Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Sep-2016
Farmhouse in San Giusto, Nr. Lucca, Tuscany, Italy - Peaceful Location, Nearest Airport: Pisa 30 Km, Lucca 15 Minutes, Firenze 40 Minutes

Built in the foothills less than five miles from the ancient walled city of Lucca, this charming property stands in its own twenty-acre estate. Lovely converted into a confortable and attractive,nice furnished country house,once the building was used to store the young lemon trees during the winter monthsand from this it takes the name La Limonaia (the Lemon House). La Limonaia stands alongside the owner's home. The property is surrounded by a large, well-kept garden-ideal for relaxing and for al fresco parties and dinners. On a higher level than the house, olive trees ring the pool area which offers panoramic view of the San Giusto di Compito valley below.

About the Owner

I was born in 1952, I'm married to a medical pathologist and i am family doctor,

I love the countryside and my father bought the house, my main goal was to make this place beautiful.

The guest house was renovated in 1997 respecting the environment and the spirit of the place.

I love to show the traditions of the place.

I often make bread and pizza in the old wood-burning oven.(often served to guests).

For anyone wanting to sample the real,unspoilt Tuscany, this is the place.'Limonaia' is a rustic delight with all mod cons & the most beautifully situated swimming pool you could wish for. The house is immaculate, tastefully furnished (the beds covered in beautiful embroidered linens) with a well-equipped kitchen. However, nearby villages have simple & delicious food available should you not wish to cook. There is ample garden furniture for lounging around, eating 'al fresco' & simply enjoying the proximity of the olive grove, lemon trees, kiwi & pomegranate trees. A most delicious aroma tantalised us every time we left the house & we discovered it came from the vine at the back door where pretty bunches of grapes hung down above an old stone sink.

We travelled with our 3 children (aged 24, 17 & 15) who loved the place just as much as we did - swimming, playing football in the grounds, topping up their tan on the loungers beside the pool - perfect! Then, plenty of beautiful places to meander around. Lucca was a favourite (very close by) where we hired a 5 seater bike & pedalled our way around the town walls, great fun.

The owners, who also live in the extensive grounds, are charming & most helpful - sharing their love of the country & the tuscan passion for food & culture.

This was our first visit & it couldn't have been more perfect - a real gem of a place. We can't wait to return.
