Condo/Apartment
The Olives' Terrace a apartment forming part of an ancient Villa dating 1500 in the charming village of Benabbio set amid olive groves and chestnut woods of the Val di Lima, a few km from Bagni di Lucca, which is renowned for its thermal waters and the old Casino, the first in Europe. Benabbio, unlike other villages in the region, is hidden among the woods in a tranquil spot making it ideal for a holiday or a relaxing break. Despite this, a few minutes walk are only two restaurants, a newsagent / stationery and food with local products. The beautiful view from the terrace offers countless ideas for recreation such as walking in the woods of chestnut and olive groves, visits to the ancient Romanesque church, the Museum of Art or the ruins of the castle of Lupo Lupari, recently the subject ...The Olives' Terrace a apartment forming part of an ancient Villa dating 1500 in the charming village of Benabbio set amid olive groves and chestnut woods of the Val di Lima, a few km from Bagni di Lucca, which is renowned for its thermal waters and the old Casino, the first in Europe.

The beautiful view from the terrace offers countless ideas for recreation such as walking in the woods of chestnut and olive groves, visits to the ancient Romanesque church, the Museum of Art or the ruins of the castle of Lupo Lupari, recently the subject of archaeological excavations. You can relax in the Villa's garden between bowers of vines and olive trees and take in the breath-taking mountain views. In addition, given the proximity to Tuscan cultural cities, it is possible to take day trips to Florence, Siena, Lucca and Pisa. The apartment: Recently restored, using materials and furnishings typical of the Tuscan style with antique furniture and objects characteristic of the traditional culture, the apartment is composed of a large double bedroom with bathroom with a shower ( it' possible to have two twinbeds instead of the doublebed), a living room with kitchenette and sofa bed for two people. In the garden you can find a beach umbrella and sun beds, table and chairs for al fresco dining whilst enjoying panoramic views. There is private covered parking.More
