About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

This beautiful 350 m2 villa - gracefully furnished in country style with precious pieces of furniture among which some wonderful Italian antiques - is the result of the skilful renovation of an ancient farmhouse. Villa Stefania is located in a 10-hectare land, on the top of one of Lucca countryside hills, just a few minutes from the town’s historical centre and from other important cities of Tuscany like Pisa and Florence, containing artistic treasures certainly worth discovering.

My name is Giuseppe Attilieni. I live in Lucca and I like very much to travel. My passion for tourism has completely involved me since 2008, and now I am working full time both as a property manager and property owner.I am also the owner of a company specialized in tourist services which relies on the collaboration of skilled suppliers ,so I can fulfill the following requests of my guests : - Tuscan cooking classes - Transfers from/to Pisa and Florence airports - Wine tasting tours - Guided tours of Lucca, Florence, Siena, Pisa and 5 terre

I hope to have the opportunity to meet you and make your holiday a wonderful Tuscan experience.

Giuseppe Attilieni purchased this villa in 1985

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located in a panoramic position on the top of an enchanting hill. The area is very peaceful and the garden surrounding the house, well-attended and rich in many varieties of flowers - roses, geraniums, hydrangeas - pleases both the eye and the mind. You can relax in the shade of the lime-trees or sun-bathe along the beautiful private 13x6 metre swimming pool. Reserved for house guests, the swimming pool is also equipped with night lighting and every possible comfort: deck-chairs private solarium garden tables and chairs shower restroom dressing room Three hectares of woods with tall and leafy trees like oaks, pines and chestnut-trees, offers the opportunity for pleasant walks, sheltered from the summer heat, during which you can happen to meet the little inhabitants of the wood: squirrels, foxes, porcupines and a wide variety of birds such as blackbirds, sparrows and nightingales. ...and the most imaginative visitors and children are also likely to meet the Linchetto, the teasing elf of the Tuscan woods... The olive-grove surrounding the garden along the hillcrest yields each year an excellent dense and tasty olive oil. Ask the landlords and they will happily let taste this oil: there’s nothing better than a slice of toasted bread with this oil!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed in this wonderful Villa for one week, from the 1st until the 8th of May 2010.

It was one of the best holidays of my life. The house was marvellous, very elegant and equipped with all comforts. The private pool area, with SPA, it's immersed in a superbe landscape, made by green, olive grooves and roses.

The owners are very friendly and always available for any kind of help.

What can I say? The perfect place for a perfect holiday.

Perfect summer house for families

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6 and a toddler and never felt we were living on top of one another because of the size and layout of the house. Having said that, the house - although a bit dated- wasn’t really the star of the show. It was the grounds and the pool area which are beautiful. We made the most of the great bbq area as well.

We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble.

The only thing we would maybe prefer would be to include the cleaning and electric in the price. It’s the first time we have been asked for this separately.

We loved Lucca and the botanical gardens with the butterfly house in the next village. Florence has changed a lot since we were there last. It’s very commercialised and we enjoyed it less this time.

Overall we had a great family holiday here and would definitely return

Family Vacation at Villa Stefania

  • 5 of 5

Villa Stefania was the perfect vacation home for our family. The home and the property are both beautiful and well maintained. The home is very spacious, so even with eight adults, we all had our private space. The outdoor space around the pool and hot tub are beautiful and made for a pleasant evening of relaxation. And, of course, two of our competitive family members had fun playing foosball, while the third played the role of commentator! The kitchen was the perfect set up for the night we had the chef come to teach us how to make an authentic Italian meal, and the large dining table provided the perfect setting for us to enjoy it. We all had a great time. Thanks for providing the perfect home for our family vacation Giuseppe, and thank you for always being so responsive to my e-mails. Maria

paradise in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us staying at this wonderful, picturesque hilltop villa. The grounds were immaculate. The pool was serene, clean and accommodating. The bedrooms were large and each family got their own private full bath with an extra full bath for the kids to share. The personal chef/learn to cook experience we booked through the owner Giuseppe was AMAZING!!!! Alessandra, our chef, was patient and highly entertaining. Giuseppe and his family were very helpful with all of our needs and had answers to all of our questions. English speaking and very friendly. His father, who lives on the grounds, even baked for us! So thoughtful. Very central location. You must rent a car to get around, but you can easily visit the center of Lucca, Cinque Terre, Florence, Pisa and so much more! Morning coffee out on the terrace, overlooking the hills was one of our favorite things to do at the villa! This place really felt like home to us and our children. Must come back to Italy to visit this villa again!!!

Bellisima!!!!

Spectacular vacation in the Tuscan countryside

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 10 in our party, adults and two teenagers. We were three families and it was the perfect house for us. The kitchen was very large and we were able to cook meals without running into eachother! The rooms and bathrooms were all spacious. The outside porch was perfect for morning coffee, card games, hanging out and breakfast and dinners all together. The pool area was utlized quite a bit by all of us! The view of the countryside spectacular and the hosts were accomodating, service oriented, kind and delightful. The location is centrally located and we took trips to Firenze, Viareggio, and a winery in Chianti. You must have a car. The entire stay was amazing and if we come back, Villa Stefania will be where we stay! Giuseppe, Antonio and all, Mille Grazie.

What an Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

My familty and I spent 11 glorious days in this beautiful villa. Our hosts made all of us feel very welcome and couldn't have been more helpfull. The villa is extremely well equipped with just about everything you could ever need. Even if you never leave the property I guarantee you will have a wonderful time. Maybe one of these days we will be able to visit again!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We were only 4 people, but we could have had 8 or more and been lost in the house. It has beds and bathrooms as indicated, and the kitchen had everything we needed, but the best features were the owner Giuseppe and especially his parents in the house next door.......they were wonderful.

The gardens and grounds and the and the panoramic views of the valley were stunning. In eight days,we only ate 1 meal inside....the rest of the time we ate on the huge covered veranda (including a fabulous meal prepared for us).

I loved taking one of the bikes and riding around the Tuscan mountainside, and we also walked the same roads.

You need a car to get around the area, and a GPS is very helpful.

We loved the property, the pool and Hot Tub, the region and the Italian people.

There is a supermarket about 7 kilometers towards Lucca, and it has great food and wines.

Lucca is a wonderful city to visit, and you can park there and take the train to Florence, or drive to other areas around. For us 8 days went too fast!
