Casa Irma is a lovely country home halfway between Lucca and Pisa; with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths it sleeps 8 people comfortably.

Originally a farmhouse, Casa Irma has been remodeled into a beautiful home. The owners took great care in maintaining the charm of the old farm building. They put together a collection of decorative objects, like iron farming tools, terracotta pots and jugs, hand-woven fabrics that you can find all over the house. The rooms are decorated with attractive country furniture.

The atmosphere is warm and cosy; the large stone Tuscan fire place is most enjoyable to use during the cooler months.

In the house there is a great choice oserving dishes and table ware as the owners love to entertain, and they change the table decorations according to the colours of the season. interior

All the ground floor rooms open out to the garden. The space outside is vast and very well kept with wide lawns, abundance of fruits trees, olive trees and grape vines - it is easy to find a quiet and shaded spot to relax. At a corner of the house open to the outside but covered, is a BBQ oven and dining area with a long tableexterior

For tennis players there is a tennis-court. In the summer time you can cool off in the swimming pool. And children have their own equipped play ground in a shaded area under the trees.

Paved road from the village, and few meters of gravelled road leads you up to the house. The distance to the village is under 1 kilometer, it's an easy 20-minute walk along this level road.

Attached to the house there is second residence, with separate entrance. It belongs to another member of the family who seldom goes there - it is not rented out. Between the two sections is a tall hedge to allow for privacy.

The care taker of the grounds lives nearby, he is a good cook of typical local cuisine, on request he can prepare very good meals.
