About leandro nicoletti

We are from and live in the UK, but have family in Lucca. After several years of searching for the right property we came across this country farmhouse. It had everything we were looking for, the fantastic views, tranquillity, great position, close to local amenities and Lucca. We fell in love with it instantly, though the house needed a little updating, so the renovations began.

leandro nicoletti purchased this villa in 2013

Why leandro nicoletti chose Piana di Lucca

We've spent as much time as we can over the past 18 months putting our own stamp on the house and have now become very attached to the property. Its now part of our soul and we like to spend as much time there as we can. We've attempted to make the house feel like a home from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our holiday to Italy was made fantastic by being able to stay in this beautifully self contained traditional Italian home topped off with an untraditional home with Italian lets a lovely pool and beautiful gardens. The house is placed idyllically in the hills with picturesque views to every angle.

Car hire is a must to apriciate the surrounding area as the house is set in the hills where you will need to make short car journeys to find beautiful towns and little traditional Italian restaurants. The town of lucca is a short ten minute drive away and is a beautiful little city with everything to offer, beautifully preserved history, lovely shops, and a local supermarket if you wanted to stock up and eat in. Just an hours drive away you can visit Pisa, which is home to the famous 'leaning tower of Pisa' which is a sight not to be missed!

I could go on and on all day about how much I loved Italy and can't wait to return, but I'll leave you to find out for yourself.

Thank you so much Joy and Andy for letting us stay in your beautiful home. xx

Superb

  • 5 of 5

After a steady gentle climb into the hills above Lucca we were stunned by the beauty that is Casa Collina Verde. Its position and homely charm gave way to a substantial holiday residence with everything we could have wished for, and more. As a party of four friends we loved the space inside and out with plenty of room for privacy. A morning dip in the swimming pool set us up for breakfasting on the terrace, which even in May was a very warm and sunny spot. We spent most evenings at home cooking food bought at the local Supermarket 20 minutes away and cooked in the well equipped kitchen. The birds in the day and lovely fireflies in the evenings entertained us as we sat on the terrace eating our meals.

We found driving into the hills and down to Lucca quite easy with the use of a satnav provided by the owner and internet access was good.

Eating out was also easy and we highly recommend Tuscan food and wine from the local vineyards.

Truly a beautiful and memorable holiday.

Simply a wonderful villa with breathtaking views !

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don't do it justice. The moment you pull into the drive at the front of the house you are taken away by the views. The location is simply beautiful. The house is immaculate and you can see the owners have thought about everything you might need and more. Even walkie talkies which my kids loved.

The booking process was slick and Leandro the owner was very responsive and helpful with any questions I had and Philip their property manager was a great asset to their operation.

We spent most of the time lazing by the pool which is large and well maintained. The garden was also well looked after.

We enjoyed the ping pong by the pool and had loads of BBQ's whilst there. There were plenty of local restaurants in the surrounding hills where I can honestly say we had some of the best food I've ever eaten and the local people were very friendly.

We visited Pisa and Florence which was about an one hour away. We went into Lucca several times which is a wonderful town.

There were plenty of local amenities just a few minutes away in the car with also a very large supermarket.

We all loved our holiday and will return. What a villa !

A simply breathtaking, home from home villa.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at Casa Collina Verde. The villa and grounds were simply stunning and it is of an incredible standard. The photos on the website do not do it justice. The villa is a home from home, with everything you could possibly need. There are lots of little special touches from a pre-programmed sat nav (which was invaluable to us), laptop, Wi-Fi throughout the villa and grounds, and a welcome folder detailing lots of useful information about the villa and the surrounding area. Our 3 boys loved the large pool and grounds, and this is where we spent most of our time relaxing. The owners are very responsive to any questions you have by email, and the instructions to locate the villa from the airport, were extremely detailed and helpful. On arrival, we received a welcome pack, which was gratefully received, especially as we arrived very late at night, as it set us up for the morning. The villa is located high up in the hillside, so views from the grounds and every window in the villa are breathtaking. During our stay, Philip, the property manager, was extremely helpful in answering any further questions we had, and maintaining the villa to a high standard. The villa is situated perfectly, and during our stay we visited Lucca, Viareggio and Pisa. We hired a big estate car which made the first few trips up and down the last section of road to the villa a little daunting, however, we quickly became familiar with the stretch of road and subsequently made many trips, day and night without any concerns. The villa exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend this villa, and we look forward to returning again.

Highly recommended for a lovely Tuscan holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Collina Verde for a week in mid June.

This place is surrouded by coutry hillside and offers stunning panoramic views from each bedroom. Lucca is only a short 10-15 minutes drive away and there are also quite a few local resturants that do great local food/wines.

The private pool is a very good size and the expanse of gardens offers a great array of fruits such as lemons, figs, oranges, plums and much more.

Highly recommended for a lovely Tuscan holiday!

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the perfect retreat are amazing, but being there in person is out of this world.

The property has everything you need for being on holiday, it is home from home inside, but with better scenery, luxurious surroundings, incredible facilities and magnificent views.

The customer service was second to none, all you could need without having to think about it, great information pack, welcome pack and xcellent communication systems with wifi, both inside and outdoors, telephone, laptop and satellite TV.

The local restaurants were so friendly, provided great value meals, with very caring and attentive staff, full of local information and ideas for exploring the area.

the local village offers all of the convenience stores needed, we even found a shoe factory, as well as lovely coffee shops.

All of this and being so close to historic Lucca, full of incredible artefacts, buildings , artwork and of course the incredibly well maintained city walls.

We had a wonderful stay and can't wait until the next visit.

Thank you for making a dream holiday reality.
