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.

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.

T**** ist eine fantastisch und herzliche Gastgeberin. Das Haus ist toll..... sauber, gut ausgestattet, grossräumig. Tischtennisplatte und Kicker vorhanden. Der schöne Pool wurde jeden Morgen gereinigt. Bei Ankunft würden wir mit Wein und riesen Antipasti Platten überrascht. Sehr zu empfehlen ist auch sich Mal von T**** bekochen zu lassen. Hervorragend, lecker, viel mehr als reichlich und das für einen super Preis. Freilaufende Gänse und Hasen ums Haus herum. Gemütlich und ruhig. Für uns eine A1 Unterkunft!
Local attractions Restaurants??? Sich von T**** bekochen lassen!!! Die Eisdiele in Altopascio ist auch sehr zu empfehlen. Unsre Ausflüge gingen einen Tag an die Küste, nach Lucca, nach Montecacini Alto mit der Seilbahn und Florenz. Zum Fischessen sehr zu empfehlen Ristorante Rustichello +39 050 804069 https://goo.gl/maps/sD7eat83QobhY8Pe8
