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.

Mosquito Screens In Bedrooms

The defining factor of the villa comes not from the beautiful gardens or the spacious house: it is instead the incredible hospitality shown by our hosts. The family run farm went above and beyond all reasonable bounds of generosity, making all eight members of our party almost tearful to depart; we too felt like family. We experienced Tuscan fine food and hospitality during our tour and wine tasting. Diego showed us the unique antique rose garden, from which their jam is made, the fragrant herb garden, the organic vegetables as well as the grape vines and olive trees. I cannot understate how beautiful the grounds are; peaceful, idyllic, fragrant: more perfect than I possibly could have imagined. The highlight of the trip was arguably the Tuscan cookery lesson we had. We were shown how to make bruschetta, a regional soup, sweet focaccia and the pièce de résistance, fresh pasta. It was so much fun, we learned loads and have already started (trying) to recreate theses recipes at home! All the family pitched in and were so helpful, we managed to produce some of the best food I’ve eaten in a while.
As for the villa itself, it was everything we could have wanted. Incredibly spacious and supremely comfortable there was more than enough room for the eight of us. The kitchen had everything we needed and we were all able roc ok in there. As well as the house and the outdoor patio, there was a refurbished barn holding a ping pong table and other games. Just up the hill slightly from the house was the pool, which was a relief on the hot days! There was shade, sunshine, water pistols and we could’ve stayed there all week!
Ultimately, I had a fantastic holiday and cannot recommend this highly enough!
Local attractions The village of Monte Carlo is only 10-15 minutes away by car, a beautiful and historic town set high on the hill, and an excellent spot for a coffee or gelato with some fantastic views. Only slightly further afield is Lucca, a larger city perfect for a day out. It has a perfect balance of cathedrals, history, good food and plenty of shopping you shouldn’t miss out on.
