“Overall excellent! Hosts are extremely welcoming. Fantastic location. Real Italy.”
A light, clean apartment with all the facilities we needed for a very comfortable stay. The hosts are extremely welcoming and happy to help. We were able to make use of the garden area and the children loved playing in the shared temporary pool. The location is superb, a quiet Italian village which we could explore and get a real feel for Italian village life. It is within some beautiful countryside and enjoys lovely views of the local hillside castle. A short drive to both Lucca and Pisa, what more could you want?
We had a lovely week's stay at Lucy, Clive and family's beautiful home. The apartment was clean and spacious with 2 comfortable sofas for sitting on inside. It was very well equipped with large fridge freezer and good cooking facilities. We did feel that this apartment is better for one couple or a close family as you have to walk through the living room/sofa bed sleeping area to get to the bathroom which could be awkward during the night!! There is a TV but that didn't work to get programmes (which didn't bother us at all) but there are plenty of DVDs. As it was quite cool most evenings we did watch some films which for us was great as we don't have much time to do that at home! The property is in a good location to visit lots of places. We loved Lucca which is a beautiful old walled town not too far away, and Pisa is a must. We had quite an experience visiting Florence! We decided to go by train but unfortunately they chose the day we travelled to go on strike! A train eventually came nearly 2 hours after we got to the station. Florence was VERY busy but we had a lovely meal in a restaurant recommended by Lucy and she also told us where to get cheaper ice cream! We are not city people and we did find Florence hectic. I think you need a bit more time than we had and a better itinerary (we didn't have one at all!!) - and no striking trains! It was our first visit to Tuscany, which we thought was lovely, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. We were glad we only had a small car as the road to Colle Farmhouse is very narrow. Lucy, Clive and family made us feel very welcome and Lucy was always around to give advice on places to visit. Just one small thing - this is a family home with 4 energetic boys, and you do hear some noise from the family above. This didn't bother us at all, but if you do want to be completely quiet then maybe this isn't the place for you, However we loved it and would willingly stay there again if we were in that area.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your honest review!
“Wonderful Tuscany experience”
A beautiful property in a unique rural setting surrounded by olive groves. Walking distance to the nearby picturesque village which has little grocery shops , bakers, butchers and a lovely cafe. There are also 2-3 lovely restaurants nearby. An ideal location central to exploring all the towns and countryside of Tuscany. Lucy and Clive were very hospitable and very helpful with maps, timetables and directions. Loved the beaches. Visited the stunning city of Lucca, The tower at Pisa and the wonders of Florence.
“Splendid Base for Experiencing Tuscany”
Beautiful apartment set in rural Tuscany with close connections to the cities of Lucca, Pisa and Florence. Public transport is somewhat limited but still manageable if you are prepared to spend the evenings in the village (there is a bar and a restaurant located close by - 5/10min walk along with a fairly large supermarket). Welcoming and supportive hosts who provided maps of the local cities and advised where the cheapest ice cream shops etc were. Me and my friend were backpacking so we found it a useful location to base ourselves for a few days and see a few places utilising buses/trains. Pisa airport is not to far away via car but I would recommend speaking to the owners about appropriate transport methods if you were not using a car (we were travelling by train into Lucca).
“Beautiful Tuscany retreat set in idyllic scenery with easy access to Lucca, Florence, Pisa and more.”
Clive and Lucy were excellent hosts giving recommendations for places to eat both locally and in Lucca, Florence and Pisa ,which we followed and were not disappointed, getting quality and an authentic Italian experience .The apartment was stunning with a beautiful terrace and back drop of the local mountains and olive groves.We shall be returning as there is just too much to see or do in one week.
“A wonderful introduction to the timeless beauty of Tuscany.”
A great holiday combining the rustic charm of Tuscany with the beauty and history of the area. The apartment was spotless and had all the facilities required. Clive and Lucy were on hand to give that extra advice only known to a local that made the trip extra special. We have already recommended the apartment to friends and look forward to returning in the near future.
“A lovely rural location in Tuscany with friendly and helpful hosts.”
This was our first time in Italy and we couldn't have chosen a better location. The countryside of Tuscany is stunning. The farmhouse was situated in a lovely village with local shops, pleasant walks and restaurants within walking distance. It was easy to go sightseeing either by bus or train or by car. Lucca, the mountain area, Piza, Florence, Vinci and the coast were easily to get to and not too far away as was Sienna. Lucy, Clive and their charming four boys made us so very welcome. They gave us lots of useful information on the local area and directions. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They lent us a D.V.D on a wet day and took us to the local church flower service. All the locals were very pleasant and helpful. The accommodation was rustic, comfotable and typically Italian. We would recommend this property and will certainly be returning.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your great review and we look forward to hosting you both again!
“Beautiful escape in rural Tuscany”
We spent a week in this self-catering accommodation. It has beautiful views of nearby Castelvecchio which is well worth a visit. It is perfectly located to visit Pisa, Florence, Lucca and surrounding towns and Cities. We conducted our visit by public transport - whilst this was achievable and the train system was well serviced, the buses to the nearby station were rather infrequent and we would recommend hiring a car to get about. This village is small, peaceful, and has the most amazing pizzaria (Pizzaria Shalomi) which I can highly recommend. Lucy and Clive were very helpful - nothing was too much trouble, and the delivery of some board games on a very rainy day was very much appreciated. As the apartment is below the family home, you cannot escape the sound of a busy family in the neighboring property so if you are looking to get away from everyone and everything, this might not suit. However, for us it was thoroughly enjoyable and we would certainly recommend it for a couple looking for a getaway.
“Such a convenient location to visit all the sights of Tuscany.”
We spent a week with Lucy, Clive and their boys in Colle di Compito and although the weather was not what we had hoped for, there was always plenty to do within the area. We visited Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Vinci and Sienna without any travel difficulties so a perfect location to see the sights of beautiful Tuscany. The apartment was lovely and had everything we needed for the week (including a selection of good books to while away a quiet hour or two) We speak virtually no Italian but Lucy and Clive made trips out tremendously easy - how to get there, where to park, maps and information booklets. Thank you.
“Delightful Tuscan Farmhouse Apartment”
Excellent choice of venue greatly enhanced by such hospitable hosts in Clive and Lucy. A great base to travel around the beautiful Tuscan countryside (car advisable) We now have a real feel of Tuscan life with visits to Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Viareggio, Volterra, San Gimignano and of course Florence We also enjoyed exploring the village of Colle with its quaint little shops and were struck by the friendliness of the locals. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday all round.
