The villa is an historical stone country house dating back to the 11th century, strategically located on the charming hills above Lucca. Its unique and privileged position allows guests to discover the most renowned areas of Tuscany and Liguria. The spacious villa (5.000 ft² – 450 m²) enjoys an unrivalled panorama and is surrounded by 80 acres (32 hectares) of private land, including enchanting vineyards and olive groves from which excellent wine and exquisite extra virgin olive oil are produced following authentic Tuscan traditions. Such an uncommon spectacular area allows plenty of space to wander and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the property’s extensive grounds where guests can join the natural unspoilt surroundings and admire the local fauna including owls, birds, hawks, hedgehogs and fireflies. Though seemingly remote, the villa is conveniently located close to the walled city of Lucca and the Renaissance city of Pisa, which can be observed in the spectacular panorama offered from the villa. After a long period of research regarding the territory, the villa – which sleeps up to 12 people – was beautifully restored according to the highest standard and comforts. The ground floor is spacious 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 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 with queen-beds and are considered the magnificent master bedrooms; the other three rooms come with twin beds (if joined they form a queen bed), so that each guest may choose the perfect configuration for his or her needs. All bedrooms are spacious with tasteful furnishing, ample wardrobe space and have large open windows overlooking the charming valley and enjoy 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. The villa has been designed and restored using only antique, traditional, and original materials. The villa, maintaining its traditional Tuscan authenticity, offers the perfect blend of modern comforts and traditional charm. At this unique and wonderful place, guests are sure to enjoy a phenomenal Tuscan retreat.
