Overview

About the property

In an airy, elevated position abutting a wine estate and olive groves, A Colli is a spacious farmhouse offering classic Tuscan hospitality. Wood-beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, brick-arched doorways and solid stone walls welcome guests into a centuries-old hilltop home that has been beautifully restored.

Lovely grounds and peaceful surroundings highlight the property, which is perched on a hill above the spectacular city of Lucca. The house and terraces take advantage of the beautiful views, which overlook Lucca and the Apuan Alps, which skirt the wide valley.

The house sprawls across three levels, ensuring ample space. A charming dining room has exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings, along with a cozy fireplace. Doors lead out to the garden and let in the breeze. A country-style kitchen is outfitted with hand-painted accent tiles, along with everything needed for preparing meals.

A nice sitting room is placed in a lofted area with a fireplace on the second floor. Doors open to the garden via an outside staircase. This floor has a double bedroom and twin bedroom, both with ensuite bathrooms with showers. Up another level are three more bedrooms: one double with ensuite bathroom with a shower, and a double bedroom and twin bedroom that share a bathroom with a shower. All bedrooms are furnished with pieces typical to the area, and views from the windows take in the beautiful countryside.

The house is well-designed, allowing guests to spread out and enjoy quiet moments alone. There is also a high-speed Internet connection for those with laptops.

A panoramically-placed swimming pool (18x36 feet) is surrounded by lush, grassy lawn. A pergola-covered patio offers shaded al fresco dining in a delightful setting that takes in the views. Maid service is included in the rental.

A Colli is located below a forested crest, making it feel tucked into the hill while being a short drive from Lucca, only 9 miles away. A small village with food shops is close by. Access to a highway is also very near the property, which makes it an excellent place for touring.

Fantastic, Breathtaking indeed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at A. Colli. The house was everything that was promised.

Stefania was tremendously helpful and friendly! The pool was beautifull, and the view was outstanding.

All the bedrooms were great, beds were comfortable.

I would highly recommend staying here! Again, we had a great time with the whole family (all 10 of us).

Stefania, thank you very much!
