About the villa
In a setting that will match you mood for mood, La Casa della Chiesa is cushioned in rural tranquillity, less than 20km from lively Viareggio and its sandy beaches; even closer to historic Camaiore and the elegant piazzas of Lucca; and within easy day-trip distance of both Pisa and Florence. And the villa itself offers plenty of choice, and space, for guests to entertain themselves at home, from its well-stocked book shelves, table games, TV and WiFi, to outdoor facilities including croquet, table tennis, and a sizeable swimming pool sunk into sunny lawns. Imbued with the easy ambiance of visiting friends, this happy house has beamed ceilings, brick tiled floors, big open fires, and bright rugs and fabrics. Five simply styled bedrooms include a ground floor single, an air-conditioned attic twin, and a canopied four-poster. The country style kitchen has modern appliances and a door to the furnished veranda. And convivial social space includes a traditional dining hall, a library/TV room replete with eclectic artworks, and a split-level living room, furnished with rustic informality and overlooked by a mezzanine study. Shops and restaurants in San Martino in Freddana less than 6km away.

Although they are only 17km apart, Pisa and Lucca instantly feel like different worlds. The former is a lively student city on the River Arno, and has one of the world’s most recognizable monuments: the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Understated Lucca is compact and genteel, ideal for a Tuscany villa nearby, with handsome piazzas that frame churches in the Luccan-Romanesque style. Those on a Lunigiana holiday occupy the Apennine foothills in far north-western Tuscany. It is rolling, blissfully empty terrain whose few inhabitants have cultural links with neighbouring Liguria.
