Property description

Astride a turn in the hillside, known as A Capo, lay a farm with exceptional views (incl. Leaning Tower of Pisa, 12 miles south).

Abandoned, overgrown, collapsed.

Until recently.

A new owner has restored a villa (280 sq m), whose ruins dated back to the 17th century, sparing no expense to use traditional terracotta and chestnut materials.

The result meets all requirements of today's market:
- interior design;
- Sky satellite TV + 5.1 DVD;
- eco-efficient solar-powered under-floor heating;
- hi-speed satellite internet with wi-fi;
- air-conditioning;
- infinity pool;
- 4 lavishly appointed double/twin bedrooms (all en-suite); can sleep 6 more (basic);
- large kitchen, dining room, 50sq m living room;
- stunning south-facing panorama over Pisa and Lucca, towards Florence & Siena. 2 terraces shaded by chestnut pergolas.

10 mins to shops + all major Tuscan culture within 2hrs. Quiet and very private

POOL
Grassed paths from both patios lead up to the 12x6m infinity swimming pool with stunning views across the plain of Lucca to the Pisan mountains, distant Pisa and (on a clear day) the mountains of Elba (some 100 miles away). The facilities include a children's paddling pool, terracotta patio, paved sun terrace and grassed shaded terrace with sun-loungers, bench, wooden tables and chairs. The pool is protected by fencing (1.2m high), hedges, walls and/or gates.

ESTATE

Enjoy some 25 acres of woodlands, olive grove and disused vineyard, with traditional terracing and pathways.

PETS

We and our cats welcome pet-lovers and your pets.

SAN MACARIO, LUCCA & PUCCINI
San Macario's upper village is distinctive: set in a nature reserve, its bell-tower overlooks a stunningly beautiful part of north-west Tuscany, beneath the Apuan Alps and close to the Garfagnana National Park.
Shops in the lower village include a grocery store, several bakeries and a drive-kms-for-his-meat butcher. Two large supermarkets (Co-op and Conad) are within a further 5 minutes drive.
San Macario is 10 minutes drive from Lucca and 14 miles from Pisa (its famous leaning tower and airport visible in the distance). Direct flights to Pisa from the US (New York - Delta), UK, Ireland and many other European airports. Florence Airport is also easily within an hour.
Pisa is well known, and Lucca is a unique medieval walled city overflowing with history, culture and charm - also Puccini's birthplace. July & August see the open air Puccini Opera Festival at nearby Torre del Lago, close to the fashionable Versilia coast - sunny, sandy beaches served by bars & restaurants aplenty. A must.

TOURS & COURSES
We can also include limousine service, cultural tours, cooking/ art/ photography/ film courses.

DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT
A deposit of 25% of the rent is required to secure your booking.
The balance is payable 8 weeks before your arrival date. A security deposit of €500 or 25% of the rent, if greater, is also due 8 weeks prior to the arrival date. If a booking is made less than 8 weeks before the arrival date, 100% plus the security deposit is required to secure the booking.
If you cancel, or fail to pay the balance by the due date, all amounts paid to secure the booking are forfeit, and only the damages deposit will be returned. Security deposits, less any deductions (including expenses) are returnable after the departure date.
Breakages will be recharged on a replacement as new cost basis.
All bank charges are recharged to the account of the tenant at cost.

CONTRACT
Subject to contract .

EXTRAS
Our prices are inclusive of all expenses (electricity allowance of €100pw), except when the total price is below €3,000pw, in respect of which our tariff for check-in-&-out, maid service, utilities (including electricity), laundry and cleaning, which is designed only to recoup our costs, is detailed below.
Electricity - according to meter readings (typically €100 pw, but air/con will increase costs significantly)
Water - €5 per day (winter); €7 per day (summer); €10 per day (summer) - yes, utilities in Tuscany are very expensive!

Daily maid service (2 hours per working weekday - mandatory): €15 per hour

LARGER GROUPS

We charge 7.5% more, if the number exceeds 12. This reflects additional staff costs with larger groups and is based on the number of different people who stay overnight at the villa during the course of your stay.

VALUE

The under-floor heated original terracotta tiling is adorned with Persian and other carpets. Each room includes an antique wardrobe and air-conditioning.

Forte dei Marmi/Viareggio - Italian Riviera

Car: Necessary

- the villa lies on one of the most sought-after hillsides in north west Tuscany.

- Less than 15 mins drive from the outstanding walled city of Lucca (known as the world's largest open-air museum), and in view of The Leaning Tower of Pisa, the south-facing hillside is covered with groves which yield some the world's best olive oil (Lucca DOP) and the vineyards of the Colline Lucchese DOC.

- The upper San Macario in Monte area has also recently become an Nature Reserve.

- The culture and museums of Florence are within an hour's drive (also accessible by train), and San Gimignano and Siena are within 90 minutes.

- The coast and beach resorts of Forte di Marmi, Pietrasanta and Viaréggio are some 15 miles west.

- The area is abundant with bars and restaurants of all levels from pizzerias, basic Tuscan countryside trattorias through to Michelin starred restaurants.

- Sports are also well served, including 7 golf courses within one hour's drive.

- The Garfagnana National Park is just to the North.

Golf: the villa is well suited to golfers. The house is owned by the editor/photographer of the acclaimed Pocket Guide to Golf Courses, and Player's View series

We are extremely well-connected within the Italian golf world, and can arrange tailor-made golf or golf and culture holidays, from a self-catering basis right through to a tour hosted by golf playing/course design/photography professionals, as suits the interests of the party. We organise golf+culture tours of Tuscany: there are 7 courses within 1 hour of the villa, including Versilia on the coast, the famous Ugolino (Italian Open venue) outside Florence and the stunning setting of Poggio dei Medici, north of Florence.

Our disused vineyard has been used as a practice fairway. Discover the underestimated charm of Italian golf, and see the culture of Tuscany - all in one go!

Ski: Skiing is at Abetone, the main ski resort of the Apennine mountains. It is a little over 1 hour's drive away.

A winter holiday in Tuscany is not to be under-estimated: buy your Christmas presents in one of Lucca or Florence's many winter markets (leather, antiques, fashion etc), and see all the cathedrals, art treasures and museums with no queues. We offer low rents for the winter periods, a time in which many over-touristed cities re-discover their true Italian identity.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: Greying, Oxford-educated (classics & organ scholar) Anglo-Irish businessman, primarily with finance-profession background, which has led to career in commercial and social real estate development and investment. I am also a golf course restorer and photo-journalist, with golf guides to my name in book, magazine and video format. I love my family, travel, opera, cooking and wine - and of course restoring old buildings...

Why San Macario in Monte:
The view, the view, the view. The peace, the peace, the peace. The privacy, the privacy, the privacy. Birdsong, birds of prey and the hoot of our owl at night. Plus a traditional restoration, for which the local authority has complimented us, yet behind the scenes we have included all the modern facilities. It all reflects the passion we put into the place. We challenge you to find anything like it...

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Complete peace and privacy with an amazing view, yet only 5 minutes down the hill, and you have all the shops and restaurants... and within 7km of the walls of Lucca, an hour of Florence and all the major Tuscan destinations (Forte dei Marmi jet-set riviera included) easily do-able in day trips, plus only 14 miles from a trans-continentally international airport. For a romantic, but equally family-accommodating Tuscan villa holiday, what more could one want?!
