Casa Dell' Aqua is so called due to the ancient well in the garden. It is situated on a famous hill known as 'La Brancolleria', which is host to seven small villages, olive groves, vineyards and farms. The Lucca hills are known for the quality of their wine and particularly olives and olive oil. There are fantastic views over the plain to Lucca, and over the Apuane Mountains to the North. The famous art city of Lucca is only a few kilometres away, and the lovely villages of the Media Valley and the dramatic mountain scenery of the Garfagnana are also nearby. The house has been only recently restored and has a large olive grove around it. There is a colourful garden and terraces, on one of which an out of ground pool has been erected, great for cooling off or playing in.
