Wow!We have stayed in many villa's but Casa Duetto was by far the best. Perfect in every way. The scenery and wildlife was spectacular, had 4 separate Deer sightings during our week. The villa itself was perfect and catered for everything we needed. Amazing scenery, amazing pool, amazing Villa.
We would love a return visit. Best regards from Julie, Stephen and family (UK July 2011
Jeff and Rose Lane (UK) - August 10. One of the best holidays we have ever had. The villa is absolutely stunning and location is breath taking. Everything you could possibly need is at the villa and it is very comfortable. Kids spent as much time as possible in the pool which is a great size & a lot of fun. Surrounding area is great with lots to do and close enough to Lucca for some serious shopping
Steve & Ann Marie (UK) - July 10. Your villa was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there. The pool is amazing and we did get the occasional visit from a young deer. Rod and Caroline were excellent.

The Tuscany region
Tuscany is a region on Italy's west coast, on the Tyrrhenian sea. It is one of the most popular places to visit in a country that is itself one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. There are several reasons to visit Tuscany: some of the most important ones are seeing Renaissance art in Florence, eating Tuscan food and tasting the excellent local wines, and after all this enjoying a day at the beach in Viareggio.
Bagni di Lucca
The Val di Lima, the valley of the river Lima, is a beautiful green area of northern Tuscany located some 20km from the city of Lucca.
The main town of the region is Bagni di Lucca, a historic old spa with long-standing international connections. Bagni di Lucca is one of the largest mountain communities in Italy covering over 16,000 hectares with over 75% of the area covered with deciduous trees.
The town has three main centres, La Villa, the location of most of the shops and hotels, Fornoli, the more modern and most highly-populated area, and also the location of the railway station, and between these, Ponte a Serraglio at the site of an early bridge across the River Lima.
Scattered around these three main centres, in the valley and in the hills and mountains surrounding the town are villages such as Fabbriche, Astracaccio, Lugliano, Benabbio, Brandeglio, Casabasciana, Crasciana, Casoli, Lucchio, Graniola, Monte di Villa, Montefegatesi, San Cassiano, San Gemignano Gomberto, Longoio as well as many others.
