From the house, you can stroll down to the the small village of Diecimo with its 11th Century picturesque church, and there is a train station in the town around 1 km away. Lucca is just 15 - 20 minutes away from here by car.
The beautiful house is divided into three apartments, one of which is sometimes used by the owner. It is situated in a quiet location on a peaceful village road about 800 metres from the centre of Diecimo. The nearest restaurant is approximately 600 metres away from the house. Both the house and the garden are quaint and well maintained throughout and there is plenty of outdoor space. There are more tables and chairs outside than there are guests so you can choose which are suits you best. There is a large barbeque grill, olive trees, and a herb garden outside also. There is a 10 x 6 metres swimming pool (150 cm deep) and sun loungers for shared use but since there are only 2 apartments for rent this is never crowded. The mountain view from outside is amazing.

- The apartment is 75 m², and it's hard to describe it adequately. It is situated on three levels with an entrance on the ground floor. It is like a room with two lofts. You enter into the ground floor, where you will find a living room and a separate kitchen with four burner stove, fridge and mini-oven and satellite television. From the living room there is a narrow and steep spiral staircase to the first floor where there is a sofa bed for one person, a bathroom with a gorgeous bath and toilet and access to a covered terrace (approx. 2 x 4 metres). Another spiral staircase takes you to the second floor where there is a double bed and access to a terrace of exactly the same type as on the first floor. There are no doors separating the rooms, but the feeling is still that of completely separate compartments. The apartment has a washing machine.
- The apartment is 60 m² and is located on a raised ground floor (13 steps up).

we would like to thank you for the progress of our holiday - from its order, after answering questions until its conclusion. We are positively surprised about your approach.
Our critism will be constructive: the place was amazing with its garden, swimming pool and old stone-house BUT the photos you have on your webside can not match the this reality. They are not very good- we suggest to make more detailed photos of the garden with the church in backround and more photos of the backyard with the bushes & flowers. Maybe it sounds "silly", but the first view of the potentional guests is very important.
Anyway, the kitchen equipment was great- we found everything we needed.
