Capannori Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms, 7.0 Bathrooms, 12 Sleeps

Villa La Flora is a Tuscan dream come true: inspired by their own vacations in the area, the owners bought and renovated the six-bedroom farmhouse to create a place for guests to enjoy modern luxuries in a historic setting. The rustic architecture, views of the countryside and convenient location close to Lucca will either fulfill your wishes for a quiet retreat or fuel your fantasy of owning your own villa.

Though the kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, take advantage of the Tuscan sun by cooking at the outdoor barbecue and enjoying meals at the covered al fresco dining area. A short walk under a vine-covered trellis leads to the fenced-in pool, which is surrounded by a hedge for privacy and chaise longues for comfort. During the day, explore the neoclassical aqueduct that runs along one side of the property; later, gather around the grand piano for a little night music.

Inside, La Flora’s decor is cozy and contemporary, influenced by the house’s original beamed ceilings and cotto floors. In the living room, plump red sofas, modern artwork and sleek accent furniture are all gathered around a traditional fireplace. Likewise, the dining room is warmed up by a hearth running along one end. The kitchen may be reached by a brick archway, but inside, it’s all modern, with a wall of glossy subway tile and Bulthaup fixtures.

Each of the villa’s six bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom and air conditioning. On the first floor, the master bedroom has a four-poster double bed, dressing room, shared access to a TV room and opens to the garden. A second bedroom has a double bed and access to the TV room, and a third bedroom has two twin beds and a seating area. On the second floor, there are two bedrooms with double beds: one with sitting room and study, and one with a dressing room and shared seating area. The sixth bedroom has two twin beds and a shared seating area.

Though the property offers the quiet of the Tuscan countryside, it’s just over a mile from the shops in the village of Guamo, and 3 miles from the Lucca highway exit. Head into downtown Lucca, just 5 miles away, for an excursion or dinner, or to the beach, 22 miles away, for sun and seafood. For a day trip, drive or take the train to Florence, about 40 miles away.

SWIMMING POOLS - Swimming pools are not open all year. If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with us 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 - Heating is available at an additional charge of 50 Euro per day and 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 that we offer 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.

LOW SLUNG CARS - VANS – MINIBUSES - Most of our houses are located in the countryside. Some of them can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways. We therefore 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 us, at the time of booking, if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at one of our properties.

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

A magical week in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

La Flora was an amazing place. It was so beautiful - perfect for our group of friends. There was a lot of common space, yet a lot of privacy if you needed some time to yourself. The villa itself had so much character and history, yet all the modern conveniences. Everything was very clean and new - the linens and towels were lovely and Julia (the cleaning lady) did a fabulous job for us. The pool was fantastic, and the grounds were beautiful. It was such a relaxing environment!! We loved the entire experience, from walking alongside the Aqueduct to exploring the neighborhood, to riding bikes into town for groceries. The guidebooks the owners offered were very helpful in terms of both local restaurants and the "how to" of appliances. Chef Morena came to the villa and taught us to cook a 5-course meal (including making fresh pasta!) and then served us a beautiful dinner - she was SO much fun and we had a great time. I will never forget our week at La Flora - it was absolutely perfect.

loved every minute

  • 5 of 5

the house was better thanm we ever expected. The fact that each of the bedrooms has its onw full bathroom plus a sitting room made it perfect for the group of people that shared the house. The large kitchen and dining table was great for a large group prepairng and eating meals together. We also used the second large table in the entrance way a lot as that is where the internet conneciton was best. We did not use outdoor eating areas because of mosquitoes but we did use the bar b q several times.

We also used the pool a was heaven to sit there and to swim after a busy day.

also must mention the Gina was amazing as a house manager...although everything was so orgainzied that we did not need to call her.

It was nice that we were walking disctance to a town as well as so close to the aqueduct.

An exceptional Tuscan experience!

  • 5 of 5

When we drove up to the house my first thought was "This is exactly as I imagined it would be!" La Flora is a completely renovated authentic Italian farmhouse. It had the feel of a warm and inviting farmhouse - but with all the updated conveniences (dishwasher, gas stove, washer, dryer and completely renovated bathrooms etc . . .) We found the kitchen to be a wonderful place to cook, eat, enjoy wine and hang out with friends for the evening. The bedrooms each had separate baths which made it easy for several couples to share the house. Towels were plush and fluffy and linens were fresh and clean. We really enjoyed having the housekeeper stop off each morning to clean up the kitchen and make the beds. One small disappointment is that the outdoor seating area was quite far from the kitchen so we never used it. The pool was fabulous - although a bit cool! The grounds were lovely. The location was perfect for a train ride to Florence for the day and shop or sightsee.
