Veneranda is a lovely rural villa which consists of two separate stone buildings situated on the side of a hill. Veneranda offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and mountains and is the perfect, private holiday retreat. The town of Pescaglia is only 4km away.
A few metres away from the villa in the pretty mature garden is the pre-fabricated chlorine cleansed swimming pool. The pool is an unusual shape and is above ground level. There are some lovely views beyond the trees and bushes that surround the gardens and pool.
At the front of the villa is a raised wooden terrace. It is furnished with a table, four chairs and a parasol. The terrace is surrounded by a wooden safety fence and offers some lovely views of the surrounding countryside beyond the nearby trees. Further down the garden is a wonderful covered loggia with a long table and bench seating.
Entry to the first villa is directly into a cosy open plan lounge, kitchen and diner. The room is full of rustic charm with its rough stone walls, tiled floor and wooden ceiling. It is furnished with a double sofa, television, an open fireplace and a dining table with two chairs. The compact kitchenette is fitted with gas hobs and a small fridge with a freezer compartment. Left of the entrance is a small bathroom with a shower.
Right of the main entrance is a flight of open wooden stairs which lead up to the mezzanine bedroom. This charming room is furnished with a double bed, a chair, a clothes rail and a chest of drawers. The single window allows light to enter the room and offers some lovely views of the rolling hills.
Entry to the second, larger villa is directly into the kitchen and diner.  This room is full of charm and has a wonderful open fireplace. It is furnished with a dining table with four chairs. The length of one wall is taken up by the kitchen area which is fitted with an oven, gas hobs, small fridge with icebox and a dishwasher.
From the kitchen and diner is a flight of wooden stairs that lead to the first floor. Midway up the stairs is an open doorway which gives access to the lounge. This room is very rustic and has quite a low ceiling. It is furnished with a double sofa and a television. A small window allows some natural light to enter.
Immediately at the top of the stairs a wooden double bed and a wardrobe. Double wooden doors open out onto a small balcony which offers access to the grounds and terrace via a paved slope. The bedroom has access to a bathroom with shower. This small room is suitable only for a single child.
A small flight of wooden steps lead up to the master bedroom. It is furnished with a double bed, double wardrobe and a wooden chair. Natural light enters through the window which offers some lovely views of the beautiful countryside.



3 double bedrooms, 1 with en-suite bathroom.



Double beds cannot be converted into twins.



Each villa has its own private entrance.



The pool is several feet above ground and children should take caution.

Stay: August 2015
Pros Super ligging in de Toscaanse heuvels. Veel privacy. Heel authentiek kader.
Cons Er ontbreekt wat huisraad om fatsoenlijk te kunnen koken: geen passende deksels op de kookpotten, geen blikopener, geen mixer, heel weinig en breekbaar bestek.
Local attractions In de nabije omgeving zijn er wel enkele leuke trattoria, maar je moet wel minstens een 20 minuutjes rijden. In Pescaglia zijn er geen. Om lekker te eten kan je best naar Lucca rijden op een 40 minuten. Een mooie en iet of wat rustige plek aan de zee hebben we niet gevonden.

Pros Le calme et l'isolement de la villa. L'amabilité, la discrétion et la disponibilité d'Ornella et de son mari.
Cons Rideau de douche avec vert de gris, mais il y avait une autre salle de bain impeccable. Un peu trop peu de vaisselle (verres etc)
Local attractions La grotta del Vento, Pise, Firenze

Pros Die Lage in der Natur und die Ruhe dort waren sehr angenehm. Die Authentizität des Hauses und die dazu passende Einrichtung haben Charme. Der einzige Nachteil ist, dass durch die Bauweise des Hauses, dessen Alter und durch die alte Holzeinrichtung der Geruch im Haus nicht ganz so angenehm ist. Ein paar Duftkerzen schaffen da aber Abhilfe. Die Vermieter des Hauses sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
Cons Wichtig für die Beschreibung im Internet ist der Hinweis auf die doch recht steile und schmale Zufahrt von der Hauptstraße zum Haus. Für tiefergelegte Autos, sehr große Autos oder Autos mit einem langen Radstand stellt diese Auffahrt ein Problem dar.
Local attractions Im Esselunga in Marlia kann man gut einkaufen. Haben es meist mit einem Ausflug verbunden, da man wegen der doch recht kurvenreichen Straße ziemlich lange unterwegs ist (ca.35 min.) Ansonsten kann man in allen etwas größeren Städten gut bummeln und frisches Obst und Gemüse auf den Märkten kaufen.
