Casa Boccina is an early 19th century Tuscan farmhouse set in fourteen acres of gardens and forest by Monte San Quirico, a village just outside of Lucca. It is only a five minutedrive/ 35 minute walk from the beautiful walled city of Lucca. It is 14 acres of mostly flat land (7 of which is a protected forest) and has a farmhouse which sleeps ten.
In an outbuilding across from the farmhouse is a gym with four LifeCycle aerobic machines, a power plate, cable area, some free weights and an ipod docking station. Outside, we have a newly refurbished 12 x 6 metre pool with 1.2 metre shallow end and 3 metre deep end. It has a diving board, stairs for easy access, an outdoor shower and two shaded gazebos, one with a dining table and the other with a lounge area. Poolside, there is a Habitat double daybed, several individual sun loungers and a table which seats 6. It is heated May-October courtesy of our solar panel array. There is a outdoor sound system to hook your iPOD up to. Surrounding the pool, is a metre high hedge and three sets of gates to deter children. Between the pool and the house is another relaxing area which is a small garden with the early 19th century well (with protective grill) as the focal point. Beyond the pool is a 10 X 15 ft trampoline with safety net and walk a little further and on the hill you will find a large climbing frame. There is a forest with trails for you to explore across from the farmhouse. We also have a little five a side football pitch, outdoor chess board, table tennis and indoor pool table.
There is plenty of parking within easy walking distance of the farmhouse. There is a climbing frame in a shady area through the olive grove towards the end of the property.

I live in a barn conversion on the property so I water the plants and clean the pool each morning. The guests have sole use of their ample gardens and pool and I have my own garden area. The guests' have fencing and greenery for privacy. I am canadian, but I speak italian and this benefits the guests in that I am happy to make reservations for restaurants, call taxis, babysit, or call for medical attention. I can be invisible, but when guests need me, am more than happy to help.
This is an eco friendly property. We have solar panels which will heat water for the house and pool and generate electricity, and the forest provides wood to burn in the fireplace in the colder months. We have air-conditioning for the bedroom floor and kitchen which will be powered by electricity from our solar panels and will come on from noon to early evening by timer. Keeping the windows and doors shut during the day keeps the house nice and cool. In the evening, we have ceiling fans in the bedrooms as the power to the house cannot support air con at night.
Nearby, there is a gated property in which very influential Lucchese people live so although you can't see them, late at night, sound does carry. There is an outdoor sound system, but we kindly request it be turned down after 11pm. Also, the household is non-smoking so if you could smoke outdoors, we would be grateful.

I'm canadian and my husband is british and we've owned this property for 10 years. In that time we've made loads of improvements to make this property a comfortable and relaxed holiday for our guests. I love cooking, photography and gardening, am happy to help in any way and speak italian fairly well so i am happy to make reservations or order pizzas for you. :)
