The layout of this house reflects the old classical pattern of the farmhouses of the Marche region; the ground floor for the animals and the top floor for the farm worker, with a hayloft and storage for the crops. In 1974 the house was bought and renovated by the present owners who have modified some elements but maintained the soul of the late 19th century rural house, as seen by the stone walls, wooden ceiling beams and the old terracotta floors.
The property is set in grounds of 10,000 sq m, among woodland, fruit trees, olive groves and lawn. The grassy area nearest the house extends for 5,000 sq m and is planted with age-old trees like pines, walnuts and holms oaks and bushes of various kinds. Adjoining the entrance is a large portico which extends along the whole façade, connecting the inside to the outside. The garden extends over two terraces with the pool area sited in the lower terrace; the pool, which is about 50m from the house is reached via a short flight of stone steps dug directly into the ground. It is a bean-shaped pool, with PVC lining and stone border. There is also a little beach for children, with roman stairs and a wave system. In a panoramic position, the pool has a hot water shower and is furnished with sun beds.
The swimming pool will be available for use between the last Saturday in April and the first Saturday in October, at other times of the year the property is rented without use of the pool.
Access road is 30 meters of unpaved road in good condition

It is not surprising that Tuscany and Umbria are the most popular destinations in a country full of popular destinations! There are SO many reasons to visit the regions; from the simply but stunning local cuisine and wine to the rolling landscapes, from the medieval cities such as Lucca, great architecture and monuments in Pisa and the beautiful hill towns like San Gimignano. There really is something for everyone.
Lucca is located at the foot of the Apuan Alps and is less than half an hour from the Tuscan coast. There are so many traces of it’s ancient history, from the footprint of the Roman amphitheatre to the archeological remains under the 12th Century church of Saints Giovanni and Reparata and the various towers and villas dating from the 12th to the 16th Centuries.
