This property was FANTASTIC. We loved our stay here. Benedetta and family were very super nice and welcoming. They have just finished converting this beautiful duplex maisonette within the grounds of this Tuscan estate. When we arrived, Benedetta brought us a lovely tray of homemade jam, fruit and wine which was very kind.
The apartment is really well equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen as well as a fire for the winter months and a patio and BBQ for the summer. It is stylishly designed inside and has a lovely relaxing and calm feel. Everything is brand new, tastefully finished and of good quality including TVs, dishwasher and washing machine.
There is a bathroom downstairs as well as an upstairs loo and sink, so it would suit 2 couples or a family without problem.
The location couldn't be more perfect. Set down a very quiet road on a large plot of land at the foot of the hills, yet only a few minutes drive from the centre of Lucca. It was a perfect place to visit the town along with Pisa and it would be possible to do day trips into Siena and Florence.
The property exceeded our expectations in every way and we will be recommending it to friends and family without hesitation.
In terms of Lucca, we really enjoyed hiring some bikes for a few hours and seeing the city ramparts and centre that way - well recommended.
For Pisa, it is very inexpensive to catch the train from Lucca station, and you could do the same for Florence.
