Villa Patricia 5 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms | Gated Pool | Small Party Rate | WiFi | Sleeps 10
This tastefully restored stone property sits on the picturesque, wooded slopes above the delightful town of Bagni di Lucca. Perched on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Le Croce, its situation makes the most of the panoramic vista that surrounds the property. Step out on to one of the terraces and you are immediately greeted with far reaching views over the green hills and mountains of the Val di Lima and Serchio valleys, ideal for nature lovers and walkers.
The terraced gardens of Villa Patricia follow the contours of the hillside, and slope down to a wooded area. Inviting areas for relaxing and enjoying the peaceful setting have been created throughout the garden and by the pool. Inside, the house is comfortable and welcoming, with large, soft sofas, a well equipped kitchen, and traditional features such as exposed stone walls and wood beams.
Nearby Barga (20km) hosts a music festival during the summer months, whilst Castelnuovo di Garfagnana (30km) marks the start of many walks through the countryside and mountains.
To the south, the glorious town of Lucca is not to be missed and is easily accessible for an afternoon's sightseeing. For those who are looking for some sea air, the popular seaside town of Viareggio is under an hour's drive and the villages of the Cinque Terre are well worth a visit.
Parties paying the Small Party Rate will have use of the three bedrooms on the first floor.
The internet connection is delivered by MiFi, which is via a mobile network device (payable locally).
