Fantastic holiday house in medieval village in the Lucca hills, Tuscany. With private pool and fantastic unobstructed views. Pisa, Florence, Lucca and Siena are all nearby. The house is situated in the Apuan Alps for great walks and hiking. Pisa airport is a 50 minute drive.
'Brama Sole' is a house that was built in different stages. The oldest part is probably from around 1650 (the house next to it carries the year 1638). After that more pieces were added, resulting in a house that measures about 140 square meters. The house was formerly used as a small farm, downstairs were some stables for goats and upstairs there was space to live. From 1960 onwards the house was not used anymore and it's only purpose was storage. In 2007 the house came for sale and the current owners bought it. The location of the house is ideal. On top of a hill with beautiful views from the garden and from all the rooms. On the land below you will find olivetrees which are hundreds of years old. Once a year they are handpicked and will produce the finest quality of olive oil. The house is in a separate part of the village together with around 10 other houses. This house is the last house of them and is freestanding. It's away from the road, cars can't be heard. Parking is possible on one of the parkingspots at the beginning of the village, from there it's a 75 meter walk to the house. You will have to walk some stairs as well, therefor this house is unfortunately not suitable for people who have difficulty walking and children in strollers.
Your privacy is guaranteed since the not used, empty house nextdoor is from the same owner.
When the house was bought there was nothing there. No electricity, no running water and no gasconnection. Besides that the whole house was full of old furniture and garbage. In 3 years time the house was restored completely to save it from further decline. The stable is now the livingroom combined with the kitchen and the henhouse is replaced by a porch from where you have stunning views. The large hayloft is turned into the bathroom and the old waterbassin for the animals now is a large bench where you can enjoy a glass of wine on long evenings. The house is restored with respect to it's old elements. The beamed ceilings are still visible and also the terra cotta floors are still there.
Since the house is very wide (almost 20 meters) but relatively narrow (4 meter) there is no inside stairway. On both sides of the house are stairs that will lead to the bedrooms and bathroom. Two bedrooms have direct access to the bathroom, the third bedroom has it's own entrance, but not a direct access to the bathroom. To get to the bathroom from this bedroom you have to walk a few steps outside. The house features 3 bedrooms for 2 persons each.
The house is well equiped. The kitchen has all appliances, such as dishwasher, convection oven, microwave, fridge and a freezer. The bathroom has double sinks, a fullsize bath and separate shower. The bedrooms have good beds with down duvets. In 2 bedrooms are 2 single beds (200 x 90 cm) that can be set against eachother if wished. The third bedroom has a double bed (160 x 200 cm). The living room has TV with DVD player. There is no cable- or satellite connection for the TV. In colder months central heating will keep the house warm. A washing machine is present to allow for a longer stay. Also a foldable baby cot is available in the house.
The garden measures about 400 square meters and gives beautiful views of the valley and the surrounding mountains. The private pool is 7,5m x 3,6m x 1,3 m. The pool has a wooden deck around it with sunbeds so you can enjoy the sun. The chestnut tree will give you some shade later in the afternoon. In case of some rain there is the porch of 6m x 4m where you can sit and enjoy the views.
You will have access to the whole house, private pool, private terrace and private garden.

I'm an easy going guy that loves to travel adventurous. Australia, the US, Asia, I love to go there and see other cultures. The house in Italy is a place where i can truly relax, it feels like coming home every time i'm there. On average i'm in Partigliano 3 to 4 times a year. For the rest of the time my family and friends use the house or i rent it out, the guests that have been there in the past years have been wonderful, nice people.
