This house has been renovated beautifully and retains much of its original character. The kitchen has a lovely retro feel to it. The views are very tranquil and this is the perfect place to rest or, if you choose, to get out and about, as we did. Great location. You can easily travel to Lucca or Pisa by car. Great place! We would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Tuscany!
This is an old farmhouse in the lovely hills of Matraia, beautifully restored, quirkily furnished, and wonderfully cool in the hot weather we had. Although we visited Lucca and Pisa, both close by, we were always glad to come back to our hideaway, or to visit the village and other villages in the vicinity. The neighbours were friendly (as were their cats!) and it was expecially reassuring to have an English speaker, Sylvia, only a few minutes away. We would certainly come here in the future if we visited this part of Italy again - and it would repay another trip.
You can find anything here, from an iron to a hair dryer, from an extension lead to a sewing kit. And herein lies my one tiny quibble: there is a lot of space and furniture, the house would sleep 6 people, but there are few places for clothes.
