|This Lucca villa rental combines all the convenience of being near town (Castelnuovo Garfagnana) with the quiet of the country. From the roof-terrace you gaze upon a superb natural landscape: the peaks of the mountains, including the Uomo Morto (literally 'dead man', this is a peak that looks like a man's face in repose). And there is the church tower of Sassi, a tiny hamlet clinging to the rocks. In autumn the trees turn gold and in winter the mountains are covered with a blanket of snow.
You reach this country house to rent by passing through a chestnut wood. At the entrance you immediately see the house, entirely re-built in 2002-2003 in the typical country style of Tuscany’s Garfagnana. Surrounding the house is an estate of 25 acres, great for families with children. You’re within the Apuan Alps national park of course, so you may – if you’re lucky – glimpse squirrels and deer. Take a refreshing dip in the 12 x 6 metres swimming-pool with water-chute, or take the sun on the surrounding sundeck.
The house is set up as follows. On the ground floor there's a large room, combining kitchen, living and dining room. The kitchen corner has an electric oven, microwave, a fridge-freezer and a dishwasher. The living room has a 32in satellite TV, DVD player and hi-fi. You should bring your satellite TV smart card: the decoder supports every code system except NDS. The ground floor also has a bathroom and lumber room.
The first floor has three bedrooms (two large, one small) sleeping seven in total. Two of the bedrooms access a large roof-terrace with lovely views. There’s a further (large) bathroom on this floor.
From 2009 (April) it is available a nice stone dependence just beside the main villa (bedroom+ensuite bathroom) for 2 people .
WiFi Internet included in the rental price . Just bring with you your own laptop .
Outside, beneath the roof-terrace, there's a wood oven for pizzas and a long cellar/lumber room (within which you’ll find a washing machine).
