Ask about our other 4 apartments at il Borghetto. They are 2BR/2BA and just as charming as this 3BR/3BA apartment. Perfect for big groups, weddings, etc. This is a new listing for Holiday Lettings and Trip Advisor, but we have been listed on VRBO for two years and we have some great reviews. I'm not allowed to give you the link here but search for Lucca on the VRBO website and you'll find us, usually on the first page. WE HAVE GREAT REVIEWS ON THE VRBO SITE! A lovely 1.5 km drive through olive groves brings you to the private, gated entrance. Our apartment is part of a six apartment 'Borghetto' (formerly a rural, rustic farmhouse from the 14th century) in the hills below the village of San Gennaro near Lucca.

A lovely 1.5 km drive through olive groves brings you to the private, gated entrance. Our apartment is part of a six apartment 'Borghetto' (formerly a rural, rustic farmhouse from the 14th century) in the hills below the village of San Gennaro near Lucca. The apartment is a tasteful blend of rustic, contemporary and antique furnishings. A 5 x 12 metre swimming pool with beautifully manicured lawns is shared by the apartments and is located on the terrace above the apartment with lovely views down the valley toward Lucca. We are proud to offer a lifestyle in the heart of Tuscany that is truly unique. Picture yourself on the grounds of an historic 14th century building, rebuilt to the highest standards using only traditional Tuscan materials and methods, from handmade terra cotta tiled floors, to chestnut beams and tiled ceilings. The property also makes extensive use of hand built stone walls in keeping with the character and traditions of Tuscany. The inviting open floor plan, which includes the living, dining and kitchen areas, is perfect for sharing meals and conversation. The fully equipped kitchen fitted in white Carrara marble has everything you need: a five-burner gas stove, oven and broiler, and dishwasher. Two large ensuite bedrooms/bathrooms are on the 1st floor (American 2nd floor) and the top floor has the master bedroom and ensuite bath. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: not applicableMore

We have just returned yesterday from a wonderfully relaxing 10 day stay in Il Borghetto, and cannot praise it enough. The ride up the track made us realise just how hidden it was, but was well worth it. We arrived in a thunder storm, but...More
