About Jim Kachenmeister
Mark and Heather fell in love with Italy 30 years ago on our honeymoon. More recently, with friends, we were able to participate in the complete restoration of the il Borghetto estate and we are now happy to share our little piece of Tuscany, Villa Noscali, with you. We know you will be in good hands with our friend Jim, who will greet you upon arrival and share his local knowledge to help make your holiday memorable.
Jim Kachenmeister purchased this Farmhouse in 2014
Why Jim Kachenmeister chose Capannori
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.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Private terrace for your exclusive use. Table and chairs for 6 people. 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.
