Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Macennere is a lovely stone-built farmhouse located in a very secluded and tranquil position in the hills of Lucca. The area, Forci, is one of the most beautiful in all the Luccan countryside. Despite its quiet location, the property is also just 15 minutes by car from the centre of Lucca. From the house and the garden, surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees, there are wonderful views over the countryside, from the Apuan Alps down to the plain of Lucca. The house has been recently restored and very tastefully furnished by a British interior decorator for the use of his family and is now available for rent when they are not in residence. He has used authentic Tuscan materials, such as antique cotto floors and beamed ceilings, and furnished it in a very attractive rustic, yet elegant style. Both to the front and back of the house there are outside eating areas with a built-in barbecue. The house has been featured in a 14-page article in the October 1996 edition of the magazine “The World of Interiors” and in a 5-page review in one April 2005 issue of "The Times" magazine. The 1,5 kilometres road, down a forest track leading to the house, is not suitable for cars with low suspensions or for nervous drivers.
