Cuculiera, Pescaglia - Lucca

3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 6 guests Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

A faithfully restored rustic country villa boasting spectacular views of the valleys and mountains, La Cuculiera is a tranquil and comfortable getaway. The garden at this semi-detached hillside house features an elegant terrace set underneath a gazebo. A particularly unique feature is the outdoor lounge area beside the pool, residing on an island area accessed via a wooden bridge. Much of the garden and pool is contained within a centralised area. This, complete with the nearby rockery features, makes a wonderful place to lounge and swim in the sunshine.

Meanwhile, the interior carries an authentic farmhouse atmosphere. Modern conveniences have been added with great care so as not to disrupt the rural aesthetic. The open-plan kitchen-diner and lounge area is a great place to gather together, and features a wall-mounted TV and an open fireplace. Meanwhile, the bedrooms are decorated with subtle murals on the walls and have great views of the countryside. A safe haven of peace and quiet all round.

Our Thoughts
A tranquil getaway with has easy access to the town of Pescaglia. Cuculiera impressed us with its rich countryside atmosphere. It feels like a step back in time, without sacrificing comfort. The raised terrace area across the bridge is a fantastic feature, the likes of which we almost never see. What a stunning place to relax, especially with the addition of a parasol and the four nightlights on each corner of the fence.

Notes

1 pair of twin beds – can be converted into a double if requested when booking.
2 bathrooms with shower (none en-suite).

Man merkt das das Haus mit viel liebe renoviert wurde. Wir liebten die ruhige Lage. Wir waren ein mal am Strand und sind nach 3 Stunden geflüchtet um wieder die himmlische ruhe im Haus zu geniesen. Der Garten ist toll, auf der Blumenwiese tümmeln sich die Schetterlinge und die Eidechsen sonnen sich :-).
Local attractions Das nächste Dorf Pescaglia hat ein kleines Geschäft direkt im Zentrum hinter/oberhalb des Kriegerdenkmals, da bekommt man ab 9 Uhr Semmeln, Brot und sonst noch alles was was man so braucht. Grotta de Vento sehr zu empfehlen, nehmt die 2 Stunden führung, eine ist zu kurz. Essen waren wir nur einmal im Eliseo (http://eliseo.info/en) in Gallicano. Sehr lecker, Kellner spricht gut Englisch und auch Englische Karte.
