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. 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.

"Lovely farmhouse apartment near Lucca"
This is a lovely apartment in an old farmhouse on a hillside near Lucca. The apartment is well equipped and has great views. The apartment doesn't have air con so it was very hot in the evenings. The pool is great - really good size, and there only seemed to be one other family staying, so it was never busy. Lovely english lady Corinne (who owns one of the apartments) was a font of local knowledge and extremely friendly/helpful making recommendations for places to visit and good restaurants etc. Definitely need a car here but the drive to Lucca is easy and the secluded surroundings make is lovely and peaceful. Some of the instructions for finding the apartment were incorrect which meant a much longer journey from the airport! I believe they are rectifying this.
Thank you for helping us finding the errors in our driving instructions! The Apartment lies up in the hills which makes it one to two degrees cooler than down in the valley and in Lucca. Normally this fact together with the correct way of venting is sufficient for keeping an ok temperature. Unfortunately you visited Lucca during an extraordinary hot period.
