The home, our hosts and our stay were al incredible. The home is rely one of a kind, cut from the pages of an old Tuscan manuscript. The views from the mountain terrace are one of a kind now burned into our memories for a lifetime. Our hosts were so genuinely kind as to impress of with the happiness and comfort of our oldest friends and neighbors. Don’t miss the trattoria headed down the mountain into

Town! This place could sleep much larger groups than ours and

Offered all amenities from full laundry to fresh chicken eggs! What an amazing experience Gratzie Clio and Mama!

Peaceful, Beautiful, spacious, idyllic!!!

  • 5 of 5

Clio was such a welcoming and wonderful hostess!! She left apples for us and the kitchen was stocked with spice, oil, and vinegar staples. The property is so amazingly gorgeous, with beautiful views of Lucca below and olive trees all around. Clio has an extended family of birds, a rabbit, a cat, two dogs and a chicken that are so fun to be around!! The house is so comfortable and spacious and feels like home. We so hated to leave. We did day trips during our stay, and wished we had scheduled more time to just enjoy the pool and the beautiful yard!

Beautiful, large and airy

  • 4 of 5

We loved our star at Clio's house despite problems with bees in the swimming pool, due mainly to the trees that were flowering at the time we stayed(May/June). However Clio went straight out and bought a paddling pool l for our granddaughter to use. The views were breathtaking but perhaps not the house for those wanting total peace and quiet as is on very narrow road and drivers beeped on every bend which did become a little bit irritating. We would visit again though and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Clio xx

Beautiful Tuscan Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a most wonderful week at La Mi Nonna - what a gem. A rustic traditional farmhouse, very well presented and appointed, all the little extras that you don't normally get with a rental. Excellent pool that our boys loved with glorious views from the garden to enjoy whilst relaxing.

The owner Clio could not be more welcoming - her English is excellent and she was always on hand to help and recommend places to visit or restaurants to eat. Our boys loved Mr Luisa the rabbit and Frappe.

Ideally situated to visit Lucca - well worth a day - take a bike around the old town in the day and visit at night for a meal in the square circle.

Pisa is about an hour away and certainly worth a trip, to see the tower is quite a wow moment but worth booking in advance.

Quite sad to leave but most certainly we would visit La Mi Nonna again.

Great Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a great week at La Mi Nonna, lovely rustic charm in this villa, the children loved the pool and fell in love with new puppy "Frappe". Excellent base for touring, close to Lucca, only 45 mins to beach, some really good restaurants near by, (highly recommend Bar Osteria, Valgiano, brilliant view, need to book to be sure of table).

Host Clio stayed up late to welcome us (1am!) and really made us welcome, spoke good English and gave us some good touring ideas.

Many thanks, missing you and your pets already - we will hopefully return one day. Ciao Bella

Our stay at la Mia Nonna was wonderful. Clio was so helpful throughout the booking process and once we had arrived at la Mia Nonna she went above and beyond to help us with making our week in Tuscany so memorable. The only downside is that we could not stay longer. We will certainly be back to this villa in the next few years. Thank you Clio!
