Enjoy a quiet holiday beneath the tiled roof of Casa Tonio. Perched on a hill outside Lucca, this restored 17th century stone farmhouse overlooks wide green lawns and boasts extensive gardens and a pool. But dont forget to explore the area, too; its close to small villages, well-known cities like Pisa and Florence, and even the beaches of Italys west coast.
A stay at Casa Tonio is like having your own private Tuscan garden. Stroll under lemon trees, see whats coming up in the vegetable garden and take in the views of olive groves and vineyards. Theres an inground pool, sunny patio and a shaded veranda with furniture thats perfect for al fresco dining. For warm nights, theres an outdoor barbecue and air conditioning (available at extra cost), plus Internet access and a piano for when youd rather be indoors.
The villas interiors are traditional and sunny, with simple white walls, beamed ceilings and warm wood accents. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and is open to the dining room. An eat-in kitchen has double doors that open to the garden, as well as modern perks like a coffee machine, mixer and dishwasher.
Casa Tonios three bedrooms can accommodate up to six guests, making it the perfect size for one family or a few couples. Two of the bedrooms have double beds, and the third has two twin beds; all have shared bathrooms. The traditional decor and beamed ceilings are carried through the bedrooms, and if youre traveling with a very little one, baby equipment is available.
Stock up on fresh produce or pastries in the village of Segromigno in Monte, which is within walking distance. If youd like to take a day trip, theres a train station just over 7 miles away. While youre in the Lucca area, be sure to visit Pisa, about 20 miles from Casa Tonio, and Florence, about 40 miles away. Or take a drive to the beaches near Pisa; the Mediterranean coast is about 25 miles away.

SWIMMING POOLS - Swimming pools are not open all year. If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.
HEATING - Heating is available at an additional charge of 50 Euro per day and must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.
WATER AND ELECTRICITY - Please note that most of the properties that we offer are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.
INTERNET CONNECTION - Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
LOW SLUNG CARS - VANS MINIBUSES - Most of our houses are located in the countryside. Some of them can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways. We therefore advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us, at the time of booking, if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at one of our properties.
