If you’re buying a property in Tuscany, your choice is sure to be influenced by those ambrosial foods for which the region is famous. Sun-ripened fruits, olives, prosciutto and porcini are just some of the local ingredients found in speciality dishes that have visitors to Tuscany rushing to the nearest trattoria.

However, if you’re serious about a sleek kitchen with high-spec units and high-tech appliances, you’re making a property purchase in the right place. Designer Italian kitchens are now famous worldwide for their immaculate finish, and iconic kitchen suppliers like Scavolini are ideally placed to meet your brief. You might find the previous owner has already installed a new space-defying kitchen in that compact apartment for sale in Lucca. Or perhaps your Winkworth property agent has tracked down an affordable property in the Lucca hills (like the one pictured below), with change to spare for a transformation of its vast kitchen space.
Look inside this property for sale in the Lucca hills and you’ll find a vast kitchen space.
Appointing Winkworth International as your real-estate agent in Tuscany is a huge advantage for your property search, whatever your brief. Over the years we’ve established an extensive vendor database, so we frequently hear about property before it officially moves to the market. We’ve also been selling homes in Tuscany long enough to give valuable advice to buyers on the legalities and logistics of altering a property, where to find fittings and fixtures and who to approach for building work.
We even make it our business to track down the best food-spiration! Winkworth’s David King recommends taking a break from your property viewings to visit another Tuscan must-have, Buca di Sant’Antonio. Situated in the centre of Lucca, this local institution has been serving luccese specialities since 1782. “This timeless trattoria is one of many reasons why you don’t just invest in Tuscan property, but a delicious slice of Tuscan life too,” David says.
