Nestled on top of a wonderful hill only few kms north of Lucca,
this elegant casolare gives you the most authentic experience of a
With a stunning panorama of the valley leading to Lucca, Florence and Pisa, on a clear day you can even see the sea. This is the most valuable location around Lucca. A little corner of paradise which seems to be so far from everything, deep in a silent, quiet and green countryside among olive trees, birds and butterflies, violets at the beginning of spring, cyclamens at the beginning of the fall season and the magic red “albatrelle” to color your winter days... it is indeed so close to Lucca.
Everything required by a normal modern life is in a short 10 minute drive. Beautiful landscape to live: these are the hills of mountain-bikers, trail-runners and walkers. Silence lovers: here you can find your soul and your mind. Perfect place for passionate yoga and meditation.
The location provides a quiet retreat in the heart of a wonderful unique countryside, only 9 km way from the gorgeous walled town of Lucca, which has a wide selection of everything you may need from restaurants along with bars, shops, supermarkets and all other amenities like cinemas, theatre, concerts…
This elegant countryside house has been bought from the current
owners in 2004. It was nothing more than few ruined stones in the
middle of a dark wood on the top of a hill where neither a road
arrived. The owners, me and my sister Olivia, saw here something
which could become a dream! It was a long long and hard job!! At

has been a great experience seeing day by day the transformation
from nothing to one of the most exclusive stone built house in
the whole area. Now, September 2016 we have a wonderful property
where our parents have lived for 9 years with our beagle Romeo.
We have rented it out few weeks during the summer but now it’s
time to sell it. You know, life changes.
It is sad, but we are now ready to give it to someone else. We
would love to have someone who will love it as we did and still
The house does not come with an enormous size but it is perfectly proportioned and split over 2 floors. It is surrounded by (about) 1 hectare of carefully maintained land with wonderfully landscaped gardens (with well tended lavender, sage, rosemary, rose bushes and about 100 producing olive trees plus some perfectly kept wood) and a wide swimming pool (10m x 5m) allowing clear views of the surrounding valleys hills and mountains.
The garden goes around the whole house. It offers:
This is a beautiful, highly desirable country house. Although
wonderfully traditional, the property has been renovated to an
extremely high standard with all the comfort that a modern living
involves. Superbly well kept. No maintenance works needed. Ready
to be lived. Ready to be sold.
