Description

A delightful property situated on a vast oil producing estate which originally dates back to the 18th century. La Limonaia stands in a magical setting surrounded by vineyards and orchards yet only a short walk (700 metres) from the nearest village, 10 Km from Lucca, under 1 hour from Pisa airport and a 30 minute drive from the coast. This charming property is tatsetfully furnished in pretty, tuscan pastel colours with teracotta tiled floors and wooden beamed ceilings throughout. The private fenced pool is ideal for families with small children and can be heated upon request. Bedrooms benefit from air-conditioning. Wi-fi and a children's play area. Cook service & bike hire available

The approach to La Limonia is via a private drive which leads to two restored farmhouses known as La Limonaia Grande (5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms) and La Limonaia Piccola (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) . Originally used for milling flour and making wine, the two properties face each other across a beautiful fruit orchard.

La Limonaia has been recently restored to the highest standards and offers a delightful, rustic setting with open fireplaces, pretty terraces for dining 'al fresco' and a large swimming pool, shared by the two properties. Smaller groups may rent La Limonaia Grande only, (sleeps up to 10 guests), or for larger groups both properties may be rented together to sleep 16 .

The owners have tried to make the villa as child friendly as possible with cots, high chairs, loads of toys, gated stairs if needed, locking gates to pool, and metal grids over fountains. There is an English speaking manager and a housekeeper living in the gate house at the main entrance to the estate who are on hand to assist you during your stay and there is intercom access from La Limonaia direct to the estate manager. The estate's delicious olive oil, and produce (according to season) are available to purchase and wine / oil tastings can be arranged. Bikes available for hire.
