Overview

Piana di Lucca Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Characteristic country house immersed in green fields

Characteristic and typical country house amongst green fields only 2 km from the historical walls of Lucca and close to the most important cities of art in Tuscany.The apartments can be rented separately but both family groups and large groups of friends are welcome: 15 people can be comfortably accommodated. A romantic and comfortable environment and ideal to spend an unforgettable holiday.

The salt water pool (14x7 meters) is at our guests’ disposal and set in garden of two hectares.

The great agricultural house, recently restructured, is a part of a typical 'corte lucchese' and offers four apartments, where one would like to stay longer than just a holiday!

Each apartment prides its own style and personality and all spaces offer lots of natural light, with the comfort of a true home. All the units have a kitchen, lounge room and bathroom; they are equipped with all the accessories, satellite TV, internet wi-fi and air conditioning.

'Encantea'...is: Situated only 2km from the historic centre of Lucca, you’ll find yourself in one of the most beautiful areas West of the Serchio River, between green pastures and beautiful stone houses.

You’ll find tranquillity and grace at Encantea.

There are spaces where you’ll day dream. There is much care and attention to detail: which is the essence of hospitality. It’s beautiful just to sit under the veranda, read a book and fill your eyes with green. Here you’ll find two hectares of green fields, interrupted only by a mirror of blue water.

A comforting magic.

' Encantea ' is the place where one would like to stay longer than just a holiday!

Each accommodation prides it’s own style and personality and all spaces offer lots of natural light, vitality with the comfort of a true home.

You’ll find all you need and more. Travel light, and bring with you only your idea of “total relaxation”

Both Family groups and large groups of friends are welcome: 15 people can be comfortably accommodated.

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.

Our ideas...

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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 best combination of 2: enjoying the lovely city Lucca en relaxing at your apartment.



We do hope to come back ones ("unfortunately" we want to see the whole world, so a second stay at a place is difficult). Therefore we hope that many other people have the chance to enjoy this perfect place!

Great apartment, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fabulous Villa in Lucca

  • 5 of 5

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 apartment was very comfortable and the owners very helpfull and friendly.

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