Residenza al Principe, Pieve Santo Stefano - Lucca

5 bedrooms 5 bathrooms 10 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Perched in the Tuscan hills, close to the city of Lucca, Residenza al Principe is a villa that would lend itself to a special family celebration or anniversary. Standing in splendid isolation amid extensive lawns, with a spacious kitchen and lounge-diner, and five generously-sized bedrooms all with their own bathrooms, there's more than enough room for everyone. Step inside this beautifully restored property and you instantly feel as though you are exploring your own private boutique hotel (this used to be a B&B). The villa has been renovated to an extremely high specification and you are sure to warm to its modish colour schemes, which alternate cream and beige with bolder combinations. Mood lighting, sleek furniture, Roman blinds, luxurious banquettes and walk-in tiled showers add further touches of luxury.

To one side of the villa is the sparkling pool with a pretty pergola. From all around the garden the views are simple and of the surrounding forest covered hills. Around the garden is a hedge which protects the property from its distant neighbours.

You can dine within these stylish surroundings or al fresco on the terrace under a large shaded pergola, swagged with voiles, perhaps enjoying pizza made from the wood-burning oven. The grounds are huge and enclosed and will make a natural playground for any children in your party. Two hammocks and plenty of deckchairs mean that everyone can, should they wish, find a place to retreat to. There is also the large private pool to enjoy, with another shaded and furnished pergola, from where there are more views of the surrounding mountains.

Our Thoughts
Residenza al Principe is a superb choice for a family or large group, offering plenty of space as well as several inviting locations for social gatherings. The property has had a contemporary makeover, which is to an extremely high standard, so this place is very easy on the eye and set among aesthetically pleasing lawns, dotted with cypress trees and shrubs. When you come to explore, you will find the delightful medieval city of Lucca just a short distance away.

Five bedrooms, five bathrooms, three en-suite. The property is in a quiet spot, located at the end of a good road, the last 200m of which are unpaved. The garden is surrounded by a hedge. While not all rooms have wardrobes or drawers, there is ample storage space for clothing in adjacent halls and corridors. Bedroom 4 has a skylight rather than windows. Bedroom 5 has a private but not en-suite bathroom.

The pool is to the back of the property and is entered by Roman steps. The pool is entirely surrounded by very well maintained lawn, which is set with several sun loungers and deckchairs. The pool is in full sun but a well sized pergola with white curtains, containing a sofa and sun beds, provides welcoming shade. Pool size: 12m x 6m, 1.2-1.4m deep. Open all year but not heated.

Das Haus liegt sehr schön am Fuss eines Hügels mit Blick ins Grüne. Das Garten gleicht eher einem Park, sehr weitläufig und ideal für Kinder. Der nette Gärtner kommt jeden Tag und pflegt den Garten, Pool etc.
Die Aufteilung des Hauses ist ideal für 2 Familien, da sich im 1.Stock 2 getrennte Wohnungen mit je 2 Schlafzimmern und 2 Bädern sowie einem Eingangszimmer befinden. Stauraum ist jede Menge vorhanden.
Die Küche ist mit 2 Kühlschränken, 2 Gasherden und 2 Spülmaschinen ausgestattet.
Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Im Freien befindet sich ein grosser Ofen, der sich sehr gut zum Grillen und Pizza machen eignet.

Die Ausstattung in der Küche bzgl. Geschirr ist gut, jedoch etwas zusammen gewürfelt und nicht auf 8 oder gar 10 Personen ausgerichtet (Kaffeelöffel, Tassen...)

Die Beleuchtung auf der Terrasse abends ist sehr grell, kann man aber mit Kerzen wunderbar ausgleichen.
