About Villa Parenti
Hi Everybody! I am Riccardo, born in Lucca som eyears ago...Since 2006 my parents and me manage three holiday houses in Tuscany (Lucca, Abetone and Viareggio). We are looking forward to meet you!
Villa Parenti purchased this Villa in 2002
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Functional property for a spring break lots of chairs for a large group bbq worked well . Good transport links for the old town and access to station for visiting Pisa and Florence (€3.50 & €7.50 respectively).
Nice venue to relax after a days hiking.
Excellent location and well maintained
We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Parenti. It is a great base to enjoy Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the coast. The accommodation was very clean and Riccardo and his family were very friendly and on hand if there were any issues. I do not have any real criticism about the property but only a suggestion to help the improve future stays of your clients. I would suggest that you introduce some air conditioning down stairs to allow your clients an escape from the heat without disappearing to the bedrooms. But apart from that everything was great.
Great place sad about pizza oven
A great place to stay,the grounds were beautiful with loads of outdoor seating. The above ground pool was a big plus in the hot weather & 5 children.
When you travel from the other side of the world a few staples would have been a nice touch.
The greatest disappointment was not been able to use pizza oven or bbq as none was provided. The owner suggest coal from market accross the street & wood a 3 km car trip away. We were unable to purchase the wood.
The pictures showed timber for oven and a roaring fire.
The feature of the pizza oven was my main reason for booking the site.
PLEASE don’t get the garbage breakup of materials wrong.
We are very glad you appreciated so much our grounds and the swimming pool. However it is difficult to understand your disappointment for the bbq and pizza oven. The first day of your arrival we gave you indications regarding the places where you could find coal and wood. We could not imagine that you were never able to use the oven otherwise we would have helped you. During your two-weeks stay there was plenty of time to do so.
Excellent séjour !
Groupe de 9 personnes, nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans la maison de Riccardo.
Maison très bien équipée, très propre, des pièces spacieuses, parfait pour accueillir un groupe. Un extérieur très agréable avec une terrasse ombragée, piscine et bains de soleil.
Riccardo est très réactif, la communication avec lui est excellente.
Lucca est bien placé entre Pise, Sienne et Florence et pas très loin de l’embarcadaire pour l’ile d’Elbe ce qui permet de voir beaucoup de choses.
Tout le groupe se joint à moi pour vous remercier encore Riccardo.
Relax after-finals holiday home
After we (seven students) took our high school finals we stayed in this villa in Lucca and we had an amazing holiday! When we arrived we were welcomed by mr Parenti's parents and they gave us a home tour. They were very kind and provided us with everything we needed.
The house and the pool were even bigger than we thought they would be (according to the photos) so there was plenty room for everyone. The bedrooms were big and very comfortable and the bathrooms were very clean.
The weather was amazing so we spent a lot of time outside, from breakfast till late at night. There was a big table where we had ate and played a lot of games. The pool was lovely and very clean. Trees and the covered terrace provided plenty shadow so being outside was very relax!
We didn't have a car but it wasn't a problem because the grocery store and the bus stop were literally across the street. Tickets for both the bus (1.20EUR at a coffeeshop) and the train (3.50EUR) were very cheap, compared to Dutch standards. We traveled to Pisa and the beach at Viareggio by public transport and it is very well organised.
Walking to the center of Lucca was very easy as well, it took us about 20-25 minutes.
Maybe you could consider placing mosquito screens on the first floor bedroom windows because we all got bitten a lot at night but I think that was the only negative experience we have had the entire week.
Thank you for the lovely stay, we had a great week!
Dear Jelin, many thanks for your feedback!
Indeed, it was very useful. In order to improve the experience of our guests, we decided to install mosquitos nets on all bedrooms.
We hope to see you again!
Gutes Haus, tolle Lage
Vielen Dank an Familie Parenti ! Das Haus liegt in 3. Reihe sehr ruhig und trotzdem gut erreichbar. Zu Fuß in 10 Min in der Innenstadt von Lucca. Tolle Stadt! Das Haus reicht für 11 Personen und ist für Familien sehr gut geeignet. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett, hilfsbereit aber nicht aufdringlich. Bei Problemen (einmal Stromausfsll bei Gewitter) waren sie sofort erreichbar und könnten helfen. Allerdings mehr Mücken als erwartet! Vielen Dank, wir kommen gerne wieder.
The villa is located in a quiet corner at the end of a private path.
A supermarket is located directly across the street.
Other kinds of shops are within walking distance. The Old Town can be reached in 15 minutes Füss.
A bus stop is only 100m away.
