The apartment is located near the village of Marlia ( 2.5 km.) where you can find the essential shops, banks, post office, drug store etc. The estate is family owned and is rented directly no agencies. Fienile is not an independent home but guests share the use of the gardens, a very attractive 12x7 m swimming pool with marvellous views of the countryside and garden furniture.

About the neighbourhood
Lucca is one of the few towns of the world that keeps intact the wall fence around the town, beautiful churches (people from Lucca says more than one hundred), beautiful mansions, beautiful shops and what else.....just wandering around those very narrow medioval streets and you will find small shops, small restaurants. Lucca area still belong to Lucca's inhabitant, you don't fill like a tourist. Don't forget Puccini! During the summer you can have the opportunity to go to the Opera in Torre del Lago. And what about the modern music? In July in Lucca there is the Summer Festival with the most famous singers coming from all over the world.
