We spent a month in Lucca with a very comfortable stay at this property which we discovered having spent a family holiday at the owners other property Il Mandolato.
The owners are very welcoming and very helpful but not intrusive. We liked it so much we have booked another stay in 2015.
The accommodation is comfortable with a large double bedroom opening onto the large patio which extends across the front of the apartment, the door from the main room also opens onto this patio.
The second bedroom contains comfortable single beds and we think this room is suitable for children as the large window of this room is across the top of the wall adjoining the main bedroom. but privacy is not an issue.
The bathroom facilities are good with excellent shower
The living,dining, kitchen area is in one large room opening to the patio and has everything one requires with full kitchen facilities and utensils, large fridge freezer, dining table with 6 chairs, cupboards , TV, sofa and there is also a desk in one corner which is very useful. Laundry facilities are available alongside the property.
Dining out on the patio is lovely in the evening or breakfast in the morning.
There is a small garden with olive tree from the patio and walk through this to car parking and across a small private lane to your own garden looking towards the mountains with an above ground pool and garden furniture. The owners also allow access to the rest of their property although one should respect the privacy of the garden with the inground pool which is rented with Il Mandolato
There is a large supermarket a short drive outside the next village and some good restaurants in Verciana and outlying villages.
This is an excellent location for the area, Lucca is a 10 minute drive where there is parking outside the walls excellent inexpensive transport to Florence, Siena and the Chianti region.
The sea is 20 minutes drive away
A car is necessary and we have more exploring to do especially to the north into the Garfagnana mountains.
If you want a self catering holiday in Italy in a location to explore art and nature this is the spot.
As this is on the ground floor, unlike the Owner's other property, it is also suitable for disable people although the above ground pool would not be.
If required the owners may be able to arrange Italian tuition which I did with an excellent tutor.
We would highly recommend both property, location and the welcome and help from the owners.
