Villa Il Forno is exactly what you dream of for a stay in the Tuscan countryside. It is very peaceful and idyllic set amongst olive groves and market gardens and an easy 10 minute drive from Lucca which in my view is one of the most beautiful medieval towns in all of Tuscany. Giulia and Carolina are very attentive and very helpful with hints and tips for a great stay. Carolina even did our shopping when our car got stuck in the driveway on arrival and offered to collect our daughter for us from Pisa airport! However, Gabriele the local mechanic who Giulia recommended quickly and cheerfully sorted out the car issue in time for us to collect our daughter whose flight had been conveniently delayed a couple of hours! So beware about driving down the driveway if you have a big car like ours - a 9 seater - as it will likely get stuck on the gravel. You need to park it outside the gate which is very safe. The house is very clean and beautifully restored - simple yet comfortable with everything a family needs including a big bottle of extra virgin unfiltered olive oil from the owners grove! The owners are just delightful and Giorgio arrived the following morning with local treats for our breakfast and apologies about the car and being unable to greet us in person on arrival. We had our children and a baby so spent quite a bIt of time at the house cooking, eating outside under the trees, swimming in the pool and hiking around the area as well as using the pool. The beds were very comfortable and the showers new with excellent water pressure and hot hot water - not always a given in Italy. The local shop nearby is very well stocked with everything you need. A real home away from home. We will recommend this stay to friends and family and look forward to returning in the future. Many thanks Carolina Giulia Giorgio and Paola for making our stay so special!

We had a fantastic stay at the house. The hosts were very nice and brought us some lokal treats to try. The souroundings are spectacular, the house is big and with plenty of space. The pool was awesome and we liked that the pool was not to deep so it was easyer to play in the pool with our 4year old. The only thing that might have been better was the stairs to the pool wich had a huge tree blocking the way so we used the stair in front of the other apartment. Also it would have been nice to have a better sofa in the house to relax in at night and perhaps nets for the windows to avoid the mosquitos that attacked us a little bit. But these are all only minor comments and all in all the apartment was even better then we expected and hopefully we can come back some day.

Guilia was most helpful in clarifying all our questions and providing all the information needed before departing for our break. We were met by the owners on our arrival, who were charming and couldn't do enough to help. The property was clean and well prepared, and just as we'd hoped, it had been refurbished and finished to a high standard using traditional methods. It was simply furnished and had all that we needed for the 6 of us staying for a week - dining several times at the house. The pool was well maintained and a real asset for the children. We felt that it was also ideally located; a rural setting amongst olive groves and small farms, where you could buy some local produce. It was also an ideal base for either the country side or visiting the nearby towns and cities. Lucca being only a few miles down the road was a 10 minute drive away. Pisa was about 30 mins and Florence about an hour. Mountains and scenery trips were just up the road. It is also worth mentioning that there was a great bakery/shop and restaurant just down the road from the property. The bakery, about 300 metres away, sold not only fresh traditional cakes and breads but also good local produce - and most other things you could need. The restaurant was a little further and is well worth a visit. All in all, we had a great time and would recommend it to anyone looking for a base for exploring the area in an idyllic property and setting. Arwyn George.

Guilia managed the organisation of the accomodation- she was very helpful and liaised with the oweners to ensure we had two baby cots and highchairs for feeding the babies. Our group was two couples and two 6 month old babies. The owners of the accomodation, Paola and Giorgio, were fantastic. They were very warm and welcoming and made us feel at home from the start. They were only a call away for any advice about exploring the region. The pictures on here don't do full justice to the beautiful and quality renovation the house has had making it comfortably modern and retaining its old charm. The area is beautiful and typically Tuscan and close to Lucca by car. I can't recommend the house and the owners enough. We had a fantastic time.

We had a wonderful stay at Il forno. The house is beautiful, very convenient and comfortable, and very tidy. The location is great also, the view of the Tuscan hills, the pool in the olive grove, and a place to buy food very near. The owners were sympathic, answering all of our questions. The whole family would come again with great pleasure. The only thing to note is that the house is in fact two houses with a shared swimming pool.

Giulia was an excellent host. Very helpful, very prompt and quickly addressed any of my questions or concerns. The villa was truly lovely. Very comfortable, extremely clean and in impeccable condition. It was easy to locate and drive to. Convenient to local sites, but in the beautiful country side away from noise and city life. Relaxing and serene. I would highly recommend this location for your stay while visiting Tuscany region. Close to train station. This is definitely a five star villa!
