"lovely property with fabulous mountain views"

We stayed at this property for a week in September. Set within a mountain landscape the views from the property were beautiful, the property itself was very clean and well maintained and the kitchen v… More

Thank you for your review, It was lovely meeting you both and we are so glad you loved the property. The views are really stunning all around the property and its location as you mentioned means that you can see many of the famous areas of Tuscany with ease. The train to Florence takes out the stress of driving and finding parking and we tend to recommend this as an option to our guests coming in peak season especially. The other cities and places such as the Cinque Terre are easy to visit by car of public transport too. Thanks again for the review. regards Joanna

A fantastic place in a little charming Tuscan village called Guzzano, a 15 minutes drive up the mountain from Bagni di Lucca. With BBQ, a garden with fantastic view over a Tuscan valley and a small p… More

"Very cosy farmhouse in beautiful location"

Il Fienile was gorgeous - very cosy, comfortable and modern, and in a wonderful location, just above the town, surrounded by olive trees and great panoramic views of the hills. A very special spot, id… More

Thank you for your review. Spring is a wonderful time of year to enjoy Tuscany and our property, as it is set in such lovely surroundings, with meadows filled with spring flowers and the fruit trees bursting with blossoms. The usual tourist attractions are easy to get around without the usual peak season tourist crush! Our gazebo's dripping with wisteria and rose blossoms offer great shade from the spring sunshine whilst the log fire gives extra warmth if needed in the evenings. Perfect as you found to sit around and relax with a glass of Chianti. Thanks for your kind review. Take care Joanna

"Amazing place to stay"

We are not long back from Il Fienile and what a brilliant week we had. It is set in the most amazing hillside in a lovely little village where the residents are friendly and welcoming. Joanna, Antonio are fantastic and strike a great balance between being available for advice and making you feel that you are alone on the hilltop. We travelled with our 3 year old and this accommodation was brilliant for allowing us to have a few day trips to Florence and Pisa and half day trips to Lucca and Barga and always allowed enough time to enjoy the pool. Fantastic place to base yourself for the northern part of Tuscany especially if what you are after is enjoying the Tuscan countryside. The accommodation is lovely with brilliant views.

Thank you so much for your review, it was a joy having you stay at our property. As you said in your review Il Fienile is a great holiday rental as staying here allows you to strike the balance between sightseeing and complete relaxation. Clients like yourselves seem to like the fact they can see the famous Tuscan sights such as the leaning tower of Pisa, Lucca and Florence. Coming back in the evening they can then relax in the gardens and enjoy the views, along with the relaxing country way of life. Thanks again and take care Joanna and family

"Fantastic location, wonderful hosts"

We were so pleased to have chosen Il Fienile for our first experience of the Tuscan hills - the house is located in a stunning spot and we loved our first glimpse of it across the valley when we drove into Guzzano. Antonio and Joanna were very welcoming and provided an immaculate and well equipped property as well as helpful local knowledge. Our children (12 and 9) loved the pool and terrace and feeding the geese! We are very keen to return and hope that the boys will get together next time! Thank you for a fantastic stay.

Hello a big thank you for your review. We are always so pleased when guests enjoy our farm rental and its surroundings as much as we do. The rental has been developed with no expense spared to create a real home from home feel and the pool is always a real plus especially with family groups like yourselves. The area is great for children and the animals on the farm always seem to be a source of pleasure for people staying. Please tell the boys both the geese and Massimo will still be here for next time, we might even have a peacock or too to add to the existing stock of birds!!!. We would love to see you all again until then take care. Kind regards Joanna and family

"So glad we chose this property...."

...it was perfect. The views from the farmhouse windows and sun terrace are amazing. The property is remote and quiet for relaxing but within easy travelling distance of Pisa, Florence, Lucca and many… More

Ah guys we are so glad you loved staying here and thank you for review. The locals are as you found so friendly here in our village. If you want to be, you can be part of a real Italian community whilst staying here and the villagers really look after you. Often on a walk around the village you will often come back with gifts such as eggs, fruits from their trees and vegetables from their gardens, great free organic food!!! The location is away from it all and yet as you found close enough to be able to see the usual tourist attractions such as Pisa, Florence and the Cinque Terre. It was lovely having you all, keep in touch and a big woof from Franz who is missing you still!! regards Jo, Antonio and Massimiliano x

"A rustic mountain idyll"

This remote and beautiful property has the sort of mountain views you dream about. It is essentially an annex of Jo and Antonio's home with 2 private terraces and a swimming pool. It is arranged on one floor and being set into the hillside is elevated at the back with its own entrance to the front. It is comfortable, tastefully decorated and well equipped. The family strike a happy balance between respecting your privacy while at the same time being helpful and welcoming. If the concept of Agrotourismo is new to you it all happens here. This industrious couple are working the land in new and innovative ways to reinvigorate the local economy and can only be congratulated for their enterprise. A stay at Il Fienile offers the best of rural Italy and at the same time easy access to Florence, Pisa and Lucca if you ever want leave this rustic idyll.

Thank you for your kind review and your kind words. We are so glad you liked your stay with us here on the farm at Il Fienile, you were a lovely couple and a joy to have as our guests on the farm. As you said in your review the property is remote enough for those like yourselves who want peace and tranquillity to relax in during the day and evening. Yet it is close to all the major Tuscan tourist attractions such as Lucca, Cinque Terre, Pisa and Florence all of these are only a short drive away. We hope you enjoy cooking with your Saffron from our farm and please keep in touch both of you. kind regards Joanna and the family

"Amazing Tuscany"

The villa in Bagni di Lucca exceeded my expectations! I felt welcomed the moment I got there and everyday since. I couldn't help but focus on the mountainous landscape surrounding the villa. The weeks spent in this Tuscan villa were the most peaceful and relaxing. Many of the days were used by the pool laying out in the sun enjoying the stunning views. The location of Bagni di Lucca is fantastic with convenient trips to nearby towns of Lucca, Pisa, Florence, etc. When you stay here, you can tell Jo and Antonio take pride in having people stay in their villa. I would gladly recommend staying in this area of Tuscany. Hope to be back soon! Thanks Jo and Antonio for a wonderful stay!

Thank you for your kind review. We often get clients amazed by the properties location. The pictures of the surrounding views simply do not do it justice. The property is as you found perfectly located for those wanting to visit Florence, Pisa and Lucca as well as those wanting to relax and enjoy the Tuscan lifestyle truly a "Bella Vita". We are looking forward to seeing you again next year all of you. Until then take care Joanna
