La Piaggia, Altopascio - Lucca and Viareggio

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

This large typically Tuscan villa, surrounded by fragrant pine trees and olive groves in the countryside between Lucca and Pistoia, has all the ingredients for a deeply relaxing family holiday. The cheerful exterior, painted sunshine-yellow and dressed with green shutters, hints at warm interiors with characterful open beams and brickwork, sleeping eight in four bedrooms.

The huge, well-maintained gardens have plenty of spaces for socialising or serenity – there’s a large covered terrace furnished with a table and chairs so guests can enjoy al fresco feasts rustled up on the rustic terracotta barbecue. A ping-pong table is also available and the large private pool is set in a generous area of its own surrounded by olive trees, brightly coloured potted plants and shrubs. The nearest village, Marginone is within easy reach, with a grocery shop, butcher, baker and restaurants.

This is very much a family home-from-home with plenty of living space to spread out and relax in. The well-tended gardens have a generous expanse of soft lawn – perfect for little ones to run around on. Guests find it hard to leave such a comfortable base but Lucca, Florence and Pisa area well-placed for day trips and families with younger children can continue the outside experience with a visit to the nearby Pinocchio Park in Collodi or the more educational Leonardo da Vinci museum in Vinci.

Wspaniały pobyt. Była to nasza pierwsza wizyta w Toskanii i niemal dokładnie tak ją sobie wyobrażaliśmy. Stylowy dom, stylowe pokoje, piękna zastawa stołowa. Pościel, ręczniki, ręczniki basenowe pod dostatkiem. Wokół winnice, oliwne gaje. Na pierwszym miejscu zaś gościnność gospodarzy. Przyjechaliśmy wcześniej niż zaplanowano, dom był jeszcze w trakcie przygotowania. Teresa (właścicielka) wynagrodziła nam ten krótki czas oczekiwania (nie z jej winy) smacznym lunchem z winem i deserem, a potem kolacją. Innego dnia zaprosiła nas na wycieczkę po farmie i kolejny obfity posiłek z winem w prowadzonym po sąsiedzku z naszym domem centrum degustacyjnym. Gospodarze z uśmiechem i sprawnie rozwiązywali nasze drobne problemy użytkowe i służyli cennymi radami przy planowaniu wycieczek czy wizyt w winnicach.
Local attractions Bardzo dobre położenie sprawia, że z La Piaggia można szybko dostać się do Florencji, Sieny, Pisy, Livorno (plaża) i innych atrakcyjnych miejscowości. Warto zrezygnować z autostrad i podróżując po lokalnych drogach podziwiać krajobrazy i odwiedzać mniejsze miasteczka, które niemal wszystkie są atrakcyjne. W ten sposób łatwo trafić na fajną restaurację, często też super położoną z widokiem, lub w otoczeniu średniowiecznych murów. Winnice w okolicy oferują zwiedzanie i degustacje. Bezpośrednio na miejscu warto skorzystać z oferty degustacji u Teresy. Po wyjściu z terenu posiadłości w odległości spaceru są elegancka restauracja i miła pizzeria (wskazana rezerwacja) i doskonały rzeźnik (sery, wino, oliwa też) gdzie można kupić świeżo przygotowane pod życzenie klienta mięso np. na grilla.
