“Idyllic Italian Retreat!”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2012

As the plane door opened in Pisa my little girl (who's ears were blocked from the flight) shouted back at me "Look Mom it's Summertime!", and it was. We were so lucky to leave Rainy Ireland behind in June and spend 3 wonderful weeks in Tuscany. Villa Rossa (or "The Red House" as my kids called it) is beautiful. The house itself has everything you could wish for, simple things like loads of glasses, cutlery, kitchen equipment made it a home from home. The house itself is spotless. Joanna explained everything in great detail and even took the time to show us around the village which was much appreciated as we got our bearings straight away. Our children are 6 and 4, the house was perfect for them with a very safe, gated pool and lots of toys. My Parents and Uncle joined us for 12 days during our stay and the house is so well proportioned that we all had our own space. We enjoyed using the BBQ and Pizza Oven having some lovely family nights eating 'Al Fresco'. Villa Rossa is a great base for travelling around the area and if you don't have a car (which we didn't for the 1st week) the buses and trains are great value and on time (most of the time!) Lucca is a beautiful walled town, we cycled quite a bit here which made the trip very memorable. Another day we jumped (literally) on a train to Florence and ended up staying the night there....my children loved the excitement of it. Horse riding, adventure centres etc were all very accessible and very child friendly. We loved everything about the holiday and could not fault Villa Rossa in any way. As we got in the taxi on the last morning a very bleary eyed little girl looked up at me and whispered "The days went too fast Mom" and they did! We were all very sad to be leaving :( but we will be back :)

Wow is all we can say to this lovely review and thank you. When we received feedback like this it makes all our hard work worth while. We are so pleased you and your family loved the property and the area. As you said in your review it is large enough for family groups to have their own space, and yet retain that home from home feel. The location makes it ideal for visiting Florence and Lucca and the transport links are good to most areas. We were sad to see you go and please tell your little girl the red house would love to welcome her back again! Take care all of you hope to see you again in the future. Until then Ciao for now. Joanna, Antonio and Massimiliano

“A memorable holiday”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

Bagni is a wonderfully unspoilt Tuscan market town set in lovely countryside. Villa Rossa is spacious and comfortable and sits on a hill overlooking the town surrounded by great views. Jo and Antonio were fantastically helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay. They also accompanied us on the wine tasting and monks and monasteries trips which were both really memorable and their knowledge of the locality and history was invaluable. Bagni offered everything we wanted with a really varied range of restaurants and bars (reasonably priced), buses and trains, a superb open air swimming complex, a good choice of supermarkets and shops, all complemented by brilliant weather.

Thank you for your review it was a joy to have you and your family stay with us. We are so pleased you loved our day trips. These we offer to clients as an added option. The villa itself is in a lovely position close to transport links so, if like yourselves people don't wish to hire a car, getting around is easy. As you you found out when your daughter headed up to Venice for a couple of days and you enjoyed nearby Lucca and Florence. It was a joy meeting you all keep in touch. kind regards Joanna and Antonio

“bella villa rosa”

Reviewed 10 May 2012

A superb Villa rental. It was like home from home, we had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday and more. The weather was cool some days however, the central heating and log fire was a real plus. We travelled to Florence and had a day out in Lucca, enjoyed wine tasting and horse riding. The owners were great hosts and helped us with travel ideas and more. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting to stay in Tuscany. Great property, great location, lovely village.

Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased you loved Villa Rossa and the location. As you said you found it was ideal as a base for seeing Tuscany and you enjoyed travelling on the local transport links to Florence and Lucca. The days you took the opportunity to explore the area, with our personal walking tours around the villages and the wine tasting were also a real treat for you and your group. You loved the whole experience so much, you have already expressed an interest in coming again next year. We can't wait to see you all again soon. Until then take care all of you. kind regards.
