This attractive stone built farmhouse was completely and immaculately restored. The owner has used authentic Tuscan materials, such as cotto floors, beamed ceilings, and exposed brickwork. The wooden flooring on the second floor is all hand made.The interiors are particularly light and have been equipped with modern comforts such as air-conditioning in the bedrooms and wi-fi internet connection. This property also benefits from a large, flat garden, completely fenced and surrounded by trees, making Broccolo an ideal place for families, the children being able to play around outside without dangers. The swimming pool is located 50 metres from the house, close to a patio with barbecue and pizza oven, ideal for evening meals. On the other side of the house the comfortable kitchen opens onto a veranda, ideal for al fresco meals. The location of the house is very convenient for visiting the main Tuscan towns. It is only 12 Km from the centre of Lucca and, being only 6 Km from a motorway exit, it is also possible to reach Florence in less than 50 minutes, and both Pisa and the beaches in half an hour.
Ground Floor: Covered patio; big kitchen/dining room; sitting room; bathroom with shower. First Floor: 2 double bedrooms; bathroom; single bedroom; bathroom with shower only; small terrace. Basament Floor: Double bedroom; bathroom with shower only. This part of the house has also an independent exit onto the garden.
This property was just as beautiful in real life as the pictures show. In face, I think it was even better. The villa was immaculate. The grounds were beautiful. And the owner, Armondo, was charming. It is evident that Armondo has put a lot of work into making this villa so wonderful. We all enjoyed our stay very much.
A great hub to visit other places. The beaches at Viarregio are only 30 minutes away. Lucca is a 10 minute drive to the city center. Pisa, La Spezia, Firenze and many more towns are easy to reach. The cleaning lady comes twice a week. We were very happy with the airco in the bedrooms. At night there were a lot of mosquitos. The homeowner doesn't speak English, which can be difficult. Overall a great holiday.
