Overview

Lucca Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Characteristic country house immersed in green fields

Characteristic and typical country house amongst green fields only 2 km from the historical walls of Lucca and close to the most important cities of art in Tuscany.The apartments can be rented separately but both family groups and large groups of friends are welcome: 15 people can be comfortably accommodated. A romantic and comfortable environment and ideal to spend an unforgettable holiday.

The salt water pool (14x7 meters) is at our guests’ disposal and set in garden of two hectares.

The great agricultural house, recently restructured, is a part of a typical 'corte lucchese' and offers four apartments, where one would like to stay longer than just a holiday!

Each apartment prides its own style and personality and all spaces offer lots of natural light, with the comfort of a true home. All the units have a kitchen, lounge room and bathroom; they are equipped with all the accessories, TV and internet wi-fi.

'Encantea'...is: Situated only 2km from the historic centre of Lucca, you’ll find yourself in one of the most beautiful areas West of the Serchio River, between green pastures and beautiful stone houses.

You’ll find tranquillity and grace at Encantea.

There are spaces where you’ll day dream. There is much care and attention to detail: which is the essence of hospitality. It’s beautiful just to sit under the veranda, read a book and fill your eyes with green. Here you’ll find two hectares of green fields, interrupted only by a mirror of blue water.

A comforting magic.

' Encantea ' is the place where one would like to stay longer than just a holiday!

Each accommodation prides it’s own style and personality and all spaces offer lots of natural light, vitality with the comfort of a true home.

You’ll find all you need and more. Travel light, and bring with you only your idea of “total relaxation”

Both Family groups and large groups of friends are welcome: 15 people can be comfortably accommodated.

Our ideas....: One can take advantage of the silence or create something different each day:

Pedal along the banks of the Serchio River, in the close vicinity of the Park on the River or across the hills on a mountain bike to the sea.

Reach Lucca’s historic centre in 5 minutes, situated in the tree-lined street of the ancient walls,

Visit Lucca’s Villas: splendid architectural witnesses of the nobility of the 1500”s

Explore the outskirts: the Coast of Versilia and the mountains of the Garfagnana, which are half an hour away by car, The “Cinque Terre” approx 50km.

Reach the important cities of Tuscany: Florence, Pisa and Siena.

Our ideas...

Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts, the 3rd and 4th weekend of every month, the traveling market every Wednesday and Saturday.“La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and oil tasting.

Our ideas....: Opera: Giacomo Puccini was born right here! There are many opportunities and occasions during the year to listen to the masterpieces of the famous musician.

Summer Festival: A summer release of live concerts of international artists in the historic Napoleon Square.

The” Lucca” September: a month of cultural events, both religious and folklore. The 13th of September is not be missed: the entire city accompanies the “Saint Volto” in an atmospheric and charming procession along the streets of the historic centre.

Murabilia: a market/exhibition of mostly rare plants and flowers, held annually in the month of September on one of the most beautiful bulwark of the cities walls. Enriched by presentations, closer examinations and competitions regarding interesting themes in this sector.

The Feast Day of Saint Zita: a beautiful floral market in the Amphitheatre Square, in memory of the patron saint of the city. Held during the week of 27th April.

Melissa apartment

  • 5 of 5
The Melissa was everything that we expected and more. The setting was lovely, the pool relaxing with beautiful gardens. The apartment was really nice and clean. Anything we wanted to know about the area was answered by the owners who were really nice. Would recommend this to anybody. Good value for money. Thought lucca and surrounding area were lovely.

Beautiful garden and pool

  • 3 of 5
The whole property was very well maintained but the owners' obvious pride in the complex came with a very long list of rules which made it rather difficult to relax - these included moving the table into the driveway to the parking area if we needed shade rather than simply moving the paresol; and not wearing hair grips in the pool. Having checked beforehand we were disappointed to find we could not have walked into Lucca due to the busy road (and no pavements), but there was a diversion in operation which may have been the reason for all the traffic on what looked like it should have been a quiet country road.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you have complained about the busy road but at that time, being closed the main road for work in progress, all traffic had been diverted by way of Piagge.
Regarding the rules, it is normal to give indications to maintain all
efficient and clean. The pool is fed with water treated with salt and is not recommended
to use metal objects to prevent the formation of rust on the bottom of it.

Giovanna

A Wonderful House with so much to offer

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing week! Our accommodation exceeded our expectations, delightful surroundings, fantastic pool, outside eating area was so welcome for all times of the day. Our hosts were exceptionally helpful, the location was perfect for visiting Lucca, Pisa, and a variety of beaches.
I would recommend this accommodation to friends and you!

Would love to go back again and maybe if not with our family we would rent an apartment within Encantea

Our stay in Melissa

  • 4 of 5
There were 4 of us (adults) staying in this lovely 2 bedroom apt. Plenty of room and the grounds are beautiful.

It was close to Lucca but far enough out of the city center for peace and quite.
The apt. was very clean. Only suggestion was to put up small selves in both bathrooms.

The owners are available for any questions you may have and very helpful for restaurant suggestions etc.

We could easily do day trips to Pisa and Florence from here....we had a car, but could be done by train.

I would recommend Encanto for a stay in this part of Tuscany.

A wonderfull property

  • 5 of 5
We were three couples from Norway who arrived in Lucca to spend a week in one of Giovanna and Francescos apartments. Melissa was a great apartment with everything we needed to thrive. Only 20 minutes walk to Lucca, a beautiful city with many exciting things to do and see. We had a great week and we might come back another time.
