Guestbook comments from the manager

We had the absolutely delightful experience of being able to book the entire Farmhouse for a joint 70th birthday party for one of our friends (they booked the entire villa as well). The farmhouse is absolutely gorgeous. It is newly renovated and has enough bathrooms and bedrooms to comfortably accommodate all 8 of us. The kitchen has all the latest amenities and brings the modern comforts of the 21st century to the rural, historic Tuscan countryside. The view is spectacular of the gorgeous Tuscan hills, and the swimming pool is heaven! We had breakfast every morning in the beautiful (garden) sitting room (which has great views) and lunch on the terrace.

Afternoons were spent lounging by the pool to prepare for amazing meals either at the Villa or in one of the nearby restaurants. We went to Lucca on several occasions - it is nearby - and also spent time walking in the surrounding hillside. The hospitality was so warm, and whole experience was truly magical. We will be back!

Beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We felt fortunate to stay at the beautiful Pianella farmhouse villa for a week. The views were incredible and the atmosphere so serene and relaxing. The villa itself is quite spacious and we appreciated having a bathroom for each bedroom. The pool area was our favorite and had plenty of pools and umbrellas to take cover under. Even without AC the home usually stayed cool enough with the use of the many fans provided. The kitchen was well equipped, having everything you needed for cooking meals at home. Donatella cooked one night for us and the meal was quite large and included many of the rich local dishes. She was also readily available for help if needed - such as driving us into town for groceries. We weren't comfortable driving ourselves up the twisty narrow road so this was especially appreciated! We used Andrea's driving service for trips into the hill towns, the Chianti wine region and to Cinque Terre. They had safe and helpful drivers. Overall a heavenly place to spend a week or more!

A Lovely Sojourn in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

After negotiating the road up to the Farmhouse, we felt entirely relaxed and cared for during our 7 night stay by the excellent caretakers Valeria and her husband. The home is spotless with a well-stocked kitchen and modern bathrooms; yet it retains its historic character beautifully. We all LOVED the salt water pool and enjoyed a dip after a day's sightseeing in nearby Lucca, Pisa, San Gimniano, Siena and Florence. We enjoyed three dinners prepared for us by the amazing Donatella and her daughter, Sonya - a real treat with Tuscan specialties. The house commands a lovely view over the valley which we enjoyed every day; truly a memorable and happy time together.

Beautiful home and wonderful time with family

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 4 children ages 8-13) spent a wonderful week at the La Pianella Farmhouse this summer. We would highly recommend this rental. The house, pool and surrounding grounds were beautiful, exceptionally clean and well maintained. Mary Ann and Clare were wonderful in helping us arrange our visits (this was our second visit) and checking on us during our stay. Valleria also checked on us regularly and helped us with any question or concern.

The views of the beautiful grounds and surrounding areas are magnificent (from both inside the house and the outside seating areas). We all enjoyed swimming and relaxing by the beautiful pool. The inside of the house was lovely--so clean, beautiful and comfortable.

We loved our days relaxing at the villa. We also enjoyed several daytrips to Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the beach.

We were very fortunate to have Sonia cook for us during our stay. We are very thankful to Sonia for her wonderful cooking and kindness to our family.

Thank you Mary Ann and Clare for sharing your beautiful home in Tuscany. We would love to come stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a fabulous week at La Pianella farmhouse. Our initial trepidation at the narrow steep road to the house was quickly replaced by amazement at the house, grounds and views. The farmhouse had everything and more that we needed and catered excellently for our party of 4 couples, especially as each room had lovely views and a private bathroom. The house is beautifully decorated and furnished to a high quality and it has a lovely salt water pool. There is a very well stocked supermarket in the village which was very handy.

It was lovely to meet the owners and their friends whilst we were there and they helped make our stay a memorable one. Mary Ann showed us around the larger villa which is also very well furnished and is ideal for a large gathering.

Valeria, Enzo and Donatella, the property managers were very welcoming and made us feel comfortable and at home and were available if we needed anything.

The property is ideal for visiting Lucca and the coast which are a short car journey away. It was easy to take the train from Lucca to Pisa and Florence and to venture further afield into the heart of Tuscany by car.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay as it ticked all the boxes and more. We would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to anyone. It is a truly wonderful place- thanks!

Incredible week at the Farmhouse Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week at the Farmhouse Villa with 2 other couples, it was amazing

The owners made the booking process very easy and made us feel at ease throughout he process.

The villa and the grounds are maintained to a vey high standard, the rooms are spacious and well laid out.

The pool area and patio are very beautiful with amazing views and tiered olive trees

The Villa is close to Pizza, Florence, Lucca and Cinque Terre, we visited all during our stay.

Donatella and her daughter cooked for us every night and the food was better than any restaurant and the great thing was that we never had to leave the Villa. Donatella has a charming personality and we quickly became friends and look forward to seeing her again.

The property is even better than the pictures which is rarely the case. We are looking forward to returning again some day soon.

Thank you for the great vacation.
