is a lovely stone-built farmhouse located in a very secluded and tranquil
position in the hills of Lucca. The area, Forci, is one of the most
beautiful in all the Luccan countryside. Despite its quiet location,
the property is also just 15 minutes by car from the center of Lucca.
From the house and the garden, surrounded by olive groves and fruit
trees, there are wonderful views over the countryside, from the Apuan
Alps down to the plain of Lucca. The house has been recently restored
and very tastefully furnished by a British interior decorator for
the use of his family and is now available for rent when they are
not in residence. He has used authentic Tuscan materials, such as
antique cotto floors and beamed ceilings, and furnished it in a very
attractive rustic, yet elegant style. Both to the front and back of
the house there are outside eating areas with a built-in barbecue.
The house has been featured in a 14-page article in the October 1996
edition of the magazine "The World of Interiors." The 1.5
kilometers road, down a forest track leading to the house, is not
suitable for cars with low suspensions or for nervous drivers.
