About Ginette

My husband and I are healthcare workers in the North of England. We love the Italian lifestyle and use the Villa as often as our holiday entitlement allows!

Ginette purchased this house in 2008

Why Ginette chose Lucca Area

We fell in love with the property the first time that we looked out of the Loggia over the garden and saw the amazing mountain views.

What makes this house unique

Vetteglia offers a fantastic base for seeing the Garfagnana and Northern Tuscany. It offers the best of both worlds. Beautiful scenery and tranquility but with the opportunity to see the famous sites in easy driving range.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic Tuscan home this is it. The drive up the mountains was beautiful, I will warn you though the roads are extremely narrow and curvy so be careful driving but once you reach the house and see the view from the backyard it is breathtaking. Richard and Ginette were so helpful and always gave a quick response to any questions I had before we got to Italy. And once we arrived Sofia was able to help with things in the house (the heat and wifi weren't working but she had that fixed asap) we very much enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous holiday with beautiful views of the surrounding area. Went quad biking to the canyon with Lucca Quads which was fantastic! Sofia organised it & her husband was our guide. He was absolutely brilliant taking us to see the views & allowing for photos etc. Would definitely recommend. Visited Pisa, Florence & Lucca all in a week & even managed a day relaxing by the pool. Thank you for sharing your lovely villa.

pretty mountain home

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable villa above Bagni do Lucca with good sized pool. We loved being within a small Italian village, everyone very friendly.

The owners provided an excellent set of instructions before we left and Doreen and Sofia further help after we arrived. The villa was spacious and had everything we needed, a further plus was a very comfortable living room with lots of books and dvd/tv if you needed.

We had excellent weather so were outdoors and in the pool most days but had nice trips out to local mountain villages and Lucca (sightseeing and market).

Would definitely recommend the villa to others and hope to return ourselves next year.

Tranquil Italian Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful Villa. Everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. The kids enjoyed using the board games and pool toys, and the rooms were more than comfortable. We were also fortunate enough to get very warm weather in which the pool was a perfect place to spend the afternoon while cracking as many hazelnuts you could eat that had dropped from the trees. The only (minor) details that would have made our stay absolutely perfect is if the pool had been warmer ( Ice cold even with full sun at 34 c) and the drive up and back down the mountain was a bit shorter.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property situated in the hills above Bagni Di Lucca. The terrace and pool give way to fantastic views over the valley and across to the other side. Unfortunately for us, we got to use them on a limited number of occasions during our weeks' stay as the weather was very up and down but even so, the views are stunning whatever the weather. Great base also for exploring the local towns and villages, such as Lucca, Barga and Bagni Di Lucca. We even ventured as far away as Florence which is also very accessible by road and well worth the time to travel there which is under 2 hours.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. You were so unlucky with the weather - June is normally lovely. Hope you can return sometime when the sun shines all day.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, thank you for a wonderful place to rest and relax. The property is wonderful with lovely furnishings and everything you could need.

The terrace and swimming pool with that stunning view is awesome. The listing description is very accurate and the property is immaculately cleaned

and well maintained.

Would thoroughly recommend this property and the owners are extremely helpful with great customer service.

Thank you once again.
