Monsagrati house description

Perched high on a Tuscan hilltop in a quaint Italian hamlet of friendly locals sits this cute Village house, circa 1218 completely restored, well appointed and ready for your true authentic Italian experience. Across from the front entry is the private gated garden with stone path, BBQ, terrace for al fresco dining, a bistro set for those morning cappuccinos or evening wine, cheese, and antipasto refreshments. The view is magnificent of the surrounding hillsides of terraced olive groves and vineyards rolling down to the distant city lights of Lucca in the far-reaching valley below.

The solid rock home, boasting nearly 800 years of history has the original beamed ceilings, stone fireplace, and cotto flooring and is laid out on three levels. The ground floor has the kitchen, dining/sitting room, pantry, utility, and bathroom. The fully equipped kitchen is done in Italian Moderno with granite countertops, built-in fridge, dishwasher and microwave, and an 'eat around' island. Flat screen satellite TV and DVD are easily viewed anywhere in the room. An iPod dock is available so bring it along. The bath is done in Italian modern with raised vessel sink, large walk in shower and surrounded in Italian marble. A washer/dryer is provided in the utility room for small capacity incidentals. The second level has one double bedroom and a daybed/sitting area for additional sleeping for one. The top floor is reserved for only the large master bedroom with king sized bed.

The road up the hill to the hamlet, Monsagrati Alto, is off the main road from North Lucca, connecting Lucca to the coast at Camaiore, where you'll find the chic resort/beach town Viareggio, one of the Italian Rivieras most popular vacation spots. With Monsagrati (our town) located about half way between Lucca and the coast, you are 15 to 20 minutes from either destination. Not far to the north is the famous Cinque Terre, Tuscany's version of the Almafi coast, worth a day's adventure. From Lucca, the train, or the Autostrad (expressway), will get you to Florence in about 45 minutes. Florence is a destination not to be missed as one could spend weeks and not see all the important art, museums, and cathedrals in this capital city of Tuscany. All important destinations can be reached via Eurostar (fast train) from Florence easily and quickly. Pisa, and its' airport, is only 45 minutes. Flying into Pisa or Florence is easy as both airports are small and convenient and offer rental cars.

Our Italian (who speaks English) Property Manager in Lucca, will be your contact to help with getting you settled into the house and making sure your stay is as comfortable as possible and be a contact for you should anything come up unexpectedly.

Many restaurants are available both in Monsagrati and neighboring towns along the main road toward Lucca. Of course, once inside the famous walled city there are as many restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues as you could want. Many 'Big Name' concerts are held in June and all through July. The tops of the walls are a huge circular park that can be walked, jogged or cycled with rental bikes, affording a bird's eye view down into the walled city. It's always a treat to come back up to your quiet peaceful and authentic hilltop village home for the true Italian experience!

We have a few simple (but firm) rules:
