Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Bagni di Lucca - IT4482

Villa in Riolo - Bagni di Lucca, Lucca Province, Tuscany, Italy - Peaceful Location, Mountain Walks With Bagni Di Lucca 15 Minutes Away

Only 10 minutes from the town of Bagni di Lucca, and beautifully positioned within its delightful hills, lies Orchard Heights. A newly constructed house that is surrounded by an abundance of fruit trees, cocooned by a chestnut forest and is completely secluded sitting in its own grounds of 3 acres. The house is detached and consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining area and living room. There is a private swimming pool and a large terrace that borders the property. Following the successful rentals of our other two properties, ref: IT 3162 and IT3495, we have decided to offer our own home this year for the holiday season.

About Deborah Cave

We are Brian and Deborah Cave and we moved to the Bagni di Lucca area in 2007 with our two boys, following the sale of our business in England. We decided to start a new life in Italy and live ‘La dolce Vita’. We had been welcomed with open arms by our fellow villagers and although we have since returned to the UK, we are still overwhelmed by the hospitality and friendliness of everyone that we have met.

We decided to buy two additional properties to renovate and rent as holiday lets which we have done so successfully for a number of years.

We want everyone who stays in one of our holiday homes to have a fantastic time, experience this wonderful area of Tuscany without paying a small fortune to do so and feel that they have received a good service with value for money.

Deborah Cave purchased this villa in 2003

Why Deborah Cave chose Bagni di Lucca

Having fallen in love with Bagni di Lucca, we found an idyllic area in the hamlet of Riolo - one of the many mountain villages that make up the commune of Bagni di Lucca - and decided to build our own holiday home.

The spot was absolutely perfect, set in 3 acres of unspoilt country side. We had a property sitting in its own wildlife park with the occasional visit from deer, beautiful birds of prey catching the thermals as they soar high above the house and the seclusion and peacefulness of being with one's own thoughts.

What makes this villa unique

Perfect for an away from it all holiday or an active holiday for walkers as the property is reached by car or on foot via its own no through track.

As the house is set on its own in 3 acres of countryside and woodland it is the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday. It's not too far from the town of Bagni di Lucca, only 10 minutes down the hill and a 5 minute walk from the main village of Riolo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely and quiet - very easy to relax here. Directions excellent, despite our reluctance to follow them! Good service by train to Lucca and beyond. But done be fooled by the station being in Bagni di Lucca as it is actually in Fornoli (approximately 2 miles outside Bagni di Lucca).

The Buffham family, High Wycombe Bucks - UK - July 2011

Fantastic villa which is very well equipped for a holiday rental property. The owners couldn’t do enough to help out. Don’t worry about the entrance slope too much - it’s easy after a couple of times. The DVDs were very helpful on a couple of cloudy rainy days. The only thing missing from home was our dogs!

The Kent family, Whiteparish Wiltshire - UK - July 2011

We had a fantastic holiday, the villa is stunning and on numerous times we saw hawks deer and eagles. We recommend that you go to Garnaiola they have live music and good cheap food. The owners were a delight to talk to and they helped in every way they could.
