The Barn has recently been fully renovated and is fully Centrally Heated.Situated in a quite residential area of town, the Property is unique as it offers privacy, a lovely garden and shared Pool within Bagni di Lucca, just 5 minutes walk to restaurants, market, shops. With all modern appliances it comprises 2 Double Bedrooms, reached by external stairs, a Bathroom and large living area with Kitchenette and separate toilet. We own three properties which share the pool and the Barbecue area, but each has it's own outdoor space and multiple units may be booked with us.
The Property is managed after by our friends Paul & Raffaella, who live nearby.
We enjoy spending time at the House and having Family and friends stay over, we have fallen in love with the area around Bagni Di Lucca as it offers us everything we need and gives us chance to relax away from our stressful working lives. Our children love it as we can walk in the nearby forests or paddle around in the River Lima there is always something to occupy them in such a peaceful and beautiful area.
The Owners bought the properties as a place where we could meet up with Family and friends in an area that we love very much. We could play in the garden with the children or take a relaxing walk around the town and stop of for nice drink or share a Pizza, and if it gets too hot we can always cool off in the Pool. We are also very close to Lucca and the wonderful Mediterranean coast with it's marvellous beaches.
The Villa is situated in a quiet residential area of the town and has easy, quick access to the town and all the facilities, so we can walk into town for a Beer and a Pizza and not have to worry about driving. We can also walk into town to visit the twice weekly market or relax in the Park in the centre and get a coffee or ice cream in one of the local Bars. A large shared garden & Pool make this property unique.
The property is a lovely barn conversion, with comfortable, modern furnishings. We really enjoyed using the pool and sitting out on the terrace. The property is in a great location a 5-min walk from Bagni Di Lucca village. Paul, the property manager was very welcoming and helpful. The only reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that the bedrooms were uncomfortably hot at night during our August stay. This is because we felt we couldn't leave the windows open due to the voracious mosquitoes in the area, which bite day or night. Fly screens on the windows would have allowed us to let some air in without fear of more mozzie bites. As I say though, otherwise a wonderful stay in a lovely location.
