Macennere is a lovely stone-built farmhouse located in a very secluded and tranquil position in the hills of Lucca. The area, Forci, is one of the most beautiful in all the Luccan countryside. Despite its quiet location, the property is also just 15 minutes by car from the centre of Lucca. From the house and the garden, surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees, there are wonderful views over the countryside, from the Apuan Alps down to the plain of Lucca. The house has been recently restored and very tastefully furnished by a interior decorator for the use of his family and is now available for rent when they are not in residence. He has used authentic Tuscan materials, such as antique cotto floors and beamed ceilings, and furnished it in a very attractive rustic, yet elegant style. Both to the front and back of the house there are outside eating areas with a built-in barbecue. The house has been featured in a 14-page article in an edition of the magazine “The World of Interiors” and in a 5-page review in one April 2005 issue of "The Times" magazine. The 1,5 kilometres road, leading to the house, is not suitable for cars with low suspensions or for nervous drivers.


Cleaning service is included 3 hours a day, 3 days a week.

Guest Reviews for Macennere

A N. (Canada)

One of the best properties we have ever been (and we rent one every year). The setting, the character, the caretaker... everything is special in Macennere!

T C. (Belgium)

A great villa, probably one of the best ones we have visited. The road is a bit difficult but worthing the place.

S B. (Austria)

Beautiful house with great pool. Ideal for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful views. Great area.Tough, you need to pay attention for the road to the villa.

Unsere Ferien sind zu ende und wir könne auf unvergessliche Tage im Haus Macennere zurückgblicken. Ich möchte Ihnen recht herzlich danken für die super Organisation! Es hat alles bestens geklappt und das Haus Macennere ist der absolute Hammer (trotz der etwas ungewohnten Zufahrt :-) ) Das Haus hat alle unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Nochmals besten Dank für Ihre Bemühungen. (Marco Mertins) Our holiday are at the end and we can already think at the unforettable days spent at Macennere. I would like to thank you very much for the super organization! Everything went at the best and the house Macennere is absolutely fantastic (although the unusual drive) The house exceeded our expectations. Again, thank you for your assistance. (translation from the German by Salogi)

Das Ferienhaus hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen. Wir waren uns einig, daß dies das schönste und am liebevollsten eingerichte Haus war, in dem wir bis jetzt waren. Alles bis ins letzte Detail gestylt, aber doch wohnlich. Individuell mit allen Küchenutensilien, wie sie vorhanden sind, wenn der Besitzer darin selber wohnt. Aufteilung der Schlafzimmer fast gleichwertig mit liebevollen Bädern. Mit eigenem Gemüsegarten zur Benutzung und liebevoller Betreung durch 2 Gärtner und Putzfrau. Man darf sich allerdings nicht durch die Zufahrt schrecken lassen, die doch ziemlich zeitaufwändig ist. Diese Abgeschiedenheit macht natürlich auch den besonderen Reiz aus, glaubt man doch in seiner eigenen Welt zu sein. Für große Besichtigungstouren ist die Anfahrt eher abschreckend, was für uns kein Problem war...... slow down!! Haben abseits der ausgetretenen Pfade eine Wanderung am Rande bzw. drch. die Steinbrüche von Carrara unternohmen. Mit klapprigen Bus von Carrara nach Trano und zu Fuß über die Berge zurück nach Carrara.

The house at Macennere is spectacular - intentionally rustic, totally comfortable and charming . . . and we could have stayed forever. The driveway is a bit intimidating, but worth the trip. The grounds of the house are equally spectacular. We were content to spend the evenings at the house preparing dinners that included fresh produce from the gardens and fruit trees. The kitchen has everything we needed (including a pasta maker) and the wood burning outdoor grill worked wonders. Bedrooms are large and the beds very comfortable with plenty of privacy for our group of 3 couples, a single and 2 teens. The location in the hills was just what we wanted - - very much away from everything. I hope we will be able to return some day!!
