About the property

Villa on the hills of Lucca, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 sofà-bed Sleeps 5 people

Completely renewed, inside the house and outside, on January 2017.

Charming treasure trove within our rustic Tuscany. A villa belonging to 18th century with its perfect proportions and fascinating structure. It has been renovated maintaining the original characteristics and re-furbished with autenthic, original furniture. The elegant style and attention to detail, create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The rustic villa is situated within an olive grove, surrounded by the sounds of nature- but nearby, about one hundred meters far, the owners are living. Lucca is a medioeval town, full of history and surrounded by unique, centuries-old walls. The house lies 11 km. from the centre of Lucca and is ideally located to take day trips to Florence -70km., Pisa -20km, Siena and S.Gemigmano -90km. The Lucca region reaches as far as the mediterrean coast in Versilia, where the famous Forte dei Marmi is situated. The elegant beaches and fine sand are renowned within this area. If one day you remain at home, you can enjoy the view of Lucca from the terrace.

Weekly prices include: the rent of the property, private parking, all bedlinen and towels.

Wireless internet is available free.

Weekly prices DO NOT INCLUDE: electricity, gas (for hot water and kitchen), final cleaning..Gas for heating to pay on consumption.

Why Massimo chose Media Valle del Serchio

The charm of this house and of this place will enter inside your heart.

What makes this villa unique

A piece of real Tuscany : completely absorbed among about 300 olive trees, an enchanting view over the city of Lucca and over the old church of the village.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Massimo, for an extrodinary experience in your family home. It was just as the photos showed us and more. The hills offer a magnificent view day and night. The flowering trees and daffodils greated us on the approach up the road to Toninos place. We were so happy in this peaceful and elegantly redesigned farm villa. Daily trips to Lucca a pure joy and the food and quality of wines to choose from a dream come true. We loved it, and will be back next year.

Thank you

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at this wonderful Tuscan Farmhouse was one of those moments! The view that met us did take our breath away.

Everything about this house, inside and out, was magical. The house is furnished eloquently..rustic/chic, and one feels instantly 'at home'.

Massimo met us at Lucca so we could follow him to the house, very much appreciated, and when there, he explained very fully regarding the running of the house etc. Massimo lives locally, and it was clear that if we had any problems, he would attend immediately.

I cannot really find adequate words to describe the beauty and uniqueness of the area surrounding the house, it has to be experienced, and I will remember and treasure this experience forever.

Charming! Peaceful! Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as it is pictured. Very charming and beautifully decorated. The only surprise was just how beautiful the view is of the valley below and the town of Lucca. Pictures just don't do it justice. In the two weeks I spent there, I learned a great deal of how everyday life is in Italy. The house was very clean and everything was in working order.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing a lovely setting to relax the day away. Lucca proper is very beautiful town to visit. It is also accessible to many other towns for day trips.

Massimo, the owner, was very accommodating and always available should you have need. He is a good source of knowledge of how to get around not just Lucca, but Italy in general. He is also a very, very nice person.

Casa Tonino has all the modern conveniences, scenic views and rustic Italian charm combined.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the first 2weeks of October in Casa Tonino and every day was perfect. Massimo met us at McDonalds and escorted us up the hill to the house. The drive took a little getting used to but we quickly adjusted.

Everything in the house was just enough - nothing was lacking and not so much that you were always putting things away. Massimo explained how the heat and gas stove worked, trash collection etc. He answered all our questions and we were left to enjoy our stay.

We cooked our own meals (market is close by). We ate at local restaurants (The Marvelous is Marvelous!) We took a cooking class nearby that Massimo researched and suggested at my request. It was so fun!

We met the locals living next door and everyone was friendly and gracious.

We would recommend this place without hesitation.

Not only is the location and the house itself ideal but with Massimo taking care of you there is nothing to do but relax and enjoy every moment.

It was a perfect vacation, we will be back.

Thank you Massimo!

Original rustic house with lovely views to Lucca

  • 5 of 5

From being met by our charming and very caring host, Massimo, who guided us to his lovely rustic property in the hills above Lucca, to his helpfulness throughout even to printing off our boarding passes, we had the most fabulous holiday. The property is well situated, with importantly for self catering a very good supermarket only 10 minutes away, so close to beautiful Lucca itself, and from there an hours bus ride to the beauties of Florence. Massimo recommends a typical restaurant, Le Meraviglie approximately 20 minutes drive. A great recommendation. We don't speak Italian and got slightly confused over the starter translated as 'House Fantasy'! Beware, the various plates just kept coming. Fantastic! We have very happily given the property 5 stars, but with a minor caution. We dished up lots of lovely meals, despite the restriction of a small 2 gas burner hob - but all as property description. Finally, a huge thanks to Massimo, for his superb hosting skills.

A lovely location, very relaxing and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very helpful and met us in Lucca so we could follow him to the property. If you want peace and quiet with fantastic views of Lucca, both at night and during the day this location will not disappoint you. The garden was a beautiful setting for a glass of wine and BBQ. Just what you want to come back to after visiting Florence, walking the Lucca Wall or just travelling around this breathtaking country. Thank you Massimo for making us feel so welcome.

The city of Lucca boasts some wonderfully charming urban spaces: the most famous of these is surely the Piazza dell'Anfiteatro, built on the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheatre by the architect Lorenzo Nottolini, a unique architectural marvel. The main artery running through the historic centre is the narrow Via Fillungo, a medieval street lined with the city’s most prestigious shops. Some of Lucca’s other picturesque squares include Piazza San Michele, the city’s historic fulcrum, and Piazza San Martino, the centre of religious life and the site of the renowned Duomo di San Martino. Its immense historic-monumental opulence has prompted a recent proposal to include Lucca’s historic centre – which also comprises a historic playhouse, the Teatro del Giglio - in UNESCO’s world heritage list.
