Our large and child friendly house is suitable for groups of up to 8 people who want to stay in a beautiful and tranquil country hamlet just a few kilometres from Lucca and close to all Tuscany's major attractions. Gourmet kitchen and great view!
Beautiful converted barn house just 9 kilometres from Lucca in a hillside setting but with an easy access road. Close to mountains, beaches (28km), and services like supermarkets (3km), banks (3km) and post office (1km). Very quiet and peaceful country setting within walking distance to local village where there is a bar, small butcher and local shop. Cable TV, wireless internet, parking. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Sleeps 7+1. Large gourmet kitchen. Laundry with washer/dryer. Above ground round pool (4m diameter, 1.2m high), trampoline with safety nets. There are lots of books and board games for children and it is very well-located as a base from which to explore Tuscany, being just 20 km from Pisa, 70 km from Florence and 140 km from Siena and beaches just 30 mins away. Activities in the local area include trekking, mountain bike riding and sampling the fabulous local cuisine. The area is well-known for its quality olive-oil production.

The whole house.
We do not live on site but meet and greet the guests.
I love the food, people and lifestyle of the countryside around Lucca. It's a famous olive growing region and has a rich history and culture to explore. My favourite place is the local olive mill and there is an abundance of fantastic, inexpensive local produce available. The town of Lucca is a delight and you can spend whole days just wandering around or cycling along the city walls or take a drive up to Barga in Garfagnana.
There are some bus routes into Lucca but a car is the most convenient way of getting around. The train station is about 9 km and from there you can catch a train to just about anywhere in Tuscany or the Cinque Terre for day trips.

De Stone Barn in Lucca Hills is a very nicy and spacious house.
Well equiped and very cosy.
Very big kitchen with all the things you need.
Big garden with a pool and trampoline.
We were with 6 people and this house is very useful for a week of holiday with this amount of people.
Beautiful house in the hills of Lucca. The garden and the view are great. We loved the kitchen, we cooked three course meals every day. A nice place if you want to visit different cities in Tuscany (Lucca, Pisa, Florence) and go to the beach. I would recommend this house to groups of friends and especially families.
We had a very nice week in Marco's and Lee's spacious house with the whole family (7adults + 2kids). The garden leaves enough space for games, swimming in the pool, jumping around on the trampoline or having a barbecue. Every evening we prepared some delicious dinner in the huge kitchen and enjoyed the beautiful view from the terrace. The house is clean and nicely furnished. Games, puzzles and books are all around. Great place to relax with the family or friends. You need 35min to the next beach (Viareggio) and the tourist attractions Lucca and Pisa are not fare away either. I can imagine this place to be an awesome spot for bicyclists to depart from. The area is very rural, so expect narrow gravel streets and sharp turns when choosing the car for your trip! This place is definitely worth to stay at.
Very nice house! Every thing is a described and shown in the pictures.
Booking and Payment went smooth.
Very helpful and nice people
The house, the garden and the location of the house are beautiful. We were 7 and everyone has more than enough splace…a really comfortable house. Marco is very hospitable and he was always available, if we had any questions. A great place for holiday with family…we stayed there for 2 weeks and it was a wonderful time. THANK YOU Marco and Lee.
We had a great week at Lee & Paolo! The house was beautiful, super fresh and clean in a fantastic setting! Can highly Recommend them as hosts! Many thanks for a wonderful holiday.
This place is just fantastic! A spacious house with a large garden area and beautiful surroundings. Staying in the house felt like experiencing the real Tuscany. Marco was an excellent host and was available if we had any questions. He also gave us cooking lessons which are highly recommendable! It is a bit out of town, so you will need a car.
we can really reccommend this location. It was a very warm and gentle welcome, Lee was always reachable and available for everything, speaks fluently english and italian.
The house is very well equiped and very clean. We have never stayed in a house nices than this, fantastic kitchen with all what you need, good working WLAN. The pool is simple and not very big, but clean and absolute sufficient.
The location is also fantastic, the view is magnificant, it is very quite but you find the next shops only 2 minutes away and Lucca is only 10 minutes by car... that's the only negative point, if it is negativ: you really need a car to stay here comfortable, but as we had one, there is no reason why we will not come back!
Thanks Lee for a fantastic vacation!
Just a lovely place to stay, nice surrounding, nice house and very kind owners. The house is very comfortable to be in and close to very beautyful places in Toscana. We stayed there for 2 weeks, and we could have been there for another 2 weeks.
We spent a wonderful 5 days/nights in this home. The house was very clean, well equipped and we loved the decor. It is situated approx. 10 min. outside of Luca and the view is fantastic. We especially enjoyed sitting outside on the covered terrace in the evening after a busy day of sightseeing. The surrounding could not be more peaceful. We can highly recommend.
