Villa Ripa, which was originally the guesthouse of a former convent, was built in the early 700's and remodelled in the 800's, the structure remaining unchanged since then. �The property is surrounded by approximately five hectares of land, three of which are woods. As well as a vast and partially terraced garden in a style typical of the time, there is also an olive grove with 400 trees. A�walkway�leads from the buildings to�a secluded, circular�clearing that is surrounded by trees; a perfect haven away from the main body of the villa.��The villa�measures approximately 1,100 square metres in size and�has been�meticulously maintained in every way. Full of�original features and internal decoration the�wonderful reception rooms and bedrooms are�extremely comfortable and homely whilst losing none of the classic elegance one would expect to find in a villa of this type. The custodian's quarters are attached to the villa itself and have their�own independent access.�
A second building consists of a vaulted 'limonaia' on the ground floor with�an�open plan converted loft area above.�In addition there is a small chapel dedicated to St. Francis, it forms part of the property and is opened for worship on the feast day of the saint. �The pool is located behind the house in a location that is both sunny and secluded.�Close to Lucca (5kms) and to Pisa airport (12kms) Villa Ripa is both convenient and private; an authentic home with plenty of potential.
