La Canonica is located in the tiny village of Brandeglio which is located in the hills above Bagni di Lucca. This wonderful Tuscan villa is attached to another property in the village only on one side while three remain free.
A short distance away, on a level below the villa there is the small garden and pool area. It is a quiet area with plenty of plants and trees around providing shade. There are great views of the forest covered hills from the area.
Outside the villa, facing towards the views is a spacious terrace furnished with two umbrellas and wooden tables with chairs for 12 people. Off this terrace is a small bathroom with shower.
From the terrace there is access to the lounge and to the dining room. The lounge is a large, bright and spacious room in tradition Tuscan style with a ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta and a large stone fireplace to one side. Around the fireplace are three double sofas. An antique wooden table surrounded by four chairs sits to one side of the room. While a heavy wooden door provides access to the quiet stone street in front of the villa.
The dining room is furnished in an old Tuscan villa style with the original dull coloured tiled floor and ceiling with wooden beams. A huge wooden table sits in the middle of the room. It's surrounded by 8 chairs and a bench to comfortably seat 12 people. In the room are several antique pieces of furniture.
The kitchen is next to the dining room and has direct access to it. There is a linoleum floor in this large and bright room. In the centre of the room is a wooden table. The main kitchen is in the antique villa style while attached is a smaller kitchen which is simpler however has several modern appliances. Equipment available includes gas hobs, dishwasher, oven and a fridge with separate freezer.
The first floor and sleeping area is accessed from the lounge. At the top of the stairs is a little sitting room with TV. It is simply furnished with a triple sofa and two double sofas. To one side is a book shelf with plenty of books, in front of which is a small dining table with chairs. Along one wall is a huge wardrobe.
Off the sitting room is a bathroom with shower. Next to this is a small single bedroom with a lovely stone exposed wall and a window looking out towards the views of the valleys and mountains covered in forests.
Neighbouring this bedroom and with access from the sitting room is the first of the double bedrooms. It has a pale green decor with a large wardrobe, a pretty chest of drawers with matching bedside tables. The double bed can be set up as a twin if requested when booking. The bedroom window looks out to the wonderful views of the mountains.
The other bedrooms are down a long corridor off the sitting room. The first is decorated in red with a warm terracotta paved floor. In a corner is a wooden wardrobe while the double bed is in the centre of the room. It can be set up as a twin if requested when booking.

Pros Sehr schönes eingerichtete Herrenhaus. Sehr viel Platz, wunderschöner Ausblick, toller Pool.
Cons Sehr abgelegenen, man kann vorm Haus nicht parken. Beschwerliche Wege. Mann ist min. 20 min. Unterwegs wenn man was einkaufen möchte. Dadurch geht viel Zeit verloren.
Local attractions Lucca ist sehr schön

Pros Schönes Haus mit viel Platz, Flair und Atmosphäre. Man kann toll kochen, toll essen. Die Aussicht ist grandios, das Dörfchen ruhig. Der Pool ist der Hammer.
Cons Nichts zu meckern.
Local attractions Siena muss man gesehen haben, Lucca ebenfalls. Florenz ist auch nicht weit entfernt. Viareggio ist auch eine Reise wert. Il Pipistrello in Brandeglio kann ich sehr empfehlen. Erst recht, wenn das halbe Dorf sich dort einfindet und gesungen wird.
