This stunning property is situated in Gragnanno, on top of a hill with beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards, olive groves and Lucca city. Its recent restoration was completed in a contemporary boutique-style by a renowned Italian architect and is of a very high standard in all respects. The interiors are airy, there are many windows including French doors opening onto the garden, thus making it a property full of light, emphasized even more by the open spaces and two-sided fireplace in the open plan media room.
The British owners use the property frequently for their holidays and have furnished it with modern equipment: air cond...itioning in all bedrooms, flat screen TV, high quality hi-fi system, dryer, internet connection and a billiard table. A particular feature is also the very well equipped high tech gourmet kitchen, with a professional Lacanche stove.
The layout of the garden has been created by a very talented landscape architect and the result is truly impressive. The beautiful swimming pool has been located in one of the most panoramic positions of the garden and has an electric cover that maintains the water temperature higher in the mid seasons. La Corte Malgiacca Estate produces its own olive oil and wine. This property is not suitable for children under 12.

SWIMMING POOLS - Swimming pools are not open all year. If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients’ use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.
HEATING - Heating is available at an additional charge of 50 Euro per day and must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.
WATER AND ELECTRICITY - Please note that most of the properties that we offer are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.
INTERNET CONNECTION - Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
LOW SLUNG CARS - VANS – MINIBUSES - Most of our houses are located in the countryside. Some of them can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways. We therefore advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us, at the time of booking, if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at one of our properties.
Additional amenities include: pool table, maid, laundry facility, alfresco dining, electric pool cover.Read more

The villa was restored few years ago with good taste , with modern equipment but kept the toscan nature of it. the villa is well equiped with up to day techno, kitchen is fully equiped to cook as a restaurant. You don't feel, like very often happen, that the owner hide everything in a secret room. - Maxime L., Quebec, Canada

The villa was stunning - the setting was beautiful and the villa was first class in every respect. It was luxurious but in an elegant and accessible manner. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well appointed. The kitchen was perfect for a house full of cooks. We had terrific fun cooking with the excellent gourmet appliances and facilities. The salt water pool was used everyday and lawn furniture was also first class. It was a terrific villa experience. - Jayne W., Ontario, Canada

Our house was even more beautiful than the pictures on the site, we had an amazing view and there was not one negative we could find about the house. Everything was taken care of as promised and we had all of our needs met, before and during our stay. We have all decided already to come back and if ever we would rent another house we would be sure to regard your site first. Thanks for everything, it really was a fantastic week.
