A fantastic and romantic stone chalet in the heart of Tuscany. On the ground floor you'll find an open living room & kitchen (tv & wifi included). The bedroom (with Jacuzzi) and bathroom are on the top floor. Outside a fully equipped patio (table, chairs & BBQ) are for your use, where you can enjoy the peaceful and beautiful landscape of the surrounding hills near Lucca. Just a 10 min walk will take you to Benabbio - where you'll find restaurants and local shops.

The space
The Chalet is surrounded by an oak forest near Benabbio, just a few km from Bagni di Lucca, famous for its thermal waters and the old Casino, the first in Europe.
Benabbio, unlike other villages in the region, is hidden among its forests which makes it a private and peaceful place, ideal for a holiday or for a relaxing break. Despite this, the chalet is just a 10 min walk away from two restaurants and local shops (newsagent and groceries). Tranquility and the secluded location offer countless leisure ideas such as walks in the woods of chestnut and oak trees. You can also easily visit the old Romanesque church, the Art Museum and the remains of the castle which have recently been the subject of archaeological excavations.
Additionally, given the proximity, you can arrange day tours in the famous cities in Tuscany (Florence, Siena, Lucca and Pisa).
Otherwise, you can just relax at the chalet and enjoy the scenery and the amenities offfered (patio, BBq, tv, wifi).

Guest access
The chalet has been renovated maintaining the original characteristics and using typical Tuscan style and materials and is furbished with antique and traditional furniture.
The chalet has a large double bedroom with Jacuzzi and a bathroom with a shower. If needed, 2 single beds are available instead of the double. On the ground floor you'll find a living room with kitchenette, sofa and TV.
The patio is provided with table and chairs for outside eating.
You'll also find everything for babies (cot, highchair etc.) free of charge.

Other things to note
the chalet is 10 min walking from the village but it can be reached by car via a dirt road through the forest. If you don't feel confortable to driving "off road" in your car, I can lend you my 4x4 car so you can reach the chalet with no difficulties.
