Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Pennechio is a fabulous property, centrally located near many places, such as Pisa, Lucca, Viareggio beaches (a must)! The grounds are beautiful, the neighborhood true Tuscany with its old well preserved architecture. The home is cozy, and the air conditioned rooms are quite pleasant. Stefania is a wonderful host! My husband accidentally left a large sum of $$ in one of the bedroom drawers and she and her housekeeper made sure to get in touch with us to wire it back! Thank you soooo much for that! You won't go wrong at this villa! It has everything you need!

Comfortable villa in the Tuscan Hills

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay at Villa Pennechio. The house was very comfortable, and the garden lovely with beautiful views down to Lucca and of the surrounding hills. Our grandson enjoyed playing in the extensive olive grove garden. Well placed for exploring the area. We spent two days in Lucca, and could have spent more if we had the time. Lucca is a beautiful town, and we had great fun on our quinquecycle around the city walls. There are numerous palazzo style villas in the area, our favourite being Villa Reale di Marlia, a short drive away, where we were the only visitors on a glorious day. We enjoyed walking on the footpaths to the local country restaurant Canapino and to the hillside villages above the villa. The local supermarket, Esselunga was very well stocked.

Lovely family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our two dogs and my parents enjoyed this lovely villa in mid-October. It was a great hopping off point for enjoying Lucca, the surrounding wineries, Florence and a day trip to Chianti’s vineyards. The house and property are just as beautiful as the pictures, and the kitchen was well equipped for family dinners. We are looking forward to returning soon!

Fantastic time at rustic Tuscan villa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the most amazing stay at this beautiful villa. It is has a lovely rustic charm and has all the mod-cons you need for a comfortable stay. The villa itself was perfectly clean and well presented. The garden, outdoor dining area & pool were also immaculate and looked exactly as the photo suggest! Perfect for whiling away time amongst stunning Tuscan scenery. The location is also excellent for day trips to Lucca & Pisa, and we also managed further day trips to Florence, Sienna and North to Manarola. Perfect in every way! Stefania the host was most helpful, taking us to get pizza for dinner on our first night despite it being late & raining heavily. She also gave us good directions to local amenities and places of interest. I hope we can go back someday (soon!)

Everything you could wish for in a villa.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described, very clean and immaculately maintained. It is in an enclosed garden which makes it ideal for a family holiday. There is ample parking and a locking gate. The pictures do not convey the full extent of the garden which continues away from the house into a small olive grove. The pool has an automated cleaning device so is pristine and the covered garden terrace is so luxurious. Hung with drapes so the sunlight can be controlled, it is furnished with a dining table and chairs, recliners and four deck chairs. The house has been restored and refurbished very tastefully, retaining most original features but also adding all mod cons. The furniture is almost all antique, and dressed with ornate dried flower arrangements. Everything worked which does not always happen in a holiday home! Stefania was delightful to meet and was very helpful. We drove to visit nearby Lucca and som coastal resorts. The house was so comfortable and easy we ate at home. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to a friend.
