Near to Lucca and the sandy beaches of Forte dei Marmi

Fattoria di Lucca is a 17th century farmhouse with 55 hectare of land with olive trees, woods and fields offering interesting trails for walking and biking. Tucked away down a narrow gravel road surrounded by woods and gardens, Fattoria di Lucca gives guests a feeling of luxurious seclusion while restaurants, shopping, and attractions are within easy reach. Lucca is 8 km distant. Shops are within a five minutes’ drive away, while a good restaurant can be reached in a 5 minutes’ walk. Daytrips to Pisa, Florence, Cinqueterre and the Versilia beaches are easily possible.

The interiors and exteriors have been fully restored in 2012. You will love the décor that seamlessly combine the original architecture and antiques with contemporary furniture and decorations, highlighting aspects of the historic villa while offering modern comfort. The interior is bright, colorful and tastefully decorated. Each room, including the spacious bathrooms, have a warm ambiance and lovely pastoral views of the grounds, beautiful flora, the hills and countryside. The pool is situated in a large expanse of lawn just above the villa. With its expansive gardens Fattoria di Lucca is perfect for groups of friends or family reunions. An English-speaking cook can come into the house and cook upon request.
