Why Joanna Nobile chose Bagni di Lucca
We spent months looking for our perfect home a small house for the family and then we found Il Fienile at La Stalla di Guzzano and fell in love. A two storey stone farmhouse dating back over 250 years, with over 38 acres of land. It was a complete wreck & came complete with abandoned cow stalls that even had the names of the cows still above the milking stations! We loved the spectacular mountain views, dotted with quaint Tuscan hill villages, the peaceful location & the pretty town of Bagni di Lucca. Many of the original features remained from its cotto ceilings, stone floors, chestnut beams, stone door frames and old farm machinery. We set about lovingly restoring it into a luxury home and after two years, the house was finally renovated, furniture purchased, pool finished, our 400 olive trees, saffron and truffle groves planted, as well as the many garden areas around the house where you will find fruits, herbs and nut trees. We all now speak fluent Italian and feel very privileged to own our own corner of Tuscany our little piece of paradise!
What makes this farmhouse unique
Apart from the stunning natural beauty and tranquility of the area, staying here will give you a real Italian experience. This is not an area of mass tourism. Most of our neighbours in the village dont speak much English, yet it doesnt stop them giving you a friendly wave and shouting Ciao as you walk by. You will are see them busy throughout the year, tending their vegetable gardens, collecting their fruits, making wine and olive oil, picking mushrooms, hunting wild boar and stacking wood in their wood piles ready for the winter. Everything here revolves around the family and more often around food! There are so many great local restaurants, food festivals, pizzatas and cafes to try with authentic and reasonably-priced food. It is difficult to decide which one to go to sometimes! On the other hand, barbecuing or making pizza's in the pizza oven lazily on the terraces with a few beers or a bottle of wine, popping in for a dip in the pool and soaking up the lovely views, isn't a bad option either!
