Overview

"Eco-friendly" Farmhouse
Hilltop Agriturismo with Incredible Mountain Views

Our small organic farm sits on a hill along Lucca's beautiful northern countryside in the hamlet of Aquilea, with stunning views over the Valdottavo valley, the high peaks of the Appenines and the national park in the distance. We produce our own olive oil and chestnut flour, bake our own bread, make jams from our own fruit trees and classic Italian sauce from our own tomatoes, and grow a variety of vegetables. Our solar powered (well, some electric!) farmhouse has two comfortable, fully furnished apartments that will feel like home the moment you step inside! Each has its own entry on a lovely terrace where you can relax and enjoy outdoor dining, including pizza from a brick oven. 
At our above ground swimming pool, guests can enjoy sunbathing with an incredible view.

The 2-story apartment sleeps 4+2. The ground floor includes a kitchen/eating area and a sitting room with a sofa bed. On the second floor there are two bedrooms (one has 2 twin beds, but can easily be transformed into a double bedroom) and a large bathroom with shower and a bathtub. Next to the living room there's a door leading to an adjoining studio apartment that has a dinette kitchen, bathroom and bedroom and sleeps 2. The two apartments can be combined into a large 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom apartment sleeping 6+2.

Our love and respect for the environment can be seen in our organic farm with free range animals, olive groves, vegetable garden and fruit trees, as well as our beautifully restored farmhouse and apartments. We use solar panels for hot water and to help with the wood boiler heating system. We chose an above ground, moveable swimming pool that has less environmental impact, which is also heated by solar panels. The poolside gazebo has a photovoltaic roof.

If you like, we can pick you up at the train station in Lucca, bring you to the farmhouse to get settled, then loan you a car for exploring the Tuscan countryside. You can learn how to cook classic Italian dishes and, if you do not feel like cooking, enjoy being served delicious catered meals. You can even learn the Italian language. The choice is yours.

The owner speaks excellent English and will cook authentic Tuscan dinners for EUR €25 per head or guests can enjoy a delightful cooking lesson. You will take your lesson in our own, large country kitchen and enjoy your meal in our lovely dining room.

Our group of two couples stayed with Lella, Piero and family in their attached appartments for a week in early November, 2010. It was, perhaps, the highlight of a month of highlights in Italy. The property is nestled in an agricultural area just minutes from the historic sites of Lucca. What a wonderfully comfortable accomodation in the scenic hills a few miles north of Lucca, a breath of fresh air literally and figuratively. The appartments are clean, comfortable, fully equipped and have beautiful views of the valley below and mountain and ruins opposite. Lella is a thoroughly gracious hostess who cooked one meal for us and gave us a cooking lesson for another evening meal. Their family dog, Tino, a particular favorite with all of us, keeps watch over the property but is really a big lap dog. You'll love him! Lella's is convenient to Lucca, Pisa, Cinque Terra and the lovely small mountain town of Barga but you will need a car to access these sites. There are scenic roads to walk, olive trees and vines, and a particularly delightful store/bar situated on the sharpest hair-pin turn imaginable about a mile below on the winding road from Lucca to Abbacca La. We all agree we can't remember having a better time than our days at Abbacca La and we highly recommend both Lella and this location. We traveled in the "off season" and we highly recommend that as well, weather still good and small crowds..
