Maison de vacances Casale Le Sorellacce (FAU210)
Lucca, Pise et environs »
We had a wonderful week here and received a lovely welcome from the owners. The accommodation is a beautiful traditional Tuscan house filled with the owners' treasures. It is not modern but is full of character. There is a lot of space: the living rooms are very grand and superb places to relax, and and the bedrooms large with good views. We did find cooking a challenge – partly because we had stored food and plates in both kitchenettes which were on different floors, and we struggled to light the cooker. The bathrooms were clean, one felt a little basic. We really loved the quiet, rural location, the wonderful views from the lovely gardens – and the pool is amazing, perfect at the end of a hot day's exploring. There is a local deli and we found supermarkets about 15 minutes drive away. We paid 60 euros for the week's electricity – at home we pay that for 2 months electricity in summer. It was a lovely holiday and we took away many happy memories – thank you from us all, Alessandra and Carlo! Traveller tips: The house is well connected for Pisa, Florence and Livorno. We went to lovely beaches near Livorno and Pisa, and also travelled to Lucca and Vinci – we particularly loved Pisa, and Vinci with the Leonardo museums.
