Casa Domenico is a country home on the grounds of the 18th century Villa Costa in Marlia, 4 miles north of Lucca. Just one block from basic food shops and one mile from Marlia's center, this used to be a rural estate of Costa family from Genova, armators operating Costa Cruise Line. You enter a large courtyard from the local road, go past a farmhouse and other agrarian structures, through the antique wrought-iron gates and into the secluded Villa garden. The house stands just inside the entrance and is about 80 yards from the Villa main's house connected with the lawn and a row of the trees.
The ground floor has one large living area with a single sofa, dining corner, and a new Tuscany style chestnut wood kitchen with modern equipment. From the kitchen is an entrance to a covered patio with beautiful antique terracotta pavement and a beamed ceiling.
On the patio, there is an extraordinary medieval well lined with large river rock. The opening is level with the floor. So that you can see the fine workmanship, we have covered it with an iron grill and heavy glass with a light inside. The patio can be used for outdoor eating, even when it's raining. Floor plan.
Upstairs are two adjoining bedrooms: a double bedroom; and a reading room with double sofa bed and French bed. Plus there is a single bedroom, which shares a bathroom with shower with the other bedrooms. Click for floor plan. All bedroom windows have screens.


The house has been completely renovated in traditional Tuscan style. Terra-cotta, stone and wood elements, along with simple but comfortable furnishings, give Casa Domenico a warm, cozy atmosphere. All windows have mosquito screens. A telephone, color TV and washing machine are included. Maid service is available at Euro 8/hour.

Casa Domenico has a large garage with parking space and laundry corner. There is a garden lawn, furnished with armchairs and an umbrella. One section of the garden is available for guests to pick organic herbs. The property is just 100 yards from the bus stop to Lucca Historical Center and the railroad station.
