This place is pretty awesome. Now I have to point out this is a working family farm and there are some farm interactions because of that. I guess you either love it or hate it because of that. We loved it. Elisa is a great host and will meet all of your needs. Pool is nice and the showers are amazing! Furniture was comfy and the beds were nice. For us it actually became more relaxing as we drove up to the house each day. There are two very good restaurants within a mile of the home. Pescia is close enough to meet any need you may have (gelato, duh!) It's a very casual low key place. If you are looking for "luxury" you should probably stay in one of the bigger cities. If you want to experience the local life stay here. It is quiet, amazing views, it is "Tuscany".
Some places are worth the effort it takes to get there. This is true of Vitiana and this lovely house. Owner Laura is very responsive and friendly, answered all my questions promptly, and was there to greet us with fresh bread, wine, and other goodies, just in case we had not realized how remote the quaint village is. Her directions (that you'll receive upon confirmation) are very thorough and easy to follow, although the village and house itself are well off the tourist track. A big plus, but something to understand in your travels there. The house is spacious and beautiful and has all that you could want for a restful country stay. The neighbors are friendly, despite our lack of language skills, and on our arrival day, two of the neighborhood dogs literally led us around the village to show us around--charming! We did not need a grocery store, as we had supplied ourselves before arrival, but there is nothing commercial in this village, except the bar, which we did not visit. There are stores on the quick (but through the "bottleneck") drive to neighboring Fornali, and Lucca is less than 45 minutes away for more shopping if you need it. Lovely space, thanks for a great few days.
