"Our daughter was married at this villa this summer. It was everything she dreamed of. We stayed at the villa for two weeks, with our group of 14 family members. The villa itself is magnificent. The stone structure and beautiful gardens were enjoyed by all. The wedding was held outside in one of the gardens, overlooking the mountains. I could not think of a more fitting location for this event.
The main kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of room for the many cooks in our group. We found everything we needed to prepare all of our meals. We appreciated the large refrigerator and the freezer with an ice cube maker. We enjoyed dining on the balcony for all of our meals. What a view!
Everyone enjoyed the pool. We spent a lot of time in the pool area. The pool area was very well set up, with lots of places to sit and a choice of sun or shade. This was the kids' favourite place to be. There were plenty of pool towels and even some pool toys.
The bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. We had enough separate spaces for 6 couples and 2 children. Having 5 bathrooms was a luxury. We never ran out of hot water, even when 14 people were getting ready for the wedding at the same time.
We loved the location of the villa, in the small and friendly village of Perpoli, but you must have a car. The village was a great place to do day trips from. Some of our group went to Florence for the day. The city of Lucca was easily accessible and enjoyed by all. We also enjoyed visiting the smaller towns, like Barga and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana. We enjoyed drinking some local wine and dining at local restaurants. But we all looked forward to returning to the villa and spending many hours there. Even with 14 people, we never felt crowded. There was plenty of space for everyone.
Kal, the owner was extremely helpful in assisting us with our wedding plans. He organized our wedding feast with some locals and it was truly a memorable, authentic, and delicious meal. Kal was very helpful and always responded promptly to my many questions.
When you hear "Tuscan Villa", this place fits all of the criteria. I highly recommend staying there and I plan on coming back again soon. We made beautiful memories there."
