Our beautiful ancient House, peaceful, decorated with style, with a lovely Garden and splash Pool, is at the end of a small medieval village, between Lucca and the sea side. It is also lovely and very romantic in low season, stove on, quiet landscape, long walks, books and a piano
Our house is very ancient,made out of stone at the end of a medieval village of ten houses. It is surrounded by olive Groves and Lavandas, Fruit Trees and Chestnut Woods. The Garden is quiet, mediterranean plants make it colorful and refreshing, perfect to relax, read a book, contemplate the view. You can taste and use all our Mediterranean herbs (Rosemary, sage, bay, Thime, etc) in the private kitchen and enjoy your meals outside in the shade of the vine pergola. Among all the roses you can have a dip in our lovely splash pool (3x2,5m) while over looking the stunning view of the Lucca valley.
The bedrooms are very special retreats. All walls are decorated with paintings, special objects, many books and good furniture. Every corner is full of inspiration and creativity. The bathrooms are big: one with a shower, many books, and a lovely view over the garden and valley, the other one has a bath. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans and basic food (olive oil, salt pepper, milk, pasta). The red living room is very cosy, here you can find books and maps about Lucca and its surroundings. The main living space is a open kitchen, living room, with direct access to the garden and a lovely view.On one side of the house is the totally private garden with the lovely splash pool, on the other side the quiet village. You can have endless walks into the hills or woods or olive groves. Or just relax in a totally magical environment, gazing at the lovely flowers, roses , herbs of the garden. The house has free wi-fi.
On walking distance there is a lovely little restaurant with a beautiful terrace overlooking the hills where you can have a local dinner in a very friendly ambiance.
The beautiful town of Lucca is 15min. far and the beaches are 20min. far. We can also advise you some amazing rivers you can go too, to have a refreshing wild swim in ponds carved in rocks or marble stones... Pisa, Florence, Siena, Cinque Terre are all reachable for day trips.
We offer both b&b option or weekly rent. When rented weekly, we do not serve breakfast.
Our breakfast is lovely and fresh: fruits, yogurt, jam and ham, cheese, fresh bread, muesli, juice, coffee and tea, that you can have outside in the garden if sunny, in our lovely kitchen if rainy.
if you want we can advise you trips, visits, restaurants, or some cooking receipts. But if you just would like to rest in the garden and absorb the lovely sun light, you can have all the silence and privacy you just wish for.
know it sounds funny, but we happen to live in the most beautiful surroundings ever. As painter everyday I am amazed how beautiful the landscape, the woods, the olive groves, the villages, the towns, the nature, people and above all light are here. you can just sit and look around and never get bored. Or if you like to walk you can take endless walks into nature, every path you take is beautiful.
We live on a hill in Tuscany, this means there is no bus service and you need to have a car or a bike if you are very fit. It is not possible to move around without, and you would be missing so much of it.
In winter period we have an additional central heating cost: please ask if you are interested. Wood for the stove is included in the price.

I am a painter. I paint land scapes, views, nature, the sea. My painting is fully linked to the area I live in: I try everyday to capture the lovely lights of my country. I love gardens and flowers: I have planted a forest by now in my life and this thought makes me feel better. I have a total passion for roses, any kind.
My husband Wes is dutch: he was born in Madagascar, grew up in Africa and Bangladesh and now lives in Tuscany with me since several years. He loves music, plays several instruments and has been a cabinet maker. Currently he is planning a big life change. We both love to meet new people and travel.
