Vacation Property Details
From the windows of the house, you can admire a medieval hunting lodge and a little grey stone church dating back to the year 1000.
The present owners completely restored this lovely house recently, carefully maintaining all the original materials: antique terracotta floor tiles and beamed ceilings.
The restoration resulted in a very attractive country-style property, composed of two buildings, where two groups or families may enjoy a stay together while maintaining their independence, as each house offers its own kitchen, a cosy sitting-room and every bedroom has an en-suite bathroom.
The lovely terraced garden, surrounded by an olive grove, offers guests several places to sit outside and is nicely furnished for outdoor meals.
Both houses offer all modern facilities and comforts such as a well equipped kitchen and an en-suite bathroom in every bedroom. The interiors have been comfortably furnished in a very attractive country-style.

Our Comments This charming large farmhouse is great for two families, good location for sightseeing in this area. Near Lucca, yet easy access to the coast; day trip to Cinque Terre would work too.
