Countryside Farmhouse at La Capraia in Lucca

Overview
Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Lucca, Province of Lucca, Tuscany
Restored Farmhouse with Pool, 15 minutes from the Walled City of Lucca.

Treat yourself to life in the sunny Tuscan countryside. Our 4 bedroom holiday home complete with in-ground saltwater pool, fruit orchard, wood oven and grape vines is the perfect remedy to city life. Just a 15 minute drive to the historic center of Lucca, and one hour to Florence.

Originally a working farmhouse, La Capraia sits nestled on a 6 acre parcel of green olive groves and a small vineyard. It is flanked by a chestnut forest and a cool mountain stream. Life is slow and easy here. We wake to the sound of birds and we sleep to the sound of the cicadas.

Two walking trails into the woods depart from our property. Our patio features a wood oven stove and jasmine covered pergola with a long table for 8. Fire up the wood oven, roast a pig or make some fresh pizza,...

Interaction with guests
My husband Michel is a computer programmer and I'm a local wedding planner, well connected with the various travel related services in Lucca and the surrounding area. We try to provide a discreet service for our guests that allows for them to enjoy the privacy that our home provides while still having access to local information, like the best wine tours, cooking classes, and local events. We stay at a separate property in Lucca during your stay guaranteeing your privacy while still making ourselves available should help/advice be needed.

The house was fantastic in a lovely rural setting but 20 minutes walk to a village we grew to love. The village has the shops you require and even an opera house . Ceiling fans and mosquito nets on all windows ensured a good nights...More

About the neighbourhood
La Capraia is immersed in the green of the Lucca Hills, on a 6 acre parcel of farmland yet just a 15 minute drive to the walled city of Lucca and 45 minutes to Pisa airport. We are in walking distance of three villages. Valdottavo, the farthest of the three, is just under a 2 km tree shaded walk away and has a pizzeria/bar, caffe, green grocery, ATM, butcher and bakery. The other two villages are of scenic interest and make for a wonderful walk in the morning.
Getting around
Best to get around by car. Try to rent a small car as the country roads can be narrow at times.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Pisa Airport: 55.0 km
Railway: Diecimo: 4.8 km
If arriving by plane, the best way to get to our house is to rent a car from Pisa airport and drive towards Lucca. Once in Lucca, take the Brennero north to Valdottavo. Once in Valdottavo, follow signs for Partigliano. The house is 2 minutes from the village. I will send you detailed directions upon your booking. Should take 50 minutes from the airport to our house.

If arriving by train, take the train from Pisa airport to Pisa Central. Change at Pisa Central to Lucca Central. From Lucca Central take the train to Diecimo. Get off at Diecimo. You will need a cab for the last 10 minutes of the trip to our house.

We strongly recommend renting a car for those that stay here. Public transport in the countryside is limited.
