Description

Restored Farmhouse with Pool, 15 minutes from the Walled City of Lucca.

Treat yourself to life in the sunny Tuscan countryside. Our 4 bedroom holiday home complete with in-ground saltwater pool, fruit orchard, wood oven and grape vines is the perfect remedy to city life. Just a 15 minute drive to the historic center of Lucca, and one hour to Florence.

Originally a working farmhouse, La Capraia sits nestled on a 6 acre parcel of green olive groves and a small vineyard. It is flanked by a chestnut forest and a cool mountain stream. Life is slow and easy here. We wake to the sound of birds and we sleep to the sound of the cicadas.

Two walking trails into the woods depart from our property. Our patio features a wood oven stove and jasmine covered pergola with a long table for 8. Fire up the wood oven, roast a pig or make some fresh pizza, then eat, laugh and relax with friends and family.

At night, you'll never see so many stars in the sky, grab a lawn

Two walking trails into the woods depart from our property. Our patio features a wood oven stove and jasmine covered pergola with a long table for 8. Fire up the wood oven, roast a pig or make some fresh pizza, then eat, laugh and relax with friends and family.

At night, you'll never see so many stars in the sky, grab a lawn chair, sit back and watch the night spectacle unfold. Or walk down to the the local bar and pizzeria for some great pizza and beer. Red wine goes for just 60 cents a glass here.

In the morning, enjoy your cappuccinos on the patio with the birds singing and the sun rising high over the historic village of Partigliano. Plan your day trips to Florence, Siena, Lucca or Pisa, all in easy driving distance to La Capraia. Or spend the day at the farmhouse, picking fruit from our orchard, lazing by our new inground pool, or taking a leisurely walk in the surrounding countryside.

We are conveniently located just 1,5 km walk to the lively town of Valdottavo where you will find all the necessary conveniences, 15 minutes drive from the historic center of Lucca and 45 minutes drive from Pisa International Airport.

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY

Sleeps 7 + 1, 3 master bedrooms, one single bedroom that can be converted into a twin upon request. Large living room with fireplace, eat-in kitchen, one bathroom with shower is located on second floor while second full bathroom is located in an annex building outside the house, off of the patio. This bathroom serves as a laundry room as well and has a new 8 k washer and two clothes horses. Outdoor space includes a covered pergola with long 8 person table and chairs for outdoor dinning, wood oven, charcoal BBQ, in-ground pool and sun deck.

Enjoy our new 10m x 5m in-ground saltwater pool with lounge chairs, gazebo, hot water shower and thermic pool cover. We provide pool towels so you need not pack extra bulk in your suitcases. The use of the pool, grounds, and house are for the exclusive use of our guests.

My husband Michel is a computer programmer and I'm a local wedding planner, well connected with the various travel related services in Lucca and the surrounding area. We try to provide a discreet service for our guests that allows for them to enjoy the privacy that our home provides while still having access to local information, like the best wine tours, cooking classes, and local events. We stay at a separate property in Lucca during your stay guaranteeing your privacy while still making ourselves available should help/advice be needed.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Lucca

La Capraia is immersed in the green of the Lucca Hills, on a 6 acre parcel of farmland yet just a 15 minute drive to the walled city of Lucca and 45 minutes to Pisa airport. We are in walking distance of three villages. Valdottavo, the farthest of the three, is just under a 2 km tree shaded walk away and has a pizzeria/bar, caffe, green grocery, ATM, butcher and bakery. The other two villages are of scenic interest and make for a wonderful walk in the morning.
