Italy vacation rental - Rosario is a charming and attractive Tuscan farmhouse located on a private estate just outside the walled town of Lucca, with his restaurants, weekly market and splendid historic buildings.
Fully restored by craftsmen using local materials, the property has oak-beamed ceilings, terracotta flooring and classic Tuscan furniture whilst offering all modern conveniences. Each bedroom has its own allocated bathroom (three are ensuite) and the house comfortably accommodates twelve.
Rosario enjoys a good position, just minutes from vibrant Lucca - a remarkable walled city that is perfect for shopping, eating out or simply sightseeing. Pisa and Florence are also within easy striking distance. The coast is within easy reach of this villa (for the blue flag beaches of Tuscany, including fashionable Forte dei Marmi) and the Chianti Classico area is similarly within day trip distance, as are gems such as Siena and San Gimignano.
“A great villa, full of authentic Italian character and only 10 minutes from Lucca. A lovely place to return to after a day's sightseeing - and with so many wonderful places easily accessible from Rosario your only difficult decision will be which direction to head in! The perfect base from which to explore the delights of Northern Tuscany.”
