Fabulous property with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing - very versatile for our large group with ages from grandparents to children. So many different private sections to the house so that we all had privacy but many places to come together and have dinner and swim by the pool. An easy drive to beautiful towns like Lucca and Pietrasanta. The hosts. Sandra and Renzo continuously went above and beyond to help us (one of our children needed medical care and they not only called a doctor to the house - but translated for us too) The house was fully equipped for a large group and the air-conditioning was well needed in the hot summer sun!!!

Wonderful holiday in la Manzana farmhouse, Nocchi, Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

La Manzana is a wonderful property with a superb swimming pool. The house is very spacious and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful, large with lots of different areas where you can eat a la fresco. Renzo and Sandra are lovely owners who are so friendly and helpful. My grandchildren say Renzo makes the best pizzas. The property is in a good area for visiting many of the Tuscan sites.

Tuscan family style paradise

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything that we expected, and so much more. This was our first time in Italy, and we selected this area because we wanted to have a relaxing holiday, while still having some tourist areas nearby.

The house is charming and lovely. We travelled with 3 adult couples and 4 young adults. The layout of the house really allowed us to hang out together and also have enough space to not get on each other's nerves. The trees, flowers, plants and. Overall grounds of the house were wonderful. The pool area and grills and outdoor eating areas were super inviting and enjoyable. The hosts, Sandra and Renzo, are such wonderful people. They provided us with many suggestions for great places to visit and eat, based on what we as a group were looking for.

We relaxed and also visited a number of villages for short no stress day trips, Lucca, Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano, Lido de Camaiore and the Cinque Terre.

We fell in love with Nocchi, Camaiore, Tuscany and Italy as a whole. I cannot say enough about how accommodating the owners are and what an easy and relaxing time we had during our trip. We will definitely recommend this house to our other friends, and we will come back again.

Wonderful week at beautiful Villa La Manzana

  • 5 of 5

Villa La Manzana was even better than it looked in the photos. Lovely old house, some of it dating back to the 17th century, on a steep Tuscan hillside above the village of Nocchi, near Camaiore. This really is a lovely and unspoilt part of Tuscany, and Sandra and Renzo could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Their suggestions for days out and restaurant tips were spot on and played a big part in our enjoyment of our stay - and Renzo's pizza oven skills were quite sensational! The swimming pool was perfect, the kitchen had everything we could have needed and the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. We all loved Villa La Manzana and hope to return!

Stunning villa and Location / Traumhafte Villa

  • 5 of 5

Stunning villa and Location

We were in the summer with the family at Sandra and Renzo. It was fantastic.

The whole area is so wonderful. A panoramic view of the countryside. So much space for all, including different places to eat. In the morning you can sit for breakfast where the sun rises in the evening by the pool ...

Fresh fruits, everywhere you look. And you may even use. We made fresh lemonade, tomato mozarella and ate figs from the tree.

And Sandra and Renzo are so helpful. The greeting on the first night was exceptional. And then freshly made pizza from Renzo. Very tasty!

Here you definitely recover in two weeks as before in three.

Clear recommendation!

Traumhafte Villa and Location

Wir waren im Sommer mit der Familie bei Sandra und Renzo. Es war fantastisch.

Die ganze Anlage ist so wundervoll. Ein freier Blick ins Grüne. Unglaublich viel Platz für alle, inklusive unterschiedlicher Plätze zum Essen. Morgens sitzt man zum Frühstück da, wo die Sonne aufgeht, abends am Pool...

Frische Früchte, überall wo man hinsieht. Und man darf sich sogar bedienen. Wir machten uns frische Zitronenlimonade, tomate mozarella and aßen Feigen direkt vom Baum.

Und Sandra und Renzo sind so hilfsbereit. Die Begrüßung am ersten Abend war schon außergewöhnlich. Und dann noch frisch gemachte Pizza von Renzo. Sehr lecker!

Hier erholt man sich definitiv in zwei Wochen wie sonst in drei.

Klare Empfehlung!
