Podere Antonio

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Gallicano, Province of Lucca, Tuscany
This restored 2 bedroom character cottage with private pool, is situated in the Tuscan countryside, less than a 1 hour drive from Lucca.
Blessed with flat land in the form of mature gardens complete with olive trees, and surrounded by 7.5 hectares of farmland, this is a real oasis of peace, perfect for romantic stays.
Also ideal for young families, since the garden is fully enclosed...
It is difficult to tear onself away from the two covered terraces, one of which has a fully functioning wood burning bread/pizza oven and BBQ, beautiful grounds, good sized pool and perfect stunning country/mountain views.
The owner who lives nearby fully respects the privacy of guests but will bring you home made produce and home grown produce too which is a real treat!
This is a popular choice for returning guests...
