Lovely villa with amazing views. Plenty of space for a family

  • 4 of 5

The villa is well equipped with everything you need for your holiday. Lovely pool for when the weather gets hot, and it certainly did while we were there. Lovely views from all around the villa and there's the river opposite which my husband went fishing in several times while we were there. You just need a licence from the post office. It's about a five minute walk to several lovely restaurants in Fornoli and a superb patisserie/ cafe where you can grab a coffee, wine , beer and wonderful cakes. We also found the lovely bakery at the far end of Fornoli where you can buy your bread and pastries fresh every day. Lots of beautiful towns to see and visit while there. Bagni de Luca is just up the road and is lovely. We got the train to Luca which was wonderful and a really easy way to travel. We also visited Barga which is about 20 minutes by car and the old town particularly , is stunning . We had a wonderful holiday and really enjoyed the Tuscan way of life

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and is surrounded by a beautiful terraced garden. The outside space is great for a family as you have a shaded eating area, a long terrace with sun loungers and another table and chairs (for sipping wine and admiring the amazing view), and a small table and chairs with a covered swing at the pool. We spent a lot of time at the pool or chilling out on the terrace (trying the local wines) in the glorious sunshine and beautiful surroundings. The pool gets the sun all morning so it's a great temperature all afternoon and evening. There is a gate around the pool which stops small children from getting to it. This was brilliant as all 3 of our children could not get to the the pool unless we opened the gate (which you can leave open when everyone is at the pool).

The house has everything you need for a family and plenty of space inside. The shutters on the windows are great at night, as you open the windows and close the shutters which lets the cool breeze in (and no mosquitoes). The house itself is gated, so the children were very safe and could not leave the garden. They enjoyed the swings too!

Being able to walk into the village of Fornoli was great. It's less than a 10 minutes walk. There is a great cafe, a few bars and some nice restaurants to eat in. Our favourite was Bar La Ruota. It does the most amazing pizzas. Our kids loved it and the staff was so welcoming. The pizzas are fantastic and well worth trying. There is also a good sized Supermarket (Coop) which is open every day. There is a market twice a week in the village too.

You can take the train from Fornoli (at the other side of the village) into Lucca which is about 30 mins away. You can park for free at the station and buy tickets at the machine on the platform. Lucca is a beautiful town and well worth the trip. It has a wall all of the way round, which you can hire bikes and cycle around! There is plenty to see and great shops and restaurants. We visited 3 times. It's also a 30 min drive away, and you can park in side streets outside of the walls. I don't think you are allowed to take the car in to the walled town if you are not a resident - but it's easy enough to park outside.

Barga, another walled town, is about a 20 minute drive from the house, and is well worth a visit too. For me, I loved the fact that the house was so close to places we could walk to without having to go everywhere by car. We had a great time here and will definitely be back!
