About the Property

Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

If you are looking for a comfortable home base from which to explore the timeless beauty of Tuscany, look no further! We offer spacious accommodations in the beautiful Italian countryside community of Gattaiola, surrounded by vineyards and just minutes from the medieval walled city of Lucca. This year while staying at the villa, we had day trips to Carrara, Sestri Levante, Cortona, Orvieto, Assisi, Deruta, and Cinque Terre and Florence and Pisa. The villa is centrally located providing ease of travel by bus, car or train.

Originally an active farm, this rustic, three-story villa on approximately 12 hillside acres is furnished with Italian antiques and features a country kitchen (complete with original brick-fire oven) as well as six bedrooms, a dining/living area and two recently remodeled bathrooms. Simple in style and design, the farm villa can easily accommodate groups of up to 10 guests, with plenty of parking and spacious grounds for outdoor activities.

Centrally located in the heart of Tuscany. the villa offers convenient travel access to popular destinations such as Florence, Pisa, The Cinque Terre and the coastal resort of Viareggio.


For winter travelers, the Italian ski chalets of Abetone are within roughly an hour's drive. Other convenient activities include biking through the hills to Pisa, hiking in the Alpuan Alps, and sightseeing in Lucca and its outlying villages.

Bicycle groups, motorcycle groups, running groups, church groups, families, couples with children would thoroughly enjoy the spacious countryside and 3 story house.

Car: Recommended

This property is located in the beautiful countryside of Gattaiola, just minutes to the town of Lucca and a short drive to the beaches in Viarreggio. Tourist attractions galore, and usually done with a day trip by car. This is a great location for biking enthusiasts as well as hiking groups since the Pisa hills are, literally, out your door. Families with children, groups and religious retreats are encouraged. Please don't hesitate to contact me at 831-588-6705 with questions.

Must see: Florence, Pisa, Cortona, Montepuliciano, Montereggioni, San Gimingnano, Siena, Cinque Terre and Carrara.

 

Owner info

About the owner: My cousins and I inherited this property in 2003. We are Italian but born and raised in California. In 2003, the farmhouse became our 'project' to bring it back to it's original glory. We invite you to come to our villa to experience the peace and tranquility of the countryside, yet minutes away from all the beautiful Tuscan amenities.

Why the Owner Chose Lucca, Lucca, Italy:
It has the best location for all Tuscany amenities. Close to Florence, Pisa and the Italian beaches of Viareggio, not to mention the mountains of Pisa and the Cinque Terre! It is also a wonderful location to do day excursions to Montereggioni, Pienza, Cortona, and Livorno.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The villa is not occupied and you will be the sole tenants during your stay. The countryside boasts some excellent restaurants walking distance away! It is very close to the walled town of Lucca, a unique Tuscan center that is beautiful beyond compare! Restaurants galore, one better than the next. All this information is located inside the house by the entertainment area.
