My wife and I stayed at Casa Viva La Toscana for one week during May.
It’s a large 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home in a beautiful setting. The place is immaculately clean and very comfortable. The back yard borders on a vineyard. Postcard views from the pool and side terrace.
Although outside the city walls, transportation is simple and easy. Public transport into Lucca Old City leaves directly out front of home. 8 minutes into Lucca by car. We had a rental car and there is plenty of room for secure off road parking.
Emily is a wonderful host. Warm, friendly and helpful.
She offered several suggestions for places to visit, locally and as a day trip.
Large house with beautiful views across vineyards. Big garden with pool and seating areas. Lots of bars and restaurants close by or a 10 minute drive and you are in the centre of Lucca. Everything you need for a great holiday.
Great spacious house with all you would need for a fabulous holiday. Lots of little extras you don't normally get in rented accommodation like candles and beautiful wine glasses. Large bedroom with plenty of wardrobes and drawers and an amazing view across vineyards to the countryside. Garden and pool were lovely , spacious and secluded and needed in the heat of July. Balcony at front of house was a great place to cool off and have lunch or evening drinks. We wanted for nothing and Emily, the host, was always on hand should we need her and left us tasty home grown fruit and veg from the garden. Plenty of restaurants within a 5 minute drive and only 10 mins from the centre of Lucca. Will definitely return and soon.
