Info and Description: Appartamenti in Agriturismo near Lucca in Toscana, Aquilea
Info and Description
Our small organic farm sits on a hill along Lucca's beautiful northern countryside in the hamlet of Aquilea, with stunning views over the Valdottavo valley, the high peaks of the Appenines and the national park in the distance.
It's the ideal place to relax and to go for lovely walks both on foot and by bike.
It's therefore ideal for...
We produce our own olive oil and chestnut flour, bake our own bread, make jams from our own fruit trees and classic Italian sauce from our own tomatoes, and grow a variety of vegetables.
Our solar powered (well, some electric!) farmhouse has two comfortable, fully furnished apartments that will feel like home the moment you step inside! Each has its own entry on a lovely terrace where you can relax and enjoy outdoor dining, including pizza from a brick oven.
At our above ground swimming pool, guests can enjoy sunbathing with an incredible view.
Our love and respect for the environment can be seen in our organic farm with free range animals, olive groves, vegetable garden and fruit trees, as well as our beautifully restored farmhouse and apartments.
We use solar panels for hot water and to help with the wood boiler heating system.
We chose an above ground, moveable swimming pool that has less environmental impact, which is also heated by solar panels.
The poolside gazebo has a photovoltaic roof.
If you like, we can pick you up at the train station in Lucca, bring you to the farmhouse to get settled, then loan you a car for exploring the Tuscan countryside.
