“Beautiful, secluded villa in lovely grounds.”
Reviewed 8 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is a lovely, big and airy villa with large bedrooms and 4 good bath/shower rooms. The upstairs bedrooms all have aircon - though it did struggle in 38 degree heat! The basement does not, but it's much cooler down there anyway. The kitchen is well appointed with plenty of utensils, cutlery, crockery and glasses. There is plenty of outdoor seating both in front, at the rear and by the pool and we didn't even use the living area (or switch on the TV!).

The pool is lovely and a good size, with plenty of sunbeds/chairs. It didn't appear to be cleaned by the owner during our week there, but there is an automatic cleaner/hoover and net which we used. There are loads of trees, so be prepared for lots of leaves in the pool!

The grounds and garden area are beautiful and very well tended and there is plenty of space for ball games etc. There's also a BBQ and pizza oven next to the rear seating area.

The villa is reached up a driveway from the road and has electronically controlled gates (for which you'll be given two key fobs). The driveway zig-zags up through some trees and there's a parking area in front of the villa.

The village is about 1km up the road and there's a good sized Conad supermarket there which will easily cater for all your shopping needs (and wine/beer!). There's also 3 or 4 restaurants/pizzerias in the village. We only tried one of them, and ate out in nearby Lucca a couple of times.

There were 7 of us staying at the villa - my wife and I, 2 kids and 3 grandparents and there was plenty of room for us all and it didn't feel at all crowded. It was also our first trip to Tuscany and whilst I have nothing to benchmark it against, would happily stay here again. It's in a great location - 5 mins from Lucca, 30 mins from Pisa, an hour from Florence, 40 mins from the beach.

The owner will be there to meet you - and provide you with a lovely hamper of local food. He'll show you round the property and expect the EUR1000 deposit - which he gives back when you leave. He lives in a small cottage away from the Villa but on the same land. The one difficulty is that he speaks absolutely no English. Given our Italian was fairly poor it was incredibly difficult to understand anything he said. It would perhaps have been useful if the English speaking agent had been there at check-in for non-Italian customers.

Finally some tips on travelling around. You can get to and from Pisa (incl airport) "cross country" avoiding tolls with only about a 4/5 min time sacrifice (the tolls all add up!). Parking in Pisa can be problematic and usually you have to pay. We by accident found plenty of free parking in "Via Ugo Rindi". There's a parking area running alongside the road (very potholed). If you go to Florence I can recommend parking in Villa Costanza and taking the Tramvia into the centre. Plenty of parking at the station - the station side was free but I understand there's a small cost on the new larger overflow the other side. Note - when I went it was summer holidays so plenty of parking and I'm not sure if this is the case on a working day outside the holidays. It's an easy 30 min (and cheap) journey into central station.
