The Country House

Surrounded by chestnut forests, olive groves and vineyards, La Casetta sits on a slope shaded by a magnificent Cedar of Lebanon tree and overlooks one of the most beautiful estates near Lucca, in Tuscany. Retaining its rustic look, Casetta has modern comforts, including central heating.

The two story house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a sitting room, dining room, living room and kitchen. Hairdryers are in each bathroom, and all linens for bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and dining area are provided. Afternoon breezes make Casetta comfortable in the summer, fans are provided and windows are equipped with retractable screens. The dining room has a grand fireplace making it particularly cozy for chilly autumn evenings.

Outside the kitchen door is the kitchen herb garden, with all the traditional Tuscan flavors. A covered pergola bedecked with jasmine overlooks the view. A charcoal grill completes the setting for a summer meal.

Also overlooking the view is a splash pool for the hotter summer months – in site of the pergola, it is safe and fun for children and big enough for adults to cool off in.

The area is blessed with myriad walking trails of various lengths, and maps are provided for guests who want to explore. To add to guests’ Tuscan experience, we can provide catered meals, cooking lessons, guided tours of Lucca and Tuscany, wine tours and tastings, and van service. For real relaxation, massage sessions are available on site.

When guests arrive they are greeted with maps of the area, restaurant recommendations, sightseeing/shopping information and . . . a glass of wine and traditional Tuscan cookies.
