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.

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.

Stunning views from a beautifully kept property

  • 5 of 5

The patio and pool area provide the perfect setting to enjoy the wonderful view of the mountains and little villages nestling amongst them.

The villas is very well appointed and comfortable. Every need has been catered for, and the neighbours are friendly.

This is a place to return to.

Amazing Holiday !

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa with the most amazing views. The pool was excellent. The local people in the village were very friendly. Richard and Ginette were very informative and helpful. We visited Florence, Pisa, Lucca and many villages in the area. The train links from Fornoli were extremely good. Our first time to Italy and it has made us want to re-visit and explore more. The villa is equipped with everything you could possibly need.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic Tuscan home this is it. The drive up the mountains was beautiful, I will warn you though the roads are extremely narrow and curvy so be careful driving but once you reach the house and see the view from the backyard it is breathtaking. Richard and Ginette were so helpful and always gave a quick response to any questions I had before we got to Italy. And once we arrived Sofia was able to help with things in the house (the heat and wifi weren't working but she had that fixed asap) we very much enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous holiday with beautiful views of the surrounding area. Went quad biking to the canyon with Lucca Quads which was fantastic! Sofia organised it & her husband was our guide. He was absolutely brilliant taking us to see the views & allowing for photos etc. Would definitely recommend. Visited Pisa, Florence & Lucca all in a week & even managed a day relaxing by the pool. Thank you for sharing your lovely villa.

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.
