Remarkable Villa Al Palazzaccio, surrounded by olive trees with a private pool

Bedrooms 6
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

6 Bedrooms, 6.0 Bathrooms, 12 Sleeps

With orange stucco walls and green shutters, this traditional villa in the hills northwest of Lucca gives guests a cheery welcome to their own corner of the Tuscan countryside. Olive groves provide quiet surroundings, while Al Palazzaccio’s spacious rooms have antique character. But there’s no shortage of modern comforts, either, from bedroom fans to Wi-Fi access.

A gravel drive and manicured garden signal the approach to Al Palazzaccio, and outdoor furniture is tucked throughout the grounds for al fresco dining or lounging. Cook dinner on the portable grill, then dine on the loggia or under the vine-covered pergola. The pool is surrounded by a wide stone deck with plenty of seating. Inside, the villa is equipped with Wi-Fi, and a fan in each bedroom for warm summer nights.

The heart of the villa is the living room, where cream-colored walls, wood beamed ceilings, a fireplace and a floral sofa lend cozy charm. The kitchen has the same warm-toned walls, plus modern appliances and a marble backsplash. It’s open to the dining room, which has a long farmhouse-style table and access to the garden through a pair of French doors.

The master bedroom on the second floor has a queen bed, en-suite bathroom, spacious sitting area with fireplace and even a private terrace. On the same floor, there’s a bedroom with a single bed, pull-out bed and en-suite bathroom. Upstairs, there’s one bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom and two bedrooms with two twin beds: one with an en-suite bathroom and private terrace, and one with a shared bathroom. The sixth bedroom has a single bed and shared bathroom.

Al Palazzaccio is 5 minutes from the nearest restaurants, and 10 minutes from the shops and amenities in the village of Cappella. Fit in a game of tennis at the court just over 4 miles away, or have a swim in the Mediterranean at the beach, 19 miles away. Explore the city of Lucca, just under 4 miles away, or take a drive to Pisa, 22 miles away, or Florence, 47 miles away.

Additional Information

Vehicles Due to the fact that many properties in this area can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways, we advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with your Villa Specialist at the time of booking if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at a property in this area.

Swimming If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with your Villa Specialist that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients’ use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.

Heating Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

Internet Connection Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services

Advertised rates may vary according to the season and duration of stay
