Our generous and gracious hostess met us on arrival for the initial tour of the family home. We all selected one of the well appointed bedrooms with
accompanying bathroom. The 400 year old villa is full of antiques, paintings and was a thrill to hang our hats for 7 days. We acted like children squealing with delight at discovering each beautiful room or wandering through the glorious gardens surrounding this magnificent property.
It’s close proximity to Lucca, Pisa and other towns such as Forte dei Marmi kept us busy exploring each day. One of the staff served our breakfast in the garden each morning (including fresh cherries from their trees) and helped us with laundry and any questions regarding the local area. He is an asset to the
property - we all wanted to take him home!
Two nights we took advantage of the cook who prepared a scrumptious meal of local fare served in the magnificent dining room. We didn’t use the pool as we were too busy exploring, but if staying in the heat of summer I’m sure it would be a pleasure to hang around.
We all felt our time went too soon and would happily recommend this glorious ancient villa to any group or family.
There are thousands of rental villas throughout Italy, but very few as spectacular as Villa Giurlani.
