La Piaggia, Altopascio - Lucca

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 8 people 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.

Four bedrooms. Four bathrooms, two en-suite. Guests can enjoy views over the Nievole Valley on bike rides through the nearby woods.
Approach road: last few hundred meters good unpaved road

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.

What is a pre arrival shopping service?
In some villas, it is possible to have a Pre arrival shopping service. The availability of the service is noted in the villa description. To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket.

La Piaggia est un endroit idéal pour séjourner en Toscane. La maison était parfaite pour le groupe d'amis que nous étions (4 chambres indépendantes avec toilettes et bains). Terrasse très agréable pour partager les repas, le jardin est magnifique, le coin piscine très agréable, et le tout à proximité de l'axe Pise / Florence.
Mais que dire de l'accueil de Teresa et de ses fils! Nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison! merci mille fois Teresa, ce séjour restera lontemps dans nos souvenirs.
Local attractions Visite de Florence : prenez le train depuis le village d'à côté, super pratique, pas cher, avec une arrivée en plein centre, et pas de problème de parking! Groupe de golfeurs, nous vous recommandons le parcours de Montecatini Terme : superbe, et à proximité de la Piaggia.
