“An ideal romantic hideaway”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a really beautiful house. Sitting on the border of a forest, with its own natural stream of fresh water, you get an isolated small house for yourself, equipped with anything you need for cooking and resting (including a large outdoor jacuzzi, hammock, gas grill, and a wood cooking stove. The village is quite enough to feel isolated from the world, but yet has a very nice local restaurant and easy (15 min ride) to a well stocked supermarket, pharmacy etc. As a bonus, they also supply basic wifi internet connection. We have had a perfect vacation there.

I only have two small improvement suggestions: the arriving instructions could be more elaborate, and it would be nice to add blinds to the glass part of the entrance door.

“Absolute perfection”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a fantastic place to stay. The cottage has been furnished extremely comfortably and contains everything you need for the perfect holiday. We had great fun cooking pizzas in the pizza oven outdoors. The position of the cottage makes it perfect for exploring the area, although up in the mountains it is close enough to the main road to travel about with ease. Then after a day exploring it is a real treat to come back to the perfect cottage and relax over a meal or soak in the hot tub. We loved it all!

“The most charming spot on earth!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in September 2013

Myself and my girlfriend rented this property for a week in September 2013. The weather was great - it only rained once and that was the first night!
Getting to the house took about 35 minutes or so from Pisa airport - if you have a satnav, use it as directions can be tricky and the satnav knew exactly where to go.
The owner, Trish, is an excellent host, very friendly and helpful and telephoned on the day to help out in case we were having any trouble finding the place.
When we got to the house, we met Lauren, a lovely and friendly American girl who gave us our keys, took our deposit and showed us around.
Trish even left us with a little hamper of local produce (wine, pasta, ragu, milk, coffee, etc) as a welcome gift which was so thoughtful and appreciated.
The following days, we got to experience the tranquility and pace of life the are area had to offer.
Lauren gave us directions to some local supermarkets and restaurants - our favourite of which was literally a 3 minute walk from the house - a wonderful pizzeria called Le Fonta - their house red is great too and only €5 a bottle - we brought home a few bottles of course! :)
The outdoor hot tub was great too - it had built in speakers so you can play a CD or hook up your iPod to it and just soak in the tub in the evenings.
One of my favourite days there was one were had not arranged to go anywhere so I got to sit in the garden all day in the sunshine, soaking up the surroundings atmosphere and make some homemade pizza and bake it in the outdoor pizza oven (and drink lots of awesome wine too!)
Lucca city was only about a 15/20 minute drive.
We took a train (in Lucca) to Florence one day and then another train to Viareggio the next day.
The house itself was in great condition, really charming and rustic and typically Tuscan - it's not huge so really, it's only for a couple - but for a couple, I'd say, it's the perfect size.
All facilities within the house worked great for us - we had no real issues.
With the exception of the mobile Wifi - there seemed to be an issue with it - when it worked, it was great but nearly always had to be topped up first though I think we were the first people to use it and there just might have been an account issue - hopefully it's sorted now.
All in all though, I could fault any part of this house - we went for a relaxing, romantic and rustic holiday home and that's what we got! :)
Enjoy...

“Cosy cottage at the foot of the Apuane mountains”
Reviewed 23 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The perfect romantic getaway for couples. We were warmly met by owners Trish and Simon who welcomed us to the property and gave us some lovely local goodies. The cottage, set in beatifully kept gardens with a mill-stream running by the door, is 20 minutes from the beautiful walled city of Lucca, a must-see site in itself. We used the cottage as a base for trips slightly further afield, driving down to San Gimignano and Siena. Another nearby location we loved was the hilltop village of Barga where we enjoyed a lovely pasta lunch. After a hard day's sightseeing an hour or so in the hot tub in the garden under the stars was a great way to unwind. We had great fun making our own pizza which we cooked in the pizza oven. We were most impressed by the quality of the finishing in the cottage which has been a labour of love for Trish and Simon. Lovely old beams with traditional terracotta infill in the ceiling, travertine tiles, stone staircase.... four-poster bed, powerful walk-in shower and Ipod docking station/CD player were a few of the extra touches that made our stay feel like home from home. All in all a special place and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
