Well restored character farmhouses all let together, and set in the hills of the totally unspoilt, green & mountainous region of Northern Tuscany. 

The views from the houses and the pool are beautiful, & the extensive grounds are the perfect place to relax. Ideal for a large group wishing to holiday together but also requiring privacy from each other. All properties included in price.

 Each property has a private outside eating space/terrace/BBQ & you may pick produce from the grounds, for your al fresco meals!

There are two houses, one detached with 3 bedrooms, and one split into 2 apartments with 2 bedrooms each.


The Stables - detached house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, large open plan living/kitchen diner leading to large private terrace overlooking gardens and pool. Sleeps 6 plus 2.

Formicola - apartment with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, living/diner and kitchen and large terrace overlooking the mountains. Sleeps 4 plus 2.

Each property is full of character and there are beamed ceilings, chestnut windows, traditional flooring, yet they are well equipped with modern kitchens and pristine shower rooms.

Each has oven, hob, washing machine, fridge, TV, DVD and WIFI. The Stables has a dishwasher and fridge/freezer 

There is a further basement area closer to the pool than the other properties which has an additional kitchen for further food storage (with fridge and freezer) and a further shower room which can be used when coming in from pool if you dont wish to use that in your own apartments. 


Enormous private site, with no less than 4 eating terraces, 4 large BBQ's for al fresco dining, allotment with extensive 'pick your own' produce, large private pool with plenty of sunbeds and a shaded gazebo area too... Plenty of room to be together and separate too!

This is a real away from it all retreat, yet only 5 min. by car to a large village with supermarkets, bars, restaurants & train station serving Lucca, Barga, Pisa, Florence & The Cinque Terre AND only 500M from a fantastic restaurant - an easy and relaxing walk away!

The bread man visits daily too.

We can arrange for a wonderful cook to come and prepare the odd meal for you all at very reasonable prices - always a great evening...

A real treat!

A little about the area

La Sambuca - Situated 1 hour North of the medieval city of Lucca, and 25 minutes North of the market town of Castelnuovo, Il Sambuco is a collection of 3 houses nestling in the midst of hills, and situated approximately 1km from the road, just North of the tiny village of Contra.
The grounds are extensive, and parts of the gardens are used for growing local produce, which the owner will freely provide on request . 
Whilst Nicciano has some facilities, the local village of Piazza Al Serchio with its bars, restaurants, supermarket, Tuesday morning market, and Train Station is less than a 5-minute drive away and bread is delivered each morning. 
The views from this extremely peaceful site are magnificent - the houses overlook the green and fertile Serchio valley, with views of the Apuane and Appenine Alps.
This really is the perfect location - an ideal place to unwind deep in the countryside, yet close enough to all local amenities, and a convenient base for exploring by car or train.

In high season there is a wonderful  restaurant providing home cooked meals using local produce, just a 10 min walk. Only open weekends outside of July and August.
