On the first floor there are two bedrooms, a fireplace, a large bathroom and a small service bathroom with the washing machine. All the floors are tiled in terracotta and the walls are painted with originals lime colors.

Surrounded by a garden of about 1600 square meters, completely enclosed by walls, it is the ideal place for your children to play safely, and where your pets can be left free. In the gardens there are centuries-old boxwood hedges, fruit trees and large plants. You enter the property by a gate that leads into an illuminated private avenue, surrounded by box hedges.

The shadows of the trees and the typical evening breezes ensure pleasant and cool temperatures for most of the day. In addition, the thick walls of the property allow a pleasant stay even on the hottest days of summer.

The house has a gas central heating system, satellite TV and Internet Wi-Fi. In the living room is present a satellite television, books and guides.

Villa Orsolini is located in the countryside of Lucca, in the center of the small village Meati. The village is surrounded by greenery at the foot of Mount Orma, dominated by the church of San Michele Arcangelo. The house is surrounded by nature, animal sightings are frequent, particularly several species of birds, hawks, hoopoe, Japanese Nightingale, foxes, badgers and hedgehogs. Nearby there is a breeder of farm animals, which leaves free animals in their precincts during the day, giving a characteristic note to the surrounding environment .

The surrounding places are very beautiful and allow you to walk in complete tranquility away from traffic. A few hundred meters from the Villa start many trails that allow you to explore the nearby hills, from where you can enjoy a full view of Lucca and its plain. For those who love the bike, the owner and his wife (both fans of this sport) will be happy to give you any useful informations on beautiful circuits in the area, both for mountain bikes and normal/racing bikes. In this regard, the owner will rent, at your request, bicycles of any type at specialized stores.
