Welcome to the lovely Villa Checco, made of stones locally gathered over 150 years ago. The villa is recently renewed maintaining the original Tuscanian style, with terraced gardens and a swimming pool among the olive trees. Amenities and cultural spots at hand. Perfect holiday for your family and friends! The Medieval jewel city of Lucca is at sight 3 miles away, worldwide known Pisa is at 10 miles, while beaches are reachable in 20 miles. Florence is within 50 miles. We organise excursions, Lucca's guided tours and we teach how to make a real pizza in a real wood oven. It is a self catering house, but you can ask for a cooking lesson and you will be able to eat local dishes on the terrace! The house used to be the baker house for the small village San Lorenzo, the wood oven is the origin...Welcome to the lovely Villa Checco, made of stones locally gathered over 150 years ago.
