1 bedroom 1 bathroom 2 people In Resort with Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Francesca 1 is a romantic Tuscan villa, attached on either side to another villa. Immediately outside it has a lawned garden which is furnished with a table and chairs with umbrella.

Inside there is a open plan room with traditional Tuscan villa features such as the wooden beam and terracotta ceiling, and exposed stone walls. The entire villa is paved in large modern terracotta tiles. Across half the room is a wooden mezzanine floor. Immediately on entering is a dining table which seats six.

Below the mezzanine floor is a comfortable lounge area. A double sofa and wicker armchair are huddled around an open fireplace made of the local stone. To one side is a TV. To the back of the room is a bathroom with shower.

The kitchenette is to the front of the room and has two windows above the work area, looking out into the garden. It has built-in units and is fully equipped, including gas hobs, oven and a large fridge with separate freezer compartment.

Wooden steps lead up to the mezzanine floor where there is the double bedroom. To one side is a wooden wardrobe and a matching chest of drawers. Light is provided by a window in the bedroom.

The mezzanine floor is open over the living area and looks down on the kitchen and dining area.
Francesca 1 has an intercommunicating door to Francesca 2. This door remains closed and locked. Should a guest book both villas, it can be opened.

Villa Ricetro is a collection of Tuscan villas located in the hills overlooking the plains of Viareggio. There are pretty views of the forest covered hills surrounding the estate and offers beautiful views across to the Torre del Lago, or Puccini lake and even the sea. From the property there is easy access to Camaiore and Lucca. Within walking distance is the little nearby village with a couple of restaurants. This is a great location to visit the Puccini Opera festival held every summer near the lake.

In the perfectly maintained garden there is a fenced pool area. This is located a short distance away, down a slope in the garden. It's a lovely area with plenty of furnishings to relax under the warm Tuscan sun.

Within the garden there is a shared stone barbeque near which is a table and chairs. The three villas each also have their own private areas, directly in front of their entrances which are furnished.

The pool is located about 10metres away from the villas in a fully fenced area on a lower level of the garden. From the area there are fantastic views of the forest covered hills, just beyond, on clear days, it is possible to see the plains of Viareggio, Torre del Lago, or Puccini lake and even the sea.  The pool is not completely private, the pool of Antica Poesia is situated next to it.

The pool is a prefabricated, irregular shaped pool. It is surrounded by a lovely wooden sun deck which is furnished with sun beds. Around the pool area there are also a couple of tables with chairs and umbrellas. Slightly above it is a small covered terrace.
The pool is salt cleanse and measures 7x4.7 metres with a depth of 1.2 metres. It is open from May through October, weather permitting. To one side iron steps provide access to the cool, crystal water.
