About Barbara Mac Neil
This property belongs to our family since 200 years. It was the summer home of the family with all around the farming estate. Now this home is not used any more from the family members spread away so we decided to rent it just to make the home live. It's still a summer house without heating at all. Most of the furnishing is still the original one. Some renewal has been done still maintening the original floor tiles, and shape but new bathrooms have been built so each room has now its own bathroom.
Barbara Mac Neil purchased this house in 2010
Why Barbara Mac Neil chose Lucca
