About the Property

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, hot tub, veranda, wi-fi and staff on the hills in Lucca

Immersed amongst the olive groves, only a 3 kilometres from the walled centre of Lucca, and 15 kilometres from the famous beaches of Versilia, Villa La Carciofaia, has been recently carefully restored by the proprietor. The property is built in stone and plaster and is located at the very top of a hill which offers unique views of the town at your feets. The property is surrounded by a big park, typical of the Mediterranean followers and marquis, allowing its guests to enjoy the various kinds of perfumes and colours and there is also a beautiful large swimming pool furnished with deck chairs and sunbeds each one with its own beach towel and head cushion that every night is removed and dryed by the housekeeper. Every morning the housekeeper prepares and cleans the pool area.

In April 2015, British actor Jeremy Irons stayed here for a week. See his photo with me in the photo chart!

Car: Recommended

Lucca, beautiful city, famous for its monumental 15th century fortified wall. But dig a little deeper and you find that its winding medieval streets actually follow the plan laid out by the Romans in 180BC. And before the Romans, Lucca was one of the major centres of Etruria, the ancient country of central Italy that more or less corresponds to modern Tuscany. Unsurprisingly then, Lucca is steeped in history. Your twelfth century building is just a small part of that. There are museums and churches, and the magnificent cathedral, the Duomo di San Martino, is the town’s finest Romanesque building, its impressive façade a triumph of sculpture, carving and inlay work – at just five minutes’ walk from the apartment. Modern delights include terrific restaurants, bars and shops, all within a few minutes’ walk. In Lucca’s winding streets, the pedestrian comes before the car, so you can move at your own pace. In fact wandering the streets is one of the great pleasures of the city.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city. My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Why the Owner Chose Lucca, Lucca, Italy:
