Beautiful Eight-bedroom Manor House in Medieval Village with Amazing Views
This beautiful manor house located in one of the prettiest villages in this part of the Lucca province would be a perfect place for a B&B or similar.
There are actually three apartments; one small which is not connected inside to the rest of the house, and two appartments which are connected by stairs. The owner of the B&B could live in the smaller one. It has been restored to the Seventy’s standard, but is perfectly habitable.
In one of the appartments,is where the legend tells a bishop slept in ancient times. Therefor one bedroom is called “The Bishop’s room”. This is the part of the house with affrescos on the ceilings and walls.
Here is also a large country kitchen with the original stone sink and cooker. It is possible to actually imagine the women cooking great dinners with homemade pasta and juicy steaks!
Adiacent to the kitchen is a living with original fireplace and bread oven.
This part takes out to the enclosed garden through a terrace with large stairs attached to it.
The bedrooms and the reception hall are separeted from the rest by a hallway. From the reception hall large French doors take out onto the terrace with amazing views over The Fegana Valley.
The Bishops room is to the left and there is a smaller reception room next to it. The other two bedrooms featuring affrescos, are on the opposite side of the reception hall.
The third appartment is above the bedrooms and the reception room of the “Bishop’s appartment”. There are three bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom.
The garden is on two levels and a separate part adiacent to the large cantinas.
There is central heating but a new boiler is required. The roof was restored about 10 years ago.
Another good thing is that there is a small trattoria run by a local girl only about 50 metres from the house! But the village has another restaurant only a kilometre away, and there’s a grocery shop too in the middle of the village. It distances aproximately 35 kilometres from Lucca, one hour’s drive from Pisa and one and a half from Florence.
