Eravamo in 5 in casa e ci siamo trovati tutti benissimo. Il proprietario è stato gentile e molto ospitale. La vicinanza al centro comodissima. Nulla da lamentarci. Se dovessimo essere di nuovo in tanti l'anno prossimo sarà il primo posto che contatterò.
Home away from home in Lucca
Casa Viviana is located near Sant’ Alessio, a suburb about a 10-minute drive from Lucca's historic center. The 2-bedroom-1-bath house is actually a part of a traditional country house, but sectioned off with its own private entrance. The owners occupy the rest of the building, but they are very discreet. The grounds are well-kept, and the entire place is a lush green sanctuary surrounded by many trees and shrubs. Despite the hot summer heat of August, it always felt a few degrees cooler in the shade. We also love the swimming pool, which we had to ourselves throughout our two-week stay.
The interior of the house is clean and the furnishings an eclectic mix of old furniture and modern appliances. You have the option of dining indoors, or al fresco on the terrace. If you’re planning to cook simple meals, the kitchen is well-equipped with pots and pans of all sizes. Just bring your own condiments and buy fresh groceries from nearby supermarkets.
Our host Nicola made sure we settled in comfortably into our home away from home.
What we liked:
1. An air-conditioning unit on ground floor - a life saver on hot summer days. We brought our own table fans for the bedrooms.
2. A lovely swimming pool for our use
3. A proper kitchen to prepare simple meals during our stay, including all necessary small appliances, pots, pans, utensils and tableware.
4. Fine-mesh netting on the windows which keeps mosquitoes out but allow fresh air through.
We encountered the following issues during our stay, and Nicola responded promptly:
1. Quirky washing machine controls - Nicola took the time to figure out where the inconsistencies were and how to make it work. He will look up the manual for future guests to refer to.
2. Clogged bathroom sink - Nicola provided us the means to unclog it ourselves
3. Leaking shower head due to a missing washer - Nicola bought a new shower head for replacement
4. The flush handle of the old-fashioned toilet is too high up for our young kids to reach - we hope Nicola can find a way for future young guests to use it conveniently
5. Leaking pipe under kitchen sink - Nicola arranged for a plumber to reinforce the piping the next day
One suggestion - the mattresses in the bedrooms are lumpy and sunken in the middle. Perhaps to replace them for a better night’s sleep?
"Grazie mille" Nicola for the kind hospitality. Despite the minor inconveniences, we have enjoyed our stay in Casa Viviana. All the best for you and your family!
Deel van woning, rustig gelegen. Fijn zwembad
Woning is gedeelte van huis op rustig gelegen landgoed vlak bij Lucca. Woning is in authentieke stijl, daardoor sfeervol maar ook ietwat gedateerd qua comfort op gebied van keuken, bedden en badkamer. Het terras zit heerlijk. Het zwembad heeft prachtig uitzicht en is ideaal qua temperatuur, grootte en diepte. Fijne plek om te genieten van het Toscaanse buitenleven.
Idealic Lucca location
My family and I had a wonderful time in Lucca. The property is very well maintained in a peaceful location only 5 minutes from Lucca and there is a good supermarket, restaurant, ice cream shop and bar in the local village only a minute away. The owners are descrete but also on site if needed and helpful with good knowledge of the area. The pool is ideal and it was wonderful to have it mostly to ourselves for our entire stay. The house is well equip with everything you could need. Lucca is a lovely place to visit with many attractions in the surrounding area. It is a great central location for visiting places such as Pisa, Florence, Cinque Terre etc.
Un'oasi di pace a pochi minuti dal centro
Ero tentata di scriverne male così da "conservarmi" questo tesoro per future escursioni in Toscana ma la gentilezza del proprietario, la belllezza del posto e la tranquillità mi avrebbero fatta sentire un'egoista!
Tutto é curato e pulito, l'autunno ha colorato il giardino con dei colori indescrivibili e Nicola (il proprietario) é stato di una gentilezza e di una disponibilità rare.
Spero di tornarci presto!
A tasteful holiday home near Lucca
Casa Viviana was an excellent choice for our holiday near Lucca. The property is the end section of an attractive country house, decorated with flair and elegance in a traditional style. There is an eclectic range of artworks and some nice furniture. The terrace immediately outside is perfect for al fresco meals and there are very extensive gardens and grounds including olive groves and fruit trees, which afford a high degree of privacy. The pool is lovely and offers outstanding views towards and beyond Lucca, though the city itself falls below the ridge. Nicola proved a very amenable host and offered helpful advice on places to visit. A great place to stay just five to ten minutes from the city walls.
