The apartment itself has a large queen bedroom and a giant "dorm" that can sleep a great many guests, or a large group of kids. The unit has a brand new kitchen and bathroom, all Italian tile, and bright; and is otherwise literally the ancient stone and arches that once led out from the village castle.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

Why the Owner Chose Gallicano, Lucca, Italy:
This is a town of 35 houses built in 1012, and at the center of local history, with view in every direction over northern Tuscany, peaceful and traditional, quiet and yet 5 minutes from a great little city with everything, including beauty, rivers, stores, routes to all major Italian areas, but few tour buses or major crowds. The apartment is the downstairs of a house that is 800 years old and was built for a Bishop; it dominates the tiny town's one street. The apartment has a magnificent view over a large area, including Carerra quarries, many hill towns around, and beautiful farm and forested vistas, and a very impressive view down the valley.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The large apartment is all stone walls with arches and an ancient feeling, with huge and numerous chestnut roof beams and rafters, tiled floors, and screened windows; it is a very beautiful and very old space, totally re-done with modern bathroom (shower) and kitchen (disposal, washer, etc.). This is a totally peaceful setting but a short short drive to many interesting and entertaining settings, including Barga and Lucca, and famous hill towns.
