Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say we did not know what to expect on our first family trip to Italy but this house was amazing and it exceeded our expectations. The owners are truly special people and went above and beyond to make sure our family of five was comfortable. The home is spacious and beautifully decorated with spectacular Tuscan views. The attention to detail is incredible, this house will not disappoint!

Beautiful Tuscan Villa

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this villa for your stay in Tuscany. We stayed for 9 nights and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Our kids loved the pool and the grounds were perfect for them to explore outside. The villa is located with beautiful views and has everything you might need for your stay. The kitchen is modern and well equipped. We can't wait to go back and would love to stay there again. Our kids keep asking if and when can we can go back. The property was really well-maintained and the owner was kind, friendly and very helpful.

Perfect Italian villa!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this villa for your stay in Tuscany. The villa is located with stunning views and has everything you might need for your stay. The kitchen is modern and well equipped - cooking dinner for 12 persons was not a problem at all! We really enjoyed the patio where everyone can sit outside and eat for hours - since there is a roof and blankets are available you can sit outside even when its cold or it it rains. The property was really well-maintained and the owner was very friendly and helpful.

A truly stunning property.

  • 4 of 5

A real find, a hidden gem tucked away in a quiet peaceful hamlet with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Yet not too remote with Lucca, Pisa and Florence all easily accessible and well worth a visit if you can tear yourself away from the property . No attention to detail has been spared by the owners who were both friendly and welcoming and who wanted to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay memorable. The property was well maintained and fully equipped and just as described. In fact it exceeded our expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone who wants to get away from it all but with all the comforts of home and who does not mind driving. We enjoyed 9 days of sunshine, good food, tranquillity and our teenage children were happy too. A bonus.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Filicaia at 250 Metres Nearest Golf : San Romano (6 holes) at 5 Kilometres Car: necessary

Conveniently situated on the outskirts of the small mountain village of Filicaia, approx 1 hour North Of Lucca.

The villa is situated in wonderful mature gardens,and the views from the house are absolutely beautiful, with the garden boasting views over the Serchio Valley, which itself is nestled between the Apennine, and Apuane mountain ranges.

In Filicaia itself there are 2 bars, one of which serves pizza at weekends, a small food shop, a bank and a post office.

Less than a 10 minute drive away is the local historic market town of Castelnuovo, with its various bars & restaurants, supermarkets and well-known Thursday morning market.

For days when one wishes to explore further afield, the stunning walled mediaeval city of Lucca is 50 mins/1 hour away.

Only a 30 minute drive is the popular mediaeval town of Barga, with its cobbled streets, wealth of restaurants, Cathedral, beautiful architecture, regular music festivals and great views!

Grotta del Vento, the wind caves is a 40 minute drive, and is worth a day out.

Pisa, for exploring the tower and of course for the airport is a 90 minute drive, with Florence circa 2 hrs.

More locally, there are plenty of opportunities to explore local towns, hill top villages, to walk and picnic, ride horses, fish, zip wire through the trees, visit the local fortress or the National Parks, swim in the river, or simply relax.

A good choice for a country/village stay, with some facilities within walking distance!
