Third visit there and only just returned, looking for flights to go back as soon as we can!!!
The accommodation is fantastic with excellent service from our hosts, a couple of great restaurants in the village and although near Lucca, Florence and Pisa with all their great attractions you can really experience the village life in San Andrea.
Well worth a visit to this beautiful accommodation.

Management response:

These great people have fallen love with Tuscany, and Sant' Andrea in particular...they are always great fun, and have become part of our Italian family. We look forward to their visits.

About the neighbourhood
The village has an excellent pizzeria, 'Tre Tigli' and a great pub, 'Jimmy's'
There is a small grocery store stocking all the essentials, with several larger supermarkets close by. March sees the 'Camillia Festival' with thousands of camillia plants blooming at their peak...visitors come from all over the world to see the show. Of course, the Town of Lucca is not to be missed..a short 20-minute drive away.
Getting around
A car is really a necessity...we are approx. 11 KM. from the walls of Lucca town, in a hidden valley in the Pisan Mountains. The village is nestled in a bowl-shaped valley with olive groves and vineyards. There is easy access to the village with 2 paved entrance roads....bus service, however, is only twice daily.
