When we first arrived we were a little worried about how far we were going to have to travel for day trips, it's about 1.25 hours north of Lucca. However... by the end of our stay we looked forward to that beautiful drive, felt lucky to experience authentic Tuscan life and did NOT want to leave! The villa suited our...

Management response:

Fabulous two week stay in July, booked both properties for a group of three families. The properties are authentic Tuscan and very well equipped with a nice pool set in a stunning location. If you can tear yourself away from the pool, there are plenty of local activities available to suit all ages with the Tuscan beaches around 1.5 hours...

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. Whilst Nicciano has some facilities, the local village of Piazza Al Serchio with its bars, restaurants, supermarket, Tuesday morning market, and Train Station is less than a 5-minute drive away and bread is delivered each morning.
The views from this extremely peaceful site are magnificent - the houses overlook the green and fertile Serchio valley, with views of the Apuane and Appenine Alps. Thi...
