VILLA TIMO: 2 BEDROOMS, SLEEPS 4

Photos and Description of this 2 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.

Encantea welcomes you with the warmth of the owners. They let you have your holiday, but are near if needed. Beautiful rooms, clean, lovely swimming pool, nice furniture, cosy, just likable. 5 car minutes from Lucca, but in the quiet surroundings. The best combination of 2: enjoying the lovely city Lucca en relaxing at your apartment.



We do hope to come back ones ("unfortunately" we want to see the whole world, so a second stay at a place is difficult). Therefore we hope that many other people have the chance to enjoy this perfect place!

LOVELY APARTMENT IN A FANTASTIC SETTING

  • 5 out of 5
Apartment was well kitted out situated very close to to Lucca in a fantastic setting. A beautiful pool and well maintained gardens surrounding. The owners were very helpful throughout our stay and recommended some lovely restaurants in the hills with amazing views on the way. We enjoy coming to lucca and this is somewhere we'd think of coming back to.

WUNDERSCHÖNES FERIENDOMIZIL

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben im August 2012 zwei Wochen bei Giovanna und Francesco verbracht und wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit dort. Encantea liegt Luftlinie 2 km von Lucca entfernt, aber es bietet sich an, die Stadt mit dem Auto oder Fahrrad zu erreichen, da durch den Fluss kein direkter Weg möglich ist.
Die Ferienwohnung war top gepflegt und sehr sauber. Alles, was man in Bad und Küche braucht, war vorhanden und die Einrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll. Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt.
An das Salzwasser im Pool mussten wir uns erst gewöhnen, aber er war stets absolut sauber. Auch der Garten wurde von den beiden Vermietern täglich gepflegt. Wir haben es sehr geschätzt, dass beide jeden Tag für eine paar Stunden auf dem Gelände waren, da sie für jede Frage und jedes Anliegen ein offenes Ohr haben und uns viele gute Tips geben konnten.
Alles in allem war es sehr empfehlenswert! Auf jeden Fall 5 dicke Sterne!

THE PERFECT PLACE TO BE!

  • 5 out of 5
Encantea is the perfect place to stay for a holiday in the beautiful Toscane. We stayed in the appartment "Timo" and had a wonderful time there. It's very tasteful fitted and everything you need on your holiday is available. The hospitality of Giovanna and Francesco is enormous. They are always busy to keep the place in a really perfect condition and nothing is to much trouble for them to make your holiday an unforgettable period. The location is perfect, restful in the beautiful countryside and still ideal situated to visit the interesting places of Toscane. We can recommand this residence to everyone who wants to make the most of their holiday.
Giovanna and Francesco, thank you for your great service!

UN BELLO SOGGIORNO!

  • 5 out of 5
Das Appartrment "Timo" befindet sich im Mittelgeschoss eines alten restaurierten Bauernhauses, das ca. 2 km nördlich von der Stadtmauer Luccas entfernt liegt. Es besitzt eine Klimaanlage, die wir trotz heisser Tagestemperaturen im Juli aber nie genutzt haben. Das Appartment besitzt eine kleine Küche (Gasherd, Backofen, Mikrowelle, Kühlschrank und Gefrierfach), ein Badezimmer (Dusche) mit einem kleinem Vorzimmer, in welchem sich ein weiteres Waschbecken und eine Waschmaschinen befinden. Das Appartement ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, die Böden sind gefliest; an den Decken befinden sich Pinienbalken, die dem gesamten Appartment einem typisch toskanischen Stil verleihen. Des weiteren hat man in dem Appartement WLAN - DSL Zugang.
Das Bauernhaus beinhaltet zur Zeit 4 Appartements (1x 2-Personen, 2x 4-Personen, 1x 6 Personen) und befindet sich auf einem äußerst weiträumigen Gelände. Es gibt einen großen Swimmingpool (ca. 15m x 8m) der mit schwach konzentriertem Salzwasser gefüllt ist (an Stelle von chloriertem Wasser), was wir als äußerst angenehm empfanden. Der Pool wird sehr intensiv von den Vermietern gepflegt. Ferner besteht auch die Möglichkeit, auf dem Gelände zu grillen; hierzu stehen zwei große Holzkohlengrillgeräte zur Verfügung.
Allerdings sollte man eher die zahlreichen gastronomischen Kleinode in und um Lucca herum aufsuchen, um die lucchesische Küche besser kennen zu lernen.
Die Vermieter kümmern sich äußerst emsig um das gesamte Anwesen und das Wohlergehen der Gäste; sie sprechen auch etwas Englisch. Profunde Italienischkenntnisse sind von Vorteil.
Mit dem PKW erreicht man in knapp 30 Minuten (ca. 20km) die Badestrände um Viareggio. In der gleichen Zeit ist auch Pisa zu erreichen. Wanderungen (auch mit dem Rad) entlang des Serchio-Flusses oder in die Berge um Lucca sind zu empfehlen. Florenz erreicht man in ca. 1h mit dem Pkw.
