Overview

Aquilea Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom house to sleep in 8

This old mansion which was built in the year 1665 lies 17km from Lucca is situated on the hills of Capannori's area. The house is surrounded by silver shining olive trees. La Casa di Cesarina was restored with great care and converted into a perfect holiday home with any comfort. This spot guarantees its guests complete relax and privacy and is an ideal basis to discover the many cultural towns of Tuscany. The house is composed as follows: ground floor, spacious living-dining room with wicker sofa and chairs, two bathroom, a private suite double bedroom with his private bathroom and his living, and a kitchen with the exit into the garden and the access to the swimming pool (13x6mt, deep 1,60mt). There are wooden stairs to the 1st floor: 3 double bedrooms-1 bathroom with shower. The furnishings are well cared and in country style, terracotta tiled floors on the ground floor and wooden tiled floors on the 1st floor.

About Lucca.: Lucca, often addressed as the “Tuscan Open air museum”, has managed to remain a typical Italian town. Still in our days it is the local people who mark the picture of the city and to convey the impression of a peaceful and at the same time happy bustle. Motor cars have been almost completely banned from inside the city walls making it a real pleasure to stroll around. Lucca does not offer a great number of ”monumental” pieces of art, but the town is unique anyway; any tour guide will describe this in a better way than I could. The “Volto Santo” (holy face) in the S. Martino cathedral, for many centuries an important stopover for pilgrims on their way to Rome. In any case Lucca has world fame for her city walls which already at the time of their construction in the 16th century must have been more impressive than any other.

About Lucca (second part)...: Today they have become a very well kept promenade of more than 4 km length, sidelined by huge plane trees thus making it an unforgettable experience to view down from there on the old palaces and churches, the charming gardens and hidden corners. Also unique are the old holly oaks sitting enthroned almost 50 m up high on top of one of the last typical Tuscan family towers. From up here you can explore Lucca again with your eyes. Now a completely new perspective will be experienced: going beyond the roofs and uncountable church towers you will have a view on the charming hills of the Lucchesia and, in the distance, the rising mountains of the Garfagnana in the North and the Monte Pisano in the South – a truly unique panorama. One should not forget to mention the famous Lucchesian Villas with their beautiful gardens one can visit during summer.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here in the summer (2010) and loved it. The pool area is beautiful and completely private with great views overlooking Collodi . There is also a bbq area with fridge/coffee machine and table tennis. The walk to the pool is maybe steep for older people but the grounds were ideal for my kids (7 and 8). The house has all the facilities you need with an impressive master bedroom with more beautiful views. I loved the location – the hills are beautiful and relaxing – but 5 mins from Collodi and maybe 20 mins from Lucca. Some great local restaurants too.
