Recently restored, the house has all modern conveniences whilst maintaining its original Tuscan style and charm. There are 2 bedrooms with bathrooms en suite on the lower floor with access directly into the garden. Upstairs there is a very light spacious sitting/dining room with a characteristic Tuscan fireplace. The kitchen is well equipped with a lovely picture window looking out to the surrounding hills. Leading out of the kitchen is a terrace for al fresco eating.
Podere Consani lies in an idyllic setting amongst well-tended natural gardens,(lavender,roses, lemons and herbs) that lead into the adjacent olive groves, vineyard & woodland, in the hills between Lucca and the coast. The house shares a swimming pool with the one other cottage and the English-speaking owners who live in the main house. The owners take great care to ensure guests are happy during their stay whilst respecting their privacy. They produce their own wine and olive oil.
Nature-lovers,painters and walkers alike cannot fail to enjoy the wonderful surroundings and lovely views and although Podere Consani is set in this oasis of peace, it is however only 15 minutes before the majestic walls of Lucca come into sight.
Within a few minutes walk is the Podere Consani stud where it is possible for children to ride the lovely pony 'Chocolate' or feed the little goats.
There is the possibility to have cooking lessons or a meal cooked for you in the house.
