About our home

Our old 17th-century farmhouse is part of the Villa Torrigiani Estate, it is set in one of the most beautiful areas around the Lucchesian countryside.
It has a lovely outdoor swimming pool 6mx12m, with a stunning view towards Lucca and the Apennines. by the pool, there is a pleasant setting area where you can enjoy your meals, and a few hammocks to rest in, and 3 swings for the children
By the house, there is an old pizza oven, which is still functioning very well, with plenty of wood for you to use.
As you enter the ground floor of the house there is the entrance hall, to your right, there is the sitting room with TV and DVD player and plenty of movies for you to watch, then there is a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, and a reading room:
Upstairs there are 5 bedrooms,1 double room with ensuite bathroom, 2 double rooms, and 2 single rooms, that share the second bathroom.
It is a very characteristic house with still the old wooden beams and terracotta tiles both on the ceiling and on the floor.
We also have a pony and Horse, which normally we send on vacation to our nearby riding school, then if you feel like feeding while we are away our peacocks,chickens, and rabbits you are very welcome to do so, otherwise our next door neighbor can do it.
