Our ideas....: One can take advantage of the silence or create something different each day:
Pedal along the banks of the Serchio River, in the close vicinity of the Park on the River or across the hills on a mountain bike to the sea.
Reach Lucca’s historic centre in 5 minutes, situated in the tree-lined street of the ancient walls,
Visit Lucca’s Villas: splendid architectural witnesses of the nobility of the 1500”s
Explore the outskirts: the Coast of Versilia and the mountains of the Garfagnana, which are half an hour away by car, The “Cinque Terre” approx 50km.
Reach the important cities of Tuscany: Florence, Pisa and Siena.
Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts, the 3rd and 4th weekend of every month, the traveling market every Wednesday and Saturday.“La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and oil tasting.
Our ideas....: Opera: Giacomo Puccini was born right here! There are many opportunities and occasions during the year to listen to the masterpieces of the famous musician.
Summer Festival: A summer release of live concerts of international artists in the historic Napoleon Square.
The” Lucca” September: a month of cultural events, both religious and folklore. The 13th of September is not be missed: the entire city accompanies the “Saint Volto” in an atmospheric and charming procession along the streets of the historic centre.
Murabilia: a market/exhibition of mostly rare plants and flowers, held annually in the month of September on one of the most beautiful bulwark of the cities walls. Enriched by presentations, closer examinations and competitions regarding interesting themes in this sector.
The Feast Day of Saint Zita: a beautiful floral market in the Amphitheatre Square, in memory of the patron saint of the city. Held during the week of 27th April.
Encantea welcomes you with the warmth of the owners. They let you have your holiday, but are near if needed. Beautiful rooms, clean, lovely swimming pool, nice furniture, cosy, just likable. 5 car minutes from Lucca, but in the quiet surroundings.

The location of property fabulous for touring the area and great if you enjoy cycling. Will definitely recommend it to friends and may come again!!
We spent 11 days in Timo with our kids. Everything is renovated with the option for air conditioning. The owners are at the house every day working on the grounds. They are always happy to help you with directions, reference to restaurents,ect... But location,location,location! My kids are 8 and 10 and don't have the patience for long drives. Lucca 5min., Pisa 20 min., Florence 1hre and to the ferry for 5 terre , Sienna 1h30. We were able to leave in the morning for our visits and come back at the house in the afternoon to relax by the pool. Close to the house grocery store, wine store, butcher, pizza and gelateria...all perfect!
Our stay in this villa was wonderful. The villa is perfectly situated in Tuscany that, with a car, we were able to visit the most important Cities of art as well as Florence, Pisa, and Siena. Surrounding restaurants were unbelievably delicious.

The big garden and the swimming pool were fantastic! We hope to return in the future.
