Casa Rocchi is a fantastic villa located 10km from Lucca in a suburb area with no amenities. It has an excellent position to visit Pisa, Lucca and Florence, day trip to the beach at Viareggio are also feasible.
The property is completely fenced and has a tall hedge around the garden which protects it from view of the neighbours, and provides privacy to the garden. The crystal pool is located in the perfectly maintained garden, a few steps away from the villa.
To one side of the garden, between the villa and pool there is a small covered wellness area which has a four person Jacuzzi and a sauna. In the garden there is also a typical Italian bocce court.
Outside the villa is a covered loggia furnished with a wooden table and chairs. It has a large barbeque and wood burning pizza oven making it an ideal area to relax outdoors.
Entering the villa from the pool area is a terracotta paved terrace enclosed in glass. It is furnished with a wooden dining table and six chairs to one side, while the other has a comfortable angle wicker sofa.
Inside is a cosy lounge which has a piano on one side and to the other two double sofas around a large flat screen TV. The floor is paved with the original terracotta tiles and there is the traditional Tuscan villa ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. Access to the first floor is from this room.
Remaining on the ground floor and passing through an arch there is a second lounge area which has a warm wooden floor. It is furnished with a well stuffed triple sofa and matching armchair. Off to one side is a guest toilet.
An arch the other side of the main lounge leads into the dining area and onto the kitchen. The dining room has an extendible wooden table. There is also a wooden sideboard and an armchair.
The modern, stainless steel and wood kitchen is divided from the dining area by a thin partitioning wall. It's a narrow room but with plenty of work space and is very well equipped. The cooker with gas hobs and oven is at the far end. There is also a dishwasher and a large fridge with separate freezer compartment. The window above the sink looks out onto the terrace while a door provides access to the outside eating area.
Going upstairs there is a small hall paved in wood. Here is a writing desk with chair, perfect to catch up on emails. In the hall is a chest of drawers while to one side is a small sitting area with book case, ideal to relax with a book.
Directly in front of the stairs is an arch leading into a bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The arch leads into a small corridor, to one side is the bathroom with shower while to the other is the bedroom. It is a lovely and bright room with a light coloured wooden floor and a large double bed. To one side is a double door wooden wardrobe.
At the far end of the upstairs hall is the master bedroom. It has a huge bathroom with both a shower and a tub with hand held shower. The beautiful bedroom has a dark wooden floor which matches the chest of drawers. There is a large double bed. The wardrobe is in the little hall between the bedroom and bathroom.
The third bedroom with en-suite bathroom and shower has a double bed, chest of drawers and a light coloured wardrobe. It also has a warm wooden floor. Like the other two bedrooms the window looks out towards the back of the property, over the pool area.
There are no views due to the hedge around the villa and its position on the flat valley floor.

Pros Lovely swimming pool and beautifully kept gardens
Air conditioning much appreciated
3 good bathrooms, one with a bath
Good supply of crockery, glasses etc
Good TV reception with Sky
Good beds
Cons Rather dark kitchen with leaking fridge and ? leaking dishwasher Directions to property could have been much better Did not like participating in the black economy by being asked to pay in cash for cleaning and/or advertised facilities. I have never experienced this before with villa rental. Bitten by mosquitos when first arrived at 4.00pm. There were anti-mosquito plugs found in cupboards and it would have been very helpful if these had been plugged in with tablets for our arrival No written info about appliances/ very little info on area
Local attractions Proximity of Lucca with restaurants/attractions Good local restaurant at cross-roads of Via Europa (No info on this in villa)

Pros La maison est très jolie et le terrain magnifique. Nous avons apprécié les trois chambres avec salles de bain très confortables, la cuisine bien garnie, la piscine et le mobilier extérieur.
Cons Le système Internet ne fonctionnait que très difficilement pour de courtes périodes de temps. Il y avait beaucoup de moustiques la nuit probablement en lien avec les pluies que nous avons eues.
Local attractions Le restaurant Butterfly, à Capannori, qui nous va été recommandé par la personne qui nous a accueillis, nous a vraiment plu. L'accueil, le décor, la bouffe et le service étaient fantastiques. Nous avons beaucoup aimé nos visites à Lucca et aussi Cinque Terre.

Pros uns hat es sehr gut in der Casa Ricchi gefallen, die Zimmer waren sehr schön, der Pool und die Sauna ist toll, alles in allem sehr schön.
Cons Bei Sommerlichen Temperaturen kann man den Tisch am Grill leider nicht nutzen, da der Müllplatz unmittelbar nebenan ist. Der Bio-Müll müsste öfter entsorgt werden.
Local attractions Lucca ist eine hübsche kleine Stadt, Pisa und Florenz waren auch eine Reise wert. In Lucca gibt es sehr viele kleine Restaurants.

Pros Hosts were excellent. The house was lovely and the location, great. Everything would have been amazing, had it not been for the crippling electricity issues.
Cons One word: electricity. We chose Casa Rocchi specifically because it had a sauna, jacuzzi, and one beautiful bathroom. We couldn't use these, however, because the electricity was constantly going out (in December). The infrastructure didn't support the jacuzzi being on, as it knocked out the electricity in the house. Ditto for the sauna. And the water heater could only heat up enough water to fill up one quarter of the bathtub. So the key luxuries that Casa Rocchi advertised actually couldn't be enjoyed due to abysmal electricity. The owners recognized this, so please check with them to see if this has been addressed. If it has - I would absolutely recommend it without qualification.

We have spoken to the owner who was most apologetic for the problem with the power on this occasion. He was unaware that it was a persistent problem and explained that it was found to be an issue with the outside lighting and weather conditions causing the power to cut. He assures us the problem is resolved and there is ample capacity to serve all the amenities at the villa.

Pros Der Außenpool war das absolute Highlight. Ebenfalls betonen möchte ich die Freundlichkeit des Hausherren :-)
Cons Die 100%-ige Stille hat uns gefehlt, da das Haus nicht komplett abgelegen war. Man konnte die vorbeifahrenden Autos hören, jedoch alles im Rahmen.
