About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private pool, air conditioning, wifi, barbeque

Stay in the heart of the Tuscan countryside at COCCINELLE FARMHOUSE, a short drive from Lucca -just 7 kms or 10 mins by car- to enjoy the lush greenery of the Tuscan countryside being very close to Lucca city centre (and other major Tuscan sites) at the same time!

The gate in the antique stone low wall that encloses the little estate leads you to this two-bedroom farmhouse, immersed in a hillside with stunning views of the area around Lucca. The recently restored interiors strike a balance between picturesque traditional style and sleeker contemporary lines.

A 10 metres pool is the centerpiece of the villa’s outdoor spaces, tucked into olive groves. Spend an afternoon in a chaise longue by the pool, and enjoy an al fresco dinner at the table there or outside the kitchen. For ambience, there’s a fireplace in the living room; for convenience, there’s Wi-Fi access: very fast and super reliable provided by the national phone company.

Coccinelle's interiors pair fresh white walls and furnishings with original stone walls, beamed ceilings and pops of color via cushions and flowers.

ON THE GROUND FLOOR, the living room’s focal point is the large fireplace and the huge french window overlooking the olive groves, once entrance for horses, while the dining room’s big windows open to the garden and pool. The fully equipped kitchen has modern appliances and contemporary lines in its sleek, pale-wood cabinets. A big bathroom with shower and a big laundry room equipped with iron, board and washing machine is also on the ground floor.

ON THE FIRST FLOOR, you’ll find two bedrooms (one with aking size bed and one with two twin beds) plus anbother bathroom with tub and shower.

The villa is located in a walking distance from a tipical famous grocery store selling local harvested fruit and vegetables, local cheeses and salami as well as any kind of items like a small supermarket.

The villa is less than 1 km from other shops, bank, restaurants, pizzerias, ice crema shop, bar and post office in the village of SAN LEONARDO IN TREPONZIO and PIEVE DI COMPITO and just 7 kms from the city centre of Lucca. Take a day trip to the shores of Viareggio beach, about 25 mins away, or to Florence in 35 mins driving or to PISA in just 20 mins. The closest train station is in 7 kms from the villa, less than a 10 min drive.

About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Mrs Sonia purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Beautiful, quiet and tranquil a dream location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our little boy of 5 and his grandparents, the pool was definitely a great place for the whole family to gather and cool down in the heat. The owner lives next door and he was really friendly and helpful if we need him for anything. We had comlplete privacy all day everyday it was brilliant. The quiet location was great. The house was immaculate, beautiful linen in the bedrooms and crockery all lovely. We got used to the times in which the mosquitoes were around and avoided those times outside. Lots of places very accessible by car, Lucca, Pisa, Collodi. Hotter than usual for this time of year but not uncomfortable, we kept the house cool during the day keeping the shutters closed. We would definitely return to the beautiful farmhouse

Nice holiday home near Lucca

  • 4 of 5

We really did enjoy our holiday here. The farmhouse is an attractive home and Stefano, who lives very close by, was very welcoming and helpful. We were close to a bus stop for trips to Lucca and we hired a car as well for a week. There is also a great little mini market 5 mins walk away. We never met Sonia or Christina. It was Lisa who met us on arrival at the house and she was very helpful. The photos on the website are fairly accurate although the cushions and bedding are not as pretty as shown. Everything was clean but the downstairs bathroom is a wet room and the floor gets very wet from the shower. Upstairs has only a handheld shower over the bath. It is not the fault of the owner but we were bitten a lot by mosquitos and my daughter was stung twice by wasps. Insect repellents didn't seem to work. It needs to be said that the house is right beside a pretty noisy road and heavy vehicles used it regularly when we were there. It was hot so we wanted to keep the windows open but quite a few had no mesh or badly fitting mesh panels with gaps which let insects in. Air conditioning is expensive, about a Euro an hour for each machine. We used it sparingly. The twin bedroom is very small and was very hot when we were there. The views were not as spectacular as we expected but the gardens were pretty and well cared for. We enjoyed ourselves here but feel this review will give you a better picture of the farmhouse. We received an email from Sonia giving information about Lucca etc but we had nothing in the villa to tell us directions to local restaurants or shops. We used the Internet to find out although the connection is not that great.

Le Coccinelle amazing farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The house was so quaint and the views were unbelievable. Our favorite was the expansive garden with the beautiful pool and we enjoyed the wine left for us by Francisco. I would recommend Mrs Sonia’s services to friends! (i have been renting several times from her for my trips to Lucca and Florence) Cristina was so helpful and the packets of information and the quick email responses to our questions made us know that we made the right choice in going with this company. We really enjoyed Il Giardinetto (?) in Colle di Compito and the family who runs the nearby deli were wonderfully friendly and very helpful to us. The quiet and views really made our whole trip to Italy!!

What's not to like?

  • 5 of 5

What's not to like? The Villa is beautiful, spacious and immaculate. The hosts are generous with their time and advice. Relax by the pool and enjoy the tremendous view or explore Tuscany from this home base. Many days trips available from this central location (Pisa, Florence, Carrara, Siena, Cinque Terre, etc). Loved it. Coming back in 2017

the Tuscan sun at the coccinelle farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The villa is historic and beautiful. The location is fantastic, the staff and owner gracious and helpful, cannot do enough for your comfort and enjoyment. A perfect location. Near Florence and Cinque Terre as well as the Ligurian Sea and beaches. An easy drive to the historic mountain towns or to wonderful Chianti country. It is even easy to make a run for Rome for a few days. Maybe the best was sitting by or in the pool reading a good book and enjoying a glass of delicious red and the Tuscan sun in complete solitude on the big hill overlooking Lucca
