We enjoyed our holiday at Sambuca. Beautiful quiet area. Our hostess Oriana is very friendly and brought us fresh vegetables from her garden. The children loved the big swimming pool. We visited Lucca and Pisa.

About the neighbourhood
La Sambuca - Situated 1 hour North of the medieval city of Lucca, and 25 minutes North of the market town of Castelnuovo, Il Sambuco is a collection of 3 houses nestling in the midst of hills, and situated approximately 1km from the road, just North of the tiny village of Contra.The grounds are extensive, and parts of the gardens are used for growing local produce, which guests are welcome to use.
