La Cecchella: Building Exterior, Garden, Pool

Villa La Cecchella

  Tuscany, Lucca, San Martino In Freddana-monsagrati

  •   10  Sleeps
  •   5  Bedrooms
  •   5  Bathrooms


La Cecchella is a comfortable and secluded property with private swimming pool located in the North-West countryside of Lucca, between the town and the Versilian coast. The environment is a rural country spot encircled by trees, perfectly kept loans and a veggie garden, making it a perfect place where to relax and live open-air in a totally green contest. The large flat garden is particularly ideal for families with children and the several external areas have been planned to best enjoy al fresco meals and equipped with outdoor comforts including a pizza oven and barbecue.

The interior of the house have been furnished with particular attention to details and to make travellers enjoy their holiday during summer. La Cecchella has been equipped with Satellite home-surrounding televisions, fans, mosquito nets and a Jacuzzi bath. The owner, an Italian Decorator, has restored this stone-built property preserving the Tuscan materials, such as cotto floors and beamed ceiling.

There are 4 bedrooms in the main house; two double bedrooms on the first floor with their private bathroom (shower) and two - one double and one with twin beds - on the top floor sharing a bathroom with jacuzzi bath. At the pool house, ideal for a couple looking to maintain total privacy, there is a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and an open space kitchen opening into the cosy veranda. Guests in the past have particularly benefit from the proximity of the kitchen and the outside dining area to the swimming pool.

The position of La Cecchella is very convenient as it is less than five minute drive from a village with food shops, an ice-cream shop, a newsagent selling international papers and a couple of restaurants while the beautiful city of Lucca is a very short drive away. At easy reach there are also the artsy town of Pietrasanta or the coastal resorts in Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi. Furthermore, there is an extensive list of day trips that clients can do when staying at the villa; from visiting the magnificent monuments in Florence, to enjoy some wine in one of the most renowned wineries in Tuscany or enjoying the wild and unspoiled nature in the Southern part of Tuscany, Maremma.

Salogi Team will be happy to support clients staying at La Cecchella when organising sightseeing tours, wine tastings or booking restaurants.

Guest Reviews for La Cecchella

Dear Francesca & family,

We hoped for a wonderful autumn vacation week in Tuscany, and our expectations was fully met. The house is absolutely impressive with a very nice garden and nicely decorated inside. Especially the outdoor pizza oven was often used.
Things to do:
- Visit of Lucca + Pisa
- Short trip to the sea
- Hiking in the hills around the village
- Drink a coffee in a remote town

Thank for the family for trusting us to stay in their house. We really enjoyed it and might come back one day.
Warmest regards

Dear all,
A huge thank you for our stay here. A wonderful time enjoyed by all the family. Visit to Florence, Lucca, the beach and of course chilling in the garden with the lovely pool here.

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay we had in the villa! We loved the space of the house, the surroundings and your warm welcome!
Our children enjoyed the pool every day and having breakfast at the pool house was a present every day.
We would love to come back some day!

We had a wonderful stay and real quality family time here. Two weeks of sunshine, amazing food and relaxing.
Thank you for making our stay so comfortable.
We hope to be back any time soon!

Wir hatten mit 12 Personen einen tollen Aufenthalt in der Villa! Außerordentlich nette Besitzer die mit Rat und Tat zur Seite standen! Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Our sincere thanks for our wonderful stay at your beautiful La Cecchella! We had a memorable family get together and throughly enjoyed Tuscany, Chianti Region , Lucca, (NOT Pisa), Pietrasanta, Florence, Barga and Bagni di Lucca. The dinner was delicious! To your health and happiness!!

Thank you very much for making our holiday in Tuscany so special. La Cecchella was the perfect villa for our family. The children have loved running in the garden and swimming in the pool and the adults enjoyed many fun BBQ evenings and making Pizza.
We have hugely appreciated your hospitality and thoughtfulness.
We would love to visit again sometime!
Best wishes.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in your beautiful home. The pool and pool house are fantastic and the garden is lovely. Many thanks also for the wonderful dinner you all prepared for us.
We would love to come back again sometime!

Thank you very much for making this holiday such a great one. The pool was loved by all, the lawns were very much enjoyed by the children. Everything was so clean and well kept and had everything we needed.
Thank you for your kindness, hospitality and advice.
When we come back we will stay here for sure.
Thank you again.

We have had such a wonderful time visiting Italy, and our stay at Villa La Cecchella has been peaceful and relaxing for the parents as well as playful and adventurous for the little ones. We were so happy to meet your wonderful family and get to know you, if even just a little. Your hospitality (and all of the incredibly tasty pizza).
We made an already superb visit so personal, and not just a tour.
All our best wishes and our gracious thank to you all.

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. We have so enjoyed our stay and reconnecting with family and friends.
We had South Africans, Brits, New Zealand and Australian all enjoying Italian hospitality and all wanting to stay; unfortunately walk awaits.
The pool was a huge Hit! Along with magnify BBQ and alfresco dining. Brilliant to be outside until late each night (We were happy to wear the war wounds of mossie bites)
We enjoyed watching the world cup in the local bar and popping to the gelateria for pudding – highly recommended.
We had a lovely holiday in Tuscany many years ago and came back. It was everything we remembered. Thank you for allowing us to create many happy and new memories in your lovely home.

We had the best time staying at this villa after our friends wedding. The villa was a great size for a big group and we had many happy days lazing around the pool and having BBQ's in the evening. The owners were amazingly helpful - we stayed in contact via Whatsapp for any questions (e.g. supermarket recommendations) and they hosted a pizza party for us on the final night using our pizza oven. Really loved it.

Wonderful days in a beautiful garden, and a very nice house, where we enjoyed our holiday!

Thanks for the great recording in your house. We were very pleased with everything and will definitely come again.

Un séjour magnifique! Une villa extra, un service impeccable et un emplacement rêvé pour se reposer et se couper du monde malgré la courte distance entre la ville et la villa *** (A wonderful stay! A super villa, impeccable service and a dream location for rest and cut the world despite the short distance between the city and the villa)

Leaving always hurts... This was absolutely the best week of the year. Thank you so much for everything. The house is marvelous and Tuscany our favorite place

Thank you so much for everything you have done to make our holiday so special! The villa is absolutely fantastic, everything we could have wished for! We hope to be back soon!

Thank you for letting us have a great time in La Cecchella. Great house, beautifully decorated and furnished. Fine pool and pool house. This part of Toscana is lovely, we will be back, if only for the restaurants. We tried many of them and all were good in their own way.

A very hot week in a fantastic house and a wonderful environment. We enjoyed Lucca and Florence and the beaches of Forte dei Marmi. We will be back!

We had a great time in La Cecchella from the minute we arrived. Rita, Francheska and Marco were very nice and helpful throughout our stay. Villa is in great condition and the villa and the grounds are very well maintained and its everything what was told to us. villa is very safe and very well located from all the attractions like Lucca, Pisa and florence.

Many thanks for a wonderful week. We have enjoyed the sunshine, the swimming pool, the house and most of all the food. The cooking service offered by the host family was just superb and we recommend it to anyone staying at La Cecchella!

Just a short note to thank you for your services and welcome gift. We really enjoyed La Cecchela and hope the owners were happy as well

We have just enjoyed the most amazing 3 weeks in this fabulous villa. It has been home from home. Rita, Marco, Francesca and Elisa have made us more than welcome the whole time. Cooking for us on two occasions, which we totally recommend, absolutely delicious. Everything has been first class and we will most definitely be back very soon. Thank you all for being the best hosts ever.

Thank you very much for our wonderful stay in this beautiful house. It was a real pleasure, especially that you really made us feel at home. We really liked Italy and staying here was the perfect way to enjoy the whole experience. Tuscany is very pretty, the food is amazing, the weather is great (having the pool was awesome!). All this to say that we’ll be back and that we would love to welcome you in Paris!

A short note to say how much we have loved our two weeks in Tuscany at La Cecchella. The house was perfect for us and our guests, from the spacious rooms to the beautiful grounds and pool, we have really felt at home. Some of our most memorable moments have been sitting outside enjoying your amazing pizza and Tuscan dishes. Thank you so much for all the effort and hard work you’ve put into making our holiday such a splendid one. We will certainly be recommending the villa to our friends and hope to be back ourselves sometimes soon. Grazie!
