We spent a wonderful week here with two young children. Weather great - wall to wall sunshine and villa was perfect. Spotless and very well equipped. Gardens surrounding the villa are lovely with olive trees, lemon trees and lots of lovely herbs to cook with. Swings were great for the kids, as was the pool with was breathtaking views of the hills and valley around. Easy trips to Florence and Pisa. Wonderful tranquil spot - highly recommended.
We recently stayed at Casa Traspo for 2 wonderful weeks in July with our 2 sons (ages 8 and 10)! We highly recommend if you are looking for a quiet place to rest, cook gourmet meals, swim and enjoy nature as well as a place that is close enough to take short trips to magnificent places like Lucca, Florence, Pisa and San Gimignano. You get the best of both worlds.
Marcello and Antonia (the owners) are extremely hospitable, helpful, and friendly. They provided ideas for excursions as well as local know-how (where is the best food store and so forth). They are fantastic hosts and made our stay extremely enjoyable, well beyond our expectations.
The house itself is on a hillside where you have wonderful views of several nearby villages. The property is beautiful to walk around and the garden contains a variety of plants (including spices and a lemon tree). The outside pool was great and we used it every day.
The house itself is on 2 floors with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The beds were very comfortable and each person had their own set of towels (bath and pool). The bathrooms were very nice with all (and then some) the comforts of home including hair dryers and very good lighting.
The kitchen was fully equipped with all the comforts of home. Coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher, oven, stove, etc. In addition, we had a modern washing machine.
Next time we are in Florence, we will book this property again. It is a rare find if you are a family with children. One recommendation if you book is to have a good car for driving the mountain roads and small cities in Italy.
