The property is located not far from Lucca. Lucca is a place that you can just walk around and discover and enjoy and it's really close to Firenze and far from the crowds. It has many things to offer to the guests as you can visit the city both by foot or cycling into the walls. There are a lot of place to see in the beautiful town, first of all the ancient walls, the Amphitheater square and not least the Torre Guinigi. In a few kms from Lucca you will also find beautiful villas like Villa Reale, Villa Mansi or Villa Torrigiani.   

The Lucca area offers also a lot of interesting naturalistic places like Garfagnana, Valle del Serchio or Piana di Lucca. For those who wish to swim in the sea, the coastal strip of Versilia, from Forte dei Marmi to Torre del Lago Puccini, offers more than 20 kilometers (12 miles) of beaches, parks and splendid countryside. Most beaches can be reached from Lucca by car in 30 to 45 minutes.  

It could be also an ideal point to tour around the famous Cinque Terre. The area is easily reachable by car with the A11 super way Firenze-Pisa (called also Firenze mare) exit Capannori (11 km). From Genova you can use the A12 Genova- Rosignano. The railway station, that is not far from centre, links the city with Firenze and Pisa with hourly connection. From Firenze then you can reach all other Italian Cities.

We had with our family an amazing time! This is the real Tuscany..the house is nice and cosy, and well kept so you have everything you need. The garden amazing with fresh fruit and vegetables and an amazing big pool that was kept daily clean. Adolfo and his wife are ready to help with anything.. we needed a special adapter and Adolfo went immediately to get one for us! The view is beautifull and the place is very neat. The location is perfect.I would recommend it to anybody who wants to have a real tuscan experience. 5 stars.

Perfekte omgivelser - og god service fra både TuscanHouses og fra værtsparret Carolina og Alonso. Skøn pool og dejlig have, hvorfra vi måtte forsyne os med tomater og krydderurter mv. kæmpe gæstfrihed. Tak for det! Stor anbefaling herfra. Booking - July - 2021

Fantastic villa

Thank you to Carolina and Adolfo for hosting us at this amazing villa. Spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated in the Tuscan style with everything you need for a great holiday especially with Covid when going out is more difficult. We had a lovely time just lazing by the pool and cooking in the well stocked kitchen, using the pomodori and melanzane from the orto. The property is very private and Carolina and Adolfo checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. Can’t recommend this villa highly enough. Grazie mille.

Wonderful traditional Tuscan experience

We (2 parents and 4 adult children) had an exceptional holiday at the Meriggio Barn. The house is a wonderful family home, superbly well equipped and extremely comfortable and spacious. The air conditioning is excellent on hot evenings to cool the bedrooms. Communications with the della Santa family were extremely courteous and professional - they responded instantly to any minor problem we had and were very efficient at replacing the WiFi router which had developed a fault. We just loved the house - it is full of character - so much more appealing than some anonymous holiday villas we have rented over the years. It sits in a small cluster of houses and yet is very private. This was a relaxing holiday for us so we tended to spend our time by the pool with occasional outings towards Lucca (25 mins drive). Each morning we went to an excellent bread shop for breakfast goodies (5mins drive) and in the evenings went to the town of Montecarlo (again 5min drive) which offered an amazing selection of restaurants and also to a great spaghetteria in Alto Pascio. The house overlooks lovely Tuscan countryside but it is very accessible from the Pisa Florence motorway and the supermarket (Esselunga - excellent opening hours) was around 15mins drive. The Meriggio Barn experience was fabulous and we would love to return some time - we would not hesitate to recommend the property to others - you will not be disappointed. Vrbo - July - 2019

Perfect familie huis

Het huis is super voor 2 gezinnen. Ruime eettafel buiten, prima ingerichte keuken. Het zwembad is lekker groot in een zeer grote tuin, daarnaast zijn er voldoende lig/stoelen bij het zwembad. Voorts kun je ook nog eens naast het zwembad onder een pergola lunchen met zijn allen. Als uitvalsbasis naar Lucca (20 min) en Florence (60 min) zeer geschikt dichterbij is bijv. Montecarlo mooi authentiek stadje. Vrbo - July - 2019

Fantastic traditional family villa overlooking mountain ranges to the North

Fantastic traditional family villa overlooking mountain ranges to the North Fantastic place for families to stay. Quiet but close to cute hill town of Montecarlo and short distance to Lucca. Great pool for kids to play after long days exploring Tuscany with a relaxing back deck to enjoy the fading summer skies. Place very clean and all amenities made available. recensione inviata: 6 lug 2018 | Data soggiorno: giugno 2018 | Homeaway

Property was wonderful and had all that we required. Location and views were great and pool was lovely with plenty of space for 8 adults and 1 baby. Family were great and they organised for us a meal at the villa with Lido and his wife cooking pizza and pasta, which we could not finish as so much. Great holiday and close enough to drive to Pisa, Lucca and Florence. Would go back.

“Second to none”

There is no better place to stay in Tuscany. The property was beautiful and spacious. Four adults and six children very comfortable. The hosts were always helpful and kind. Easy to use as a central base when touring Tuscany. make sure you have Lido prepare a gourmet meal for you at the Villa as this is also unsurpassed.When in Tuscany I would stay no where else.

The Micheli Family had an Awesome stay at the Merrigio barn!

Our family consisted of 7 adults and two small children. The facility was perfect for our family - there was plenty of room and the accommodations were outstanding. Our hosts, Elisa and Carolina, could not do enough for us and responded very quickly to our questions and concerns. They had even provided equipment for the babies including high chairs and toys. The pictures on line are beautiful but do not give justice to the quality of the facility and the peacefulness of the setting. It is truly a gem in the Tuscan countryside! We had arranged for a cooking class to celebrate a birthday and our hosts were able to have Chef Lido available within 24 hours of the request. It was perhaps one of the most memorable events that our family has had and the food was delicious! We only regret that the time went by so quickly. We will definitely refer the Merrigio barn to our friends and family. All the best, Paul Micheli
