Vacation Property Details
This villa in Tuscany is large farmhouse that has been recently totally restored to a very high standard. The discerning British owners, who have been tenant themselves at properties in Tuscany for years, have carefully taken into consideration their past experience and furnished the house with all the comforts they were expecting and rarely found in a rental property.
The result is a property restored in keeping with Tuscan tradition of beamed ceilings, antique cotto floor and washed colours, yet at the same time equipped with all modern amenities.
All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is an impressive combination of high tech with appliances and traditional Aga oven cooker. Despite being very close to Lucca - the town centre is only 8 kms away - it is located in a quite setting , a lovely park-like area takes its name from the famous architect who built the neoclassical monumental aqueduct that runs along the boundary of the estate and is popular with those who love walking and jogging in a quiet and historical surrounding.
A particular feature this villa near Lucca is the unusually large - 20 x 5 meters- infinity swimming pool plastered in grey with blue reflexes totally fenced for children's safety. Thank you for not smoking atat this villa.

Flora was an amazing place. It was so beautiful - perfect for our group of friends. There was a lot of common space, yet a lot of privacy if you needed some time to yourself. The villa itself had so much character and history, yet all the modern conveniences. Everything was very clean and new - the linens and towels were lovely and Julia (the cleaning lady) did a fabulous job for us. The pool was fantastic, and the grounds were beautiful. It was such a relaxing environment!! We loved the entire experience, from walking alongside the Aquaduct to explore the neighborhood, to riding bikes into town for groceries. The guidebooks the owners offered were very helpful in terms of both local restaurants and the "how to" of appliances. I will never forget our week at La Flora - it was absolutely perfect.
From D.G. - USA - in 2014-07-19 Flora had the old world charm of Tuscany with modern conveniences. The Villa lived up to our expectations and was in a great location. Pool and grounds were beautiful and great to enjoy after a long day. The villa was very clean and spacious with seperate living areas on all three floors.
From RA - Canada - in 2009-08-19 I am one of the Canadian contingent who rented Flora Sept19-26. The villa is really lovely – we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (The beds were very comfortable as were the bed linens and pillows)
