'Casa Argentina' located in the hills of Matraia, just a few miles from the city of Lucca in the middle of the green, but a few hundred meters from the village,

This is a portion of a farmhouse belonging to the same property, carefully restored in respect of materials and the rural tradition of the past.

It’s composed of a large living room with kitchen, two bathrooms, a laundry and storage room with two or three bedrooms if necessary. The beds, therefore, can vary from four to six, thus adapting to an average family or a small group of friends.

There is a raised type swimming pool measuring 3,40x6,70 meters.

The house is equipped with everything necessary for comfort, from cooking utensils to bed linen and towels.

Outside, paved in terracotta with table and chairs, ancient wood oven, surrounded by garden and a large olive grove in a panoramic, quiet and sunny.

Very confortable, elegant and romantic

The road for arrive to "Casa Argentina" from the village of Matraia is steep but the place is worth it!

wunderschöne Aussichten

Wunderschöne Aussichten

In diesem geräumigen und bei Hitze angenehm kühlen Ferienhaus hoch oben im Dorf Matraia mit wunderbarem Blick ins Tal haben wir, eine Familie mit drei größeren Kindern zwischen 13 und 17 Jahren und einem Hund, zwei schöne Ferienwochen verbracht. Die Zimmer sind großzügig und gut aufgeteilt (z. B. ein etwas separat gelegenes Zimmer mit zwei Einzelbetten und angrenzendem Bad), die Bäder sehr hübsch gestaltet. Es gibt eine gemütliche Terrasse und rund um den Pool eine schöne, ganz ungestörte große Liegewiese mit tollem Ausblick. Das Haus überzeugt durch seine ruhige Lage fernab des Durchgangsverkehrs. Trotzdem bietet es - abgesehen von den für Flachländer gewöhnungsbedürftigen Zufahrtswegen durch die toskanischen Berge - einen guten Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge nach Lucca (ca. 20 min), Pisa (ca. 40 min), Florenz (1h) oder ans Meer (ca. 30 min). Im Dorf gibt es fußläufig einen kleinen Laden mit Brot, Gemüse und Obst etc. oder man fährt zum größeren Einkauf nach Lucca in den Supermarkt. Außerdem kann man in Matreia bei schönem Talblick wunderbar essen gehen. Wir wurden, auch als wir erst abends spät anreisen konnten, in jeder Hinsicht wunderbar von der Vermieterin und ihrer Familie betreut.

Two wonderful weeks in this charming house, which is in the charming Lucchese hills, close to Firenze or the sea. At 5 minutes, the best wine of Italy (Tenuta di Valgiano), "what else"?! We will come back soon with our two children, many thanks Mrs Lazarini!

"Tout était parfait: propreté, calme absolue, vue et paysage magnifiques. Seul bémol: accès un peu difficile mais lieu qui vaut le détour pour découvrir la campagne typique toscane."

Near the farmhouse, a few meters away is the village of Matraia where you can find two restaurants where you can eat the typical cuisine of Lucca. ('Ristorante Le Colonne' e 'Trattoria da Serafino').

Matraia is a little village perched on the hills with a spectacular view overlooking the Lucca valley. Famous for precious vineyards and olive groves, Matraia is renowned for its good wine and olive oil that during the 'sagra', the local feast held in July, can be tasted along with typical cuisine. In the village you can find a good restaurant and pizzeria only 5 minutes away from the property.
