VILLA CHIODO FEATURES OUTSTANDING VIEWS OF THE COUNTRY SIDE & ALFRESCO DINING

Lucca Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps

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. It 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. The villa was sold in 2006 to a Dutch family who 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.

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. The house is equipped throughout with Wi-Fi connection.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

SWIMMING POOLS - Swimming pools are not open all year. If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients’ use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.

HEATING - Heating is available at an additional charge of 50 Euro per day and must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

WATER AND ELECTRICITY - Please note that most of the properties that we offer are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

INTERNET CONNECTION - Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.

LOW SLUNG CARS - VANS – MINIBUSES - Most of our houses are located in the countryside. Some of them can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways. We therefore advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us, at the time of booking, if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at one of our properties.
