Casa dell' Acqua is a beautifully restored traditional farmhouse villa, which is wonderfully situated in a large olive grove on a hill overlooking the plain towards Lucca.
This is a special house which offers the opportunities of organised walking, art classes and cooking lessons. This is organised through the agency and with the owner.
The house has lovely features with all modern facilities. It has been only recently restored and has a large olive grove around it. There is a colourful garden and terraces, on one of which an out of ground pool has been erected, great for cooling off or playing in. Casa dell'Aqua is a big house with 4 bedrooms, 2 large doubles, 1 twin bedroom, and 1 bedroom with a small double ( 3/4 ) bed.
There is a large bright living room with a dining area and stone open fireplace, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen with table, and a utility room. There is a very comfortable, cool atmosphere about the old house, with many features including chestnut beams and terracotta ceilings, and lovely tiled floors.
There is good free internet and British satelite TV channels.
Casa Dell' Acqua is so called due to the ancient well in the garden. It is situated on a famous hill known as 'La Bracolleria', which is host to seven small villages, olive groves, vineyards and farms. The Lucca hills are known for the quality of their wine and particularly olives and olive oil. There are fantastic views over the plain to Lucca, and over the Apuane Mountains to the North.
The famous art city of Lucca is only a few kilometres away, and the lovely villages of the Media Valley and the dramatic mountain scenery of the Garfagnana are also nearby. Nearby, within 5 minutes walk, there is a well known restaurant, and many others in the locality. There are also important churches and villages which can be visited on foot.
There are 2 mountain bikes available for the guests to use.
We can help arrange mountain biking, hill walking, horse riding, gorge walking and cooking classes which are all available locally.
