Well Equipped And Welcoming Villa
By Margaret on 19-Oct-2017
The property was well presented and very clean. There was a welcom pack on arrival which was a lovely touch and we used it during the stay. The kitchen was small (compared to the rest of the house)but adequate. Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worst so we were not able to make use of the super swimming pool, although we did manage a few hours sunbathing. We had an issue with the internet but a rep came round the next morning and sorted it. Instructions on how to get to the villa were good. We had stYed nearby previously and it was great to explore such a lovely area again.
Best Villa Ever
By Kenny B. on 16-Dec-2016
This was the best villa we have ever stayed in! The pool was brilliant, the garden had fantastic views with a sunset to die for. The house was really big and comfortable and accommodated our group of 9 easily. Every night we sat outside to eat or went to one of the 2 restaurants in the village which were really good value. I loved sitting around in the village having a beer or glass of chianti, and morning coffee was a pleasure. Everyone is really friendly. The area is really beautiful and I would recommend going on one of the outdoor activities which Friends of Tuscany can arrange for you. Some of us went on the canyoning excursion, which lasted all afternoon, where with provided helmet and wetsuit you jump into fabulous pools of fresh cool water. At the end the whole group sat down for a full Tuscan meal together. I can honestly say that it is one of the best things I have ever done, highly recommended. I hope we will return next year.

The Property Was Excellent.
By Stephen W. on 18-Aug-2016
All the bedrooms were of a nice size and the pool was a good size and clean. There were good facilities round the pool including sunbeds for everyone and sunshades. The owner, Corrado, was a really nice guy who came to see us on arrival and spoke to us in good English and gave us some good advice on local events such as a free night of opera in Castiglione and other events such as the medieval festival. He delivered fresh sheets on our middle Saturday and dealt well with any problems we had. He was very friendly and helpful and his friendship made our stay enjoyable. The villa is nicely located for a short walk into town and gives great accessibility for Lucca, Florence and Pisa and the beautiful beach town of Viareggio that is only one hour 20 minutes away. An excellent villa with good facilities and a really nice owner.
