Il Piccolo Eremo

Tuscany - Lucca


The iconic tower of Pisa is not all there is to see here - take a walk along the river and discover many treasures both old and new in this Italian college town. Lucca just a short ride north is one of the most well preserved walled cities in all of Italy. It is the gem in the Tuscan crown and loved by all who have passed through its gates - you too will want to return again and again.

Il Piccolo Eremo – Lucca - Tuscany

4 Bedrooms (1 suite, 3 double) – Pool

 

Il Piccolo Eremo is part of a 344-acre estate, set among the vineyards and olive orchards of a typical Tuscan working olive estate. This splendid, recently converted house dates from the 1600's. It was built for a Cardinal, the villa's original resident, and is set high on a hill, overlooking the estate, with a view of Lucca and the surrounding landscape. Nature lovers will enjoy the walking trails on the estate and in the local hills and the nearby Cinqueterre. Pisa, Florence, Siena, Volterra and many other charming Tuscan hill towns are within easy driving distance for daytrips and Florence is easily reached by rail from Lucca. Lucca, a famous and elegant walled city has an amiable small-town atmosphere and distinctive galleries and restaurants, is just four kilometres away and can be reached by bus. Tennis facilities and a small golf course are nearby; a restaurant and coffee bar (with bus stop) are about one kilometre downhill from the villa.

Three stories provide spacious and comfortable living space. Rooms throughout the villa have traditional terracotta floors, beamed ceilings and are elegantly furnished with family antiques (although beds and mattresses are new). Guests staying at Il Piccolo Eremo will need a car, even if they plan to use public transportation for some daytrips. There is a supermarket about 5 minutes away by car.  

The villa is set on a hill and although the driveway is paved with two tracks, it is narrow difficult for a large van to navigate, so most guest prefer renting two cars.

Ground floor (sleeps 4): Fully-equipped kitchen with white Carrara marble countertops, dishwasher, stone sink, breakfast table, traditional brick wood oven and modern stove and oven; dining room with wood-beamed ceilings and partly exposed stone walls with door opening to pergola; a study with double sleep sofa; 1 bathroom with shower en suite with the study; separate little cottage with 1 queen bedroom suite with bathroom with shower; handicapped accessible, laundry room with washer.

Second floor (sleeps 2): Living room with fireplace (originally a study), a master bedroom with king-sized bed, corner fireplace and beautiful view from unique arched windows; four steps down to master an en suite full bathroom with separate stall shower and Jacuzzi tub.

Third floor (sleeps 4+2): 1 queen bedroom, en suite bathroom with shower; 1 suite consisting of a bedroom with twin beds that can be joined to make a queen bed, plus a sitting room with double sleep sofa and en suite bathroom with shower over tub. Guests staying in the twin bedroom must pass through the sitting room to reach the hall or the bathroom, so it is good for families with kids, but not for two couples.  

Outdoors there are furnished pergola, a large salt-water pool and covered al fresco dining area, set amongst Luccan olive groves, and a parking. It is possible to hike on the estate.  

Il Piccolo Eremo is centrally air-conditioned. Amenities include washing machine, satellite TV telephone, DVD player, Wi-Fi and wall safe. The owners, who live on the estate, will welcome you with incomparable hospitality. This is a charming farmhouse which gives you an opportunity to meet a wonderful Italian family that speaks English well. If they are in residence, they will invite you to dinner once during your stay.
