About the Property
Large Spacious Villa With 5 Bedrooms, 6 Bathroom, 12 Mtr Pool, Open Stone Fire.
The pool is an oasis, with a good kids play area nearby and by the pool is a lovely Gazebo where you can enjoy lunch or dinner. It has a BBQ, large table, chairs, electricity and water. Outside the kitchen grounds is another gazebo which is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner or lust lounging about. But the best part of the upper kitchen grounds is the large stone fire where you sit with friends and family late into the night, its really special & unique. There is a chainsaw and axe to cut down (dead) trees on the ground, everyone seems to love this.
The Villa has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms with a spacious comfortable living and dining rooms. The large totally fitted kitchen has an island bar for casual eating and relaxing. The lower level has a Tavern bar which leads onto the Villa grounds, plus washing machine & laundry area. The Tavern bar boasts a brand new billiard (pool) table, plus other games. It also has good seating and a well stocked bar.
Outside near the pool there is also a nice play area for Children, including bikes and games. We now have 5 bikes (children & adults) plus games like swing ball and many others. There is an extensive movie collect at the villa, plus new satellite TV and very good wireless (even to pool). We will have sports channels for the 2014 World Cup!!!!!
3 minutes drive from Alla Marginetta are the lovely villages of San Rocco in Turrite and Focchia. A further 5 mins on from San Rocco is the picturesque town of Pescaglia. Continuing from Focchia is the quaint town of Fabbriche di Vallico. There are many lovely local restaurants in close proximity of the Villa. The area is great for fishing and mountain/hill walking or just chilling. The garden is landscaped very tastefully and gives you total privacy.
This Villa is absolutely unique in the area, sitting on such large grounds give total privacy. Still within driving distance you can find so much to explore or do.

- The area is spacious, you can see the pool from both balconies. Directly from the house you can walk on Mountains, down to our river. The property is a favourite for Mountain walkers. It happens to be a gathering point for many local avid walkers. For those who like walking you can actually walk all the way to the village of Fabbriche di Vallico (thru the mountains). You can enjoy fishing along the village, on the land there is even truffles. Alla Marginetta is very private and peaceful while still a close walk to the nearest village. During the summer the garden is lovely to sit out in. The large swimming pool is totally private and there is plenty of space to lie around. You also have the Gazebo to enjoy your lunch or dinner....moreless

The Tuscany / Lucca Province region
Located in central Italy, Tuscany is one of Italy’s best-loved regions. It combines a beautiful countryside reminiscent of the landscapes of Renaissance masterpieces, a rich artistic heritage including exquisite art and architecture, a glorious history, excellent wines and delicious food. Nearby drives the the Cities of Florence, Pisa and Lucca contain some of Italy's most famous artistic treasures. Tuscany is also home to many wonderful scenic hill towns.
The Pescaglia area
Pescaglia & San Rocco in Turrite,
San Rocco in Turrite is a quaint little village in the heart of Lucca province, about 1 km away is the pretty village of Focchia. Mush of the area around is nationally protected so it' is great for walking, cycling and exploring natural sights. A bit further on (10 min drive) Pescaglia is a picturesque Tuscan Village in the Commune of Lucca, it is about 10 miles north of Lucca's Old Town. The village is nestled within the Apuan Alps mountain range which boasts stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The villages are all quiet, charming and full of character with local village shops and bars. The villages of San Rocco in Turrite, Focchia, Fabbriche Di Vallico and Via Fabbriche di Vallico all have lovely little restaurants. The restaurant Al Laghetto in via Fabbriche di Vallico in particular has a great reputation.
Bagni Di Lucca is also a short drive away - an attractive Village with restaurants, a Thermal Spa and a large public pool with diving boards set in the grounds of a Villa. Lucca, with its stunning walled 'old town' is a 35 minute drive from the house and has a range of attractions. There is also a local bus service to Lucca several times a day. Cycling around the Lucca wall is not to be missed!
Major cities like Florence is about 1 hour and 15 minutes drive, Siena 1 hour 30 mins and Pisa is 60 minutes away. a bit further on you have Milan (3.5 hour), Bologna (2.5 hour) and Rimin (3 hours) are all drivable. Often people fly into those airports and drive down.
The Beaches of Viareggio, and Forte Dei Marmi are an hour away by car with Camiore Beach about 50 minute drive away.
In summary there is so much in and around Alla Marginetta, for those who do not mind a bit of a drive it is easy to even to Milan for shopping. For those who love shoping try the Outlet Mall near florence, it is great for Italian designer shops at affordable prices, its about 1 hour 40 mins away.

About: Hi, we are Irina & Cathal and the proud owners of Villa Alla Marginetta. The Villa has been a project of love as it took so long to get the Villa exactly the way we wanted. But now we have a home away from home. We live in Moscow with our 2 children, Meghan & David. The eldest Keelin lives in Miami. Irina is the CFO a large Russian company while I am semi-retired. Previously i was managing partner of operations for a large multinational. As I am multiple amputee I decided to lighten the work load. Irina and I have a love of travel so we do get to Italy as often as possible, along with other places. We got into properties many years ago and now have places in Russia, Thailand, Bulgaria, USA and Italy. Irina is from Russia while I originally come from Ireland.
Why Pescaglia, Lucca, Italy:
We have come to Italy on so many holidays and in the last 10 years always seem to gravitate to Pescaglia & Lucca area. Tuscany is such a beautiful hospitable place with some fine food. Alla Marginetta was our attempt at building a home away from home. While at times it can be frustrating the rewards at the end make it well worth it. Alla Marginetta has been a real project of love and care, we would do it all again in a heartbeat. We picked the area as particularly like Lucca and Pescaglia it is not overrun by tourists as other parts can be and the locals are very friendly. We picked this spot because it is nice and remote, very private yet you are quiet close to so many places. We wanted a villa that you could sit in for a week without the need to leave, Alla Marginetta is that and a lot more. Also, the weather is really good, it is hot but not too hot. When we stay we have so much to see and do while not driving too far, plus when we want silence this is the best place to hideaway. It is a great place for Mountain walking or fishing. There are so many nice restaurants nearby.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The villa can be very secluded and private yet you are still close enough to everywhere. With 2 Gazebo's and an large open Stone fire you have good places to relax and enjoy yourself.
