Welcome to La Lucertola - a truly special place. Benvenuti!
This is a beautiful and perfectly positioned location for your holiday: immersed in unspoilt nature and yet close to the famous Tuscan art cities of Pisa, Lucca, Florence and other nearby, lesser known gems. The iconic Leaning Tower or Pisa is clearly visible from the houses, the balconies, the sun terrace and swimming pool.
La Lucertola is both near to the coast and near to the hills and mountains, yet remains convenient for access to the road, rail and air networks. Here, you can hear birdsong, enjoy the scent of the flowers and herbs and can muse and let your mind wander and relax over the fabulous views both near and far.
We offer the choice of two farmhouses in Tuscany both of which can accommodate up to 7 guests.
These properties can be rented separately or together sharing a salt water, chlorine-free swimming pool in its own secure and dedicated stunning area.
The farmhouses are set in an ancient olive grove on the southern slopes of Monti Pisani – an environmentally protected area of outstanding natural beauty.
Both houses offer spectacular panoramic views over olive grove, Pisa, The Leaning Tower and the Mediterranean Sea.
We look forward to welcoming you to this special place.
Nestled in its own private olive grove, La Lucertola is a setting from heaven. Spectacular views over forest, field, The Leaning Tower of Pisa and The Mediterranean Sea on the horizon make this a truly enchanting location. Flowers, herbs, fireflies and jasmine blossom abound. The peace is punctuated only by birdsong.
The ample area around the house is a fun space in which to lounge, explore, cook and play. The salt water, chlorine-free swimming pool enjoys views to infinity and is situated in its own secure and dedicated area. The beaches are close by, less than 30 minutes away. Pisa and Lucca, both 20 minutes away and Florence just an hour - stay and play or go and explore - it's all on your door.
Fabulous accommodation: The accommodation offers two beautiful, spacious and well-equipped, environmentally sensitive farmhouses, each of which can accommodate up to seven people.
The houses enjoy the use of a shared, salt water, chlorine free swimming pool in its own secure and dedicated area. The farmhouses are set on the south facing slopes of the Monti Pisani, an environmentally protected area of outstanding natural beauty, in the midst of terraced olive grove, fruit trees, birds and wild flowers.
The houses are set on a hill and are reached by a private road up above the charming hamlet of Pugnano and enjoy spectacular views over forest, field, Pisa, The Leaning Tower and The Mediterranean Sea beyond. The ever changing countryside offers the holiday maker a year round choice for travel.
Feel good about this choice of holiday: The farmhouses are a genuinely environmentally sensitive choice. Solar panels contribute to the electricity supply. The water is supplied from a permanent spring from a cave above the houses - one washes in it, bathes in it and swims in it – wonderful! With many other green initiatives this is a destination to feel good about.
Great location: The farmhouses are in a superb position: about 20 minutes by road from both Pisa and Lucca, 30 minutes from the coast, an hour from Florence and lesser known gems making exploration fun and worth while. The combination of hills, sea and proximity to places of cultural interest make this a holiday location to suit and inspire all moods and fancies at all times of year.
Activities: There is plenty to do here for all ages and to fit all moods and tastes! Activities such as cookery courses, 'Restaurant at Home' catering, canoeing, rafting, cycling, walking, running, paragliding and horse-riding can be arranged either prior to arrival or while you are here.
