Large Villa Rental near Vorno, Lucca with Air Conditioning - Casa Samuele
Description from the manager
Situated just minutes away from the cosmopolitan town of Lucca, this luxury villa in Tuscany offers both the respite of the countryside and accessibility to shopping and culture. Anyone with an appreciation for architecture will enjoy Casa Samuele's stunning design and the way that the original lines of the historic farmhouse and mill have been carefully preserved and enhanced with modern amenities. While the classic Italian gardens and swimming pool may provide diversion enough on a warm day, Lucca (10 minutes) and Pisa (20 minutes) both offer a wealth of museums and restaurants, should you have the desire to explore. For longer day trips, the stunning Ligurian coastal jewels of the Cinque Terre (112 km) and chic Portofino (142 km) are within reach by car.

The large garden and pool and the large dining room. Great for 5 couples on both accounts.
The property needs to be signed better. Even though the directions to the villa are good, the house has a very little sign which we passed by three times before calling the house and getting a person to stand outside the house on our arrival.

This property is charming, and sits back in the Lucca hills on beautiful grounds. The view is brilliant and can be seen from the masterbedroom windows for gazing. The dining table is nicely set up, and still houses a view underneath of the old olive mill workings. The owner and caretaker are real jems and extremely accomodating. It is very quiet, secluded, and close to the city of Lucca to take in shopping, good food, fine wine, and gelato!
The grounds are pleasant to walk around on, and the pool in nice during the evenings. The living space is very comfortable and inviting, with being luxurious and having all the modern amenities. The kitchen is nicely equipped for cooking, and you have the option of some meals being prepared for you. Every room can be adjusted for specific temperatures and music, which is nice perk on top of everything else.
None. (a tip) A rental car is necessary.
Lucca is a charming city and within driving distance is Florence, Siena and Pisa. (although the train can all be taken to those places as well)! The view from the back is tranquil and is an exquiste example of Tuscan countryside.
