We had a wonderful stay at Villa la Manzana. Sandra & Renzo were so helpful & welcoming to their beautiful villa. Both families loved it and we all want to go back. Viva Italia!

Wonderful week at beautiful Villa La Manzana

  • 5 of 5

Villa La Manzana was even better than it looked in the photos. Lovely old house, some of it dating back to the 17th century, on a steep Tuscan hillside above the village of Nocchi, near Camaiore. This really is a lovely and unspoilt part of Tuscany, and Sandra and Renzo could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Their suggestions for days out and restaurant tips were spot on and played a big part in our enjoyment of our stay - and Renzo's pizza oven skills were quite sensational! The swimming pool was perfect, the kitchen had everything we could have needed and the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. We all loved Villa La Manzana and hope to return!

Stunning villa and Location

We were in the summer with the family at Sandra and Renzo. It was fantastic.

The whole area is so wonderful. A panoramic view of the countryside. So much space for all, including different places to eat. In the morning you can sit for breakfast where the sun rises in the evening by the pool ...

Fresh fruits, everywhere you look. And you may even use. We made fresh lemonade, tomato mozarella and ate figs from the tree.

And Sandra and Renzo are so helpful. The greeting on the first night was exceptional. And then freshly made pizza from Renzo. Very tasty!

Here you definitely recover in two weeks as before in three.

Clear recommendation!

Traumhafte Villa and Location

Wir waren im Sommer mit der Familie bei Sandra und Renzo. Es war fantastisch.

Die ganze Anlage ist so wundervoll. Ein freier Blick ins Grüne. Unglaublich viel Platz für alle, inklusive unterschiedlicher Plätze zum Essen. Morgens sitzt man zum Frühstück da, wo die Sonne aufgeht, abends am Pool...

Frische Früchte, überall wo man hinsieht. Und man darf sich sogar bedienen. Wir machten uns frische Zitronenlimonade, tomate mozarella and aßen Feigen direkt vom Baum.

Und Sandra und Renzo sind so hilfsbereit. Die Begrüßung am ersten Abend war schon außergewöhnlich. Und dann noch frisch gemachte Pizza von Renzo. Sehr lecker!

Hier erholt man sich definitiv in zwei Wochen wie sonst in drei.

Klare Empfehlung!

A wonderful place to relax and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the guest house early summer. We were completely enamored by the whole place and it's lovely surroundings. The house and guest house are nestled on a hill side surrounded by nature. it is truly an authentic Tuscan beauty lovingly restored with modern comforts. Attention to detail is evident, with every turn there is something lovely to wander and ponder over. The farmhouse is perfect for just hanging out, reading a book, swimming and soaking in the beautiful 360 degree views that completely surround you. It is also great for taking day trips to numerous locations like Lucca, Florence the mountains or the beach. Sandra and Renzo are most accommodating and really wonderful people that will steal your hearts. We have been coming back for years and never grow tired of what there is to offer here. Take the plunge this is a wonderful place.

Genuint toskanahus med fantastiskt läge

  • 5 of 5

Vi var en familj på tolv personer som hyrde huset under en vecka i augusti. Huset var välskött, rent och snyggt, och poolområdet härligt, även på kvällen då vi kunde äta middag hela familjen där. Huset ligger verkligen naturskönt med fin utsikt över berg och dalar, det är finare än vad bilderna visar. Huset är gammalt men har alla bekvämligheter så som funktionellt kök med diskmaskin, tvättmaskin etc. Även poolhuset fungerade bra. Alla hade egna badrum. Det enda vi saknade var AC i två av sovrummen i huvudbyggnaden då vi var där under den varmaste perioden. Alla i vår familj, barn och äldre, var väldigt nöjda med huset och framför allt med engagemanget från Renzo och Sandra som hyrde ut huset. De såg till att allt fungerade och att vi hade det bra, utan att vara påträngande. Närmaste restaurang som var riktigt bra låg lite drygt en kilometer från huset. I övrigt var det nära till flera sevärda städer så som Lucca, Pisa och Pietrasanta. Vi kan verkligen rekommendera detta hus och återvänder gärna.
