Near the city of Lucca, in the very characteristic village of Pescaglia a Beautiful Newly Restored Old Tuscan two bedrooms village house with a very tastefully landscaped rose garden and great hill view. The village is very quite and the house fenced and very private. Set In the Nationally Protected Forest of the Apuan Alps, it is the ideal place for mountain. Biking, walking, rock climbing, great for fishing or just chilling out. The villages around are all charming and full of character with local shops, good restaurants and bars. Lucca, with its stunning walled 'old town' it's about 30 minute drive from the house and there is also a local bus service few times a day and the train in the valley.

About Antonella Gemignani

I'm a very responsible, friendly, outgoing person.

I have always lived in multicultural environments and I love to travel and get to know new cultures.

Antonella Gemignani purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Antonella Gemignani chose Pescaglia

I felt in love with this quite and unpolluted area and the friendly village, the nature with the forest and the rivers just outside your door step. A fantastic location, with the advantage of being at the Opera or go to the sea and shopping only within 30 minutes drive and in 10 minutes being seated in the most amazing real and not touristic restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

When you stay home, you are always in silence and peace and in the sun. The house was a great choice to me, an old structure with an hidden private garden, where nobody can see you even if you are in the middle of the village.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, spotlessly clean property in gorgeous surroundings. We were well looked after by the lovely Nicola. This is an excellent base for exploring the area.

A lovely host, house and garden up in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

Indeed a very nicely renovated house in an old italian village up in the mountains. A bit far from bigger cities and the coast (at least in time, as the small winding roads do take their time) but a lovely place to relax. Only disturbance was the barking of the close by neighbours dogs that kept us awake one night. When the dogs were behaving we had lovely evenings and nights. The few degrees cooler weather up in the mountains were perfact when coming from the hot sizzling beach or city.

Gut ausgestattet, sauber, wunderschöner Garten, gemütliches Haus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus und besonders der Garten haben uns sehr gut gefallen. Es liegt mitten in einem Dorf und war sehr sauber, gut ausgestattet und gemütlich. Es ist nicht direkt mit dem Auto zu erreichen, sondern das Auto stellt man in der Dorfmitte ab und läuft dann zum Haus (nur ca 2 Minuten). Man kann Wanderungen Unternehmen und Tagestouren nach Lucca, Pisa oder an den Strand lohnen sich auch sehr. Das einzige Manko sind die Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, es gibt einen kleinen Laden im Dorf, aber für größere Supermärkte muss man eine Weile Auto fahren - war aber für uns kein Problem, da wie sowieso viel unterwegs waren und den Einkauf dann immer auf der Rückfahrt erledigt haben. Vielen Dank, dass wir hier bleiben dürften, und ich kann das Haus an jeden weiterempfehlen, der ein paar ruhige Tage weg vom Trubel möchte.
