About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom property with mountain views and private swimming pool

Diciannove is a beautifully renovated house in the quiet mountain village of Vetteglia above Bagni di Lucca. Vetteglia is a small working village and offers a peaceful base for exploring the Tuscan countryside in the Garfagnana.

The property has 3 double bedrooms, shower room and ensuite bathroom, large sitting room with double sofa bed, separate dining room with feature fireplace and a large fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher. There is a large terrace with swimming pool (May-Sept), sun loungers, table, chairs and BBQ and additional areas for outdoor dining on the loggia and under the shade of a hazelnut tree. Views over the mountain are magnificent. The property has been recently restored to a high standard and enjoys wi-fi internet access and satellite TV. There is a large collection of DVDs, books and games available for all ages.

Horse riding, white water rafting, mountain biking, paragliding and quad biking is available locally and guests booking at Diciannove will receive a booklet of discounts worth up to £125 per person. See www.bagnidiluccavventura.it for more details.

Bagni di Lucca is 8km away with all facilities including restaurants, supermarkets, banks and a wonderful spa. The nearest shop is 1km away and offers a wide variety of provisions. The beautiful walled city of Lucca is a 45 minute drive and the sites of Florence, Siena and San Gimignano are all in easy driving range. Additionally the beach at Viareggio and the ski slopes of Abetone are both within a one hour drive making this location a perfect base for all activities.

Babysitting and chef service can be arranged on request and groceries can be purchased in advance so that you can arrive to a stocked fridge and cupboard. Travel cots and high chairs are available for an additional fee.

Diciannove offers something for everyone. You won't be disappointed!

About Ginette

My husband and I are healthcare workers in the North of England. We love the Italian lifestyle and use the Villa as often as our holiday entitlement allows!

Ginette purchased this house in 2008

Why Ginette chose Lucca Area

We fell in love with the property the first time that we looked out of the Loggia over the garden and saw the amazing mountain views.

What makes this house unique

Vetteglia offers a fantastic base for seeing the Garfagnana and Northern Tuscany. It offers the best of both worlds. Beautiful scenery and tranquility but with the opportunity to see the famous sites in easy driving range.

pretty mountain home

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable villa above Bagni do Lucca with good sized pool. We loved being within a small Italian village, everyone very friendly.

The owners provided an excellent set of instructions before we left and Doreen and Sofia further help after we arrived. The villa was spacious and had everything we needed, a further plus was a very comfortable living room with lots of books and dvd/tv if you needed.

We had excellent weather so were outdoors and in the pool most days but had nice trips out to local mountain villages and Lucca (sightseeing and market).

Would definitely recommend the villa to others and hope to return ourselves next year.

Tranquil Italian Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful Villa. Everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. The kids enjoyed using the board games and pool toys, and the rooms were more than comfortable. We were also fortunate enough to get very warm weather in which the pool was a perfect place to spend the afternoon while cracking as many hazelnuts you could eat that had dropped from the trees. The only (minor) details that would have made our stay absolutely perfect is if the pool had been warmer ( Ice cold even with full sun at 34 c) and the drive up and back down the mountain was a bit shorter.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property situated in the hills above Bagni Di Lucca. The terrace and pool give way to fantastic views over the valley and across to the other side. Unfortunately for us, we got to use them on a limited number of occasions during our weeks' stay as the weather was very up and down but even so, the views are stunning whatever the weather. Great base also for exploring the local towns and villages, such as Lucca, Barga and Bagni Di Lucca. We even ventured as far away as Florence which is also very accessible by road and well worth the time to travel there which is under 2 hours.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, thank you for a wonderful place to rest and relax. The property is wonderful with lovely furnishings and everything you could need.

The terrace and swimming pool with that stunning view is awesome. The listing description is very accurate and the property is immaculately cleaned

and well maintained.

Would thoroughly recommend this property and the owners are extremely helpful with great customer service.

Thank you once again.

idyllic and tranquil.

  • 5 of 5

The description of this property was accurate except for one element - it is even better than described. This home is luxurious whilst retaining total authenticity with the region. The garden is on two levels, has a flood lit pool and borders with the pastures and mountains beyond. Beautiful. The property is very well maintained and easy to feel at home in. The owners have ensured that there is a wealth of information available about the facilities in the house, the local area and trips to be enjoyed further afield. We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and terrific food of cafes and restaurants in Bagni as well as day trips to Lucca and Florence. Our favourite times though were spent exploring the nearby areas of natural beauty. The best part of every day was coming back to our home for the week and the peace and beauty there. You need a car to stay here in order to drive down the mountain road to the village of Bagni, ( there is a bus that runs 4 times a day), but you don't need to go far to have a fantastic holiday. We would thoroughly recommend it.

This large, traditional house has been renovated to a very high standard. The facilities are excellent and the views across the hills are superb. The location is very convenient for trips around Tuscany. We look forward to returning.
