Historic Estate in the Hills of Lucca
Historic Estate. In a hill top location in the verdant Lucca countryside, with a wonderful view of the Serchio river and the valley, this historic estate enjoys a central position between the cities of Lucca and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, just over 20 km from the property. Services are located 6 km from the villa. Viareggio and the Versilia coast are 50 km away, as are the ski slopes of Abetone and Pisa international airport.
