La Piaggia, Altopascio - Lucca

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.

Our Thoughts
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.

Notes
Four bedrooms. Four bathrooms, two en-suite. Guests can enjoy views over the Nievole Valley on bike rides through the nearby woods.

Pool
The oval pool has metal ladder steps into the water and is surrounded by a paved terrace and pergola furnished with sun beds and a parasol. The paved pool area gives way to a large expanse of lawn. Pool size: 5m x 10m, 1.8m deep. Open May through October, weather permitting.

Our jaws dropped when we took our first glimpse of La Piaggia. It was beautiful. The gardens were amazing, the pool (where we spent a lot of our time ) was very clean and relaxing with water toys which we all had so much fun with!
The house was traditional Italian style, beautifully furnished and decorated.
The family, Theresa, Marco and Diego....what an amazing family they are. It's very interesting to hear about the history of the house and the gardens and production of their vegetables and wine, all of which we sampled in plenitude! Theresa brought us lots of lovely Italian breads, wine and lasagne. If we needed anything at all she would go out of her way to make sure we got it. (Even bringing insect spray for my mosquito bites)
We had a very relaxing stay at La Piaggia, enjoyed every minute.Would very highly recommend a stay in this beautiful home.
Local attractions Monte Carlo is a must see. It is walking distance if you enjoy walking up hill. Once there, you get the real feel of Tuscany with the tiny streets and alleys and views that went on for miles. Lots of lovely street restaurants. Just a 15 walk in the opposite direction, you will find a great little restaurant in the village of Marginone. Very friendly staff and great food at great prices. Highly recommend. A trip to Lucca is a must do. You can walk the perimeter of the walled old town and see everything from above.
