Casale di Campioni is an immaculately maintained Tuscan villa in the hills between Lucca and Montecatini Terme. It's ideally positioned to visit not only these two towns but also Florence and Pisa.
The pool lies on a rising to one side of the main house, about 20metres away through a small olive grove. It's surrounded by a pretty deck in terracotta with sunbeds from which to enjoy the views of the Tuscan countryside. Here there is also a pergola furnished with a table and chairs ideal afternoon snacks. The pool is fenced.
This Tuscan villa is composed of two buildings, the main villa and a small garden annex which sits on the edge of the garden and overlooks magnificent views. In this little cottage there is a kitchen with fireplace for barbequing. Outside is a covered loggia furnished with a table and chairs for dining al fresco while admiring the incredible view of the valley below.
The villa is entered through the back doors into a central hall which has a table and chairs and a lovely writing desk with chair, the perfect place to catch up on emails. From here there are stairs to the first floor.
To the left of the hall is the spacious kitchen which has the units along one wall. It is well furnished and includes gas hobs, oven, dishwasher and a fridge with separate freezer. A large, wooden dining table which can seat 10 people comfortably is in the centre of the room. Double doors lead out to the back garden and garden annex.
To the back of the entrance hall is a large lounge and dining room. This sitting area is composed of a couple of armchairs and a double sofa around a fireplace. To the back of the lounge is a toilet and small laundry room.
Passing under a terracotta arch is the dining area. It has a large wooden table which comfortably seats 10 to 12 people. From here double, arched, glass and wood doors lead out to the garden and provide the room with plenty of light.
The second, and larger lounge is also off the entrance hall, to the other side of the villa. It is large, bright room with a couple of double sofas around a fireplace and a TV in the corner.
From here is access to the ground floor bedroom which is ideal for people with slight mobility impairments as the en-suite bathroom is spacious with shower with no shower tray. The bedroom is a pretty double room done in a soft yellow colour and furnished with a wardrobe and TV.
The first floor has the other four bedrooms. Turning left at the top of the stairs is a double bedroom with painted iron bed. It is done in a pretty pastel blue colour and has a lovely wardrobe with a matching chest of drawers. The window looks out towards the views of the valley. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
To the right of the stairs is a small corridor. Off this is a lilac double bedroom which has plenty of space. It is furnished with a large wardrobe, writing desk with chair and TV. Double, glass and wood doors open onto a Juliet balcony which looks out to the fantastic views of the valley. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
At the end of the corridor is a suite perfect for families. It is entered into a twin, walk through bedroom ideal for children. This is a large, bright and spacious room furnished with a writing desk and wardrobe. There is a fireplace which can be used for cooler evenings. From this bedroom there is access to the en-suite bathroom and to a double bedroom.
The bathroom is with a bath tub that has a hydromassage shower. The double bedroom is accessed only from the twin room. It's furnished with a pretty iron bed, wardrobe, a matching chest of drawers and a TV. It also has direct access to the bathroom.


The double rooms cannot be made into twin bedrooms. The twin room can be made into a double if requested when booking.


The owner's house is next door and there is also a second neighbour, however neither of these two property overlook Casale di Campioni.
