Description

Capanne2

This is a beautiful apartment with a private entrance on the front part of the cottage, slightly hidden by the corner of a house. In front of the apartment is a small, well placed terrace, from which one has a magnificent view of the Apuan Alps. Inside, a wooden staircase leads upwards. On the right, two steps down, is the dining room with a typical Tuscan fireplace and a bed couch. A balcony divides the kitchen area, including a gas-stove, fridge and oven, and the dining room. Two doors lead away from the kitchen: one to a double bedroom, the other to a bathroom and shower, one step higher. The room has a number of arched windows. This was probably the “METATO” of the house (an ancient Roman term used for a room in which chestnuts were stored and left to dry). Returning to the entrance, the wooden staircase leads up to a room with a double bed and a door to a small bathroom including a sink, toilet and shower. The roof of the room is tilted and about 1 metre high at the lowest point.


About the property

IT338

Farmhouse complex with 4 beautiful apartments on a hilltop not far from Lucca. The stone farmhouse sits at 600 meters altitude and offers views over the surrounding countryside with chestnut forests, and steep wooded mountains. It is a little paradise from which one can hike all the mountain trails and visit the historical cities of central Tuscany. Gallicano with all facilities is at 10kms, Barga is at 18kms and Lucca is at 50kms. Firenze and the seaside at Forte dei Marmi are an hour’s and half drive away.

About David Saisi

Ciao,

I'm David and from 2005 I manage Le Capanne holiday house. Before I worked as an HR manager in a TLC company. From 2005 to now I have seen about 1000 persons in my property and each one has helped me increasing my love for Garfagnana area. From 2013 I'm a mountains guide and I manage the Battiferro park in Fornovolasco: we offer canyoning for families and a lot of fun.

See you soon

David

David Saisi purchased this apartment in 2005

Why David Saisi chose Lucca Area

The first time I saw The huts in 2005 fell in love with this place with spectacular views of the surrounding villages and mountains. Since then every time I come here I'm happy with my choice

marvellous, quiet idyll in the hills

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and beautifully kept property: the four apartments are discrete, so there is plenty of privacy. The pool is gorgeous and the garden well kept. A real idyll. Davide, the owner, is very helpful and has a lot of good suggestions on things to do in the area. The house is absolutely perfect if you want relaxed days in a beautiful corner of Italy.

Stunning views in an authentic setting...

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place outside the ordinary, with fantastic views, great pool area and a super friendly host this is it. A combination of an authentic old place in the most beautiful and quiet setting, however with facilities of great quality. Thanks David!

Traumhafte Lage. Paradies für Naturverbundene

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage der Wohnung ist einfach traumhaft. Die Berge liegen vor einem, der Ausblick ist herrlich. Alles ist super sauber, alles notwendige vorhanden. Der Pool ist klasse. Man sieht beim Schwimmen in die herrliche Bergwelt. Die Wandermöglichkeiten sind unbegrenzt und der Vermieter ist ein total hilfsbereiter und netter Mensch. Wir waren nicht das letzte mal dort.
