A lovely old house with lots of history, great location for the town, kids loved playing in the river at the bottom of the garden. We did a couple of day trips out in the car, to Lucca and a national park. Bagni di Lucca has an excellent outdoor public swimming pool, nice restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance.

The host was lovely and Janet was always available and helpful. The house was nice and cool and the kitchen and bathrooms were nice. The lounge lacked sufficient comfortable seating for four adults - two comfy armchairs and two inadequate small chairs. A sofa would have been nice. We stayed with two young children and the house was not really that great for them as there were no rugs on the floors (fair enough I suppose) and the outdoor area / garden lacked any nice grass area for the kids to sit or run around on (very patchy grass not suitable for kids). I would stay again if it was just the two of us but wouldn't take the kids there again. Very convenient for town.

A beautiful villa in a stunning location. The cottage is a beautiful cool retreat from the heat outside. It was great to have the river to cool down in. A short walk into town for restaurants, gelateria and supermarkets. We visited Lucca, and Pisa, but most of the time we stayed in Bagni di Lucca and went for walks. The walk to Bagni Caldi provides some beautiful views. Sibilla communicated with us from booking to our arrival, with suggestions of places to visit and restaurants. She was actually staying there when we arrived and made us with welcome with a supply of groceries and a bottle of wine. Janet was also very helpful and available to answer any questions we had.

We spend a great time and a lovely stay at Riverside Cottage. The house was great during the hot summer time with a cool climate inside. The garden was a beautiful area for the kids. The river is very nice, we and the children (5/7/11) spend a lot of time in the water. The location is near the city center, restaurants and supermarket are nearby (5 min). For sightseeing you can reach Lucca in 30min and Pisa in 45min. As well there are a lot of beautiful small villages in the surroundings. We can recommend this property for sure!

We were welcomed warmly by Janet who was always readily available during our 5 week stay . She is wonderful. The Cottage is a delightful space spreading over 3 levels. Lots of stairs if you are using the 2 bedrooms on the top floor. The kitchen is very functional and we made lovely meals there which we were able to eat in the garden setting. We loved the garden and the history connecting the villa. Being close to the village was great for daily visits to the shops by walking. The walks up the top of the village and around it were wonderful. We did various walks over the weeks and saw stunning views. It was a great location for visiting major tourist destinations eg Lucca, Florence, Cinqe Teŕra, San Giagimano to name a few

The house was beautiful, exceeded our expectations! It was exactly what we we're looking for, a quiet retreat in the hills with the village on hand for food & restaurants. We stayed during a hot period however the house remained cool and the river was great to escape the heat. Sibilla was great on communication, check in / out was easy and she was very helpful with local recommendations! Very thoughtful host, very nice to have some basic essentials in the fridge and a bottle of wine on arrival. Kitchen was fantastic for cooking the local produce. Would recommend highly, looking forward to a return visit!

We loved this house and I am happy to endorse everything written by 'Jenny', in the previous review. Sibilla was very helpful in advance and we also met other members of the family who were staying in the adjacent house and were charming and friendly. The house is in a good location. We didn't have a car but managed to get to and from Pisa airport using public transport and there is a bus stop nearby that takes you to Lucca and elsewhere. Buses are very cheap and seemed to be reliable, but the nearest train station is about 4km away in Fornoli - Sibilla kindly arranged for us to be picked up at the station. Bagni di Lucca is beautiful - just the right size, with enough bars and restaurants to provide some choice. We had some fantastic meals there and found everybody friendly and helpful. The house was very clean and comfortable and in a lovely setting, as shown in the photos. We were there to combine writing with relaxation and it was perfect for our needs - the house has many interesting books lining the walls and there is good wifi. There was everything we needed in the kitchen and they were kind enough to leave us some wine, bread and cheese. (The supermarket is closed on Sunday pm, when we arrived.) It was very hot while we were there and it would have been good to have use of a fan. Other than that, everything was wonderful.
