Residenza al Principe is a wonderful Tuscan villa in the hills just outside of Lucca. It's located in a quiet area at the end of a road and surrounded by a wonderful garden of flat, well maintained lawns.
To one side of the villa is the sparkling pool with a pretty pergola. From all around the garden the views are simple and of the surrounding forest covered hills. Around the garden is a hedge which protects the property from its distant neighbours.
The villa has been restored to a high standard into a wonderfully modern Tuscan villa. Outside there is a beautiful pergola with curtains shading a large wooden table with 8 chairs. Next to this are two comfortable armchairs in the sun. There is a wood burning oven on the side of the villa, which is perfect for making pizzas.
From the terrace double glass doors enter into the spacious kitchen. To the right there is a large, sturdy wooden dining table surrounded by ten comfortable wicker, high-backed chairs. Along one wall there is the well equipped kitchen unit which includes two sets of gas hobs, dishwasher, oven and a fridge with separate freezer compartment.
Passing through a door there is a small hall, which also has access to the terrace outside and from where stairs go to the first floor. Off the hall is a lounge which is furnished with two comfortable double sofas. Off this room is a bathroom wish shower.
There is a second dining room accessed from the lounge. This is a smaller room with a fireplace in one corner. It is perfect for evening meals on cooler nights. The wooden table is surrounded by 10 cushioned, and high-back chairs. The ground floor is completed by an externally accessed laundry room.
The first floor has the four bedrooms, two on either side of the stairs. The first room is off a hall to the left of the stairs. It leads into a small area with sink, off this is the bathroom with shower and a twin bedroom done in soft beige colours. The room can be made into a double if required. In the room is a wardrobe.
The second bedroom off the hall is done in similar colours to the twin room. It is a spacious double room with a low wooden bed. In the room is a wardrobe and a mirror. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
The sleeping area to the right of the stairs is done in a pretty mauve colour. Passing through a bright hall there is a smaller hall off which there are the two bedrooms. The first is a double bedroom with a large skylight instead of windows. The room has a wardrobe and an armchair. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
The second bedroom has a low double bed and a wardrobe. The private bathroom is accessed from the small hall and has a shower.
3 double rooms cannot be made into twins.
1 twin room can be turned into a double room, should this be required please request when booking.
A normal use of electric 200kWh of power is included in the rental price, if more power is consumed during your stay the owner reserves the right to charge consumption at supply  rates, approx 0.35 Euro per kWh.

Pros Das Haus liegt sehr schön am Fuss eines Hügels mit Blick ins Grüne. Das Garten gleicht eher einem Park, sehr weitläufig und ideal für Kinder. Der nette Gärtner kommt jeden Tag und pflegt den Garten, Pool etc.
Die Aufteilung des Hauses ist ideal für 2 Familien, da sich im 1.Stock 2 getrennte Wohnungen mit je 2 Schlafzimmern und 2 Bädern sowie einem Eingangszimmer befinden. Stauraum ist jede Menge vorhanden.
Die Küche ist mit 2 Kühlschränken, 2 Gasherden und 2 Spülmaschinen ausgestattet.
Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Im Freien befindet sich ein grosser Ofen, der sich sehr gut zum Grillen und Pizza machen eignet.
Cons Die Ausstattung in der Küche bzgl. Geschirr ist gut, jedoch etwas zusammen gewürfelt und nicht auf 8 oder gar 10 Personen ausgerichtet (Kaffeelöffel, Tassen...) Die Beleuchtung auf der Terrasse abends ist sehr grell, kann man aber mit Kerzen wunderbar ausgleichen.
Local attractions Luca-8 km Pisa- 20km Forte dei Marmi -30km Es gibt 2 Restaurants auf dem angrenzenden Hügel mit Aussicht und diverse Lokale in der Nähe.

Pros Our group particularly enjoyed the villa grounds, which were extremely spacious and well set out for a group of 6/8. Lots of recreation / sports equipment was made available for our use.

The location is great. The nearest shop / cafe is probably a 2 km walk, but there are plenty of supermarkets within easy driving distance.

The villa was very clean and well maintained.

The minimalist decoration of the villa was very well received - the villa had none of the clutter that others appeared to have.
Cons Some finer details were missing - some beds did not have any bedside lamps, others only had one. As the villas is, I presume, appealing to people who would usually stay in 4/5 star hotels, these small details are important. The kitchen did not have any space on which to prepare food (we used the large dining table that is situated in the kitchen). Wifi was not avaialble on the first floor.
Local attractions Lucca is a gorgeous town, we would thoroughly recommend that everyone who spends time at the villa should visit. We ate at the property each evening - the outside pizza oven / grill was excellent.
