The Perfect Spot to Connect with Family
"My two adult children (+ one fiance) and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend. Our host greeted us warmly and was very helpful with directions, too! It was the perfect spot to re-connect with my adult children who live on the East Coast. The apartment is clean, spacious and well located. Plenty of seating to watch TV and the kitchen was well stocked for when we wanted to cook (note the coffee shop is across the street!). We just loved the town--cute restaurants within walking distance, farmer's market on the weekends and just very picturesque. This was my first experience with VRBO. After such a positive experience, I look forward to more vacation rentals by owner!"

"We enjoyed our visit here very much. The view from the condo was just beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai watching the ducks, fish and a very funny spoonbill diving for fish. We also watched the golfers hitting on to the #1 green.
The condo itself was great. It was stocked with everything needed. The kitchen had just been updated and was done very tastefully.
The whole area around the condo was beautiful for walking and a short walk to the beach.
A great place to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather."

"We arranged a vacation to the villa for ourselves and four other couples. After several days in Rome we headed to Lucca and "our" villa. The drive up to the villa only enhanced our excitment. Once there, we recieved outstanding personal service.... Sonia and Claudia welcomed us when we arrived at the villa and helped us get comfortable. they returned the next morning with breakfast and provided us with the colorful history of the villa and surrounding area. We all felt like we had made a lasting friendship. Claudia also provided many tips about travel in the area. We were given cell phones (to use), train information, maps, restaurant recommendations, along with tons of tidbits that were very helpful. The villa itself is everything you imagine a tuscan villa should be. It has a great history and authenticity along with all the comforts travelers love. (especially Americans) Every room in this home is warm and inviting with a spectacular view! On the practical side the bathrooms and kitchen are well appointed. Each of these rooms with its own sense to style and comfort. By far my favorite place is the outdoor dining area directly off the kitchen. Beautiful flowers accent the dining area and continue through out the property. The view from this area is unsurpassed except maybe by the view from the pool! The elegant pool is a welcome place after a day of site seeing or to spend the entire day. Next to the pool is a great covered patio and a view that is intoxicating all amoungest the olive trees! This was my third trip to Italy and my husbands second. We love Italy and all the place we have visited. The Villa Carciofaia by far remains our favorite. I can't think of a thing we were unhappy with except that we are not there now!"

"Great place! We absolutely loved this condo, very accommodating and felt like home away from home. We went as a family but great for couples too.Would highly recommend to others and would like to return in the near future."
