Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Casa Dell' Aqua is so called due to the ancient well in the garden. It is situated on a famous hill known as "La Bracolleria", which is host to seven small villages, olive groves, vineyards and farms.
The Lucca hills are known for the quality of their wine and particularly olives and olive oil. There are fantastic views over the plain to Lucca, and over the Apuane Mountains to the North. The famous art city of Lucca is only a few kilometres away, and the lovely villages of the Media Valley and the dramatic mountain scenery of the Garfagnana are also nearby.
The house has been only recently restored and has a large olive grove around it. There is a colourful garden and terraces, on one of which an out of ground pool has been erected, great for cooling off or playing in.
Nearby, within 5 minutes walk, there is a well known restaurant, and many others in the locality. There are also important churches and villages which can be visited on foot.
Casa Dell'Aqua is a big house with 4 bedrooms, 2 large doubles, 1 single, and 1 twin which has space for 3 people. This bedroom has a double bunk-bed with a single bunk below it.
There is a large very bright living room with a dining area and stone log fireplace, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen with table, and a utility room. There is a comfortable atmosphere about the old house, with many features including chestnut beams and terracotta ceilings, and lovely tiled floors.
