I Gelsomini is a lovely farmhouse, conveniently situated only 5 kms from the centre
of Lucca. The property is surrounded by 3 hectares of land with olive groves
and woods. The house has been totally restored by the owners, both Italian architects,
who used it until recently as their main home. They have successfully preserved
the character of the old farmhouse with its antique cotto floors and beamed
ceilings, and have furnished it very tastefully to a high standard. A covered
patio connects the huge sitting room (100 sq. meters) that has been made out
of the original hayloft, whose structure has been maintained yet
modernized with parquet floor, a fireplace and large windows overlooking
the pool. The
sitting room, with wooden floor and fireplace, also opens to the south-facing
garden, where a swimming pool will be installed for the 2001 season. the centre
of Lucca. As the property is less than 4 kms from the nearest motorway exit,
it is a perfect base for exploring Tuscany, with Florence less than 50 minutes
away, and Pisa and the beaches less than 20 minutes.
