Description

La Flora is a huge farmhouse that has been recently totally restored to a very high standard. The discerning British owners, who have been tenant themselves at properties in Tuscany for years, have carefully taken into consideration their past experience and furnished the house with all the comforts they were expecting and rarely found in a rental property. The result is a property restored in total respect of the Tuscan tradition with beamed ceilings, antique cotto floor and washed colours-decor yet at the same time equipped with all modern amenities. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is an impressive combination of high tech with Bulthup appliances and traditional Aga oven cooker. Despite being very close to Lucca - the town centre is only 8 kms away - it is located in a quite setting , inside the "Nottolini park" .The area takes its name from the famous architect who built the neoclassical monumental aqueduct that runs along the boundary of the estate and is popular with those who love walking and jogging in a quiet and historical surrounding. A particular feature of La Flora is the unusually large - 20 x 5 meters- infinity swimming pool plastered in grey with blue reflexes totally fenced for children's safety. Thank you for not smoking at La Flora. Please kindly remark that no no bookings are taken for La Flora from principal client below age 25.

Guest Reviews for La Flora

Jean D. (Milano, Italy)

Gina and her assistant were brilliantissimi !
Wonderfull holydays in la Villa La Flora ,which could have been at its best if, there was more outside space in the shade with armchairs, stools and stands for drinks before the meals.


Anna Gudny A. (Zug, Svizzera)

I enjoyed the stay in villa La Flora very much. The house is lovely, the pool great and the bedrooms extremely good. I highly recommend this villa.
The only thing I would suggest the owner should improve is to add more wine glasses . The maid service is great and very helpful. Over all I loved villa La Flora.


Valerie M. (Somers, Usa)

Our stay at La Flora was perfect. Gina was absolutely wonderful and very responsive and helpful. I don’t think that I can think of anything that would’ve made it more perfect. I don’t think that we are going to Italy next summer, because we have a plan to go to Croatia. I have recommended La Flora to many people, but I’m not sure that any of them have enough people in their group to rent it.
This was the second time that I rented la Flora and I found the coordinates very helpful in locating it.

We had a wonderful stay at villa La Flora. The house is beautiful and the pool is amazing. Gina was a great host + greeted us so warmly upon arrival. We had multiple meals cooked and prepared in the villa and every single one was the best we ever had. Francesca was a doll and a fabulous cook. We were able to see Cinque Terre, Siena, Chianti and Florence easily via day trips. This is a perfect home for a large group. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend time in Tuscany. Thank you for a wonderful stay and memories that will last for a lifetime.

We searched for quite a while to find the right place to have a family gathering for our 70th birthday year. By vote we chose La Flora. It is rare in my experience when a hotel or destination proves to be better than the photos but La Flora surpasses our highest expectations. And after a week- long bike trip (for me) in the Italian Alps, and a week for two in Bellagio and more Southern Italy this was the perfect place to get all 11 of us together. With 5 grandchildren under nine years old, the pool was the biggest hit. Another highlight (as if any were needed for this house) were Francesca and Federico. Their cooking was simply wonderful but they surpassed their cooking. Our oldest grandson has his 9th birthday while there. They brought balloons, gifts and made a remarkable birthday cake. They will both be part of the fond memories. Our week ends tomorrow – back to work and real life (including our ridiculous President) but our memories of this amazing house, the Tuscan countryside and of all the wonderful trees . Wished this week will last beyond our 70th birthday Thank you so much for sharing La Flora!

La Flora was an amazing place. It was so beautiful - perfect for our group of friends. There was a lot of common space, yet a lot of privacy if you needed some time to yourself. The villa itself had so much character and history, yet all the modern conveniences. Everything was very clean and new - the linens and towels were lovely and Julia (the cleaning lady) did a fabulous job for us. The pool was fantastic, and the grounds were beautiful. It was such a relaxing environment!! We loved the entire experience, from walking alongside the Aquaduct to explore the neighborhood, to riding bikes into town for groceries. The guidebooks the owners offered were very helpful in terms of both local restaurants and the "how to" of appliances. I will never forget our week at La Flora - it was absolutely perfect.

“La Flora had the old world charm of Tuscany with modern convienances. The Villa lived up to our expectations and was in a great location. Pool and grounds were beautiful and great to enjoy after a long day. The villa was very clean and spacious with seperate living areas on all three floors.”

I am one of the Canadian contingent who rented La Flora Sept19-26. The villa is really lovely – we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (The beds were very comfortable as were the bed linens and pillows)

in der Tat war die Villa La Flora ein Traum. Alle meine Freunde, die dabei waren haben gesagt, daß sie noch nie in einem so gut geführten Haus waren. Wir haben auch schon überlegt im Frühjahr wieder eine solche Fahrt zu machen.Wir fahren ja mit unseren Cabrios. 900 km von Augsburg aus sind da die Schmerzgrenze. Wenn wir im Frühjahr fahren, sind wir 3 bis 5 Paare. Als Ziel haben wir uns Elba, Korsika, Südfrankreich oder eben wieder Italien bis max Südtoskana gesetzt. Besonders gut hat uns an La Flora die Sache mit dem Koch am ersten Abend gefallen und daß jemand da war, der sich gekümmert hat.Wenn wir schon dabei sind: Die Anfrahrt zu La Flora war schwierig, da wir uns alle auf das Navi verlassen haben, die Koordinaten jedoch nicht gestimmt haben. Schade war auch, daß die Betten allesamt so gequitscht haben. Bei allen Betten hätten wir Komfort vor Ambiente vorgezogen. Alles andere war TOP! Die Küche, die Kücheneinrichtung, das Ambiente, der Pool, die Lage, Der Eisspender im Kühlschrank, der Weinschrank, ..... Die Liegestuhlauflagen ware vollzählig und neuwertig. Man hat an La Flora gemerkt, daß sich jemand kümmert.
