Charming rustic villa with fantastic view over the city.

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Villa on the hills of Lucca, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 sofà-bed Sleeps 6 people

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.

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

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.

Authentic Italian home in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

We wanted an authentic place to call home while staying in Tuscany and this charming little stone house was perfect for that.

We arrived late from Rome and Massimo was kind enough to meet us at McDonald's just off the freeway in Lucca at midnight so we could follow him to the house. We really appreciate him meeting us so late! He showed us around the house and explained things we would need to know for our stay there.

The very first morning we were greeted with a view that cannot be described, it has to be experienced. To open the shutters and look over Tuscany was peaceful, serene, gorgeous. We knew we would have a view but weren't prepared for the beauty!

The home itself was fine for six of us. Massimo was very honest and upfront about the size of the home, but it worked fine for our stay in Lucca. The two upstairs bedrooms had a full/double bed while the little couch on the main floor pulled out and slept two. All mattresses were comfortable.

The drive was a little hairy at first! We didn't expect a 15+ min or so winding up the hills of Lucca so if you are afraid of heights, just a warning! Thankfully we were following Massimo on our first trek up, in the dark, otherwise it would have been a bit scary at first. Once we did it in the daylight, and over the course of a few days, it was fine. We also had a van to seat the six of us so if you have a smaller car it probably wouldn't seem as scary. The road to the house was paved nicely and in great shape.

Massimo's hospitality was appreciated, from the welcome gift of wine and pasta, to meeting us late, to once again meeting us in at the local hospital when our young daughter had a bad fall.

If a charming, authentic Tuscan villa is what you are looking for, with unimaginable views then this is the place for you!

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived (4 adults) Massimo met us in Lucca so we could follow him up and and up to the villa. The rustic villa surrounded by olive trees was exactly what you see on the web site and much more. The view overlooking the beautiful city of Lucca was breathtaking. The villa is well maintain, very clean and is equipped with all the modern amenities. The beds are extremely comfortable.

The owner, Massimo was always quick at answering any questions and in helping with any problems for example, we had a problem with the rental vehicle and needed a towing and garage, Massimo arranged everything and made it so easy for us...thank you Massimo.

I would not heisted I. Recommending this villa to my friends and family an hope that we will be able to go back to this cosy Tuscane Villa ....ciao Massimo and again thank you.....❤️

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.
