Villa Lean is a 12th-century farmhouse on the hills of Lucca, 12 km from Lucca. The property belonged to the famous English director David Lean ("Dr. Zivago", "War and Peace") who fell in love with the fabulous landscape that stretches across the valley of Lucca to the hills of Pisa where the sea is seen. The farmhouse has been restored to accommodate 10 people and can be rented for both a single group and as independent units. Owners are at guests' disposal to accompany customers interested in MTB or off-road excursions to discover the medieval hamlets in the area. On site there is a restaurant where, upon reservation, you can enjoy local dishes and hand-made cheeses by the owner, winners of numerous awards nationwide.
Description: The house consists of two separate areas that can accommodate up to 10 people and can be rented either for a single group or as an independent unit. The main house (8 beds max) has four bright bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen and a living room. The oldest part of the house, which dates back to the 12th century, has 2 beds in a romantic room with fireplace, seating area with kitchenette, bathroom with shower and bathtub.
Each part of the cottage has its independence and privacy. At the end of a day spent on mountain biking or walking on the numerous paths from the property, we offer a relaxing sauna, all accompanied by the benefits of the herbal teas and scents of our organic herbs.
All kitchens are equipped with appliances, utensils and everything you need to cook. On request we can serve you some dishes from our Tuscan tradition.
At Villa Lean you can also have a seasonal outdoor swimming pool.
MTB Guide: Owners, who have a great mountain bike experience, offer a variety of itineraries with varying levels of difficulty. From the easy laps on the hills to discover the famous Lucchese Villas, to the emotion of the single-track descent. During the very hot summer months, high mountain tours, on the Appennines, are organized. Other tours include 5 lands, the perfect round the year!
Tuscany's most beautiful art cities are just a few kilometers away: Lucca (12 km); Pisa (30 km); Florence (80 km).
