Al Palazzaccio is a large and spacious farmhouse with the features and amenities of a villa. This splendid property is located high in the hills northwest of Lucca. As the country kitchen attests, an old look has been achieved without sacrificing modern conveniences. Since the owners also use Al Palazzaccio as their holiday home, it is equipped with all amenities, including TV, Stereo and Playstation. Furthermore, fans are provided in every bedroom, assuring a comfortable sleep even during the hottest nights. The pool, situated only steps from the house, is surrounded by five hundred mature olive trees. From every vantage point, guests enjoy... commanding views of the plains of Lucca while maintaining their privacy.
NOTE: The caretakers live in an independent apartment at the back of the house.

Due to the fact that many properties in this area can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways, we 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 your Villa Specialist at the time of booking if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at a property in this area.
If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with your Villa Specialist 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.
Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges 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 in our portfolio 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.
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 servicesRead more

The location is good with a beautifull point of view.
The house does not deserve its high price.
