LA MACINA FARMHOUSE AND OLIVE OIL ESTATE is located on the hills of Lucca in the village of CICIANA among among a 5 ha private estate where EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL is produced by the owners. The rental property is made up of 3 stone houses which are all located around the pool and that are rented entirely to only 1 party per time, so privacy is never compromised.
This is an area of Tuscany that opens up endless exploring possibilities: medieval hilltop towns, some of Europe's most renowned vineyards and some of its most alluring sights and cities. Pisa, Florence and Siena are all under an hour away and within 10 to 15 minutes you can be in Lucca city centre inside the walls. A week of serious exploring combined with easy relaxation strikes an excellent balance. La Macina Farmhouse invites outdoor living: you are fabulously well set up with a poolside terrace for drinks and unforgettable evenings with your friends while enjoying the view of the town at your feet, or for creating a wonderful atmosphere in the evenings, sunset on cue and maybe some bruschetta and a glass of Chianti in hand. By the side of the main house there's a fabulous shady area with big reclining wooden chairs and a fully equipped kitchen and BBQ. Around the front it's set up for al fresco dining with table and chairs that call for long dinners and plenty of chatter deep into the balmy evenings. The INFINITY POOL with hydromassage Jacuzzi area (pool size it is 12 metres x 6.5 metres) is magnificent and has an amazing deck with 8 sunbeds and a view over the valley. Next to the pool there is a bathroom. The pool system uses no chlorine but salt, so the water is healthy and perfect for children or those who are allergic. Quality beach towels are provided for each guest.
The interiors are very well equipped and full of charm and despite its farmhouse appeal it comes with the right appliances and facilities to make any cook at home. There are dishwashers, good quality espresso machines, kettles, toasters, overns and microwaves. Each of the three houses has a kitchen and dining room for cosy meals and double doors open conveniently onto the front terrace and pergola area where guests can enjoy a glass of wine or dine watching the sun go down and each of the three houses has a living room for private relaxation.
