- About The Experience
Set in a quiet position surrounded by the Tuscany countryside, this stone farmhouse is an absolute delight. You and your friends and family can explore the extensive grounds of this self-catering accommodation in Italy and go swimming, have a barbecue, or simply take a stroll but also know there are horseback riding facilities, tennis courts, and a golf course nearby. Speaking of nearby, the lovely town of Lucca is just 20 minutes away from this farmhouse rental.
- Location Description
The small town of Orentano is located a kilometer and a half from the property. It is best known and appreciated for its many shows and festivals held throughout the year. Children will love the annual carnival, which is celebrated starting the week before lent and ending the night of Ash Wednesday. The many events include a parade of floats, drawing and painting competitions, and people dressed in lively costumes to inspire the imaginations of all. In July there is a pizza and beer festival featuring traditional Tuscan dishes, and in August comes the cake festival, celebrated with the creation and display of one elaborate, gargantuan cake! You can always find a restaurant, a pizzeria, and various small shops in town. The surrounding area also produces two famous DOC wines: Montecarlo and Chianti. The nearby medieval hamlet of Altopascio is also well worth a visit, as it has a long and interesting history dating back to the 12th century. Altopascio also offers a Thursday market, a bakery, supermarket, and an internet point. But if you have a taste for more urban delights, this Tuscany apartment also has easy access to the Autostrada, so you'll have no problem taking day trips to various Tuscany highlights, including Lucca, Pisa, and Florence.
