This lovely farmhouse is located in the Maulina hills, famous for their wine and also as one of the most exclusive residential areas around Lucca. It is situated on the same estate as Villa Clara, a villa we have been succesfully renting for years, and used to be one of the farmers’ houses. It has been totally restored, and the interiors have been decorated with old Tuscan furniture to preserve the original character. One of the rooms has facilities for disabled guests and all bedrooms are en-suite. The garden and swimming pool have been positioned on the opposite side of Villa Clara to assure total privacy. The area is ideal for people looking for a quiet location, yet at same time wishing to be close to a town. In fact, the walled medieval town of Lucca is only 10 minutes away. Also, as it is only 6 km from the nearest motorway exit, it is an ideal base for visiting the main towns of Tuscany. There is a tennis club within walking distance of the house. The helpful caretakers live on the estate, in a separate apartment.

Casa Rosa is a charming villa situated in pleasant surroundings, just a few minutes’ drive from Lucca. Overall I found it to be a well-kept and clean property. During our stay we enjoyed the large garden and the pool area which is equipped with sun beds. In front of the house there is a porch with a shaded table offering seats for all guests.
The villa was excellent as was the lady who welcomed us and was our contact during the stay. The villa itself and the pool were perfect for our party of 12 with its pool and facilities to eat indoors or out. Having all those bathrooms was fantastic so there was never any queuing. Everything was wonderfully clean and welcoming. The furnishings could perhaps do with a bit of an uplift but are perfectly comfortable. Overall an excellent choice for a large party.
