Property description

'CASALE DELLE FARFALLE' is situeted in S. Andrea, a little very charming village in the top of a hill at 10 km from the walls of the ancient town of Lucca. It is called 'Il borgo delle camelie' because in every garden, villa or field there are some camelias. In March they are full of coloured flowers and so people celebrate this with a fair during four weekends. People can visit the most important villas and see some camelias aged also 200 years, tasting the first italian tea extracted from these local trees. Saint Andrea is famous for its olive oil and natural spring.

The country house made by stones, has been completely renovated in December 2011. In front of it there is a large fenced terrace with an attractive landscape of the hills around it. Outside there is a long table with chairs and a barbecue for 'al fresco' dining. On one side of the house you find a fenced garden with a pool semi out of the ground (meters 9,15 x 4,60, depth 1,30). The private garden is about 500 mq. and it's lighted, too. In it you'll find: three tables with chairs and beach umbrellas, six beds to bask in the sun. There is a shower with warm and cold water, a refrigerator for your drinks and a wooden changing room. For children a swing and a slide. Close to the house there is a private parking. Few steps and you can eat in a lovely pizzeria trattoria with typical Tuscan specialties. In the house there are two mountain bikes available for your use. At the end of October in Lucca there is the fair of COMICS for the lovers and confectioners of this sector.
