Fantastic Villa Experience - Great For Extended Family and Friends
"Wow is the only way to describe this property and experience. We have stayed in the Lucca area 3 times now, and in 4 different villas, and we have stayed in villas in a lot of other European locations, and this one was spectacular. Located within a short drive or bike ride to the walled city, and still with all of the experiences you would hope for in a Tuscan property. The villa is huge and the bedrooms and common areas are as well. The pictures do not do it justice from a size perspective. We were 9 people in the Villa for a week, and there were 3 rooms that we did not use! The Villa is decorated as a personal home and therefore does not have the tourist, vacation rental feel, but rather that of a traditional Tuscan home. The Property itself is huge! IIt was great for playing family Bocce, outdoor table tennis and football. Eating meals outside was great. We bought groceries on arriving, but quickly discovered that we were encouraged to use vegetables from the gardens on the property, and the tomatoes, squash, peppers etc were incredibly delicious.
Five people in our group took Sonia up on the cooking lesson, and the experience was extremely educational and fun and the meal turned out great. We would highly recommend Sonia and the cooking lesson experience to others. By the way, we researched other options ahead of time and the lesson was not only great but was also a fraction of the cost of other lessons elsewhere.
The pool area gets its own paragraph. The pictures of the pool online give you the impression that the pool is large. That is an understatement. It is 25 m long, has both a large shallow and deep end, and is crystal clear as it along with the property are maintained every morning by a gentlemen who you wouldn't know was there if we hadn't woken early to have coffee and watch the sunrise. The size of the pool probably contributed to the fact that the pool temperature was perfect even on the hottest days, as it was too big to get too hot!
Biking on the wall was a highlight as was the winery tour at Colle Verde...
We have since learned that Alessandra has 2 other properties in Italy, and that Sonia has a property next door that also is for rent, and we will most certainly look to rent from them again. Thanks for a great holiday and for sharing your home with us"

"An ideal place to unwind out of season as well as the obvious summer dates. Transport was easily arranged on the advice of the very helpful owners. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable; well presented with a delightful living area with great views from the big windows to soak up some much needed winter sunshine. The welcome pack was a very nice touch and saved the us from the usual arrival angst when self catering.
The location was very quiet with no intrusive traffic noise but just in a 15 mins drive from the city centre: a real bonus!. The local facilities are within a walk if you like to walk and explore the area, with the beach close by (15 mins, even if we could not swim in december!) and the train station as well.
We used the heating and it kept the house very warm for the whole time but we also used the fireplace in the upstairs kitchen which was very funny.
All in all an excellent venue for our 2 weeks break which helped to fully recharge the batteries. We will be back as soon as we can.
Our thanks to Sonia for a really place to stay."
