The lovely Bottino property is located in the hills between Lucca and the Versilian coast, only a 20-minute drive from town and 40 minutes from the beaches. Close to both the Apennines and the Apuan Alps, this setting is also excellent for hikers and people who like to explore on foot. The two buildings forming Bottino used to be the farmhouse and 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 entire property is under the supervision of the Italian Historical Buildings commission. Today, as in past centuries, the terraced grounds surrounding the houses are covered with olive groves. The present owners recently restored Bottino in a very attractive country style, carefully maintaining all the original features like antique terracotta floor tiles and beamed ceilings. At the same time both houses offer all modern comforts, such as a well equipped kitchen and an en-suite bathroom in every bedroom. The garden includes a lovely wood-oven area, which is nicely furnished for outdoor meals. A beautiful swimming pool has been placed in front of the barn in a panoramic position.
