The wonderful Macennere property is a stone farmhouse located in a very secluded and tranquil position on the hills of Lucca. This area – known as Forci - is one of the most beautiful in the Luccan countryside. The dramatic mile-long road that leads to the house takes you through a forest road and is not suitable for cars with low suspensions or for nervous drivers. Despite its quiet location, the property is also just 15 minutes by car from the center of Lucca. From the house and the garden - surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees - there are wonderful views over the countryside that extend from the Apuan Alps down to the plain of Lucca.

The house has been recently restored and very tastefully furnished by a British interior decorator for the use of his family and is now available for rent when they are not in residence. He has used authentic Tuscan elements, such as antique cotto floors and beamed ceilings, and furnished it in a very attractive rustic, yet elegant style. There are outdoor eating areas at both the front and back of the house [there is also a built-in barbecue]. The house has been featured in a 14-page article in the October 1996 issue of the magazine ‘The World of Interiors’ and in a 5-page review in one April 2005 issue of "The Times" magazine.
