Casa Gioia, Ponte a Moriano - Lucca

5 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 10 people Private Pool 0 - no reviews - no reviews 0

You get double for your money at Casa Gioia, a large Tuscan country house just 10km outside the medieval city of Lucca – a hot pick for opera fans visiting for the annual Puccini Festival. This lovely villa is essentially two apartments, with generous living areas and kitchens on both the ground and first floors. It’s a clever choice for a large group with a couple who would appreciate a little extra privacy.

The smaller apartment of the two is on one level, on the ground floor, so it’s also a stress-free option for the elders of a multi-generational family party. And the whole group can easily come together – as well as independent access, the areas are connected by an internal staircase. Alternatively, it could just be used as a rambling property, with bright and comfortably furnished rooms, that offers lots of space for everyone to enjoy. Outside, there is a covered pergola with a barbecue and a long table and benches for al fresco dining, with views of the surrounding valley. A second furnished spot can be found in the shade of the olive grove near the private pool, which itself is set with loungers for relaxing under the Tuscan sun.

Our Thoughts
This is a really flexible villa, not just because it has two areas in which to cook, eat and relax, but also due to the fact that all the bedrooms can also be reconfigured as twins or doubles. We also like that the pool area feels private yet doesn’t skimp on glorious views of the valley. And Casa Gioia’s proximity to Lucca is a definite plus, allowing you to spend some carefree days by the pool and others taking in the remarkable sights of this lesser-known Italian city.

Five bedrooms. Four bathrooms, three en-suite (one is a Jack and Jill bathroom shared by two bedrooms). Please indicate when booking how you would like the bedrooms to be set up as they cannot be changed on arrival. The owners live on the property, a short distance from the villa, but the two houses do not overlook each other and the owners do not use the pool. They have a well-behaved dog. There is a very quiet public road in front of the villa.

It has a paved terrace with deckchairs and sunloungers and there is a second shaded area furnished with a table and chairs. The water is accessed via metal steps. 12x4m, 1.5m deep, open from mid-May to end of September, weather permitting. The pool is cleansed with a chlorine-free system.
