À propos de ce logement
Charming villa with private pool
Alle Monache is a beautiful estate located on the hills, north of Lucca, in the tiny, little hamlet of Castagnori. The charming mansion in Tuscan style is set on top of a hill and looks down on gentle slopes covered with woods, olive groves, vineyards and cypress-trees.
The extensive lands of approximately 19 hectares (not completely fenced) are partly set in terraces but mostly kept as meadow with a wonderful swimming pool (12 x 6 m, depth 1,40 m) where you may take pleasant baths. The delicate scents coming from the aromatic herb bushes, lemon plants, roses and geranium in the garden will make your dining al fresco in the outdoor areas fully equipped with tables, chairs and barbecue even more enjoyable.
Alle Monache will guarantee its guests peace and top privacy though the city centre of Lucca is within easy reach (approximately 14 Km) by means of a scenic road which winds downhill. The other side of the hill provides also an easy connection to the coast by means of the road leading to Camaiore and the famous villages of Viareggio, Lido di Camaiore and Forte dei Marmi.
You will find, in the surroundings of the house, excellent restaurants where you may taste delicious local specialties on a panoramic terrace. Or you may want to pay a visit to the many farms and taste wine straight from the producers.
