La Comitissa, Aquilea - Lucca

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 8 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

This light, tranquil villa for eight scores on many fronts. You are within a 20-minute drive of three national parks and have wonderful walks in the immediate vicinity. Yet, for cultural interest, Lucca is just half an hour away, and Pisa and Florence within easy reach for days out. If you feel like visiting the coast, Viareggio is another option. Should you prefer to be more relaxed and stay close to home, La Comitissa, a restored and extended hay barn in the hills just north of Lucca, is wonderfully peaceful. All its rooms, as well as the terrace and private pool, have lovely views across to the Abetone peaks.

The accommodation will suit groups of family or friends equally – rooms are generously sized, furnishings are comfortable, and the villa is well equipped. Cooks will love the kitchen, which includes a large central fireplace for grilling meat. If you’re there when nights are cooler, there’s ample space for dining indoors and a lovely fireplace in the lounge. Otherwise, al-fresco meals under the shaded section of terrace are sure to be a favourite.

Our Thoughts
There are some very nice touches here, such as the Roman-ended pool, multiple sets of double doors to the large terrace and well-equipped kitchen. But we particularly like La Comitissa’s refreshing simplicity: its good-quality furnishings are given plenty of space to breathe, with the result that what one remembers most about the villa is its lovely light and beautiful views. And with all rooms looking out across the hillsides, everyone will be happy here. The property is beautifully kept and your pool will be cleaned on a daily basis.

Notes
Four bedrooms. Three bathrooms – two en-suite. Please note that the villa’s staircase is not suitable for young children.

Pool
The rectangular pool has one Roman end with internal steps to enter the water. A paved surround with sun loungers and a parasol gives on to lawn.

Aquilea is a lovely and tiny village which is just 10 minutes from La Comitissa and is set on of the bends of the countryroad leading to the house where you will find a small but furnished grocery and a café. The riverside town of Ponte a Moriano is a 4 km drive through the countryside down a steep but quiet road decorated with elegant villas of a bygone era. Here you will find a choice of restaurants (Ristorante da Erasmo, Antica Locanda di Sesto), shops and bars. The closest supermarket is Esselunga in Marlia  (5 minutes from Ponte a Moriano and 20 minutes from the house) on one of the main roundabouts of the SS 12 (Strada Statale del Brennero).

My family had a great time at the villa this summer to celebrate my Mum's 70th. The views were spectacular and the peace and quiet was amazing, though you still had good proximity to amenities. The villa provided everything we needed for an excellent stay and we cooked all our evening meals there. We loved that there were different outdoor areas to relax in and that the pool was on another level (safer for the kids, 3 and 5). The table tennis was also a welcome distraction. We loved the delicious fig tree outside the kitchen and exploring the gardens with the children. There was plenty of space for everyone, inside and out. It is tricky the first time you arrive (the drive that is, especially in the dark!), but the owners directions are spot on and once you’ve done it a couple of times, it’s much easier. We would definitely recommend and go again in the future!
Local attractions Easy to do a day trip to Lucca and Pisa. We had a couple of great lunches in Ristorante da Pinzo in Ponte a Moriano - it doesn't look like much from the outside, but does great Tuscan food and was full of locals. Gelato from Sauro down the road was also very good.
