This lovely property is located in the hills between Lucca and the Versilian coast, only a 20 minute drive from both these destinations. Close to both the Apennines and the Apuan Alps, this setting is also excellent for hikers and people who like to walk.
The two buildings forming Bottino used to be a farmhouse and a barn of a very large property belonging to one of the richest silk merchants of Lucca. From the windows of Bottino, you can admire a medieval hunting lodge and a little grey stone church dating back to the year 1000. The whole property is under the supervision of the Italian Historical Buildings. Today, as in past centuries, the terraced grounds surrounding the houses are covered with olive groves.
The present owners have recently completely restored Bottino, carefully maintaining all the original materials like antique terracotta floor tiles and beamed ceilings. At the same time, both houses offer all modern facilities and comforts such as a well equipped kitchen and an en-suite bathroom for every bedroom. The garden includes a lovely wood-oven area, which is nicely furnished for outdoor meals.
