We suspected this house would be on its own and a wee bit removed from civilisation but although it was along a rough track it is actually only a five minute drive from the nearest village and shop and 15 mins to the nearest main road heading into town. the location gives good access to the mountains but bear in mind it is 30 - 40 mins away from Barga/Catelnuovoa and Lucca. Easy driving on good roads though. The villa itself sits on a hillside and overlooks a wee fish farm and across a small valley to the hamlet of Magnano Spli level gardens with the lower one having a good sized pool. The covered terrace outside the house is wonderful surrounded by flowers and with southerly views down into the valley.
The outside also boasts a loggia complete with BBQ and a wood fired oven ( makes superb bread and roasts !) The interior of the house has a somewhat individual style - think elderly granny who doesn't get out much - but is fine for all that. Comfortable enough sitting area with large table, seperate dining room, three decent bedrooms and a relatively small but well equipped kitchen. Two bathrooms and thats you ready for a very relaxing holiday.
This villa wasn't our first choice ( original booking let us down badly !!) but we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves any more than we did at this rental. Its not super duper luxury, its not on the main tourist trail, its not next door to any great attractions - save for mountains and wonderful scenery - but it is comfortable, has everything you need for a pleasant stay and it has peace, perfect peace in abundance - bliss.
