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.

Heerlijk huis met een prachtige tuin. T***** onze gastvrouw ontzettend lief en behulpzaam. Ook een leuke kookworkshop en wijnproeverij bij haar gedaan.
Enige nadeel was dat we af en toe geen water hadden of alleen koud water. dit werd wel zo snel mogelijk opgelost, er was iets kapot aan een pomp.
Local attractions Florence op nog geen uur rijden, Lucca op een half uur rijden. Monte Carlo op wandelafstand ( 40 minuten lopen). Vespa's huren in Lucca. Vele goede restaurants in de buurt (ook op loopafstand).
