This charming rustico is in a secluded foothill location midway between Viareggio and Lucca (15min from Viareggio, 25min from Lucca), near the hamlet of Montemagno with shops and restaurants.

The haybarn dating back to the XII Century was originally a resting stop for the pilgrims heading towards Rome on the Via Francigena, a route that led to the Vatican from North of Europe. A little chapel on the entrance road is still present and it has been incorporated in the wall surrounding the villa. Even nowadays, pilgrims are still visible walking their way to Rome, often leading a mule carrying their supplies.

The house, completely and finely restored, preserving the original features (cotto flooring and chestnut exposed beams), is composed of 2 double bedrooms, one bathroom, a downstairs toilet and cloakroom, living room with open fireplace and kitchen. Outside there is a large portico, an in-ground swimming-pool (3x5 mt), a barbeque and an acre of very secluded private garden.

All the furniture inside is original and it is included in the price, apart from the bed and wardrobe in the main room.

The house is provided with heating (external LPG Tank) and the fireplace has air circulation in the bedroom upstairs. Fire wood is easily available. The thick original stone walls ensure perfect insulation and the house is warm in 10min after putting the heating on. Conversely, in the summer, it remains cool, with the added feature of A/C in the main bedroom (never used so far).

Broadband Wi-fi connection through ADSL aerial.

All restoration work has been carried out using local materials and preserving the existing original structure, so the house features chestnut tree beams and Tuscan cotto style tiles.

Irrigation of the garden is guaranteed by the presence of a little well with relevant pump. The house, however, is connected to the main grid both for water and electricity. Illumination of garden is present (on a timer).

Below the garden,totally fenced and private, is a large car parking area with electronic gate

The house is rented on a weekly basis and has a good income record, with bookings already for 2016

Ideal for a summer retreat for a family with 2/3 kids or 2 couples, it is the perfect place to enjoy a cool summer and explore the beautiful areas around it.
15km from Lido di Camaiore and Viareggio beach resorts, it is a perfect compromise for beach-loving people as well as those who love trekking and cultural trips.
A very good opportunity for those wanting to spend part or whole of their time in Italy and make some extra income.

The location, being very close to Pisa Airport (45km approx), lends itself to be used to weekends only for those living in London or any other airport connected to Pisa with low-cost airlines.
