From the large verandah, the colorful garden and the pool area there are beautiful views of the valley below. The house has been converted in a way which makes it possible for two families and groups to share it and remain independent. The first and second floors can be divided into two parts by closing just one door. In separate rooms there is a small billiard table and a wood oven. The very well-kept garden, rich with flowers and plants typical of the area, is completely fenced, making it ideal for families with young children. The large swimming pool is located in a panoramic position in the centre of the flat lawn. A shower and bathroom facilities have also been installed in the pool area.

My family has been using Franello as a home base in Italy since my children were 6 and 8 years old. We just returned again - they are now in their 20s. Lovely spacious farmhouse, beautiful grounds (with lemon, orange and olive trees) and pool for hanging out on the "off days". Neighbors Ivalda who takes care of the house and her family are delightful. Conveniently located - 15 minutes to Lucca, 40 minutes to Pisa, about an hour or so to Florence, Chianti and the beaches; 70 minutes to Cinque Terre; be prepared for a short drive on mountain roads to get to the farmhouse - but well worth it.

Très bon accueil et site agréable

Warm welcome by the housekeeper. The house is surrounded by olive trees. Access is via an unpaved road but there are two possibilities and one is easy. The house simple but equipped and clea Sheets and towels are provided and changed after 7 days. I would recommend Franello. Possibly we will book the facility again.

Despite October the weather was perfect! We enjoyed our holiday very much, visiting Tuscan towns, cooking (we used the pizza oven!) and relaxing in the garden. A very quiteful spot

Maison encore plus belle que sur le site, construction et rénovation vraiment typique de la région, les petits comme les grands se sont régalés. Le four à pizza a bien fonctionné, la première pizza s'est transformée en chausson mais après les pizzas ont été excellentes. La salle de billard a été apprécié et la piscine et son plongeoir nous ont fait passer de bons moments tous ensemble. La dame qui entretenait la maison est très gentille et le retour en France a été un peu dur, ici dans le midi tout est sec et jaune, la verdure de la toscane nous manque déjà. Espérons que nous pourrons vite y retourner.

We have just spent a fantastic holiday at Villa Franello!!! From the time we arrived driving up from Lucca we just could not believe how gorgeous the property was. (the photos do not do it justice you have to see this). The villa is to a high standard. It was large enough for each part of our family group to have their own space if needed to relax & chill out both inside and out, this for us was a real plus as the garden was just something else. We spent many days relaxing around the pool & soaking up the sun as well as enjoying walking in the surrounding countryside. We loved the nearby hill towns of Loppeglia & Fiano, and all what you need for daily could be found in San Martion de Freddana. Ivalda was the perfect host as it could not have been better, as we felt immediately very welcome like at home. She prepared a brilliant homemade dinner for us on the first night. Excellent! We are planning our return visit to Villa Nobile already & will definitely be recommending Franello to others. Thanks for everything Ivalda.
