VILLA SALVIA: 1 BEDROOM, SLEEPS 2

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Lucca - Holiday house 'encantea'

Characteristic country house immersed in green fields

Characteristic and typical country house amongst green fields only 2 km from the historical walls of Lucca and close to the most important cities of art in Tuscany.The apartments can be rented separately but both family groups and large groups of friends are welcome: 15 people can be comfortably accommodated. A romantic and comfortable environment and ideal to spend an unforgettable holiday.

The salt water pool (14x7 meters) is at our guests’ disposal and set in garden of two hectares.

The great agricultural house, recently restructured, is a part of a typical 'corte lucchese' and offers four apartments, where one would like to stay longer than just a holiday!

Each apartment prides its own style and personality and all spaces offer lots of natural light, with the comfort of a true home. All the units have a kitchen, lounge room and bathroom; they are equipped with all the accessories, TV and internet wi-fi.

'Encantea'...is: Situated only 2km from the historic centre of Lucca, you’ll find yourself in one of the most beautiful areas West of the Serchio River, between green pastures and beautiful stone houses.

You’ll find tranquillity and grace at Encantea.

There are spaces where you’ll day dream. There is much care and attention to detail: which is the essence of hospitality. It’s beautiful just to sit under the veranda, read a book and fill your eyes with green. Here you’ll find two hectares of green fields, interrupted only by a mirror of blue water.

A comforting magic.

' Encantea ' is the place where one would like to stay longer than just a holiday!

Each accommodation prides it’s own style and personality and all spaces offer lots of natural light, vitality with the comfort of a true home.

You’ll find all you need and more. Travel light, and bring with you only your idea of “total relaxation”

Both Family groups and large groups of friends are welcome: 15 people can be comfortably accommodated.

Our ideas....: One can take advantage of the silence or create something different each day:

Pedal along the banks of the Serchio River, in the close vicinity of the Park on the River or across the hills on a mountain bike to the sea.

Reach Lucca’s historic centre in 5 minutes, situated in the tree-lined street of the ancient walls,

Visit Lucca’s Villas: splendid architectural witnesses of the nobility of the 1500”s

Explore the outskirts: the Coast of Versilia and the mountains of the Garfagnana, which are half an hour away by car, The “Cinque Terre” approx 50km.

Reach the important cities of Tuscany: Florence, Pisa and Siena.

Our ideas...

Visit the markets: antique and arts and crafts, the 3rd and 4th weekend of every month, the traveling market every Wednesday and Saturday.“La Strada del Vino” (the “wine tasting” road): the road for food and wine tasting connoisseurship for agricultural businesses of Lucca’s hills, local wine and oil tasting.

Our ideas....: Opera: Giacomo Puccini was born right here! There are many opportunities and occasions during the year to listen to the masterpieces of the famous musician.

Summer Festival: A summer release of live concerts of international artists in the historic Napoleon Square.

The” Lucca” September: a month of cultural events, both religious and folklore. The 13th of September is not be missed: the entire city accompanies the “Saint Volto” in an atmospheric and charming procession along the streets of the historic centre.

Murabilia: a market/exhibition of mostly rare plants and flowers, held annually in the month of September on one of the most beautiful bulwark of the cities walls. Enriched by presentations, closer examinations and competitions regarding interesting themes in this sector.

The Feast Day of Saint Zita: a beautiful floral market in the Amphitheatre Square, in memory of the patron saint of the city. Held during the week of 27th April.

Details for holiday chateau / country house Salvia, 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2, 1 Bathroom

This is a nest for two people: you’ll find it on the ground floor when you enter from the large garden. As per all the apartments at Encantea, there is ample space, made for living and relaxing. One can almost smell the perfume of the fresh and delicate décor and furniture in the entire apartment: from the large kitchen and the day area with a fireplace, to the double bedroom and the bathroom.

Beautiful villa in excellent location

  • 5 out of 5
Giovanna and Francesco have a beautiful villa just outside Lucca. It is perfectly maintained with a gorgeous swimming pool and grounds. We stayed for 10 days in a delightful, one-bedroom apartment. Giovanna gave us many helpful ideas about restaurants, shops, and trips and we had a perfect time.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 out of 5
Me and my boyfriend stayed in the Salvia villa for a week and what an amazing week it was.

Giovanna met us on our arrival and explained everything we needed to know about the villa and Lucca itself, from where to find the local supermarket to a recommendation for a lovely restaurant in the hills.

The villa, despite being the smaller of the four, was really spacious, had everything you could possibly need and was spotless. We had a table directly outside our villa where we ate our dinner a couple of nights. We also had a table available for us by the poll.

Talking of the pool, it's beautiful. Each villa is allocated loungers around the pool which is a great idea as it means you don't get any of the 'towels on the lounger reservation' stuff you get at hotels. There's lots of space around the pool so we never felt crowded, even when all the guests were around the pool.

Lucca is about half an hour walk away or a few minutes drive to the walls. It was our first visit to Lucca and it's a beautiful little place. Riding a bike along the top of the walls was a highlight.

Encantea is really close to Pisa and about an hours drive to Florence. But there are also lots of smaller towns and villages near by that are worth a look.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Encantea and I hope we'll be back there soon.

A nice place to stay close to Lucca

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed at Encatea one week during May and enjoyed it very much. The owners Francesco and Giovanna are very friedly and helpful. The property has a really big garden – absolute the same, as you can see on the pictures. Both owners are ofeten in the morning in the garden. That gives you the possibility to contact them quite easy. They are very cautious and help you with things, as fast as possible (e.g. as they saw, that we had just a little umbrella for our 8 month old baby against the sun, they directly brought us a big and good one onto our terrace). In the garden you find a little herb garden, with herbs you can use for cooking. The pool is very clean. It was nice to sit under the trees close to the pool. The appartement was clean and good eqipped. With arrival they had already placed a baby bed into our bedroom.

The poperty is very close to Lucca. It is possible to go by feet (or going out jogging in the evening on the nice big walls of Lucca). We mostly went by car to a free parking place close to the walls. The town is very nice and atmospheric.

All around we can recommend to choose Encatea for a nice stay close to Lucca.

Thak you to Francesco and Giovanna

Beautiful apartment in prime location in Lucca

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing holiday. The apartment was clean, comfortable and well maintained and had all the amenities necessary for us and our 18 month old daughter. The shared pool was wonderful and we had many a happy hour swimming and splashing around in it to cool down at the end of the day. The apartment is in an excellent location just outside Lucca (approximately 35 mins walk to the city walls) and provides a perfect base for exploring the beautiful region of Tuscany. For that reason we would recommend having a car. In addition there are several beaches 20 - 30 mins drive away. Lucca itself is a lovely peaceful city with lots of places to eat and drink. The city walls provide a great walk and there are lots of parks for young children. We would definitely consider returning and would most definitely recommend this accommodation for other families or couples looking to enjoy a holiday that combines sightseeing with an opportunity to have some relaxing days by the pool or at the beach.

Séjour à Lucca

  • 5 out of 5
A peu de distance de la très agréable ville de Lucques (vaut le détour!), nous avons passé les premiers jours de nos vacances italiennes dans l'appartement Salvia: bien équipé, relativement spacieux, propre... avec le lit d'enfant que nous avions demandé, tout y était à notre arrivée! En plus de cela: ambiance relax, le calme de la campagne, piscine très propre, magasins à proximité... et n'oublions pas l'accueil charmant de Giovanna. Très bon rapport prix-qualité, même si ce n'est pas bon marché.
