Villa Description

Roam the Italian countryside from your base at villa Bottino. The property’s rustic stone-walled exteriors have charm to spare, and its two buildings give two or more families room to holiday together, while still enjoying their own private areas. Extensive outdoor spaces with views of the surrounding hills make it tempting to stay in, but the nearby beaches and towns of the Lucca area are worth a day trip or two.

There’s no excuse not to relax at Bottino. Plunge into the saltwater pool, catch up on reading from a lounge chair on the stone patio or take in the view of the olive groves around the property from the outdoor dining area. Try your luck at the bocce court or billiards table, then engage your senses in a cooking lesson in the large kitchen in “The Barn.” There’s even a piano in case musical inspiration strikes.

The property’s two historically designated buildings share details like stone exteriors, tile roofs and country-casual interiors. Each house has its own living room with plenty of deep armchairs and a fireplace or wood-burning stove—the perfect spot to nap after a day of swimming, cooking or hiking. A tidy peach and blue kitchen offers modern perks like a coffee maker and dishwasher.

Bottino has five bedrooms and can sleep up to ten guests. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, giving families or couples their own private space. Four of the bedrooms have double beds; the fifth has two twin beds. Details like upholstered headboards and soft-toned walls add comfort and cheer.

The villa is two miles from the village of San Martino in Freddana, which offers shops and restaurants. Don’t miss the beaches of Versilia, just 12 miles away. Drive to Pisa, which is 25 miles away, or Florence, which is about 45 miles away. If you’d rather walk, there are plenty of nearby hiking trails in the Apennines and Apuan Alps.

Additional Information:

  • SWIMMING POOLS - Swimming pools are not open all year. If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients’ use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.
  • HEATING - Heating is available at an additional charge of 50 Euro per day and must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.
  • WATER AND ELECTRICITY - Please note that most of the properties that we offer are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.
  • INTERNET CONNECTION - Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
  • LOW SLUNG CARS - VANS – MINIBUSES - Most of our houses are located in the countryside. Some of them can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways. We therefore advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us, at the time of booking, if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at one of our properties.
