6BR Villa Vacation Rental in Lucca

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Feb 14, 2018

Peace, panoramas and privacy minutes from the walls of Lucca; a/c & pool

Located in: Lucca »
Astride a turn in the hillside, known as A Capo, lay a farm with exceptional views (incl. Leaning Tower of Pisa, 12 miles south).

Abandoned, overgrown, collapsed.

Until recently.

A new owner has restored a villa (280 sq m), whose ruins dated back to the 17th century, sparing no expense to use traditional terracotta and chestnut materials.

The result meets all requirements of today's market:
- interior design;
- Sky satellite TV + 5.1 DVD;
- under-floor heating;
- hi-speed satellite internet with wi-fi;
- air-conditioning to local (not US standards);
- infinity pool;
- 4 lavishly appointed double/twin bedrooms (all en-suite); can sleep 6 more (basic);
- large kitchen, dining room, 50sq m living room;
- stunning south-facing panorama over Pisa and Lucca, towards Florence & Siena. 2 terraces shaded by chestnut pergolas.

10 mins to shops + all major Tuscan culture within 2hrs. Quiet and very private

POOL
Grassed paths from both patios lead up to the 12x6m infinity swimming pool with stunning views across the plain of Lucca to the Pisan mountains, distant Pisa and (on a clear day) the mountains of Elba (some 100 miles away). The facilities include a children's paddling pool, terracotta patio, paved sun terrace and grassed shaded terrace with sun-loungers, bench, wooden tables and chairs. The pool is protected by fencing (1.2m high), hedges, walls and/or gates.

ESTATE

Enjoy some 25 acres of woodlands, olive grove and disused vineyard, with traditional terracing and pathways.

PETS

We and our cats (who do not live in the house) welcome pet-lovers and your pets.

SAN MACARIO, LUCCA & PUCCINI
San Macario's upper village is distinctive: set in a nature reserve, its bell-tower overlooks a stunningly beautiful part of north-west Tuscany, beneath the Apuan Alps and close to the Garfagnana National Park.
Shops in the lower village include a grocery store, several bakeries and a drive-kms-for-their-meat butcher. Two large supermarkets (Co-op and Conad) are within a further 5 minutes drive.
San Macario is 10 minutes drive from Lucca and 14 miles from Pisa (its famous leaning tower and airport visible in the distance). Direct flights to Pisa from the US (New York - Delta), UK, Ireland and many other European airports. Florence Airport is also easily within an hour.
Pisa is well known, and Lucca is a unique medieval walled city overflowing with history, culture and charm - also Puccini's birthplace. July & August see the open air Puccini Opera Festival at nearby Torre del Lago, close to the fashionable Versilia coast - sunny, sandy beaches served by bars & restaurants aplenty. A must.

TOURS & COURSES
We can also include limousine service, cultural tours, cooking/ art/ photography/ film courses.

DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT
A deposit of 25% of the rent is required to secure your booking.
The balance is payable 8 weeks before your arrival date. A security deposit of €500 or 25% of the rent, if greater, is also due 8 weeks prior to the arrival date. If a booking is made less than 8 weeks before the arrival date, 100% plus the security deposit is required to secure the booking.
If you cancel, or fail to pay the balance by the due date, all amounts paid to secure the booking are forfeit, and only the damages deposit will be returned. Security deposits, less any deductions (including expenses) are returnable after the departure date.
Breakages will be recharged on a replacement as new cost basis.
All bank charges are recharged to the account of the tenant at cost.

CONTRACT
Subject to contract .

EXTRAS

Electricity - according to meter readings (typically €100 pw, but air/con will increase costs significantly)
Water - €5 per day (winter); €7 per day (summer); €10 per day (summer) - yes, utilities in Tuscany are very expensive!

For electricity charges, guests may ask to read meters with us, in the absence of which our staff's readings will be final.

LARGER GROUPS

There are additional per head per night charges for larger groups, which are included in your quote from HomeAway. These reflect additional staff and admin costs with larger groups and are based on the number of different people who stay overnight at the villa during the course of your stay. If, during your stay, more different people than stated during the reservation process stay overnight, we will charge you for the additional amount, by deduction from the security deposit.

VALUE
Even with these extras at low rents, our properties offer incredible value, compared to similarly priced alternatives.
