Chiodo is a beautiful farmhouse set high in the hills between Lucca and Pisa, with magnificent views on the valley below. It is located very close to the small village of Vorno, renowned for its beautiful 17th century villas belonging to the oldest families of Lucca, who used them as summer residents. The location combines perfectly town facilities, with its proximity to Lucca, and the perfect quiet of a sheltered countryside. The location is also very convenient for those who wish to visit the main Tuscan tourist destinations, since Chiodo is located only eight kilometers from the motorway entrance/exit. We have been renting this property for many years until 2006, when it was sold to a Dutch family that then spent more than three years of intensive renovations to transform the villa into an ideal holiday home. The architects in charge of the renovation project have succeeded in blending the character of a traditional Tuscan farmhouse with modern design. The result is a beautiful combination between traditional Tuscan materials and contemporary style. The owners have furnished the interior to a very high standard. Having been tenants themselves in Tuscany for many years, they have equipped the villa with all the appliances and facilities they were expecting in a rental property, including internet connection. The beautiful, new swimming pool has been installed in the most panoramic position on the estate. The very spacious and well equipped kitchen opens directly onto the large courtyard and garden overlooking the valley, ideal for eating outside or just relaxing and enjoying the peace and lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
Cleaning service is included 15 hours per week.

Guest Reviews for Chiodo
My experience of your help in the booking and assistance whilst the family were at the villa was excellent!
Thank you very much – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.
We have had a more than pleasant time at casa chiodo. Wonderful house in a great landscape. We would like to give our kindest regards to you and the owner and wish to express our more than happy feelings and admiration about this place and the effort and spirit he has invested into this unique place. We all hope to return some days.
We thoroughly enjoyed this Villa. The location, facilities, including the well equipped kitchen exceeded our hopes and expectations. The nearby town of Lucca was the essence of Italian architecture, history, cuisine, shopping, etc. We traveled to Venice, Rome and Chinque Terra but mostly look forward to return to this charming Villa.
Wonderful house in a quiet beautiful environment. Nice view and tasteful interior.
“Beautiful Tuscan home” Chiodo is a beautiful home that has been restored extremely well. It is located in a wonderful town. It was perfect for our group. Favorite activity: The cooking class.
