“A little piece of Heaven on Earth”

Reviewed 3 Dec 2012

There are so many wonderful things to say about our trip here I don't know where to start. The location was fabulous - we had the tranquility of Tuscany coupled with a short trip into Lucca - possiblity one of the most picturesque cities I've ever seen. The set up of the apartments meant that within the villa we each had privacy but were together as a group often for dining or relaxing by the beautiful pool. The setting was simply stunning and the villa itself was tastefully decorated, met all our requirements (including internet access) and I would definitely recommend the local restaurants within walking distance.

Thanks for taking the time to review Villa Mori. It's luxurious and relaxing, and it is so close to Lucca that this villa offers the best of both worlds, the rural ideal of Tuscany but within walking distance of a beautiful "art" city, and Lucca is certainly one of the best.
