Description

Set in the heart of a vast estate of rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves, recently renovated Villa Valerie has everything one might need for a wonderful vacation for larger groups, including its own private chapel and ballroom! It was Petrarch in the 14th century who advocated the country house as a place of rest and repose, starting the fashion for beautiful houses set in the hills, away from the heat of the city.

We were absolutely delighted when we visited this villa. The setting is idyllic, the standard of accommodation very high and the service locally unrivalled. There is an English speaking manager on site and there is a direct intercom from the villa to the manager. The attention to detail from the careful owners and the estate manager is excellent. Our guests can enjoy partial air-con in the villa, heated and fenced pool, children's playground, pizza oven, wifi.... The estate produces olive oil and various jams which are available to buy.

Situated only 700 m from the village of Ponte a Moriano and only 10km from Lucca city centre. It is possible to cycle into Lucca along the river path and even on into Pisa for the keen cyclists!

Situated in an idyllic location on an oil producing estate - Villa Valerie is a magnificent villa which originally dates back to the 16th century. The property offers a high standard of accommodation and even boasts its own chapel and ballroom. There is an English speaking manager on site who offers a truly personal service and an unrivalled attention to detail. The nearest village is only 700 metres away where you will find grocery shops and local trattorias. In our opinion - Villa Valerie is one of Tuscany's finest villas which ofefrs excellent amenities such as a fenced pool which can be heated upon request, partial air-con and wifi. Beaches within 40km and Pisa airport 33km. We were delighted by this property when we visited it and highly recommend it!

Lucca, in Northern Tuscany, is an excellent location as you are close to Pisa airport and can experience both the countryside and coast of Tuscany. A pleasant train ride or boat trip will take you to the Cinqueterre, in Liguria, and Florence is easily accessible. The ideal location for guests who want to see as much as possible without having to travel too far.
