General description

  • Main home
Restored house in a quiet and tranquil village (with a restaurant with panoramic views) in the hills north of the beautiful historic walled city of Lucca. 2 double bedrooms and 1 single bedroom, 2 bathrooms. There is a wood fire which heats all the radiators in the house, keeping the place nice and warm in the winter. Beautiful chestnut beamed ceilings. the house is located next to a chestnut forest and surrounded by olive trees. Our dog (steve) is a 5 year old rescue shepherd mix who loves to spend the day sleeping in various spots around the house. He is a big softy once he gets to know you.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • A dog
We have a shepherd mix dog, he is a rescue and pretty low maintenance as he enjoys spending his days sleeping in various spots around the house and is happy to be left at home during the day or evening, so you can explore the area. He can be nervous around strangers and other dogs so requires walking once a day locally in the woods surrounding the house away from other people and other dogs. Though we have two young children ourselves we feel that Steve would be happier with people either with no children or older children.
