Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, big kitchen, garden with panoramic view

Le Muricciole,  is part of  an old farmer's house just recently restructured  very thoroughly  with old materials in order to preserve the original atmosphere, but with luxury appliances(for example there are mosquito screens at all the windows). The house is devided in three independent apartments, Le Muricciole, La Campanella (sleeping 4, also on this portal) and our residence.

You will like this place for the following reasons: light, intimacy and peace. This is the perfect place for couples, groups of friends, families with children, and for people who travel for work.

The garden  is overlooking a hill covered with olive orchards and woods. The landscape has remained untouched since the last century. A table, chairs, ombrella and armchairs, allow to eat outside in the setting sun and the light breeze coming from the sea, only 20 km away.

Upon arrival, a big parking with automatic lighting allows to park also big cars. As we live in the same building, aside from short periods of vacation, we will be available for whichever necessity.

On the ground floor there is a spacious kitchen super accessorized for lovers of cooking, a small bathroom, a living room with fireplace, tv and wi-fi, a laundry room. A stone staircase leeds you upstairs where there are three bedrooms, one of which en-suite, and two bathrooms. In each room a double bed can be separated in 2 single beds. One of the bathrooms has a bathtub, the other a big shower. A baby chair  and crib are available on request.

The apartment is cosy and enjoyable also in winter as it has a very efficient floor heating, which is payed extra upon consumption. The price includes parking, electricity and water. An extra fee of 70 euros for cleaning is to be payed in cash at arrival. For longer periods, there is a weekly laundry charge of 30 euros for complete change of linens.

What makes this apartment unique

Down the hill from the house there is a bus stop and a nice restaurant pizzeria, where the chef organises very good cooking courses. walking up the hill there are many beautiful villas and, by the church, a breathtaking view of the whole valley, with the towers of Lucca in the distance.

Only 10 min from the house, there is the river park, where you can sunbathe, picnic, go bike riding or walk. In fact you can bike to town - about 20 minutes, or walk - about 45 minutes. About 2 km away there is a small supermarket with local food, and in the other direction there are a pharmacy, a bank, a pastry shop.

Lucca is only 5 km away, and is really worth seeing, a medieval city famous for its art and culture, birth place of the opera composer Giacomo Puccini. It is surrounded by a circle of walls, unique in the world, where one can go jogging, walking and admire splendid landscapes. The town is almost entirely closed to traffic, it is nice to walk in the narrow streets whith many typical restaurants, museums, artisan and jewellery shops, concerts and exhibits.

The house is situated on the Wine tasting route of the Lucchesian Hills, and only about 15 km from the famous wine village of Montecarlo, where one can visit the wineries.

The sea is 15 minutes away, with famous vacation towns like Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, one of the most exclusive beaches in Italy.There you can rent an ombrella and cabin and swim, have lunch on the beach and experience the Italian idea of a vacation. For lovers of bird-watching, the lake of Massaciuccoli, between Lucca and Viareggio is really beautiful and worth a hike.

Many other places can also be reached in a one-day excursion: Pisa is at 20 km, Florence and Cinque Terre are only about 1 hour away, as Pietrasanta,famous among sculptors from all over the world for the bronze foundries. Not far are the marble mountains, Alpi Apuane, where you can go hiking and visit the marble quarries, and the Appenines for hiking and climbing.

Le Muricciole: beautiful landscape on the hills of Lucca

Spacious lovely multi story house near Lucca

  • 5 of 5

Renovated, well equipped, large home, featuring an impeccable kitchen area for fans of family home cooking. Location is wonderfully close to Lucca, Florence and coastal towns. Quiet neighborhood and safe in-property parking. We traveled with my parents, husband and daughters and everyone loved the house.

Sonia was very welcoming and knowledgeable of activities in the area.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We were very enthusiastic about the beautiful house in an equally beautiful area. At night you only will hear some birds and the olive trees growing. The house is furnished in a loving way and everything is just there. Managed by Sonia in the same loving way. She is helpful in all questions. Thank you very much for the wonderful days.
