Property description

Casolare Natale is a beautiful, restored farmhouse in the hamlet of Gugliano. The house is encircled by olive groves, vineyards, fruit trees, chestnut woodlands, mountain streams. However, the lively town of Lucca, a 15 minute drive by car, offers everything one could wish for, whether it be fine dining, shopping, sight-seeing or cycling around the ancient walls during the 'passegiata' at sunset. The house is well located for visiting Florence & Siena, the seaside resorts & the beautiful mountain regions of Garfagnana. The farmhouse is set in 10 acres of its own land which is used for the production of olive oil. From the house and swimming pool, one can enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. There is a well-maintained garden and a lovely pool which enjoys sun throughout the day.


Family house: The property has been sympathetically restored retaining original beamed ceilings and antique cotto floors. The interior is comfortable and stylish benefiting from central heating, dishwasher, washing machine, fully well equipped kitchen and satellite TV, unlimited broadband Internet access, exterior & pool lighting.The property is superb for outdoor living as it enjoys sunshine from dawn to dusk. The gardens provide perfect areas for relaxation and for children to play.

Local area: Local Tuscan cook available on request with an English speaking chef. Near the house there is a bar with pizzeria (pizzeria open at weekends only, making the best pizzas cooked over chestnut wood) and deli within walking distance from the house. The local town of Ponte A Moriano which is 10 mins away by car, has several restaurants, banks/post office, deli's with wonderful cooked meals to take away, ice cream bar, cafes, excellent butcher, superb market with fish, local vegetables, local honey, mushrooms, olive oils etc and a large supermarket, plus a supplier of local wines etc

Lucca is a beautiful walled medieval city, which is the birthplace of Puccini. The city is mostly pedestrianised, which is fantastic for cycling and walking. The countryside north of Lucca is breathtaking with many medieval villages perched on wooded hillsides. There are many beautiful palazzos, spas and vineyards to visit in the area. Florence, Pisa and the beaches are all within a short distance. In the summer there are many musical events: Puccini opera at Torre del lago, whilst in Lucca, during July, several of the worlds best musicians play in the amphitheatre. There are also several jazz festivals. There are many superb restaurants within 15 mins of the house. Fungi and truffles are some of the local specialities and olive oil from Lucca is one of the best in the world. One hour's drive north from the house is the beautiful ski resort of Abetone.This is a very popular resort with very good facilities

Other Activities: Nature trails in the hills
