La Flora is a huge farmhouse that has been recently totally restored to a very high standard. The discerning British owners, who have been tenant themselves at properties in Tuscany for years, have carefully taken into consideration their past experience and furnished the house with all the comforts they were expecting and rarely found in a rental property. The result is a property restored in total respect of the Tuscan tradition with beamed ceilings, antique cotto floor and washed colours-decor yet at the same time equipped with all modern amenities. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is an impressive combination of high tech with Bulthup appliances and traditional Aga oven cooker. Despite being very close to Lucca - the town centre is only 8 kms away - it is located in a quite setting , inside the "Nottolini park" .The area takes its name from the famous architect who built the neoclassical monumental aqueduct that runs along the boundary of the estate and is popular with those who love walking and jogging in a quiet and historical surrounding. A particular feature of La Flora is the unusually large - 20 x 5 meters- infinity swimming pool plastered in grey with blue reflexes totally fenced for children's safety. Thank you for not smoking at La Flora. Please kindly remark that no no bookings are taken for La Flora from principal client below age 25.
