About the Property
Casa San Gennaro - 3BR/3BA two-storey apartment with 5 x 12 metre swimming pool
I have four other apartments in the same building that have been in rental for two years. Here are the links to the other four apartments: VRBO 737874, VRBO 838626 VRBO 669139 and VRBO 963437. The five apartments together are perfect for groups up to 28 people, which is described in VRBO listing 867755. Please read the reviews for each of the properties on the individual listings to see how well-pampered you will be!
A lovely 1.5 km drive through olive groves brings you to the private, gated entrance. Our apartment (Casa San Gennaro) is part of a six apartment 'Borghetto' (formerly a rural, rustic farmhouse from the 14th century) in the hills below the village of San Gennaro near Lucca. The apartment is a tasteful blend of rustic, contemporary and antique furnishings. A 5 x 12 metre swimming pool with beautifully manicured lawns is shared by the apartments and is located on the terrace above the apartment with lovely views down the valley toward Lucca.
We are proud to offer a lifestyle in the heart of Tuscany that is truly unique. Picture yourself on the grounds of an historic 14th century building, rebuilt to the highest standards using only traditional Tuscan materials and methods, from handmade terra cotta tiled floors, to chestnut beams and tiled ceilings. The property also makes extensive use of hand built stone walls in keeping with the character and traditions of Tuscany.
The inviting open floor plan, which includes the living, dining and kitchen areas, is perfect for sharing meals and conversation. The fully equipped kitchen fitted in white Carrara marble has everything you need: a five-burner gas stove, oven and broiler, and dishwasher.
Two large ensuite bedrooms/bathrooms are on the 1st floor (American 2nd floor) and the top floor has the master bedroom and ensuite bath.
Coming with a bigger group? Or are there only 4 of you? Please ask about our 2 BR/2 BA apartment at il Borghetto in San Gennaro. Less expensive than the 3 BR/3 BA unit listed here.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

You will find that il Borghetto is located in one of the most popular areas in Tuscany. Situated between Pisa and Florence in Northern Tuscany, il Borghetto is only eight miles from the historic city of Lucca,
famous for its flat, pedestrian-friendly, cobblestone streets and its magnificent thirty meter wide Renaissance wall surrounding the entire city. Taking part in the evening walk, la passagiata, on the
tree-lined wall with dozens of other walkers and bikers is one of life’s little pleasures in Lucca. Lucca is big enough to offer opera and world famous artists at its Summer Music Festival, first-rate shopping,
and fine restaurants – and small enough that you can traverse by foot in twenty minutes.
You will be perfectly situated for easy access from either Pisa International Airport or Florence International Airport – each just 45 minutes from your door. Less than one hour away you will find the
Ligurian Sea and the famous walks in the Cinque Terre and the beaches of Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio and Torre del Lago, the home and final resting place of Lucca’s most famous citizen, Giacomo Puccini. The world famous Puccini Festival takes place every summer on the shores of Torre del Lago at their beautiful outdoor amphitheatre. In less than two hours, you can visit beautiful Siena, San Gimignano,
the vineyards of Chianti, and the famous Garfagnana region, home of the beautiful forested National Parks of the Apuane and Appennine mountain ranges.
Year Purchased: 2009

Why the Owner Chose Capannori LU, Italy:
The location of il Borghetto in San Gennaro is superb. In the medium hills above the Lucca plain and below the historic village of San Gennaro, we offer a piece of solitude in the Tuscan hills. Views of vineyards and olive groves are offered from every vantage point on the property. The newly built property features the stones of the 14th century building that stood on this very spot. Modern inside, the apartment retains the Tuscan charm of handmade terra cotta floors and chestnut beam ceilings throughout. It is an easy 20 minute hike up the hill to San Gennaro, where you can dine at the local trattoria, Il Corno Rosso. Hiking paths (all well marked by Club Alpina d'Italia) are all around the area.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The 5 x 12 metre swimming pool is on the highest point of the property, giving lovely views back toward Lucca. Gated entrance for security.
