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!
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.

"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.
