After spending a day, and night, in Lucca, we made our way down to the barn. Our journey was surprisingly pleasant and the directions provided to us by Charlie were spot on.
Our initial reaction when we pulled up at this stunning location was one of excitement. Perfectly located in the Tuscan dips with views that you wouldn't believe.
The house itself was clean and brilliantly equipped. There is a Co op supermarket no more than a 15 minute drive away, so a nip out to get some of the essentials in ( as you would expect to have to do) was easy enough.
We actually really enjoyed spending the evenings making our own tea and enjoying the tranquility of the house and it's wonderful grounds, and of course a few bottles of the local wine.
The location is also ideal for day trips. We drove out to Florence, Siena, Certaldo amongst others and found the escape from the tourists back to the house, within an hour, perfect.
There are plenty of options of you choose to eat out and the book provided at the house gives you all the top tips.
We did this trip as a couple and will definitely be returning. I would like to, in a dream world, buy this property as it is simply stunning.
We only wish we had booked this hours for longer as moving from hotel to hotel in the cities is not fun.
Charlie and the lovely owners are super people. We will see you again.
