La Gattaiola is set amongst the Renaissance villas of south-west Lucca in one of the most beautiful and now the most protected and exclusive areas of Lucca La Gattaiola (or ‘catflap’ in English!) is a nineteenth-century Lucchesi casale or farmhouse in the heart of Tuscany and its owners are pleased to offer affordable yet luxurious accommodation for rent in a spacious and newly-renovated section of a farmhouse with breathtaking views from every window The large 3-bedroom accommodation at La Gattaiola may be rented throughout the year for long holidays or for off-season breaks sleeping a maximum of 7+3 (10) people The accommodation is located in the small village of Gattaiola on the outskirts of the Tuscan Renaissance walled city of Lucca, the birthplace of Puccini. Gattaiola is also home to one of Italy's finest Slowfood restaurants and visitors in search of authentic Tuscan gastronomy will be delighted by this gem Although situated amidst the lush green Colline Lucchesi (Lucca hills), La Gattaiola is only a stone’s throw from the centre of the city, having every amenity to hand such as small local food and wine shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants as Lucca is only 3km or a 5 minute drive away. Accessibility to motorway links also makes it perfect as a base for touring the rest of Tuscany e.g. Pisa (20 min), Florence (45 min), Chianti or for the beaches (30 min), golf (30 min) and skiing at Abetone (40 min) Located just a five minute easy drive from the historic walled city of Lucca (or 7 minutes to the walls by bike!), La Gattaiola offers the best of all worlds: proximity to the city and all its amenities combined with being located within an oasis in the verdant countryside in which to relax and recharge. La Gattaiola is set amongst olive groves & vineyards with far reaching views from the Florentine hills in the east, the many towered city of Lucca, the Apuane Alps in the north and to the Carrara marble mountains in the east
