The moment the big iron gates opened and we drove up the winding drive we knew we were in for a treat. The farm house is large, authentic and beautiful and has magnificent views. We were 3 generations from 8 to 80 and there was something for everybody. Big pool, barbecue area and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the views and large garden . The house is within easy reach of Lucca and Pisa. We had Allessandra come in and cook us a feast. A real highlight of delicious food. She showed us how to make pasta and helped the boys make their own. Our youngest grandson asked if she was on TV. The answer was no but he concluded she should be, she was SO GOOD. The stay was a lovely birthday celebration and we would definitely recommend - and go again.
Villa Stefania, Tuscany
Very good location and beautiful surroundings. The house is charming, including the pool area. We missed having a large frying pan and some of the kitchen equipment is getting a bit tired. Otherwise we enjoyed the house and the stay despite suboptimal weather.
Beautiful property w/nice amenities
We had a wonderful stay and Giuseppe was a great host and responded quickly to any requests for recommendations, etc. or questions very quickly.
The property was great for a large group (of 9 people!) and was a great base for day trips to Lucca, Florence, Chianti and Pisa. We enjoyed many evening meals at the villa - the kitchen was our "hub" to start and end our days. The views and amenities outside were fantastic.
We had an amazing time at Villa Stefania. There were 9 of us - four adults and 5 children. The house was very large and comfortable, and the grounds and view were absolutely beautiful. The house was conveniently located and well stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Giuseppe was a wonderful host, and gave excellent restaurant and activity recommendations. Giuseppe arranged for us to have an authentic cooking class at the villa - the food was incredible, and we all had so much fun learning about the cuisine and cooking the food. We would definitely recommend this property, and hope to stay there again soon!
There is a lot to like about Villa Stefania. The outdoor area is very large, with gorgeous views and beautifully kept grounds. There are several shady dining areas outside and since the weather was lovely, we ate outside all the time. The pool area is stunning, very large and plenty of room for everyone to have fun. The house of flowers was a useful addition because it had an extra fridge which was necessary for all those extra bottles of wine.
The house itself is very large and was very clean on arrival. All bedrooms had aircon apart from the lower ground floor but that was quite cool anyway. It would have been useful to have separate pool towels rather than having to use the same towels that were for use in the bathrooms. The kitchen although charming and rustic, was a bit of a challenge as there was a huge lack of power sockets for the amount of small appliances and there was a lack of large glasses. However after a call to Giuseppe he arranged a quick delivery of glasses to the villa!
The villa is in a convenient spot for Lucca and Giuseppe recommended a lovely restaurant in Montecarlo which we visited. We also had a dinner catered at the villa one evening and this was very special, we all enjoyed it a lot. Antonio, Giuseppe's father, made us a lovely cake which we really enjoyed and this was much appreciated.
Overall, we all really loved our stay in Tuscany, the outdoors of the villa cannot be faulted, Giuseppe was very easy to contact and responded immediately to any emails or requests.
I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed and have spent a nice holiday at Villa Stefania.Also the advices are much appreciated: as regards the equipment of the kitchen, at checkin we always say to our guests that, in case something is missed, to let us know and that, if we can, we will provide immediately. Unfortunately it is very difficult to check all the equipment every time, especially when we have the check in the same day of the checkout, as it usually happens. As for towels, we already provide one large and one medium size for each of our guests, without additional cost, and we do, for free, a complete change of bed linen and towels for stays of 2 weeks and more. Providing specific pool towels could be a new service upon request for a fee: we are taking in consideration the hypothesis.
Beautiful Tuscan villa with amazing views
The villa is stunning ! Gorgeous winding driveway up a hill to the villa you know you are going to get the Tuscan views that you dream of.The villa is large and spacious and old Tuscan style with amazing beams and brick ceilings.
We were a group of 9 people from Scotland and the States meeting for a family reunion and there was more than enough space for us all.Everyone slept amazing and the beds were comfortable.The grounds and pool house were beyond our dreams so well kept and the pool is huge and so much fun after a day in Lucca which is about 20-30 mins in a taxi .
Giuseppe was so helpful with taxis and always very responsive to any questions we asked. I didn’t have luggage for nearly 3 days and he was willing to help by calling them, I had given them his cell number and he arrived with the guys st the villa to show them where to go once they had called him. He arranged our airport transfers and arranged an amazing wine tour for us. The drivers were so nice and spot on time anytime we used them.We also got him to book us a private chef for my daughters birthday, Alessandra was great and took the time with my daughter who has special needs to show her how to make pasta , it was amazing !
We honestly would book this villa again in a heartbeat , thanks Guiseppe
