Italian farmhouse with pool — located in the hills some twenty minutes north of Lucca, Podere Valentina is in the little hamlet of Aquilea and within walking distance of a grocery shop, whilst the elegant town of Lucca offers a wider selection of shops and restaurants in its pedestrianised centre.
This charming property is an attractive barn renovation designed in a typically Tuscan style with wood beamed ceilings, terracotta flooring and stone archways, furnished with original antiques. The property enjoys great views and has well-kept gardens with lots of shady areas and a lovely covered terrace with facilities for al-fresco dining. A small annex can be made available for 4 additional guests at an extra charge. Although, not of the same high quality as the main house, it offers sound, comfortable accommodation, perhaps most suited to teenagers or overnight guests.
