The beautiful antique house is located in the center of the small mountain village of Montecarlo in the province of Lucca and was extensively restored and converted into a guest house a few years ago. As soon as you enter the large hall, you will be greeted by a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The mix of antiques and typical Tuscan furnishing elements, paired with bright colors and beautiful fabrics, runs like a guide through all rooms of the nested house.
On the ground floor there is a spacious kitchen, which has retained its original character with its beautiful old fireplace and antique stone sink.
In the warm season you can sit outside in the small courtyard for breakfast. This courtyard is bordered on one side by part of the ancient city wall, which can be reached via a few steps. From there you have a wide view of the valley "Val di Nievole" up to the Appuan Alps.
There is also a large tavern in the basement of the house. This room, which served as a laboratory for the village pharmacist more than 100 years ago. It can be used for reading or playing (a selection of books, magazines and games is available). From there, a patio door leads to a second courtyard with tables and chairs.
The house has a very personal and family character and is appreciated by families with children (a paddling pool can be set up in the courtyard) as well as by groups of friends.
It is approximately 16 km to the city of Lucca, 60 km to Florence and 50 km to the sea at Viareggio.

In midsummer or during one of the village festivals, the search for a parking space can take a little longer.
Wir waren vor Pfingsten in Montecarlo und es gab keinen Tag ohne Regen aber dank der tollen Unterkunft und den vielen netten Tips von Mirijam (die deutsche Hälfte der beiden Betreiberinnnen) war das kein Problem. Wir hatten das Zimmer bzw. die Suit "Peperosa", das mit viel Liebe und Charm eingerichtet ist. Das Wohnzimmer ist nahezu riesig. Die Wohnung ist direkt unter dem Dach und wirkt durch den offenen Dachstuhl super groß. Die Gemeinschaftsküche im Erdgeschoss ist gemütlich und lädt zum verweilen ein. Je nachdem wieviele Zimmer belegt sind, trifft man hier morgens unterschiedliche Nationen beim gemeinsamen Frühstück am großen Tisch. Wenn das Wetter gut ist kann man auch auf der "Mauer" die zum Haus gehört frühstücken und hat dabei einen gigantischen Weitblick. Wir können dieses Haus nur empfehlen. Die Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft der beiden Betreiberinnen ist wirklich aussergewöhnlich. Mirijam hat uns so viele gute Tips, zur Umgebung aber auch zu den Restaurants in der Nähe gegeben. Einfach toll!!!
