Lucca, rural vacation apartments a short distance from the town itself.
Antico Casale Mugnani enjoys a stunning position among the olive groves of the Lucca hills. South facing, the property is bathed in sunlight all year round making this a perfect vacation rental choice even in the winter months. The immediate views over vineyards and olive groves, churches and villas are typically Tuscan, and there are distant views over and even beyond the Lucca plain.
The house dates from the sixteenth century and has been recently restored to its original glory using local stone and traditional craftsmanship. The main house and a second building have been converted to five delightful holiday apartments offering a combination of local tradition and modern comfort that will ensure an unforgettable visit.
A large landscaped garden surrounds the house and there are spectacular views from the large salt-water swimming pool on the edge of the property. The outdoor spaces are well supplied with tables, chairs and sunbeds, so there is always somewhere to relax and take in the delightful surroundings.
The beautiful walled city of Lucca is 15 minutes drive away, and Pisa (40 min) and Florence (50 min) are within easy reach. The famous villas and gardens of Lucca are a short distance away and many are open for visits through most of the year. Matraia is on the 'Strada del Vino' (the local wine trail) and there are several wineries nearby that are open to the public.
All the apartments have sunny aspects and wonderful views over the nearby hills, the plain of Lucca and the mountains beyond.
