This beautiful country house has been meticulously restored and brought back to life after a long and painstaking restoration achieved over a number of years by very caring owners. New to the rental market in 2014, it is a very welcoming and charming place.
Each room in the villa is comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated in beautiful colors and really great fabrics. The living room is large with a few separate seating areas. The TV/game room is a wonderful space, a few steps up from the living room. It features a large screen TV and plenty of seating. There is WiFi in all areas of the house.
Throughout the villa, there are surprising little areas for reading, writing, daydreaming or just enjoying a little quiet time. The same holds true for the outside areas, beautifully maintained and offering many different ways to experience the remarkable views that the Villa commands over the Lucca valley.
The dining room has a great table and easily accommodates eight in a cozy setting which features an exact restoration of the antique fireplace. There are double doors leading out to a covered terrace which also has a dining table and chairs (and a wonderful view as an added bonus). The kitchen maintains its rustic charm but is fully equipped with all conveniences (stove, oven, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, etc.) as well as a full complement of dining and serving pieces. There is a utility room off the kitchen with washer, drying racks, cleaning implements, iron and ironing board. This floor also contains a full bath with shower.
The second floor of the Villa houses all four bedrooms, making them ever so peaceful and private. The master bedroom has its own bath. It's a large corner room with great views over the property.
The other three bedrooms on this floor are each uniquely decorated with beautiful colors and fabrics, antique armoires, dressers and writing tables, and comfy upholstered chairs.
The 'green room' has a double bed and views out onto the Lucca valley. The very large, light and airy hall bathroom is shared by the three bedrooms. It has a double sink, toilet, bidet, and large soaking tub.
The Villa is located in a tranqil and picturesque area of Tuscany, just 5 Kms northwest of Lucca. The outdoor areas are very well maintained with an abundance of flowers, fruit trees, shrubs and shaded areas for relaxing. A lovely swimming pool (10x5 mt) is located in the middle of the olive grove, with many shady and natural areas, with stunning views on the rolling slopes all around.
The Villa is in a great position for seeing other parts of Tuscany. The walled city of Lucca is about 10 minutes away by car, Florence about one hour, Pisa airport and the Tuscan shore about a half hour. Lucca has train and bus stations, both with regular service to many points within Tuscany and beyond.
We all loved our stay in your beautiful villa and we are happy to recommend it; a real gem. The house has been beautifully restored and decorated in the Tuscan style. The house is on a ridge looking down over surrounding olive and vine-covered valleys and hills. There are sweeping views from the front terrace and pool area of other hilltop villas and down onto the plains below. The location is so central for exploring wonderful Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Livorno , the Mediterranean coast and mountains.
The house was perfect for the hot weather, able to be closed up during the day and opened up every night when the cool breezes come in. The pool was excellent with sun lounges and umbrellas. We could not have survived without it when it is too hot during the day for extended sightseeing.
Thank you both for your hospitality.
Wir 8 Personen (2 Familien), hatten einen erholsamen Urlaub. Aufgrund der grossen Hitze, genossen wir die Abgeschiedenheit sowie die Idylle. Sehr schönes Landhaus im typischen toskanischen Stil. Die Eigentümer sind sehr nett und sehr zuvorkommend. Die sehr schöne Pool-Anlage wurde vom Pool-Meister täglich sehr diskret und sauber gereinigt. Auch die Putzfrau welche das grosse Haus zwei Mal pro Woche wieder in Schwung brachte war äusserst herzlich. Ideal für Personen welche die Ruhe sowie die Abgeschiedenheit suchen. Einkäufe oder Ausflüge müssen mit dem Auto vorgenommen werden.
The property is located in a quiet, panoramic and very green area, at just 5 Kms northwest of the walled town of Lucca, immersed in the own olive grove. A few beautiful paths start directly at the house from where it is possible to reach safe and scenic walking itineraries amidst olive trees, vineyards, and all around the hills dotted of few old buses, old churches, medieval hamlets. Through the riverside path it is possible to reach Lucca, by walking or by bicycle, avoiding all the traffic. Two of the best restaurants of the region are within 2 Kms from the house, and one lovely typical Tuscan 'Trattoria' is at 10-15 min walking. The shore, with a number of beach clubs, is reachable in 30 minutes drive. Pisa airport is at 30 min, Florence at 1h, the 5 Terre at 1h and 1/2 easy drive.
