About the Owner

The Property is managed after by our friends Paul & Raffaella, who live nearby.

We have recently purchased the House and intend on spending as much quality time there as possible, we enjoy spending time at the House and having Family and friends stay over, we have fallen in love with the area around Bagni Di Lucca as it offers us everything we need and gives us chance to relax away from our stressful working lives. Our children love it as we can walk in the nearby forests or paddle around in the River Lima there is always something to occupy them in such a peaceful, safe and beautiful area.

An authentic Italian Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house. We were a group of 6, the house offered us plenty of space, it's very quaint and was spotlessly clean. The pool was such an asset and much bigger than the photographs suggest. Paul, the manager was so helpful, at the booking stage and in Italy. We unfortunately got lost and he was so patient, meeting us when we finally arrived, giving us super helpful local information.

The local area is stunning, magnificent views at every turn. There are two lovely restaurants in the village and plenty of facilities at nearby Bagni di Lucca, a chance to marvel at the scenery on your way down there. I would not hesitate to recommend this truly wonderful place, I did not want to come home!!

What a fabulous place!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this place. The photos do not do justice to the space and layout.The views from the house are amazing. The only negative that we can think of is the lack of air-conditioning or a ceiling fan to keep the air circulating. The outdoor space is better than we imagined from the photos. It has a sunny aspect for most of the day and it is a real oasis in the Tuscan heat. The pool is a reasonable size and is well-maintained. The house can accommodate up to seven people comfortably, but a party of that size may require more sun loungers. We have recommended the house to friends already for its location in Tuscany and within the village of Benabbio. The village is quaint and quirky, with its cobbled alleyways and arches, and abundance of potted flowers and shrubs. Both restaurants in the village are excellent, and reasonably priced. We arrived a little later than expected at the house but Paul, the manager greeted us with a big smile and couldn't have been more helpful and informative. This was a fabulous holiday and we would go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks Alan for your wonderful review, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Benabbio. I will pass your comments re AirCon on to the owners, but as you will know we have had an exceptionally hot period of weather for the time of year, but we mustn't complain, at least we can cool off in the pool. Hope to see you again, best wishes Paul.
