Further details indoors

The small frontage of the house that overlooks the church square belies the spacious accommodation that is on offer.

The house is unusually large for a property of this type, both in the number of rooms available and their size. For example, the living room area is 45m sq.

Further details outdoors

Although small, Benabbio has everything required for day to day living with a small shop, tobacconists, bar/ restaurant and pizzeria (both of which we can personally recommend!).

During the summer months there is a small outdoor bar with tradional dancing area. Further afield, Bagni di Lucca offers many bars, restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias for different kinds of dining experiences according to your mood.
