Il Borghetto in San Gennaro

San Gennaro, Lucca

A lovely large pool and garden to share – Tuscan country views from bright rooms, hike from the door - visit Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Siena


14 beds


17 bedrooms


Sleeps 22


At the end of its private track, among olive groves not far from Lucca, this old farmhouse is neatly divided into five bright, pristine apartments: three ground-floor, plus two-storey Casa Noscali and Casa San Gennaro. Each has a different layout; all have open-plan living areas, modern kitchens and shower rooms, terracotta tiled floors and chestnut beamed ceilings, art from local markets and a mix of antique finds and practical contemporary pieces. The feel is uncluttered, in a stylish way. TV-free bedrooms have good linen, firm mattresses and rolling countryside views; a few have double glass doors onto the garden, some have beds that ‘float’ in the middle of the room… Outside there’s plenty of well-tended lawn space, with shady trees and a huge – five by 12 metre – pool for guests to share. Or simply pull on your boots and go hiking from the door; the Garfagnana region’s National Parks have some of the best trails in Italy. This is a great place for groups; ask super-helpful Jim if you’d like an English-speaking caterer or tips on seeing Tuscany by train; children love the Pinocchio Park in Collodi.

Local points of interest from Jim Kachenmeister

  • Watch our aerial video tour of il Borghetto in San Gennaro. Just go to YouTube and search for il Borghetto in San Gennaro.
  • We are ideally situated mid-way between Pisa and Florence. The Pescia train station, 10 minutes away with free parking, can take you to Pisa, Florence, the Cinque Terra and more.
  • Our local wines from Montecarlo and the Lucca hills are becoming more famous every day. We can arrange wine tours and tastings with wineries just 15 minutes away. Some will even let you help them pick the grapes in September!
  • Club Alpina d'Italia does a great job marking hiking trails throughout our hillsides. The hiking path up to the historic village of San Gennaro goes right past our front door!
  • Our monthly antique market in Lucca on the third weekend of each month finds all the major squares and piazzas filled with linens, silver, china, furniture and more.
  • Our local knowledge can help make your holiday hassle free. We can pre-book an entry time for you to see The David in Florence, so you can skip the queue. Great restaurants, wine tours, opera and other musical events are all waiting for you.
