The house is truly lovely. It is an 18th-century stone building with three floors spanning roughly 325 square feet each.
In short, the house is made up of: 1 kitchen/living room + 2 bedrooms + 1 full bathroom + 1 powder room + 2 pantries. The house does not have a lawn, but there is space just outside the French doors leading out from the downstairs bedroom for a small table, sunshade and chairs. There are two entrances, the front door which takes you into the kitchen/pantry and the back door which leads to the downstairs bedroom, as the house is nestled on a hill, with three floors on one side and two on the other. You should be able to get a better understanding of the layout from the pictures.
The house is fully furnished with all new or antique pieces (Tuscan pieces from the 19th century), except for a wardrobe. The light fixtures are lavish and we have provided a television (satellite), radio and CD player. We have not yet installed a telephone (there is a public phone in town if you don't have a mobile), but telephone, computer, and internet access are available at our office. A central heating system (gas) has also been installed. And, naturally, a working fireplace adorns the second floor, as how would a mountain house be complete without one!
Overall Property Description:
Pascoso, the town.
The house is nestled in a small mountain town called Pascoso, in the Apuane Park, 2,231 feet above sea level. Pascoso, in the Tuscan province of Lucca, has just under 100 inhabitants and is so small, with such narrow stone roads, that cars enter town along a short strip of the main road only. Nearly all the houses in town are built in stone, including their rooftops, and the smooth stones of the streets were laid hundreds of years ago. Pascoso is a hiker's paradise;however, it is not far from the 'cities of arts' of Tuscany:Lucca, Pisa, Florence, and Siena are 15, 30, 60, and 95 miles far; moreover,Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi,among the most famous Italian beaches, are 30 miles far, including 15 on the highway.
