About Ginette

My husband and I were previously healthcare workers in the North of England. and now live in Perth in Australia. We love the Italian lifestyle and use the Villa as often as we can!

Ginette purchased this house in 2008

Why Ginette chose Bagni di Lucca

We fell in love with the property the first time that we looked out of the Loggia over the garden and saw the amazing mountain views.

What makes this house unique

Vetteglia offers a fantastic base for seeing the Garfagnana and Northern Tuscany. It offers the best of both worlds. Beautiful scenery and tranquility but with the opportunity to see the famous sites in easy driving range.

Great property in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in Vetteglia in this great property in an amazing location. The views from the pool area of the mountains dotted with tiny villages are wonderful and the whole place is so tranquil - no traffic noise at all and all you hear are the birds and occasionally the goats when they are being herded through the field below. The property itself is lovely and a great deal of time and effort has been spend on bringing it up to date , whilst maintaining its character. Another bonus is that the rooms stay cool even when hot outside and being up in the mountains keeps the humidity down too. Great pool area too with tons of space for loungers and a big table to eat out on. The town of Bagni di Lucca is about 15 mins down through the hills but you get used to it and a couple of decent restaurants and small supermarkets there. Lucca is a loverly walled city and about 30 mins away - Pisa and Florence ( went there by train fronm Pescia) are easily in reach , as is the coast. The agent ( Loretta) who looks after the villa is really helpful and quickly sorted out a faulty internet router. Tuscany is a great place for a holiday and this house made a great base for our holiday to relax in.

Relaxing location with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa based on the panoramic views and facilities in the property and we were not disappointed. It was very well finished and we had everything we needed for our week's stay. It was great having an English speaking contact we were able to ring if needed. The surrounding area is peaceful and it really feels like you are living amongst the locals. There were so many beautiful places to visit and the villa is situated a convenient distance from the larger cities of Pisa and Lucca. The only slight downside was the very steep and windy road up to it from the nearest town, which does mean it takes a good 15 minutes to reach a main road. We were also slightly surprised on arrival to find that the property was not detached, but the neighbour caused us no bother and seemed very friendly. All in all this was a fantastic holiday and we highly recommend the villa and the area. It has definitely made us think about returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future. Potential guests reading this review should be reassured that, whilst the road to the village is indeed hilly, it is a fully finished road and a functioning bus route for the villages that allows passage of vehicles in each direction without problem.

Lovely views!!

  • 4 of 5

A gorgeous house with stunning views however others should be aware that the swimming pool area is overlooked by neighbours on two sides. We had a super fortnight, visited Lucca, Barga and Florence, enjoyed many an Aperol Spritz and had some tasty food! The first drive up the mountain from Bagni Di Lucca was a little hairy but we soon got used to it. The area is beautiful, the villages are interesting and most of the Italians we met were very friendly. Would love to return.

The villas is very well appointed and comfortable. Every need has been catered for, and the neighbours are friendly.

Amazing Holiday !

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa with the most amazing views. The pool was excellent. The local people in the village were very friendly. Richard and Ginette were very informative and helpful. We visited Florence, Pisa, Lucca and many villages in the area. The train links from Fornoli were extremely good. Our first time to Italy and it has made us want to re-visit and explore more. The villa is equipped with everything you could possibly need.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic Tuscan home this is it. The drive up the mountains was beautiful, I will warn you though the roads are extremely narrow and curvy so be careful driving but once you reach the house and see the view from the backyard it is breathtaking. Richard and Ginette were so helpful and always gave a quick response to any questions I had before we got to Italy. And once we arrived Sofia was able to help with things in the house (the heat and wifi weren't working but she had that fixed asap) we very much enjoyed our stay!
