Overview

About the property

House in Bagni di Lucca, Lucca, Tuscany and Florence, Italy - A Haven Of Tranquility Close To Lucca, Pisa, Florence And Beautiful Beaches

Nestling in the wooded hills overlooking the elegant spa town of Bagni di Lucca, Casa Isabella is a great choice for independent-minded and adventurous travellers who want to get off the beaten track. It's situated in the oldest part of the town close to the original spa. It's also near shops, restaurants, ice cream parlours, bars, tennis courts and the river. There is a fantastic swimming pool complex (including three outdoor pools) ten minutes' walk from the house. Casa Isabella has many characteristic features, including chestnut beams and windows, shutters, terracotta floors and Carrara marble surfaces. Because of its elevated position, the house is light and airy, and enjoys a lovely view through the trees over the town’s rooftops, and the surrounding mountains. The area around the house is a walker's paradise and an artist's and photographer's dream. It's also just 30 minutes' drive from the nearest ski resort and cable car - great for cooling off in summer too.

About Mike Johnson

Hello, we are Mike and Katy Johnson. We've been coming to Italy for three decades, and enjoy coming back to this lovely house as often as we can. We like to think of ourselves as independent travellers who prefer to stay not in top-notch hotels or luxury gated villas but real houses surrounded by real Italians. This is what you get at Casa Isabella.

Mike Johnson purchased this house in 2003

Why Mike Johnson chose Bagni di Lucca

If you have a sense of adventure, are self-reliant and believe a trip is what you make of it - this is the place for you. You also have the benefit of wifi for when you need to get back on the grid!
