We stayed for 2 weeks and had an amazing time. The property was even more lovely than the pictures can show. Spacious garden with a fabulous pool and the villa was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean.
Can't rave enough about it.
The location is remote and we found we drove everywhere but that wasn't an issue for us and the scenery is stunning.
Some comments mention the steep driveway and it is steep but what you get at the top is worth it.
A True Labour of Love
Many times we have rented accommodation that ticks boxes for what you need in a holiday let. But we have never felt like we have been invited to stay in a place that feels like you have come home in the first 5 minutes. This house is a True Labour of Love. If you want a restful retreat away from a world you want to leave behind for a while, a place that’s simply paradise in every direction you look, a place that’s true to its location and yet modern and very comfortable, then you have found it. Sitting in the shaded terrace with a gentle breeze from the surrounding hills wafting through, your eyes will stare at paradise in every direction!
Simply beautiful. A real feeling of peace. Sure the road to the place is challenging and sometimes you feel you would like to have more amenities close by, but then that’s one reason why you feel like it’s a true escape.
Great supermarkets in Pescia for all you needs - and if you have never been, Lucca is an easy drive from Pescia. Lovely Tuscan walled city.
A great week in a very special place!
Stunning in the hills above Pescia
Fabulous views of hillside villages from this beautifully renovated villa. Traditional and comfortable furnishings and fully equipped kitchen. The professionally landscaped pool and gardens provide privacy and shade. This was by far the nicest rental we have ever stayed in, and the hairy access road was worth it!
Check out Da Sandrino, and Da Carla in Sorana, as well as Mereno bistro in Vellano. All excellent and friendly restaurants serving local specialities. Train to Florence from Pescia is just over one hour and costs 12 Euros each way. Book entry tickets to the Accademia and Uffizi via TripAdvisor to avoid lines.
A Wonderful 5* Stay Week Here
On arrival when we were greeted very warmly by Valter, Antonella and Ingrid and made to feel so welcome. The house is truly amazing, it does not feel in any way like a rental property and if it was a hotel it would be 5*. All the furniture and fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality and comfort, the sofa is cream/white that tells you how unlike a rental property this is! It feels as if we were welcomed into their own home, albeit a luxury one! The villa and the extensive garden/grounds were spotlessly clean and maintained to the highest standard. You could never tire of looking at the view from the villa. This was a perfect week in a perfect property, thank you for everything. Grazie Mille
A fantastic villa,in a beautiful secluded location.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Villa. It is beautifully appointed, and ideal for 6 or 7 people. The reception areas, both inside and out work well. The kitchen and major bathroom are beautifully appointed. The top floor ensuite bathroom is very small but works effectively. The gardens and pool are fantastic as are the views. The drive up to the villa is a little challenging, but that is more in the 'mind' that in reality. Overall we had a fantastic holiday.
This home is far beyond the pictures... it is incredible! We were a group of 5 and there was more than ample space throughout, easily would accommodate 8. The pool is massive and the views are stunning. Lot's of outdoor seating areas throughout the property. The kitchen is a dream and very well equipped. We ate every single meal al fresco on the covered terrace. I think I will be booking this place again for next summer, this time for 2 weeks!

Our holiday house in Tuscany is located in the valley of 'La Svizzera Pesciatina' , a hilly area of particular charm, green and richly forested. 'La Svizzera Pesciatina' is located above Pescia, between Lucca and Florence, at a short distance to the famous historical towns of Tuscany but at the same time enclosed into the unspoilt natural landscape.
Scattered throughout 'La Svizzera Pesciatina' are 10 medieval villages: Pietrabuona, Vellano, Medicina, Aramo, Fibbialla, Sorana, San Quirico, Castelvecchio, Stiappa and Pontito. They are made in pietra serena stone which was of great importance during the Middle Ages and are all well preserved . This is a place were time stands still with a peacefull atmosphere.
The villages can be reached by old walking paths or local roads, and the panoramic views are amazing from here. Some villages have their own typical restaurant that welcomes tourists and makes them feel at home.
