Charming apartment in the hills 5 km north of Lucca. The apartment is the upper one of five apartments in an antic restored farmhouse. With a big shared pool (15,5m * 7m) and stunning views over Lucca. Lies in a peaceful area on the countryside, 1 km off Strada Del Vino, surrounded by wine estates, olive groves and lush rolling hills. Driving distance to Lucca is 9 km.

The apartment is renovated with use of original materials. Very rustic and charming. The size is around 100 m3 with 3 bedrooms and one bathroom with shower. The Apartment is delicate furnished with a combination of antique furniture and modern design items. Modern conveniences like dishwasher, washing machine, espresso machine and internet access is of course present.

The apartment has its own private garden with a beautiful dining table, barbeque and two private sunbeds.

The common pool area is shared with the 4 other apartments, and consist of one big pool, sunbeds and tables. The pool is open from midst of May to early October.

Parking. Baby bed available.

The house is around 500 years old and lies by a villa from the 13th century. Dante Alighieri is said to be living in the villa for a couple of years during his exile from Firenze.

The area contains several wine estates, and good local restaurants within 2 km. The Versilian cost with family friendly beach towns like Lido di Camaiore and Viareggio are 30-40 minutes driving from the apartment. The exclusive resort of Forte dei Marmi is 44 minutes away. Firenze is less than 1 hour. Cinque Terre is less than 1,5 hours away.

The Apartment is an excellent choice for both families with children and adults. You get all the peace and beauty of the countryside, but is still just a short trip from the famous and beautiful town of Lucca. This is an excellent spot for exploring Tuscany, or just to enjoy the local restaurants, visit the nearby wineries or farms selling their excellent olive oil.

The apartment is also a great starting point for bike rides, with lots of hills and small winding roads, from where you can explore the beautiful scenery with small hill villages. The larger roads makes the coast reachable by roadbike. In Lucca there are several shops renting out bikes. Our recommendation is Chrono Bikes which has good service and an friendly English speaking staff.
