The Pucetti family are truly wonderful hosts! Friendly, helpful and great fun and happy to leave us alone if required.
The house is perfect for a relaxing holiday.
The view from the patio is sublime and as the light changes the detail evolves, mornings and evenings are particularly delightful!
Lovely place in the mountains, quiet and calm. The city and beach of Lucca are a bit far from the house, the shops are located 11 km away. The house owner lives next to the house, helping in everything that is needed.
Stunning location, views and villa
We stayed for 9 nights in June, myself, my wife and 2 young children. I cannot emphasise how beautiful first of all Tuscany is but the villa, gardens and the views at casale lavinia are just second to none. It is just far enough away from everything to feel like you are away from it all, but in reach of everything.
The main town close by is lucca and out of all of the town's we visited (pisa, Florence, viareggio etc) this was by far our favourite and only a 20 minute drive. A local supermarket does amazing bread, and a great deli for all fresh food you will enjoy. The villa has all sorts of herbs growing and fresh lemons, so if you like I did enjoy cooking you will not be disappointed! They also produce wine from their own vines, and also make olive oil
Lastly the hosts, Edo, Maurizio and ilene and just lovely people, you are very much left alone with your privacy to get on with your vacation but I enjoyed their friendly chats when we did bump into them. Thanks so much guys
100 percent would recommend the villa, if you want a slice of Tuscan life for some days. I and my family will remember this holiday forever.
Ps - watch the fireflies at night when it gets dark. Amazing spectacle along with soaring birds of prey and the odd bright green lizard running around
Such a wonderful position , views to die for. Everything was perfect thank you and sorry for delay with the review
Super property in beautiful setting
Our family of four had a warm welcome from Edu and family despite our late arrival. The property has three good sized bedrooms which are traditionally furnished. The two shower rooms are modern and very clean and the kitchen is well equipped. The reception room is open-plan into the kitchen and overall this space is good but probably not big enough for more than four if you were stuck inside due to bad weather. Outside there is a covered area with a large table and chairs where up to eight could eat and drink comfortably. The outside areas are great; well-maintained with enough seating and sun loungers. The pool is superb; a good size and, again, well-maintained with the owners cleaning and checking the water every evening.
The views of the surrounding hills from the property are great and you can see all the way to Pisa on a clear day.
We loved the location in the hills, for the views and for the general peacefulness. However, due to the road up to the property (quite narrow in places and twisty) it generally takes up to 20 minutes to the nearest small shop and 35 minutes approx. into Lucca with its large supermarkets. Pisa is about one hour away. This was not a problem but worth bearing in mind if you run out of provisions or decide to supersize your rental car.
Edu and his family live in the property behind the rental property, but you would not know that they were there unless you needed them. We found them to be very friendly and helpful and would highly recommend their property.
Very picturesque.very clean and just how it looks in the pictures had a relaxing and enjoyable break with my family.Only down side is the journey up to the property and time it takes to get into Lucca,which you need a good twenty minutes to get to even if it is only 10km.However once you are at the property it is worth the journey.Very friendly owners.
Loved the evenings eating outside on the patio.Thankyou would definitely visit again
