I've spent my last years beetween Pisa an Lucca attending at the Philosophy Faculty and working for some years in a hotel.
'Beppe' houses are for me a piece of my family history.
We worked togheter for several years to rebuild the property and start to rent it.
And from 2013 I 've decided to do of this one my businness.
During this years it was also a greet opportunity to meet people from all over the world.
We love the place where we live, it is rich in art, culture and suitable for lovers of good food.
We would like to share this passion with those who want to know us.
This houses are owned by my family by decades.
As farmers before and now renting this rebuilded property.
As I said this a way for me to make a businness and to enhance the memory of my family.
The position first of all and the space.
Close to Lucca but in a very quiet place.
With a lot of green 10000 qm just only around the houses.
The best way to be close to the city without its noise.
The booking of this stay went very well. Marco answerred always within 24hrs, so we had immediately a good feeling.
When we arrived, it was clear we were right. Marco was very kind and helpfull. If we had questions, he was doing everything he could to help us. (extra table, removing roses at swimming pool, ...)
We rented the small part. (for 6 persons) It was older then the house for 11 persons, but everything was fine/nice/clean. Also the terrace and garden are very big and beautyfull.
There is a nice swimming pool. On the pictures it looked not so big, but in real it was big enough. --> I think around 10m cross-cut.
It was also nice that we get fresh vegetables from te garden. It was so nice that we will book next year again at this place.
Thanks Marco for the lovely stay!!
I reserved this property for the month of May 2016 and brought a group of family and friends, 7 in total, including my 4 year old grandson. We rented the large villa in the complex, to accommodate a larger group. The grounds are spectacular, with lots of room for children to run and play, including a soccer field area. There are many private sitting areas on the grounds, by the pool, with lots of accommodation to just sit quietly and read a book. Located in a quiet, less touristy residential area. The villa is authentic to Tuscany architecture, dating back 400 years, but lovingly restored. Marco and his family help run the property and were very responsive to our needs. The train station in Lucca is close by to take you on excursions, there are many day tours offered to take you to on wine tours, day cooking classes etc. We walked or biked the wall in Lucca and my daughter ran in the Lucca marathon, a family trip to remember. Roses and other lush follage, are all over the property. Trip of a lifetime, we will come back. Marco promised to cook us pizza next time. Big thanks to Marco and his kind family.
We had a very pleasant stay. Large area with great patios. Small grass court with two soccer goal, perfect for our three boys. Supermarket and restaurants nearby, and 5-6 minute drive to Lucca. The farm is an excellent starting point for beautiful walks in the hills. When it got cold at night, we lit fire in the fireplace - romantic. Marco was friendly and helpful.
This peaceful apartment in a 400-year-old farmhouse was a great place from which to explore some of the popular locations in Tuscany (Pisa, Lucca, even Volterra and San Gimignano) but also to experience a quieter side of Italy away from the crowds. We spent a week here in August with our two teenagers and loved it. The apartment, 2 floors with 2 bedrooms and a bath upstairs and a large living/dining room/kitchen downstairs, was spacious and cool, thanks to the brick floors and the air conditioning (35 Euro option, definitely worthwhile). The kitchen was well enough equipped to let us do our own cooking every day, close to a supermarket in Lucca (5 min.) and a smaller store in the village of Sant’Alessio (2 min.). The swimming pool and deck with lounge chairs and hammock were well maintained and a great way to cool off in the summer heat, shared with the other rental apartment in the house but large enough to accommodate two families. The thick walls of the house meant that we didn’t hear our neighbors, and the hedges around the back garden give the place a feeling of privacy. The owners were easily available—some of the family members live in one of the three sections of the building, and Marco was very easy to reach by text message if he wasn’t around-- and very helpful with getting us set up and suggesting places to go in the area, chatting with us about the history of the home, etc. The owners have a beautiful vegetable garden and one morning brought us a basket of the tomatoes and zucchini we’d been admiring. The WiFi and washing machine in the building worked well. Bikes were available at the house for inexpensive rental; there are some nice bicycling trails near the river and along the top of the city wall in Lucca. It’s not easy to walk to the village (narrow roads without sidewalks), but the back roads behind the house are a peaceful place for walks, and it’s not far to Lucca, which is a great place to explore on foot. A nice bonus: the house is about 1 km down the road from Chef Paolo Monti’s fantastic Italian cooking school, which we attended the day after we arrived, and spent the rest of the week in the kitchen at da Beppe trying out the recipes we’d learned. The house is also a convenient place from which to explore the mountain villages and hiking trails of the Apuan alps, near Castelnuovo di Garfagnana (45 min). Cinqueterre is about an hour away by car. We would definitely come back here!
The house is very nice, spacious with nice bedrooms. Very pleasant to have airconditioning! The garden is enormous, well maintained with nice sitting area's by the house as well as by the pool. From the terrace you have a nice view on the tuscan hills. The kitchen is well equipped with a good stove and plenty of utensils. The owner is very friendly and in they provide good information about nearby restaurants or in the city. Lovely to find fresh vegetables from the garden delivered by Carlo!
A supermarket is nearby and Lucca is within easy reach by bike or by car (free parking near the city walls). The property looks exactly as shown in the pictures, or maybe even better. Very recommendable!
We stayed in Beppe 2 with another couple. Our stay was great. Marco and his family were very nice . Carlos cleaned the pool daily and gave us fresh tomatoes out of his garden.The place was clean on arrival and well maintained. Close to grocery store. The description in the listing was as stated. Air conditioning worked.
All the places were rented and it was still private. Most people keep to themselves. Our place had a private patio out back which was very nice and quiet. You are just outside the town of Lucca. With a GPS it was very easy to find. Modern bath. All linens etc. were provided. You could not hear other renters through the walls.
The family was very helpful when needed, otherwise you are left alone.
It was a great place and we would return if we visit Italy again.
