Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

Key Info
  • Swimming pool
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car essential
  • No pets allowed

Our small organic farm sits on a hill along Lucca's beautiful northern countryside in the hamlet of Aquilea, with stunning views over the Valdottavo valley, the high peaks of the Apennines, and the National park in the distance. We produce our own olive oil, bake our own bread, make jams from our own fruit trees, prepare home-made yoghurt and classic Italian sauce from our own tomatoes, and grow a variety of vegetables.

Our solar powered and beautifully restored farmhouse has 3 comfortable, fully furnished apartments that will feel like home the moment you step inside! Each has its own entry on a lovely terrace where you can relax and enjoy outdoor dining, including pizza from a brick oven. At our above ground swimming pool, guests can enjoy sunbathing with an incredible view.

The 2-story apartment sleeps 4+2. The ground floor includes a kitchen/eating area and a sitting room with a sofa bed. On the second floor, there are two bedrooms (one has 2 twin beds, but can easily be transformed into a double bedroom) and a large bathroom with shower and a bathtub. A door next to the living room leads to an adjoining studio apartment that has a dinette kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom and sleeps 2. The two apartments can be combined into a large 3-bedroom and 2-bathroom apartment sleeping 6+2.

We have also an other nice,cosy Studio on the ground floor that is not adjoinable to the others and sleeps 2.

Since our 3 apartments can be rented separately as well as combined, updating is difficult and the calendar is not always correct. So, please send us your enquiry if you are interested in staying at our farmhouse.

Our love and respect for the environment can be seen in our organic farm with free-range animals, olive groves, a vegetable garden, and fruit trees. We use solar panels for hot water, to help with the wood boiler heating system, and to heat the swimming pool. We chose an above ground, moveable swimming pool because it has less environmental impact. We have two gazebos near the pool with photovoltaic roofs.

Here a car is really necessary. We have a special agreement with a car rental agency and can help you to rent a car with a cheap rate.

Driver service: If you don't feel like driving, the owner or one of her relatives can be your driver and guide: they can pick you up at the train station in Lucca or at the airport in Pisa or Florence, bring you to the farmhouse to get settled, help you to visit undiscovered surroundings and Tuscan beautiful towns.

Cooking lessons and catering : You can learn how to make classic Italian dishes in our large country kitchen and enjoy your meal in our lovely dining room. The owner speaks excellent English and is a talented cook. You can choose the menu with her, deciding what you would like for your delightful cooking lesson. If you do not feel like cooking, you can enjoy being served authentic Tuscan dinners for €25 per head.

Italian language lessons : We can organize Italian language lessons upon request.

Car or driver, cooking lessons or catering, Italian lessons – the choice is yours. Join us for a true Tuscan vacation.

The Tuscany region

Pisa, Florence, Siena and Volterra can easily be reached in less than an hour by motorway.

It takes the same amount of time to get to Alpi Apuane and the famous marble caves of Carrara, that offered Michelangelo the marble for his masterpieces.

In about 30 minutes you can easily reach the Ponte del Diavolo, in Borgo a Mozzano, the Spa in Bagni di Lucca, Barga with its beautiful cathedral.

Going north you can discover the untouched Garfagnana.

For those who love caves we suggest a visit to the Grotta del Vento and the Antro del Corchia within short distances.

It takes 40 minutes to go to Viareggio or Forte dei Marmi, ideal places for beach and night life lovers.

The Cinque Terre offer a unique and magic scenary with its untouched bays and its blue sea are only an hour away and can also be easily reached by train.

Lucca

We are 11 km from Lucca, in the beautiful countryside in the north of the city and it has a stunning view of the mountains: it faces the vale of Valdottavo and the peaks of Appennini.

It's the ideal place to relax and to go for lovely walks both on foot and by bike. It's therefore ideal for families and or small groups of friends in love with nature with the mountain bike or for motorbikers looking for peace and quiet.

Lucca with its monuments and its famous walls, is only 20 minute away.

The famous Ville Lucchesi with their extraordinary parks are only a few km away, and can be reached in about 15 minutes.

"Great vacation place to stay"

If you want to stay in the hills outside of Lucca this is a great place to stay. We had the 2-bd apartment. It was very comfortable. Great views of the valley. Fabulous hostess (thanks Lella). The coo… More

"Lovely host in an idyllic setting"

Lella is the perfect host. Her communication from the outset was brilliant, answering a never ending list of questions with speed and an ever helpful attitude. The house is at the top of a typically windy Tuscan road (you'll be grateful for the directions provided even if you have a GPS) but the view, oh my! That view. It was just gorgeous. We rented the big apartment and one of the studios. They were really sweet, quite modest but had everything you could need. The outside space was ample, a big table for dining and loungers for sitting out on to gaze off into the horizon!

We visited in April and were keen to get in the hot tub and Lella kindly provided regular temperature updates for us as it was solar powered. The pool looked great but it was just too cold!

The breakfast is a real selling point. It is served in Lella's homely kitchen and is all homemade. Absolutely delicious.

The highlight of stay for me though were Lella's dogs. Please don't be put off if you aren't a dog person though, they keep their distance unless you let it be known that you are happy to give them a cuddle and for those of us missing our dogs at home it really makes a difference to have some canine company on tap.

It's tranquil and relaxing and I can't recommend Lella, her apartments, her breakfasts, her view and her dogs enough.

"A Little Slice of Heaven in the Hills above Lucca"

We LOVED our time at Abbacca-la. The location is quintessential Tuscany....lush and beautiful. Take advantage of all that Lella has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our daily breakfasts and exquisite dinner the day of our arrival. Lella graciously served us fresh, flavorful food and locally produced (next door!) wine as we sat in her warm and cozy kitchen. Our apartment was comfortable and thoughtfully furnished with a well-equipped kitchen, fast wifi, and even a washing machine. Our brief three-day stay provided us with memories to last the rest of our lives.

Dear Joan, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm looking forward to your next visit ! Ciao Lella
