This lovely stone-built farmhouse is located in a beautiful position, in the hills of Lucca. Giannello is a very special property for six people. It has been tastefully restored in a nice country style in full respect of Tuscan tradition, maintaining the old beamed ceilings and antique cotto floors in most of the rooms. At the same time, it has been supplied with modern equipments, such as Sat-TV and a USB key for internet connection. A particular feature of this property is the large, sunny terrace in front of the house, ideal for eating in beautiful surroundings. Both from the house and from the large swimming pool there are breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside of olive groves and vineyards, as far as the town of Lucca in the distance. From the property it is also possible to see the beautiful historical villas, for which this part of the Lucchese countryside is renowned, and in particular the Villa Reale, where Elisa Bonaparte, Napoleon’s sister and Princess of Lucca, resided. Cooking services, as well as cooking lessons, can be arranged upon request.

There is a narrow road leading to the property but after you're there you feel like in a paradise. From the house is stunning view over Lucca valley and neighbours are far enough for quiet and private holiday. Swimming pool is deep and long. Kitchen is real Tuscan style. Big dining table outside was in our use every morning and often in the evenings, too, if we didn't came back very late. Giannello is ideally located pretty close to Lucca, Pisa, Pistoia, Viareggio and not too far away from Florence. During our two weeks holiday we managed also to see Elba, Siena, Chianti, Porto Venere, Abetone and many other places around. Still we spent time on poolside and enjoyed the stunning views from the house.
We all agreed our stay in Matraia, at Giannello, was the perfect holiday! - The villa was very clean and the beds comfortable. The views were wonderful and the whole experience of staying in Tuscany was fantastic. Before arrival the booking was handled very efficiently and responses were prompt.
I can still hear the sound of the churches' bells and the birds. It was ipnotic and we completely forgot the rumors of a big town. I wish I could still be there..
Mr. D. came back from Gianello and had a wonderful time. He loved it! (Travel Agent)
