is perfect. and right outside your door. Everything is exceptionally clean and well kept. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful at all times, and go beyond duty to make your stay a pleasant and relaxing one and to make you feel completely at home. There is no pretension, and you will feel comfortable letting your kids be KIDS and play, relax, swim and explore. The 40 acre property is fantastic for quiet evening walks and views of romantic vistas. A stay on this property with visits to the area will leave you thinking that Tuscany is just as beautiful, the people just as friendly, the food just as wonderful, and your vacation just as memorable as you could ever have hoped it would be. A rental car is a must for this property, as you are nestled in the hills a short ten minutes or so above Lucca.Xavier & Valérie -July 2018
We had a great time in cottage Gelsomino. The cottage is close to Lucca, but hidden up in the hills. The cottage is spacious and has a nice veranda, which is great for evenings and watching the geckos. The cottage is independent from the main building and close to the pool area. Your own house 🙂
Because the estate is so close to Lucca, it is easy to discover Toscany; within 10 minutes you are on the main road to Pisa, Florence or Viareggio. Handy! Late in the evening, driving back to the cottage, you can meet foxes, swines and owls. So, great area, great location, great cottage!! Well worth visiting.
A beautiful place with lot of space and everything was in order. A perfect place for self-catering. You need a car to drive around, but it takes just a short time to drive to the center of Lucca, and there the whole family can enjoy shopping and just look around this city, who has a lot of qualities. After a day in Lucca or another destination in Tuscany you can swim around and cool yourself in the pool with a cold beer, before preparing and evening out or making a cosy dinner all for yourself. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to have the opportunity to visit another time with friends of us.SISSEL B. -June 2017
