Description

Lovingly rebuilt to high standard with the traditional teracotta tiles and chestnut beams with all modern facilities. There are 4 bedrooms, all with electric fans, 2 doubles with private en suite bathrooms, and 2 twin rooms that can also be made into doubles. The underfloor heating is perfect for low season and open fire for cosy winter months, and all bathrooms have heated towel rails. The kitchen is well-equippped for self-catering, although we can also recommend a cook!
All bath towels and pool towels are included, we also provide hairdryers in each bedroom, & we offer WIFI for personal use. The terrace is perfect for dining al fresco with stunning views of the lush countryside & valley below. There is also a fully functional pizza oven for a family fun meal! The beautiful salt water pool is in the proximity to the Farmhouse Villa, set in lovely gardens. Perfect setting for peace, solitude, relaxing and sunbathing, but close enough to the busy ancient walled city of Lucca.

“Questa Nostra Stagione”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2014

Dear friends, We spend happy time in this place! It was in October'2013. It was not the usual journey for us. We chose Villa La Pianella to relax, to get acquainted with Tuscany, to celebrate the wedding of my brother. And we were absolutely right in our choice. Sorry for my English, but I'll try to describe my memories about Villa La Pianella - the place I love: Beautiful, hospitable, distinctive, comfortable, romantic, heartwarming, pleasantly, stylish, great, fantastic, charming etc. I really recommend Villa La Pianella, if you want to feel Tuscany!
