Overview

About the property

***If interested, write a MESSAGE ("ask owner a question"), not a direct booking request (as i will be able to reply quicker). Thank you : )***

Rancho del Cocco is a panoramic house in the hills, charmingly decorated with vintage home furnishings and old paintings.

Surrounded by hectares of oliveyards, it features a fenced garden with a 8 metres long swimming pool, olive trees, beach chairs, sunbeds and much more. A small paradise less than 15 minutes from Lucca!

When my grandfather Valente came back from New York at the beginning of the 20th century, he wanted to build a house in the hills with a "beautiful view in every direction you look".

Rancho del Cocco is the result of long works of renovation, a fine country house charmingly decorated with vintage home furnishings and old paintings, surrounded by hectares of oliveyards in the Lucca hills, where the best olive oil in the world is produced.

The house has a fenced garden with olive trees and a swimming pool (about 8 metres long and 4 metres wide, 140 cm deep).

House, garden and pool are completely private, no shared areas!

Pleasant stay and beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The property was what we were expecting and much more, we would love to come back - it's in a beautiful setting but only 10 minutes into Lucca, 45 minutes to Pisa and Florence.

The pool is large and in a private well kept fenced oliveyard.

Giacomo has been an excellent host and had great advice about places to eat and visit.

Recommended and we hope to return!

A small gem in the Tuscan hills!

  • 5 of 5

We have been so lucky to find this property in this charming corner of tuscany - super clean, super quiet and super price, at least the one we paid was clearly below the average in the Lucca hills area : - )

The house is huge, although we were only four people there is plenty of space for more, two bathrooms and a very beautiful and complete old-style kitchen : - )

We loved the private oliveyard with the roman well and the big swimming pool, it is definitely bigger than it looks in the pictures, there is a lot of space to swim and chill out - and of course the amazing panoramas from every room, they were stunning : - )

Only one small downside, the wi-fi is fast on ground and first floor but not easy to reach in the second floor bedroom!

Thank you Guacomo, you have been very kind and we really hope to come back!
