Incredible home, Incredible vacation!
I cannot say enough about this Villa, or caretaker George and Linda. We were three families traveling for a week together. Six adults and six kids, who love to spend time together, but also crave their own space. This house was PERFECT. Not only was it beautiful, clean and well-stocked, the layout of the space was beyond. Each family had their own wing, which helped when putting the kids to sleep (or when one family woke up early.)
We stay in luxury hotels all over the world, and this house lived up to it. Everything we needed was there and more. The kitchens were top of the line, the view from the pool was amazing, and the location near Pisa Airport and Lucca could not be better.
Our biggest regret was not booking Tastemotions to cook for us every night. We booked them for three, and it was not enough. Their food was delicious, better than any restaurant we ate at. And having them cook for us made the vacation so relaxing.
I would recommend this home 100 x over. We would def stay there again. George and Linda were around to answer any questions we had, and the goof around with our kids. They were lovely hosts!
Thank you for your very kind and informative review about it being a perfect house for families getting together, we really appreciate your enthusiasm for the interiors and layout of the house and are pleased you all had a great vacation here. We hope to see you all again soon!
The property is amazing! Linda and George, the managers, assure that
every detail is covered. The landscaping is beautiful. The kitchen is
fully equipped. Linda and George are a wealth of knowledge
regarding the area. As my husband would say, "It is the closest thing
to heaven. "
A perfect villa for a family holiday
If this villa is available, we recommend that you book it.
It is a perfect venue for a family holiday in a beautiful part of Tuscany. George and Linda were very welcoming hosts. They were kind and helpful, and offered very good advice about places to visit and local amenities. The villa is very well equipped and beautifully furnished. The rooms are spacious and the air conditioning very effective. The pool is fabulous, suitable for swimming and paddling, with ample pool-side shade.
With Linda's help we arranged for local chefs Larissa and Valentino (from TasteMotions) to come to the villa; on the first night they cooked beautiful food, and on the second we had an engaging pasta-making lesson.
It is peaceful and secluded but only a short distance from Pisa and Lucca. It is an ideal location for a multigenerational holiday.
Thank you for your review, we really appreciate your comments regarding the house as a perfect venue for multigenerational gatherings and look forward to seeing you all here again someday.
Perfect Hideaway for a big Family
The house is difficult to find, especially at night: no sign at the turn-off from the road. But once there things couldn't be better. Top quality furniture, kitchen, bathrooms, everything in perfect working condition and sparkling clean. Ample supply of Nespresso capsules makes waking up a pleasure. Other Highlights: the pool and the breathtaking view from everywhere, sunrise, moonrise: very romantic! The Location is off the beaten path (which is a bonus), but close enough to Lucca, Pisa, the beach, but not too far from Florence and the Chianti Region. The Managers Linda and George are always available with good recommendations for where to go and what to do, and - a highlight: organising a professional chef/sommeliere couple to cook private 5-star dinners at the property! Anyone interested in an unforgettable vacation should book The Frantoio!
Fabulous house! Highly recommended.
We were three families in this house, during a heat wave, and we had a fantastic vacation. The house itself is newly renovated and very tastefully restored and decorated. Between the mosquito-proof windows and the air-conditioning - and of course the pool - we were all very comfortable, day and night. The house is large, and we had plenty of room to spread out, even with 6 kids. Linda and George were hugely helpful and responsive to questions and requests, and just lovely, all round. This is one of the best houses we have ever stayed in as a family - I can't recommend it highly enough.
Italian countryside retreat
What a lovely place! We thoroughly enjoyed The Frantoio and were so happy our blended family of 10 had this beautiful Italian countryside experience. The individual suites provided plenty of privacy and the air conditioning was highly appreciated in the July heat. There were also plenty of areas to explore and relax and the entire crew loved the pool and it’s views, and our nightly dinners on the terrace. Linda and George are thoughtful, informative hosts who took the time to make sure everyone was comfortable. Lastly, we HIGHLY recommend Taste Motions for their authentic, fabulous Italian cooking by Larissa and Valentino. They treat you with such kindness and respect, they take care of everything from setting the table, to serving their locally inspired food, to cleaning up afterwards. All at a very reasonable price! The Frantoio is a very special place and we were thankful for the experience and the lovely people we met along the way.
Thank you for your most thoughtful comments, we appreciate your review and are happy that you all enjoyed your stay.
