I Concari is a traditional stone-built Tuscan home set within its own pretty gardens with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, just a short distance from the medieval walled city of Lucca and close to a small village. 

Brimming with natural charm and local character, this farmhouse style home has abundant original touches, and accommodates eight guests across four bedrooms and bathrooms set over two storeys. 

I Concari stands graciously within its own elegant gardens, framed with terracotta pots spilling with vibrant flowering plants, lavender shrubs with classically cloistered porch and dining pergola; the scene is set for stylish outdoor living. Guests can enjoy alfresco barbecue meals, or chef-prepared dinners under the stars, in the fragrant garden air, or simply a low-key poolside breakfast. The pool is fenced within its own terraced patio, offering beautiful views of the rolling countryside, and a fine spot to relax with a holiday read and cold drink surrounded by olive groves and green lawns. For that added touch of decadence, the indulgent feel of slipping into guest’s own bubbling jacuzzi will hit the right note. Illuminated at night, the outdoor spaces are majestically executed at this lovely home.

Stepping inside, I Concari blends the best of traditional charm along with contemporary comforts; a home-from-home with all the extra attention to detail elements that make a holiday home seamless. The farmhouse style kitchen is a warmly welcoming environment for group time, with the curved brick-built ceiling and soft-wash lighting creating low-key provincial style. 

With arched entrances, exposed timber beams running through to the salmon-toned living space features flagstone flooring and an open fireplace. This subtly restored home emanates authentic Tuscan style. Simple and home-like along with old-world charm by way of candelabras and ornately gilded mirrors together with antique furniture, this home has hints of classical elegance within a cosily relaxed set-up.

The bedrooms are both sedate yet chic, offering understated style, simple use of original raw materials, elegant solid timber furniture and pristine white linen; each of the four bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. The prettily shuttered windows look onto views that are akin to a Renaissance painting.

Set with its own private estate down a gravel drive framed with olive groves and vineyards, I Concari enjoys an enviable position, enjoying both rural seclusion as well as easy access local amenities. This rustic idyll in the hills between Lucca and Pisa enjoys a veritable Tuscan setting, while the elegant beach clubs of the Versilia coast are no more than half an hour’s drive. 

Lucca’s renowned medieval amphitheatre and 12th-century churches and the original city walls (that are, today, a pedestrianised promenade) are central attractions. The Lucca Province offers beautiful Tuscan countryside as well as proximity to key Renaissance cities (Florence 80km), whilst local hilltop towns, stunning stretches of coastline and the Apuan Alps to the splendid Garfagnana region (mountain area in the north-west, 55km) are all within reach.

I Concari enjoys a semi-rural setting, surrounded by rolling countryside punctuated with olive groves and vineyards, whilst the local village is only 1 kilometre distance, where a post-office and pizzeria can be found. Another village, 3km away, has further amenities for stocking up on provisions. 

Nestled between Lucca and Pisa, this stylish dwelling enjoys proximity to the beautiful northern Tuscan region, spanning the splendid Garfagnana mountains, the Apuan Alps and the Italian “riviera” (Versilia coast). 

Lucca is known for its Roman amphitheatre set in the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, as well as the archaeological remains under the twelfth-century church of Saints Giovanni and Reparata and villas and towers from the twelfth to sixteenth centuries, history lovers will be in their element. The original city walls are a pedestrian walk, that can be enjoyed at visitors’ own pace; they are dotted with shaded benches offering a gelato pit-stop and excellent views. Pisa is known worldwide for its iconic white marble Romanesque leaning tower, yet also has a lively student culture as well as a bustling cafe and bar life. 

Forte dei Marmi is a buzzing nightlife spot, known for its designer boutiques and trendy seaside atmosphere, as well as its premium quality marble. Forte dei Marmi also boasts a golf course. Close by, visitors can explore the Torre del Lago where Giacomo Puccini lived and wrote his operas. Today there's an open-air theatre by the lake where visitors can enjoy Puccini's operas beneath the stars

Viareggio has a 10km stretch of beach, and famous 3km long boulevard known as  “La Passeggiata,” running parallel to the beach dotted with gelato cafes, seafood restaurants and boutiques. The Caffe Margherita is Puccini’s former haunt and remains largely unchanged. The medieval city of Pietrasanta on the Versilia coast is known for its artistic heritage, art galleries and fine dining; this stretch attracts a well-heeled International crowd and an active summer nightlife season

Florence is an hour and 20 minute’s drive away, and an unmissable day trip when in this region. Fewer cities are more packed with enchanting architecture, romantic art and medieval churches brimming with frescos and candle-lit chapels, the most notable of which is the duomo: a cathedral with a terracotta-tiled dome engineered by Brunelleschi and a bell tower by Giotto.

Northern Tuscany and the Versilia coast are abundant with opportunity for family visitors. 

Many of the beaches offer pedalos and water sports, whilst younger children will enjoy shallow waters, sea-side gelato and building sandcastles. Older children can snorkel for sea creatures, and families with children of all ages will be out for evening promenades.

Sunlight Park at Pisa offers a fun-filled family day out. Little ones can play in the smaller splash parks and shallow pools while the older kids can enjoy slides and rides. Pistoia Zoo is located in the hills near Pistoia and is one of the most popular zoos in Italy; covering seven hectares, it boasts an array of species for a fun and educational day out.

What could be more enchanting than a day of dolphin watching at the Pelagos Sanctuary in Viareggio, followed by a meal in a local hilltop restaurant! From hiking and horse-riding to watersports and cultural heritage, children of all ages will learn so much from a visit to Tuscany.

Reviews

  • We wish we could stay for longer!

    Created on 17/08/2023

    Really smooth check in, particularly appreciated being met by the house manager at the McDonald’s in Lucca so that he could guide us to the villa. It would have been quite tricky to find on our own - it’s in a beautiful private location on the hillside surrounded by olive trees and grape vines with gorgeous views down the valley. The villa is probably the best equipped we’ve ever stayed in. The photos don’t do it justice, it’s wonderfully charming with lots of thoughtful details. The beds are very comfortable. The host has also been very accommodating, booking us a table at the local restaurant (great pizza!) a private winery tour (amazing wine!) and recommending a beach club for us to visit on the nearby coast. We wish we could stay for longer!!

  • Incredible!

    on 16/06/2018

    We had an amazing time! The villa is so comfortable and the view is breathtaking! Hosts made my stay and my birthday so special. They are incredible at what they do.

  • We will return!

    on 19/05/2018

    It’s hard to explain in words how much fun, how comfortable and how warm this home has been for us the past three weeks. We will return!
