Aquilea villa description

Above a charming hilltop village, just 15 minutes outside of Lucca in Tuscany, Villa Carolina is a beautiful and elegant villa with a breathtaking view from every room. This superb property offers approximately 6,000 square feet. of living space and sleeps up to 12 people. Every bedroom has its own en suite bathroom. It is an outstanding historic property which has been lovingly and tastefully restored and exquisitely furnished. Antique terra cotta floor tiles, stone walls and exposed wooden ceiling beams enhance the spacious interiors. Villa Carolina includes all top-of-the-line modern amenities including broadband internet access and contemporary comforts; yet retains the charm and old-world feel of the important villas of the region.

Though the villa remains cool in summer due to its thick stone walls and the hilltop breezes, both master bedrooms are equipped with air-conditioning and all of the bedrooms have ceiling fans. Wood ceiling beams, terra cotta floors and tasteful, comfortable furnishings enhance these bright, sun-filled rooms, all of which have large windows overlooking the view.

The property includes an olive grove of over 300 trees from which the owners produce their own prized, private-label olive oil. A sample awaits each rental party.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: The owners are well-travelled professionals who have lovingly restored this exquisite property. They have paid great attention to detail to make it a truly comfortable and well-equipped residence.

Why the Owner Chose Aquilea:
We had rented several other properties in the Lucca area and came to appreciate all it has to offer. It is not as heavily touristed as other parts of Tuscany, yet has everything one would look for --close proximity to an international airport (45 min. from Pisa), and to desirable beaches and many interesting destinations in every direction.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
the spectacular views; the opportunity to experience the local culture; the access to interesting villages, mountains, seaside and important towns; as well as a heavenly place to go nowhere and just relax.
