From start to finish we loved every moment. We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children, both our girls aged 11/15 had no complaints at all about the villa. We would usually expect to hear ‘I am bored dad/mum’ not a word from them :). The food was lovely, it’s simple and just great. We loved the pasta and meat/vegetarian dishes on offer as well as the deserts. The pool, it was clean, had lots of seating, amazing views and it wasn’t too busy which is what we liked the most. There were guests around but they were all really friendly and nice, talkative and just overall good :) Marco who owns the place, great chap, very helpful, his staff also really nice and helpful. I can’t stress enough how relaxing it is to be here. You really do unplug here, you recharge the batteries :) Food wise Breakfast is 0830 - 0930 or later if you want :) Lunch 1300 - 1400 - lite selections or pasta if the kids want that, what kid doesn’t want pasta ? :). There are options the staff can offer. My kids are fussy eaters, no issue here :). Dinner 2030 - 2230 - pasta dishes, with or without meat, deserts, ice creams etc. All fresh made and simply delicious! Drinks wise, you have a bar here, usual spirits, Prosecco, champagne, wines, soft drinks you name it! :) Rooms wise, we had a lovely spacious set of 2 rooms on the ground floor. We had our own terrace, our own back access to the shared pool. The rooms are clean, and very spacious. Now this is a Villa Hotel, so it’s not a full on hotel with speedy service. Marco and his staff will do their best to assist you. This is actually much better than the hotel service feel you would typically get as it’s much more personal and just overall better ! :) Travel wise, you can order a taxi, it takes about 20 mins to arrive at the villa from Lucca. I would recommend you hire a car if possible, otherwise you can just go to Lucca, and or travel to Pisa by local train from Lucca station. Trains are cheap as they are part subsidised I was told. But overall I would highly recommend this as a place to relax, get your batteries recharged. We will definitely be considering coming back !
