"We have just returned home from Italy. We are a family of 8, 7 adults and 1 baby. This villa and the people associated with it, is the epitome of a beautiful, relaxing vacation. The pictures are beautiful, but when you are there, it is breathtaking.
From the moment you are in communication with Marco regarding the booking of this villa, you know you are in capable hands. Everything will go smoothly, because Marco and Michela ( manager) will ensure that it will. I can not say enough kind things regarding Michela. She is sweet, personable and helpful. She goes above and beyond in role as a manager of this villa.
And there is Elisabetta and her daughter Andrea. Elisabetta is the housekeeper and chef if you desire to have a Tuscan meal cooked for you and served on the veranda by sweet Andrea. And you should, because having a meal cooked by Elisabetta is equivalent to icing on your favourite cake. Elisabetta is passionate about everything she does. She works very hard in maintaining the cleaniness of the villa. We enjoyed our many conversations with Elisabetta while she cleaned.
Then there is the villa with the panoramic view that is just breathtaking!! You, literally, cannot take your eyes from the view!! You are perched on a mountain overlooking Lucca and Pisa.
The villa is a 11th century stone home with modern conveniences. Beautiful. Spacious. Clean. The verandas with grapevines canopying above you, as you read, eat or drink reminds you that you are in a very special place. The cool refreshing pool. Trails behind the villa and the road down to the ancient church. Olive groves and vineyards surround the villa and will excite the explorer in you. You will not be bored!!
In fact, it will be hard to leave this idyllic spot.
Our family has travelled extensively, but we all agree this is the one we hope to return to.
Thank you Marco, Michela, Elisabetta and Andrea."
