La Sambuca, with its unique location, is characterized by an peace and tranquility that allows you to listen to the sounds of nature. The entire site can be rented exclusively on request. Stables:A newly and very sympathetically converted detached farm building with 3 bedrooms (2 double, and 1 twin), and 2 pristine shower rooms.The house has been carefully restored, and is decorated in a rustic style, boasting an open fire, and beamed ceilings throughout. The kitchen is well equipped with oven, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher & washing machine.There is a wide living room/dining room, with some comfortable seating, and satellite TV/stereo/DVD and WIFI .Outside is a large private terrace overlooking the mountains, BBQ, and shared extensive grounds, which include a swimming pool (12M x 6M). A little about location: La Sambuca - Situated 1 hour North of the medieval city of Lucca, and 25 minutes North of the market town of Castelnuovo, Il Sambuco is a collection of 3 houses nestling in the midst of hills, and situated approximately 1km from the road, just North of the tiny village of Contra.The grounds are extensive, and parts of the gardens are used for growing local produce, which guests are welcome to use. Whilst Nicciano has some facilities, the local village of Piazza Al Serchio with its bars, restaurants, supermarket, Tuesday morning market, and Train Station is less than a 5-minute drive away and bread is delivered each morning. The views from this extremely peaceful site are magnificent - the houses overlook the green and fertile Serchio valley, with views of the Apuane and Appenine Alps. This really is the perfect location - an ideal place to unwind deep in the countryside, yet close enough to all local amenities, and a convenient base for exploring by car or train. TOURIST TAX - Do note that there is a local stay tax applicable at €1 per person per night, up to a maximum of 5 nights. This does not apply to children under 14.More

We enjoyed our holiday at Sambuca. Beautiful quiet area. Our hostess Oriana is very friendly and brought us fresh vegetables from her garden. The children loved the big swimming pool. We visited Lucca and Pisa.
