holiday of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

The villa offered more than we had expected. It was very comfortable, clean and had a good atmosphere. Situated in the beautiful Tuscan mountains it was also very peaceful. We, all ages, loved it and Silvia. She could not have been more helpful and kinder even though she was very busy at the time. She made us feel welcome. The local food outlets were wonderful and Lucca just a few minutes away. I would recommend this villa to everyone looking for the perfect holiday.

Thank you so much Silvia.

Excellent family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We had a family holiday which met all our expectations and the pool was well used. We loved Lucca, especially riding bikes round the city walls

Silvia was so helpful and friendly and we learnt a lot about the vagaries of Vorno recycling!

We loved Cucina Dello Scompiglio and visited twice during the week.

Have recommended the villa to a number of friends and would love to return.

Excellent villa. Friendly & helpful owner/managers

  • 5 of 5

The villa is exactly as described. The property was very clean and well maintained. The service was excellent. They organised a chef to come and cook for my mother's birthday. They went above and beyond to help with any queries we had.

The villa itself is in great condition with all rooms, including bathrooms, having recently been renovated. All my family members of various ages liked it. My elderly mother did comment on the staircase which was a touch steeper than some stairs in the UK. Most of our party did not notice this though and it did not cause any problems.

The garden, pool and lemon trees were all in great condition and well kept. At the time of year we were there, the pool was in the shade from about 6pm onwards. The sun is obviously weak at this time so it was not an issue. The horses available next door looked stunning. I don't know where the horses sleep but there was no noise from them at any time - overnight or during the day. The garden and the pool are private and cannot be seen by passing cars.

The villa is well located for reaching Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Cinque Terre and much more.

I can confirm all the favourable descriptions in the prior reviews, save for drinking water from the river, which we did not try or ask about.

Overall I would definitely recommend this property to friends or relatives. We had a great holiday.

Thank you Silvia and Paolo for all your help. With best wishes.

Family visit to Cimavorno August 2015

  • 5 of 5

Eleven of us visited Cimavorno in August 2015.Although we had picked our luggage up by 8pm, by the time we got the hire cars and got lost twice around Pisa we arrived late at the end of a festival day in Cimavorno. In future we would book a taxi from Pisa (contact Bruno via Silvia) and hire the cars at Lucca. Taking a bus from the airport to the car hire area on arrival and departure and it is too much hassle. Arriving at Cimavorno we were very hungry and tired having been on the road from 11am to 11pm. We had to interupt Silvia's dinner with friends as it was so late when we reached the house that we had to phone her for access. My mobile doesn't pick up email so we didn't get the email from Silvia in terms of confirming arrival times. Make sure phone numbers are swapped, inc. codes, to help communications re arrival. We got a quick tour of the house and survived on water and biscuits until we could get our grocery shop the next day. We are sorry we missed the festival. The house was brilliant- luxurious enough to be comfortable but not so precious that you have to caution young ones to be careful every 5 mins. The beds were comfortable - although the pillows were very flat - so there was a lot of pinching of pillows at night! The bathrooms were clean and functional. My son and great niece took advantage of the horseriding lessons offered by Silvia. They loved it. The teenagers and younger children were never out of the pool,it was not ridiculously deep like some villa pools, and ranged from about 4.5ft to 7ftish. The gardens were a joy. The children loved seeing lemons, limes, bananas etc. growing naturally. The perspective from the gardens is gorgeous- from whatever angle you sit. We went to the local Bimbotto restaurant 3 times and they were very nice and welcoming! Lucca is only 5mins away and the grocery shopping proved much cheaper than at home in Belfast. Silvia could not have been more helpful, she let us know she was there if we needed her but was very unobtrusive. Recycling at home is simpler- but we tried our best. The freezer freezed over so much that the door wouldn't close but there is nothing we would complain about. We have been renting villas in Italy and France for some 15 years - we all agreed this was the best. If you are arriving late arrange for some basic provisions bread,milk,coffee,butter etc.Silvia works hard and we hope we looked after her beautiful house during our stay. Silvia,thank you and Good Luck with Cimavorno.

a perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

this villa was great for 5 couples . It had everything we wanted - spacious rooms, good kitchen, lounge can be kept cool with shutters, all clean and well equipped, and best of all in the wonderful weather was the lovely pool and garden, where we could choose sun or shade any time of day. Sylvia looked after us whenever we needed help and the whole place was, if anything, better than the photos. It was easy to walk to the village, where the shop sold good local produce and had everything except fruit and veg. and the restaurant was superb, and also did takeaway pizzas. Lucca was easy to drive to, once we found our way. We would definitely recommend this villa.

Excellent, well-managed villa

  • 5 of 5

The website photos looked tempting, and the reality didn't disappoint. This is a charming period villa that's solidly built, well appointed and capable of accommodating plenty of guests (our party numbered 13). The pool is large, the water not too salty, and has a great view up and down the valley. The garden has a range of fruit trees (pick your own lemons for G&T), plenty of outdoor seating and a BBQ. Any problems and owner Sylvia will soon be on hand to sort you out -- she's often to be found tending her lovely horses in the paddock opposite. Very highly recommended -- we fully intend to return.
