About Giuseppe

This villa was my mother's house who fell in love when she saw this villa during a trip in Tuscany. Since 1970 nothing has changed everything has remained as it was. No house was built more around, only the pine trees have become giants. Once you could see the sea, now you can only hear it because it's only a hundred meters away. For this reason, the villa was named in memory of Lydia because so loved this wonderful house and this quiet place.

I hope you will understand how we love this house and we would like to passed down to you our passion for this villa full of memories we grew up here in this charming place.

Giuseppe purchased this villa in 1970

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello dear Family Bosselli,

Now is the time already over so quickly and my daughter came with a smile from her vacation back to you.

They all felt very comfortable and spent a wonderful holiday with you .The facilities , the cleanliness , the location , ... everything was very good . However, they were very surprised that they did not in itself the house , there were two special separate apartments.

In their ads , we have not read this. But the other family from Munich was very friendly and all was ok!

Thank you very much for your very nice house and for your friendly support!

Many greetings to you and we wish you all the best,

Gunilla, Catharina and all her friends <3

hello Mrs. Boselli,

I hope it go to you and your family well. Today I have the bail received, thank you that this so well folded

The vacation in your house was simply super, everything fit. The house is equipped and for 4 adults and 4 children optimally furnished, also our Labrador Nico felt very good very well. In your house there is everything which man needs and still more, the situation is very calmly lain and nevertheless one is to foot in 5 minutes at the very nice beach or at the promenade.

If we should come again into the Toskana, then we will inquire in any case again with you whether the house is to be still rented.

The families Wagensonner and Welti with children thank you you and your two coworkers quite cordially.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. You have a very good villa and we felt us very well in this place. The pool was like on the pictures and it was not dirty. Often it was tree needle ‎in pool but it is nature. I think we will come back for the next holiday.

Thanks for all.

Wonderful house with an amazing adventure garden

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Lydia for wonderful eight days, nearly always sun, 20 degrees, 2 minutes to the sea, the best beach ever - golden sand, in April you can play ball and frisbee with your family and your dog as you are nearly alone, we loved the long walks at the beach and lonely dinners in the amazing sunsets.

We also loved the great adventure garden with the high fence around (excellent for our little dog...), there is enough space and possibility for all kind of sports (table tennis, table kickers, Jogging, hide and seek - Easter eggs!- jumping on the trampolin. We really miss the wonderful bakery around the corner with its lovely paninis and cakes, we miss the best espressi we drank while sitting in armchairs on the beach......

For us it was the best holiday in Italy we ever had- without mosquitos and the terrible hot sun in summer-!

Of Course we will come back in April! Thanks a lot!!!
