I Gelsomini is a lovely farmhouse, situated only 5 km from Lucca. The house has been restored by the owners, Italian architects, who used it until recently as their home. They successfully preserved the character of the old farmhouse, with its antique cotto floors and beamed ceilings. A covered patio connects the main house to the huge sitting room (100 sq. metres) that has been made out of the original hayloft, whose structure has been maintained yet modernized with parquet floor, fireplace and large windows overlooking the pool. It is also at less than 4 km from the motorway exit and is perfect to explore Tuscany: Florence is less than 50 minutes away; Pisa and the beaches less than 20 minutes; the center of Lucca less than 5 minutes. Lucca is one of the most fascinating cities of Tuscany and I Gelsomini is a typical example of local architecture. On first floor there is a air-conditioning unit to refresh the whole floor.

Accueil très chaleureux du proptiétaire
Maison agréable quelque soit les moments de la journée
Chambres tout à fait correctes
Ein sehr schönes Haus im toskanischen Stil - so wie man sich Italien vorstellt. Da der Preis sich allerdings schon in der höheren Kategorie befindet haben wir etwas mehr Luxus erwartet wie z.B. einen größeren Kühlschrank mit Eiswürfelspender, speziell im großen Raum neben der oberen Terrasse. Dort wäre sicherlich auch die Möglichkeit, einen großen Fernseher an die Wand zu hängen. W-Lan-Verbindung im GANZEN Haus und außerhalb des Hauses(Terrasse)wären auch von Vorteil. Ansonsten liegt das Haus ideal. Alles ist sehr schnell (Auto) zu erreichen und Lucca ist wirlich eine wunderschöne Stadt.
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] A very nice house in Tuscan style - just as you would imagining Italy. However, since the price is already higher in the category, we expected a little more luxury, such as a larger refrigerator with ice dispenser, especially in the large room adjacent to the upper terrace. There would certainly be the possibility to hang a big screen TV on the wall. Wireless Internet connection in the WHOLE house and outside the house (terrace) would also be beneficial. Otherwise, the house is ideal. Everything is easy to reach (by car) and Lucca is really a beautiful city.
