HUGE PRIVATE GARDEN, PRIVATE POOL, JACUZZI, PLAY AREA. ENJOY THE REAL FREEDOM!

Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday villa in Lucca - Casa Mennone

9 Bedrooms, Sleeps up18 people, Air Conditioning, Amazing View on Lucca Area

This holiday house is a magnificent holiday villa near Lucca, dating back originally to around 1600. The home for centuries of farmers who grew corn and cultivated vines and olives on the surrounding land on behalf of the noble families of the time. The farmhouse was restored by our family in the 80s and opened as a holiday home in 1987. The holiday house is a typical Tuscan farmhouse in the heart of the countryside outside Lucca, overlooking the plain of Lucca, just a few kilometres from the city walls and within easy reach of Tuscany’s historic centres of art and culture, the sea and the Apuan Alps.

The holiday house is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing holiday and still have the opportunity to discover the art, culture and typical cuisine of the region.

Guests feel completely at home in the spacious, comfortable interiors, brightly decorated and furnished with care.

Outside in the large garden, you will find a circular swimming pool, sun loungers, ample shade, children’s play area, hydromassage tub and magnificent views over the plain, all of which make the “Casa Mennone” a unforgettable holiday destination.

Self catering Holiday Villa, spacious and welcoming that can accommodate large groups up to 18 people.

.

Kids will enjoy the round swimming pool and the huge private garden with roses, lemons trees, pomegranates and hydrangeas.

This tipycal Tuscan house among quite and green is plunged in vineyards and olive groves, among quiet and green, in the hills just north of Lucca.Great view over the Lucca plain.The villa is sett on two levels.The entrance in the spacious dining room with table and fireplace joins the kitchen through two arches.The kitchen is equipped with five ring stoves, oven, microwave oven, fridge and dishwasher, linked to another dining room by a door where are one expresso coffee machine and one for long coffee.There are also 2 bathrooms with shower, furnished WC/bidet and 1 bedroom with access on the terrace. On the first floor you can find a big living room with sofas and armchairs satellite tv, 6 double bedrooms, a bedroom with French bed, 2 bedrooms with twin beds. a bathroom with bath and shower and 3 baths with showers. The rustic-style farmhouse has got girder ceiling furnishing with some antique furniture and iron beds.Every bedroom benefits from A/C.The two wings fully interconnecting offer spacious rooms to comfortably accommodate 17/18 people.

Near Lucca but in open countryside: The surrounding area offers: jogging/hiking trails, horseback riding, mountain biking, fabulous restaurants and wines, and the traditions, customs, and history of the area.

We are located 8km from the city of Lucca, with its origins dating back to 180 A.D., and easy access via the motorways or railway station to all tourist areas and areas of interest found throughout Tuscany, including Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano, Siena, and the beaches of Versilia.

Lucca: At times we read that the inhabitants of Lucca, The Lucchesi, built their landscape 'as if their only preoccupation were beauty'. It is a varied and generous landscape, abounding in life as well as silences, paths between the woods, meadows and picturesque medieval villages. An island of nature and of history that is situated in the centre of north-western Tuscany, it enjoys an enviable position a few minutes away from the sea and less than an hour by car from Florence. It borders on the province of Pisa, and is surrounded by the Apennine mountains and the spurs of the Apuan Alps. Hemmed in by its walls, the city reveals itself a little it at a time. Only by walking along the narrow streets of the historic centre and visiting the more than one hundred churches and almost the same number of palace can one discover the mystery and magic of a past that abounds in the history, culture and architecture of various epochs. Everything in the city of Lucca is to be seen.

Review Title : 207389 - "Casa Mennone"



"I and 12 of my family and friends met at Casa Mennone for Christmas and stayed for two weeks. We

loved the house. It was nicely decorated and furnished (rustic country style) and very cosy and comfortable with a personal touch. It was clean and well maintained. It had everything you could wish for in the way of appliances, crockery, glasses etc. The owners, Loretta and Giuseppe, were more than kind and helpful, always available with advice and tips. We stayed there over winter and it was fantastic with a roaring log fire but I would definitely be great in summer with the lovely large garden and beautiful pool. The location of the house is great (Lucca is 20 minutes away) and it has a wonderful view down the valley also at night. There are great walks up the hill behind the house. I can recommend the house highly

We are Giuseppe and Loretta and we bought the house “Casa Mennone” in 1982. After restoring the oldest part of the house we began to rent it in 1987. We had welcomed guests from all over the world for more than 25 years. Over the years we have made the house more welcoming and equipped with every comfort to ensure you a nice vacation both to adults and children. Now, with the help of our son Mario and our daughter Elisa we will be happy to meet you and join you in appreciating the beauty that the city of Lucca offers while enjoying some of the excellent food and local wines.

Absolutely LOVED our stay

  • 5 out of 5
We came to Casa Mennone with a group of friends and family, all together there were 11 adults. We had the most amazing time! The house was beautiful! It could have easily accommodated a party nearly twice our size. We made use of the large dining table, the covered terrace, and the hot tub EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. We used the pizza oven 2 nights, grilled out once, and actually had the local cook, Rosanna come in two nights. SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! In addition, our hosts, Loretta and Giuseppe, and their grown children, Elisa and Mario, made our stay truly outstanding. When we were completely lost, Loretta came to meet us and lead us where we needed to go... twice! We also got to visit Elisa's organic farm next door, which was a great experience. Lucca, which is an easy drive, was one of our favorite places. We also made easy day trips to Florence, and even to a small town near Cortona. All in all, we cannot wait to go back. Until then, I will be missing it every day! If you want to visit Tuscany, you must stay here!
