The great agricultural house, recently restructured, is a part of a typical 'corte lucchese' and offers four apartments, where one would like to stay longer than just a holiday!
Each apartment prides its own style and personality and all spaces offer lots of natural light, with the comfort of a true home. All the units have a kitchen, lounge room and bathroom; they are equipped with all the accessories, satellite TV, internet wi-fi and air conditioning.
'Encantea'...is: Situated only 2km from the historic centre of Lucca, you’ll find yourself in one of the most beautiful areas West of the Serchio River, between green pastures and beautiful stone houses.

It’s beautiful just to sit under the veranda, read a book and fill your eyes with green. Here you’ll find two hectares of green fields, interrupted only by a mirror of blue water.
A comforting magic.

Our ideas....: One can take advantage of the silence or create something different each day:
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.
Reach Lucca’s historic centre in 5 minutes, situated in the tree-lined street of the ancient walls,
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.
Murabilia: a market/exhibition of mostly rare plants and flowers, held annually in the month of September on one of the most beautiful bulwark of the cities walls. Enriched by presentations, closer examinations and competitions regarding interesting themes in this sector.
The Feast Day of Saint Zita: a beautiful floral market in the Amphitheatre Square, in memory of the patron saint of the city. Held during the week of 27th April.

very good property
great accomodation with excellent pool and very well located for Lucca and Pisa
Great location - v relaxing beautiful pool area
What a find this place is - better than I expected - beautiful apartments and grounds and pool are superb - you can walk into lucca takes about 35 mins - but to be honest it's so nice to eat at the apartment and sit outside looking at the beautiful surroundings
We are very happy that you had a lovely time with us!
It was a pleasure to host you and your family.
This review is written by a family of 4 (children aged 10 & 11) staying in May 2017. We broke down the review in sections that were important to us when choosing a rental.
Outside: WOW, true Tuscany! Even better than the photos. Acres of space, beautiful gardens, amazing views. The gardens are beautifully kept. There were several sections to enjoy including the large clean pool, lounge/sunning area, outdoor dining, and open fields. We appreciated the owners take great care to ensure each guest has a designated space of their own. The outdoor areas provided shade cover. Our boys loved playing football in the open field then going for a swim the pool. We had very memorable family dinners under the portico.
Inside: We stayed in Timo with 2 bedrooms. The children had their own beds in a shared room. Beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious. The views from each window were fabulous. Kitchen was very well equipped. The apartment was very clean and quiet.
Location: Just outside of Lucca - wonderful town to visit for shopping, dining, etc. This was our 2nd location on our Italy trip and a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of Rome. There was a grocery store, restaurant, bakery, and ice cream within walking distance. We arrived by train and did not rent a car but used taxi service too and from the villa. The villa is just outside Lucca, very quiet with views of the mountains.
Owner Communication: Giovanna was absolutely wonderful. Prompt with email reservations and inquiries. She helped us with arranging taxis, groceries, information, etc.
Overall: We would absolutely stay in this villa again and would highly recommend it for a restful stay with plenty to see and do in Lucca. Next visit we would want to try some of the cooking classes in the area.
Thank you for your review, it is fantastic.
We hope to see you soon.

lovely old farmhouse set just over the river from Lucca , ideal for mountains and visits to main tourist towns , manager could not be more helpful even taking us to station early in morning , getting lost in Lucca all part of fun , found some great restaurants serving local dishes , facilities on site were excellent and pool most welcome after all the walking in the sun
Lovely property with perfect location
What a lovely break we have had. The accommodation was perfect. Good sized apartment with fantastic garden and pool. Giovanna was very friendly and helpful. The location of property fabulous for touring the area and great if you enjoy cycling. Will definitely recommend it to friends and may come again!!
Great apartment, great owners!
We spent 11 days in Timo with our kids. Everything is renovated with the option for air conditioning. The owners are at the house every day working on the grounds. They are always happy to help you with directions, reference to restaurents,ect... But location,location,location! My kids are 8 and 10 and don't have the patience for long drives. Lucca 5min., Pisa 20 min., Florence 1hre and to the ferry for 5 terre , Sienna 1h30. We were able to leave in the morning for our visits and come back at the house in the afternoon to relax by the pool. Close to the house grocery store, wine store, butcher, pizza and gelateria...all perfect!
Thank you very much for your beautiful review and we hope to see you again.
