Overview
Condo/Apartment -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Lucca, Province of Lucca, Tuscany
Our small organic farm sits on a hill along Lucca’s beautiful northern countryside in the hamlet of Aquilea, with stunning views over the Valdottavo valley, the high peaks of the Apennines, and the National park in the distance. We produce our own olive oil, bake our own bread, make jams from our own fruit trees, prepare home-made yoghurt and classic Italian sauce from our own tomatoes, and grow a variety of vegetables.

Our solar powered and beautifully restored farmhouse has two comfortable, fully furnished apartments that will feel like home the moment you step inside! Each has its own entry on a lovely terrace where you can relax and enjoy outdoor dining, including pizza from a brick oven. At our above ground swimming pool, guests can enjoy sunbathing with an incredible view.

My husband & I had an incredible stay at Abbacca-la & would highly recommend it. By the time we left, I felt as if I had gained a new friend, Lella. There are many moments that were special but my biggest & unexpected surprise was the pasta cooking class. How I dreamed that one day I would be able to...

About the neighbourhood
Pisa and Florence as well as Volterra or other famous medieval towns or Cinque Terre are very easily reachable from our farmhouse for daily trips.
Our area is famous for the special taste of our olive oil (we produce it) and for the red wine and there are several restaurants where you can taste
the real typical Tuscan cooking, familial little restaurants as well assmarts ones.
Further if you prefer to stay at home in the night, after travelling all around Tuscany I can cook for you or we could prepare together an Italian
meal because I can give you cooking lessons .
No problem for safe parking as our property is closed by a fence and we have an authomatic gate. Fence and gate actually are for our dogs as the area is very safe.
