About the Owner

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.

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

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.

Location

From the Owner

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.
