The Olives' Terrace a apartment forming part of an ancient Villa dating 1500 in the charming village of Benabbio set amid olive groves and chestnut woods of the Val di Lima, a few km from Bagni di Lucca, which is renowned for its thermal waters and the old Casino, the first in Europe.
Benabbio, unlike other villages in the region, is hidden among the woods in a tranquil spot making it ideal for a holiday or a relaxing break. Despite this, a few minutes walk are only two restaurants, a newsagent / stationery and food with local products. The beautiful view from the terrace offers countless ideas for recreation such as walking in the woods of chestnut and olive groves, visits to the ancient Romanesque church, the Museum of Art or the ruins of the castle of Lupo Lupari, recently the subject of archaeological excavations.
You can relax in the Villa's garden between
bowers of vines and olive trees and take in the breath-taking mountain views. In addition, given the proximity to Tuscan cultural cities, it is possible to take day trips to Florence, Siena, Lucca and Pisa.
Recently restored, using materials and furnishings typical of the Tuscan style with antique furniture and objects characteristic of the traditional culture, the apartment is composed of a large double bedroom (it' possible have two twinbed instead of a double bed like in the pitcure) with bathroom with a shower, a living room with kitchenette and sofa bed for two people and a relax room with tv, dvd player, and fireplace.
