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

The apartment was a beautifully restored farmhouse set within the wonderful rural countryside of tuscany. We woke up to spectacular views overlooking olive groves and vineyards with a magnificent mountainous background!! The house is in a very quaint tiny mountain village with a real community spirit, where your italian neighbours will say ciao and the children play happily in the fields. The apartment is self contained and has everything needed to ensure a very comfortable stay, including a very well kept outside garden and swimming pool area. The nearest shops are a short drive away and it is close to Florence, Lucca, Pisa and the beach for day trips. We had the most wonderful time staying here and would love to come back at some point. Would definitely recommend it to others wanting a real italian experience!!!
We are so pleased you loved our rental property. The location is stunning, tranquil and yet being on the edge of the village it is also close to bars, shop, supermarkets etc. As a base for sightseeing in Tuscany as you found out it is perfect.
