Pedal along the banks of the Serchio River, in the close vicinity of the Park on the River or across the hills on a mountain bike to the sea.

Visit Lucca’s Villas: splendid architectural witnesses of the nobility of the 1500”s
Explore the outskirts: the Coast of Versilia and the mountains of the Garfagnana, which are half an hour away by car, The “Cinque Terre” approx 50km.
Reach the important cities of Tuscany: Florence, Pisa and Siena.
Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts, the 3rd and 4th weekend of every month, the traveling market every Wednesday and Saturday.“La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and oil tasting.
Our ideas....: Opera: Giacomo Puccini was born right here! There are many opportunities and occasions during the year to listen to the masterpieces of the famous musician.
Summer Festival: A summer release of live concerts of international artists in the historic Napoleon Square.
The” Lucca” September: a month of cultural events, both religious and folklore. The 13th of September is not be missed: the entire city accompanies the “Saint Volto” in an atmospheric and charming procession along the streets of the historic centre.

Loved it. Owner very helpful
Fabulous stay in beautiful Lucca
This was our first visit to the area and we were lucky to have chosen this wonderful property just outside Lucca. Spread over 3 floors, there was plenty of room for the 5 adults and little one and the garden and pool area was huge. There is a very nice eating outside eating area which we used all the time. We were met by Giovanna after receiving clear directions and shown around. Everything was as described and wonderful.
The property is about a 15 minute walk to shops and restaurants and around 40 minutes pleasant walk into Lucca.
Our villa was absolutely great and the grounds and pool were fantastic.
Giovanna was so helpful. We were supposed to land in Pisa in the afternoon. Our plane was diverted to Milan. We were then loaded on to buses and driven to Pisa airport. We then had to get our hire hire car in the middle of the night and drive to Lucca. we got in touch with Giovanna who guided us to our villa which we arrive at 2am in the morning and greeted with a smiling Giovanna..
Giovanna told us about restaurants and places to go to and even rang taxis for us.
I don't think you could get a better host, thank you so Giovanna from all of us
Clean, very well maintained, friendly staff
Fantastic place! This is our second stay her and still impressed. The place is very well maintained and the owners are so friendly. Everything is very thought through both with regards to the property and how they treat
A perfect location , close to Lucca but with a rural feel and an idyllic pool garden area .
We have just returned home from such a memorable week at Encantea at Melissa. We had read all the previous reviews and now totally agree with all the wonderful comments we read about Giovana and Francesco and their lovely property. It is such a perfect location and we enjoyed the fact we could visit Lucca , Pisa and Firenze and Borga ( a great recommendation from Giovanna) and still also have relaxation time by the lovely pool. We hope to return again soon .
You have been very welcome guests.
Thank you so much for choosing our house.
See you soon!!
beautiful,peaceful country apartment and grounds
The listing and the photos are completely accurate; in fact the grounds and scenery are more stunning than depicted. The whole place is immaculate,clean and well maintained. The pool and surrounds were spotless and very tranquil as they are shared by only 4 apartments. Lovely greeting from Giovanna who couldn't do enough for us. We walked into Lucca ,and back, on 2 occasions at a healthy pace and it takes 30 minutes minimum. On other occasions we walked in and took a taxi back. Cost varied between 14 and 17 euros. This property is highly recommended and we would definitely stay here should we return to the area
Thank you so much for your fantastic review.
You have been very welcome guests and we hope to see you soon.
Thanks again and greetings to all of you,
