Further details outdoors

A private road leads to the house with ample parking space outside the gates and garage.

The 8' x 14' pool is surrounded by terracotta tiles, has walk in steps and a deep end. There is a lovely pergola at the far end of the garden with barbecue and long table which seats up to 16 people.

Further details

Central heating and air-conditioning are charged extra according to consumption. Individual Meters are fitted to each of the four Air-conditioning units and will be charged at the rate of one euro per unit used per Air-con unit. You will be shown the units upon arrival.

The property is divided up by the main house and two further annexes all linked internally. The individual annexes sleep 3 persons, 5 persons with 6 in the main house.

This is a property with extensive gardens and grass areas which need maintaining, there are 2 gardeners and 1 pool maintenance officer and 1 cleaners 2-3 times a week (once only for the mid week towel change, every Wednesday) and there are two cleans per week. one done extensively on each Saturday as guests leave, to get the house ready for the next guests, and another clean done mid week, which is attempted to be as least intrusive as possible.

The owners live on the land next to the house and use the utility/washing room facilities within the lower ground floor of the home for themselves and store the cleaning equipment etc as they manage and look after the surrounding environment pool, chickens, animals and oversea the cleaning maids who come regularly each week.

The owners/housekeepers do have pets and animals as this is a country farmhouse setting with currently cats, dogs, geese and chickens (the chickens and geese are being kept in a coop) which provide fresh eggs.

The owners welcome your own pets as long as it is requested in advance.

However please be aware that if you suffer from any pet allergies of any sort you should let us know before booking as we cannot be held responsible for potential allergic reactions or any other allergy for that matter.

The Tuscany region

The ideal destination for families friends or couples. Wonderful weather combined with stunning surroundings make for the ideal holiday getaway! With so much to see and do in the area you will never get bored!

Capannori

The small village of Colognora di Compito is set in the area south of Lucca know as The Compitese, a beautiful and hilly area with gentle sloping pine clad hills overlooking olive groves and vineyards.

There is a restaurant and bar within walking distance, and the nearest supermarket is in San Leonardo in Treponzio approximately 3 kilometres away where you will also find a bank and pharmacist.

Lucca is only about 8 kms and there are riding stables and tennis courts nearby. Village festivals take place in the spring and summer, including the annual Camelia show in early spring which takes place in the antique villas at Pieve di Compito nearby. The nearby motorway exit makes it an ideal base for touring the rest of Tuscany and farther afield by car.

"Great house and location - poor customer service"

Positives - Beautiful location and the house had a lot of charm and character. There is a restaurant about 15 mins walk away which is excellent - good prices, great food and very welcoming for childre… More

I am sorry your experience was less than perfect and Ideal. I have been down to see the owners directly myself to review how the house is run. I had previously been aware that every client is offered the optional use for the newly installed air-con units which are charged at a very low rate, so really there is no need for additional fans. However I cannot excuse the behaviour of the owner and feel I must apologise for this impulsive act and I will get to the bottom of it and look at how communication can be improved. With regard to your comments on the owners carrying out daily tasks, this is a property with extensive gardens and grass areas which need maintaining, there are 2 gardeners and 1 pool maintenance officer and 1 cleaners 2-3 times a week (once only for the mid week towel change, which I believe the lady of the house does every Wednesday) and there are two cleans per week. one done extensively on each Saturday as guests leave, to get the house ready for the next guests, and another clean done mid week, which is attempted to be as least intrusive as possible, so the owner sometimes helps to speed up the process. Also there live animals which need tending after (5 cats, 2 dogs, 2 geese and 8 chickens (at last count!), the fruit trees and olive trees need tending to. The property is classified as a live Farm house(Agri-turismo) dwelling. It does state in the advert that the owners live on a camp site next to the home for these reasons. nonetheless I will see what can be improved. thank you kindly for your feedback as we will aim to improve our standards.

"Peaceful location, lovely pool, great house..!"

We stayed for one week, driving as a family of four from the UK and picking up four extended family from Pisa airport. The house layout (with its additional two separate apartments) was ideal for our group size and make-up. Our ‘Google maps’ research prior to departure enabled us to find and drive up the private road with confidence on arrival – I’d recommend doing that as the house really is nicely off the main thoroughfare. Once there though parking is secure and convenient. Normally the thought of ‘close at hand’ owners is a turn off when selecting a rental villa for our family holiday, but having ignored our own rules this time we found it to be enriching rather than intrusive experience in this case. Mr & Mrs Martinucci are a friendly couple and very accommodating, helpful and always accessible if needed. It was our first time in the region (but we’ll be back having now been once) and we were only able to visit a fraction of what’s to be seen and done within reasonable striking distance. There would have been more than enough attractions had we been there for two weeks, not just one. Mostly we were content to sit around pool or at the large outdoor table and enjoy meal times as a family group. The large pool was fantastic with space for all AND a multitude of inflatable toys. Overall we can greatly recommend the property and it worked well for our party of a family of four and two sets of Grandparents.

Thank you for visiting us this year, we hope to accomodate you and your family and maybe lots of your friends in the near future. Best Wishes.
