Antica Poesia, Camaiore - Lucca and Viareggio

2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 4 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

This interesting property near Lucca was formerly an olive press. Now it has been transformed into a characterful two-storey Tuscan villa that will provide a very comfortable base for a family of four or two couples. It’s a particularly savvy choice if you’re planning to attend the annual Puccini Festival at the open-air theatre in Torre del Lago. It's located in the hills but has good access to the coast and to Lucca.

With the Renaissance-era walled city of Lucca just begging to be visited, not to mention activities ranging from wine- and olive oil-tasting to horse-riding and golf available nearby, you’ll soon be itching to get out and explore. (The town of Montemagno is in walking distance, too.) But with two furnished terraces, walled and open gardens, and a pool with outstanding views of the surrounding olive groves, you could be forgiven for not venturing too far. The inviting interiors incorporate some of the original machinery used in the olive press and include good-sized bedrooms and cosy nooks in which to sit and catch up on that book you haven’t had time to read.

Our Thoughts
We love the traditional interiors, especially the little reminders of the villa’s previous life as an olive press. There’s a really cosy aspect to this place that will make you feel immediately welcome, though there is also lots of natural light. But it is the outdoor terraces that are the big draw. As well as a terrace with table and chairs in the private walled garden by the villa’s entrance, there’s also one midway down the main garden overlooking the pool, complete with a brick-built barbecue, table and chairs – the ideal spot for a gourmet al fresco dinner prepared by one of our recommended private chefs.

Notes
Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms. The owner lives in the adjoining villa.
Parking - Private parking outside villa.

Pool
The salt-water pool is situated across the quiet, narrow road at the front of the property, down some stone steps. It offers fabulous views of the surrounding countryside and has a raised deck furnished with plenty of sun loungers and parasols, plus there is a small kitchen and barbecue. The pool is accessed via metal ladders

Es war ein perfektes Urlaubserlebnis.
Man hat alles was man braucht, vor allem seine Ruhe!
Supermarkt in Camaiore (5km) ist Top sortiert!
Local attractions Wir waren 4 mal Essen. Immer wo anders. Kann ich alles empfehlen. Lucca, Pisa und vor allem Volterra haben uns sehr beeindruckt.
