About our home

PLEASE NOTE: We are fully booked for 2019 and 2020.

Our house is a very rustic, very charming, converted barn located in a quiet corner of the small hillside village of Pieve di Controne, which is part of Bagni di Lucca in Northern Tuscany.

Upstairs the main living area consists of a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area under a beautiful exposed beam roof. Downstairs it has two bedrooms (both of which have a double bed, seating and lots of wardrobe space) and a modern bathroom with bath, shower, sink, toilet, and bidet. The furniture throughout is very tasteful and inkeeping with the building.

Due to the thick stone walls, the house is cool in Summer and cosy in winter.

There is a private garden with fantastic views over the mountains, and down to Bagni di Lucca below. The garden has an outdoor table and benches, as well as garden chairs. There is plenty of sun during the day and fabulous sunsets over the mountains in the evening.

The house is perfect for those looking to explore Tuscany and the surrounding areas, those looking for an outdoor activity holiday, or those just wanting peace and tranquility. Lucca is 40mins, Florence 90mins, or even glamorous Portofino is only 150mins (all by car).

There is always someone on hand in the local village to meet and greet and to help out with any issues

Bagni di Lucca is a comune in Northern Tuscany, consisting of 25 villages and countless mountainside hamlets. It translates as "Baths of Lucca" due to its thermal springs. It became popular in the 19th Century after being known as a favourite of Napoleon's sister and also attracted writers, artists and poets to the area due to its beauty and climate. Byron and Shelley and the Barrett Brownings were among those who liked to visit.

Bagni di Lucca itself has lots to offer including great restaurants, a fabulous outdoor pool, hiking, rafting, mountain biking, or horse back riding.

Pieve di Controne is one of the 25 villages of Bagni di Lucca, approx 8 kilometeres from the centre. It is perched on a mountainside giving it some of the best views in the area. Very few people live in the village and the barn is located in a quiet corner, meaning you can enjoy perfect isolation if you wish.

We would recommend hiring a car and there is ample free parking. If you prefer to get around by public transport there is a train station with services to the airport and all major cities, and a very reliable cab service. Cost of a cab from the local train station to the house is €20 and from Pisa airport to the house is €100
