“Rob 's review of La Corte 1”
Six of us were very pleasantly surprised with the quality, the size of the villa, and the rooms. It's a ten-minute walk to town and yet very quiet. The bedrooms were quite large and the common area was huge and tastefully decorated. A good-sized pool and tennis court plus large grounds to wander.
“Jean-yves's review of La Corte 1”
Simply sensational time in Tuscany made all the more possible due to our home base at this villa. We had family members from all over North America stay with us and all agreed it was one of the best vacation spots ever. The quiet solitude was a definite highlight. No cars we could hear and nary a wire or power line to disturb the illusion of timeless peace. Birds chirping in the middle of the night and hundreds of fireflies. Our kids loved it! The grounds are significant and even with the adjoining units booked you have a sense of solitude. There was more than enough room for everyone. Lucca is positively charming. We went four times and we loved it so. Proximity to Florence, Pisa, San Gimignano and even Siena is a bonus. Don't miss out on lovely Vinci and its towering view of the countryside. Nearby Altopascio even has its charms if you look for it off the beaten path. If you drive south towards Bientina there are fields of joyous sunflowers as far as the eye can see. Okay that's enough, you pretty much turn any corner, drive/walk in any direction, and you will be amazed.
“Kate's review of La Corte 1”
It was a a relaxing, luxurious getaway. We loved everything about the villa itself! It was beautifully landscaped, sumptuously furnished, and had a lovely layout. The kitchen had everything we wanted for cooking simple meals, and more that we did not use. The pool was beautiful (if a bit cool, in May). There were comfortable chairs and chaises everywhere plenty of places to congregate and also plenty of places to have alone time. Some of the beautiful smaller roads were charming, and we found that the Autostrada got us where we wanted to go quickly. We explored Orvieto en route to the villa, and Lucca, Florence, Pisa, the beach near Pisa and Siena during a leisurely week at the villa. If we had been ambitious, it would have been easy to see more, but we were busy enjoying the villa!

Fantastic. The backyard and peacefulness.
“Suzanne's review of La Corte 1”
The overall experience was wonderful. It's spacious and well appointed. The location is excellent. We enjoyed being able to have breakfast and supper there after a day of touring. Almost everything, but the grounds are spectacular. The grounds and small towns are delightful and close for marketing; Lucca was a special favorite. We also explored Greve-in-Chianti and a winery estate, Siena, Pisa, and the coastal area
“Daniel's review of La Corte 1”
Superb. A beautiful location relatively close to many of the cities/towns we wished to visit. And a beautiful well-kept property. Accommodations were wonderful. Quality of the accommodations and property location. Mattresses in bedrooms were inadequate. We found them to lack support. Beauty of the countryside and proximity to desired sites.
“Terri's review of La Corte 1”
It was very positive. The only minor issue we had was in communicating with the people who let us into the property and checked us out. There was a lot of pointing and charades, but we eventually were able to get essential information conveyed. It was all so good! It was a good size, had loads of character, was well maintained, but I'd have to say the grounds were my favorite thing. They were simply beautiful. It was a bit difficult to find. A map with pictures would have been helpful. We scratched up the rental car taking a wrong turn down a narrow road full of brush. Whoops. We took a drive to a nearby winery which had incredible mountain views. The town of Alto Pascio was also quite hospitable and very charming. The people were incredibly welcoming.
“Denis's review of La Corte 1”
Very much enjoyed the facilities and location. Corte 1 boasted four large bedrooms for just two couples, but it felt luxurious to be able to take advantage of all the space--and we did. The central location made day trips to Florence, Lucca, Pisa, etc perfect. Space, space, space! I was going to say hard beds, but I think the kitchen could benefit from a real oven or convection microwave. We ate in most nights having ravaged local markets for some of the finest food stuffs we've ever experienced. It became a challenge to do it full justice in that kitchen, but we managed. Small quiet towns where you could truly get into the local culture. And everyone was so kind, in spite of our inability to speak Italian. Thankfully some knew enough English or French for us to do what we wanted.
“Joe's review of La Corte 1”
Our expectations were high, and the property exceeded them! The owner explained everything when we arrived, and her English was very good. The house is quiet and beautiful. It's well located, too--we took day trips to the coast, to Florence, to Siena, and to smaller towns in Tuscany. We really liked the authentic Tuscan feel in the house, plus the grounds. The pool was great; our family enjoyed it and the tennis court, as well as the outside dining and sitting areas. We also appreciated the food the owner provided when we arrived; this was very helpful since the local markets were closed. We would have liked to have been a little closer to the village. We spent time in Lucca and enjoyed the Puccini festival and dining in the piazza. Altopascio is a charming town with interesting shops.
“Alison's review of La Corte 1”
We loved the property, which is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We were very happy to find window screens and a well-appointed kitchen. Best of all, we arrived to find a fridge and cupboards well stocked with all the food and wine we needed for our first few days. Thank you to our hosts! The beautiful building, grounds, and pool area were a pleasure to be in. Very relaxing and everything worked perfectly. Morning and evening swims were glorious and we enjoyed the barbeque. It did get mosquitoey for the last couple of days, which made sitting outside difficult. Other days were fine, though. The shower in the smaller bathroom upstairs was difficult to use because it doesn't have a wall fixture. We loved exploring the hill towns to the north, and their restaurants. Beth Elon's "A Culinary Traveller in Tuscany" has some great suggestions for this area where you won't see another tourist but will get great views, delicious food, and a friendly reception.
