Serendipita is situated just outside Montecarlo, an unspoiled hilltop village about 10 km away from Lucca. Situated in a beautiful Tuscan landscape surrounded by olive trees and vineyards it is within walking distance of Montecarlo and San Salvatore, ( with its local train station ) or 2 minutes by car. Pescia, Altopascio, and Montecatini are nearby.
The house sleeps 9 plus baby cots. 2 additional beds are available upon request.
One bedroom and one bathroom are on the ground floor and offer easy access for people with wheelchair or with walking difficulties. There is level access (no steps) from the outside, to all the ground floor rooms, thus including this bedroom.
3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are on the first and second floor.
Children are a priority. The stairs are protected with gates, children books and many games are available for them both inside and outside in the pool area. Other items available are cots, highchairs and car seats.
Last but not least, the house has a fantastic atelier (studio). There you can develop your artistic preferences be it painting, due to the breathtaking views or working with clay or other materials. This also represents an unique opportunity for groups interested in spending creative holidays, and for teachers who would like to organize art lessons combined with a delightful holiday.
Moreover, two important works of art are present in the property. In the grounds beyond the swimming pool is a Modern Dog, carved in Carrara marble by Delfina Nargang, wife of the late Nathaniel Kaz, the well known American sculptor who worked in Pietrasanta and New York.
The other work is the Montecarlo Mural taking up one wall of the living room, by Meg Harris-Williams who is well known in England as an author and artist. (See also Meg@artlit.info) A key is available to explain the sources and allusions depicted in this mural, including the Bible, Dante, Milton, Blake, Giorgoni, Piero della Francesca etc etc.
Outside, in summer, you can have lunch and dinner in the shade of a large roofed airy outbuilding, and enjoy a BBQ or a pizza made in a traditional oven. The vast garden also offers many places for anybody to relax, read a book or have a walk in the shadow of the trees.
On request we can organize a babysitter, a cook, excursions in the near surroundings or in the Chianti area, a day at the beach in Forte dei Marmi, concert tickets, reservation of restaurants, hairdressers, SPA and many other services to make your holidays unique.
