The villa is an historical stone country house dating from the 11th century, strategically located on the charming hills above Lucca. Its unique and privileged position allows his guests to discover all the most important areas of Tuscany and Liguria (Portofino and Cinque Terre).
The villa (5.000 ft² – 450 m²) enjoys an unrivaled panorama and it is surrounded by 80 acres (32 hectares) of private land, including enchanting vineyards and olive groves. Such an uncommon spectacular area allows plenty of space to wander and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the property’s extensive grounds. Hence guests can join the natural unspoilt surroundings and admire the local fauna such as owls, birds, hawks, hedgehogs and fireflies.
The spectacular view across the valley towards the Renaissance monuments of the cities of Lucca and Pisa is to die for. Thanks to its exclusive position, on a typical clear day guests can admire the valley below and the whole landscape up to 40 km around. On the clearest days also the sea of Livorno can be seen. The bedrooms, the two verandas and the large private swimming pool all enjoy this wonderful and unique panorama. Photos cannot portray the powerful details of such an exceptional view which is recognized as the most stunning in the whole area of Lucca.
After long deep research on the territory, the villa – who sleeps up to 12 people – was beautifully restored according to the highest standard and comforts.
The ground floor is huge with a large entrance, a sitting room with fireplace, a formal dining room, a large fully fitted kitchen, a small study with a high definition satellite TV (with blu-ray player and a private movie collection), an elegant and cozy air-conditioned bedroom with joinable twin beds (if joined they form a queen bed), and a full bathroom. Two big panoramic verandas – the first one for dining, equipped with a stone BBQ and a spacious stone table, and the second one for relaxation, equipped with outdoor sofas – complete the ground floor.
On the first floor there are five air-conditioned bedrooms with en suite bathrooms: two of them are queen-bedded and are considered the magnificent master bedrooms; the other three rooms come with joinable twin beds (if joined they form a queen bed), so that each guest may choose the perfect configuration for his needs. All bedrooms are spacious with tasteful furnishing, ample wardrobe space and have large open windows overlooking the charming valley and enjoying the same spectacular view characteristic of the house.
The furniture dates back to the 19th century and was purchased in antique shops in the area of Tuscany. The wrought-iron comfortable beds were all handmade by one the greatest craftsman in Arezzo. Moreover, the Villa is completely floored with ancient mezzane, while ceilings have been restored with ancient chestnut beams. These are just a few examples, since only ancient original materials were used in the renovation process, in order to completely preserve the authentic Tuscan tradition of this unique wonderful place.
