La Limonaia was originally the winter resting place for pots of lemon trees to protect them from frost and cold winds from December through to March each year. It has now been lovingly restored as a small comfortable home for up to 5 guests in the southern hills of Lucca, in a well known olive producing area known as the Compitese. The estate itself, also comprising the owner’s villa, is surrounded by beautiful terraced olive groves and pretty views across the hills and countryside.
The main entrance is through large arched glass doors leading into an entrance hall and open plan ground floor. There is a well equipped kitchen with fireplace and tables and chairs for family dining. There is a 4 ring gas hob, small electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge. Also on the ground floor is a corner with armchairs and satellite TV. There is a double bedroom, single bedroom and a bathroom with double marble sink and a walk in shower. A staircase off the entrance hall leads to a gallery floor.
There is one double bedroom overlooking the open-plan ground area with a small lounge/desk area with computer, printer and internet facilities. There is an air-conditioning unit installed on this open gallery floor, which keeps the whole house cool throughout the Tuscan summer months.
