Fully furnished kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, oven, gas hob, coffee machine, toaster. Laundry facilities - washing machine, An iron and ironing board, washing line. Newly refurbished bathroom with large shower, sink, bidet and washbasin. Small Garden - stone BBQ and smaller BBQ, garden table, chairs, umbrella, washing line. Central heating. Available all year round. Preferred Saturday to Saturday - but please enquire for availability of other arrival and departure dates. The house will comfortably sleep up to 6 persons. The property itself is old, stone and a rustic, mid terrace built on 4 floors. The first and second floors are for rental purposes. Entrance to the rental is through the little cottage garden around the back of the property (7 steps up to entrance). Made of thick stone the house keeps cool during the hot summer months, is light, airy and spacious. The small garden provides an additional space for dining outside, relaxing in peace and is comfortably shaded and 'cool' during the hot summer months. The gate to the garden may be closed to provide a safe playing area for younger children. BBQ, garden furniture provided. The house is literally 'home from home' and equipped with ample kitchen and living appliances for everyday comfort. TV is available to watch DVDs only viewed on a large 37' wide screen Plasma TV - Clean linen and towels are provided. Toys, books, DVDs, CDs are available for all to borrow. The property is located only 5 minutes from the motorway, providing easy routes to all major tourist locations. Major supermarkets are only a bus ride away (5 minutes by car) Parking and getting around: There is a loading bay only next to the property. Parking is available on the road just up from the property. This road is by no means busy or a main thoroughfare. There is also additional parking in the square (5 minutes walk from the house). Private parking is not available. A CAR IS RECOMMENDED to fully appreciate the Tuscan countryside, although not essential, as buses run from the village (limited service weekends, school holidays and bank holidays). There is also a small unmanned train station 20 minutes walk from the house. This service goes from the village to both Lucca and Viareggio, Prato and an early morning train takes you to Florence. Please check out trenitalia for times and service routes. Lucca is 7km away, only 10 minutes by car, but can take up to 20 mins by bus circulating the nearby villages on route. Last buses to Nozzano around 8pm (winter schedule). A taxi can cost between E15 and E20 from Lucca to Nozzano. As this is generally a family home, and children are frequent visitors, we would appreciate your co-operation in adhering to the NON-SMOKING policy. However, smoking outside in the garden and under the back porch is permitted.More

About the neighborhood
There is much to do and explore nearby and further afield. Nozzano is centrally located for day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Versillia, PucciniTorre del Lago, Garfagnana, Sienna, Livorno and the White Sands. For younger members of the family there are enjoyments such as Pinocchio Park, adventure parks, clubbing etc. For those who enjoy to keep fit, Lucca is famous for its historical walls, where people run, walk and cycle to keep fit or just to enjoy the beautiful views of the city. On the first weekend of September every year a Medieval Festival is staged in the castle walls and the village within the castle walls is transformed to medieval times, with jesters, jugglers, musicians, street artists, costume, food and wine. Nozzano itself is a very small village with basic amenities ...
Getting around
From the village itself there are buses. These are more frequent when the schools are open. The bus takes about 25 minutes to get into the centre of Lucca passing through 2 other smaller villages. Timetable can be found onine at Linee urbane di Lucca. Bus numbers 57 and 59. Getting back to Nozzano after 8pm there are no buses. Taxis from Lucca will cost around Euro20. The small unmanned train station offers more trains into the centre of Lucca and is about a 15minute walk away from the house. Tickets for buses can be purchased at the bar and tickets for the train must be bought from Lucca or on the train itself.
