Canapino is an imposing Tuscan restored farmhouse, set on stunning position with spectacular, expansive view of Lucca and environs. On a clear day the view stretches to the sea beyond Pisa. The property is a perfect combination of comfort and quiet, past and present, giving origin to a place without time. The interior design, simple but stylish, as well as the whole architecture of the house, is a game of clean lines and airy space which seems to aim to endless and perfection. Styled exterior, with lush landscaping and wooden bridge walkway from gravel parking area to entrance, and swimming pool with infinity view also looking out from hill. From the first floor alleyway you get a glimpse on the dining room downstairs and from the sitting room you have a look on a bedroom's detail. Quick looks spreading on to wide rooms show the particular care of the modern restoration, while the ancient stone walls, the cotto floors and the beamed ceilings testify the main ancient Tuscan character. Interior features unique contemporary architecture inside, including Chinese Ming Dynasty furniture and select international contemporary art. Cool breeze and abundant windows provide cool air; no air conditioning needed. There is a lovely garden with plentiful fresh basil, tomatoes, rosemary, thyme etc.
