Property description
Ferchia is a peaceful hillside hamlet near Lucca, recently lovingly restored into self-catering holiday homes from a 300 year old farmhouse and its estate. The conversion is of the highest standard, retaining period features along with modern facilities such as underfloor heating, high quality kitchens and bathrooms. Within extensive wooded and terraced grounds are three houses, which altogether can sleep 21 people, or any combination from 2 upwards. All rooms have spectacular views, the sitting rooms are large with open Tuscan fireplaces/woodburners and there are chestnut beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors throughout. Ferchia is private and secluded but not isolated. There is a 13 metre swimming pool with solar panel and shower. The air is clear, our own spring water pure; above all there is no noise or light pollution. Guests returning from a holiday here are relaxed, refreshed and de-stressed and have found it to be the most perfect base for exploring this beautiful region.

Large part of Farmhouse (4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 9)

A huge sitting room, 22ft square with a large Tuscan fireplace, comfy sofas and large sofa bed. There is a quarter sized snooker table and a cupboard filled with books, information, games, CD player etc. This room leads onto a large terrace.
The spacious 22ft long kitchen is fully fitted in chestnut with granite worktops, with double sink, hob, oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and a 12ft long antique mahogany dining table with fourteen matching chestnut chairs. All cutlery, utensils, crockery, glasses etc are provided. This room leads onto two large terraces.
Four large bedrooms, two of which have double beds, one with three single 3ft beds and one with two 3ft beds. The bedroom furniture comprises chests of drawers, cabinets, chairs and hanging rails.
Two tiled bathrooms, with one having a bath with shower over, bidet, WC and wash basin and the other having shower cubicle, WC and wash basin. Please note. We charge per person per week. £300 is not for the whole apartment

Accessibility
Although set in wooded hills which are terraced, we have built a long access ramp so that wheelchair users can stay in the smaller part of the main farmhouse, where the bedrooms, bathroom and dining kitchen are all on the sun terrace level.
Babies are welcome, we have a cot, high chair and playpen available.

Outside
At the back of the house is the utility room, complete with a washing machine, double sink unit and the boiler. There are tiled terraces leading from the large car park, in front of and behind the main house, and on to the Metato and the swimming pool where there are further tiled sun terraces. Sun beds, sun umbrellas, tables and chairs are all at the property.
The pool is 40 feet long by 20 feet wide, is partially heated by a solar panel and is 1.5m deep throughout. It is shared between the guests of our houses only.
Our land covers about 30 acres, all wooded and terraced. The views from all points are superb, and you can even watch buzzard hunting in the valley below you when on the terraces.
There is a full time gardener, who cuts the grass and waters the flowers in this very verdant part of the world.

All the floors (except the first floor in the metato) are tiled, with underfloor heating throughout. The walls are white rendered and the ceilings traditional chestnut beams and terracotta tiles. All doors and windows are in planed and polished chestnut with wooden shutters and retractable insect mesh screens.
There is a boules court near the swimming pool and a snooker table in the larger part of the main house.
Our caretaker lives in the next house to us, a quarter of a mile away, should you have need of anything.
