"Villa Molendi--our home away from home"
We (2 couples) rented Villa Molendi for 4 nights, and wish we could have stayed longer. Silvia and Sergio was so helpful and friendly, and they went out of their way to assist us any way they could. You do need a vehicle, but it's very easy to find your way around.
The villa was well equipped, and we felt at home right away. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfy, the showers worked well, and everything we needed was availalble. The villa was very clean, and it was easy to keep it that way. It was nice to be able to wash our clothes; clothes line and a drying rack are available.
The fresh vegetables and their own olive oil from the farml were delicious, and there's an excellent supermarket close by (Esselunga in Pescia) for food and wine! We didn't have a chance to get to any local markets, but they are available. We enjoyed some excellent meals at the villa, and it was lovely to relax outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the view, after a long day of sightseeing.
The views from the villa were beautiful--nature and hill towns, and it was easy to get to Lucca, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Florence and where-ever we wanted to explore.
Sergio was a huge help when we had a flat tire and needed to buy a new one--he got the tire ordered for us, at the best price, and made sure we were able to get it fixed as quickly as possible.
Silvia and Sergio provide a lot of local information (places to see and things to do), and can help you find anything else that you need.
