*****THE VILLA*****

The house, with its 450 SQUARE METRES, sleeps up to 12 PEOPLE.
The ground floor is very spacious with a large entrance, a sitting room with fireplace, a formal dining room, a large fully fitted kitchen, a small study with a stunning 46' high definition satellite tv (with blu-ray player and more than 30 movies to choose from), an elegant and cozy bedroom with two joinable single beds, and a full bathroom.

On the first floor there are five air-conditioned bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms: two of them are double-bedded, one is the magnificent master bedroom; two more rooms are twin-bedded, while the last one comes with two joinable single beds. All bedroms are spacious with tasteful furnishing, ample wardrobe space and have large open windows overlooking the 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 Mr. Caporali, the greatest craftsman in Arezzo. Moreover, the Villa is completely floored with mezzane, while ceilings have been restored with ancient chestnut beams.

*****LOCATION AND PANORAMA*****

The location of Villa Segale is magnificent.
Perched among green and forested valleys west of Lucca, SEGALE IS SURROUNDED BY 80 ACRES (32 HECTARES) OF OLIVE GROVES AND VINEYARDS. Such a wide area allows plenty of space to wander and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the property's extensive grounds.

Its spectacular view across the valley towards the Renaissance monuments of the cities of Lucca and Pisa is to die for. Thanks to its height of 350 m. above sea level and to its unique position, on a typical clear day guests can admire the valley below and the whole landscape up to 40 km around.
Photos cannot portray the powerful details of such a EXCEPTIONAL VIEW WHICH IS RECOGNIZED AS THE MOST STUNNING IN THE AREA.

In the 80 Acres (32 hectares) territory with a 360° panoramic view, hunting is strictly forbidden the whole year round. Hence guests can join the natural unspoilt surroundings and admire the local fauna such as owls, poults, hawks, hedgehogs and fireflies.

Owner info

About the owner: I am a doctor, who inherited this beautiful place almost 10 years ago. After generations this wonderful place 'arrived' to me and to my family, and we've immediately felt in love with it!

Why the Owner Chose Lucca:
This is a truly unique place and that's the reason why I love it so much. Considering today's standards, it's almost impossible to still find places with similar attributes: a fascinating hystorical stonehouse surrounded by 32 hectares of land - including olivegroves and wineyards - immersed in a complete sense of privacy and tranquility. But at the same time being really near to Lucca city (9km) as well as to other many fascinating places. This place is a truly special hidden pearl !

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Enjoying the most beautiful panorama of the Lucca area and living inside a traditional 11th century stonehouse that has carefully been renewed with the highest standards, but at the same time keeping completely intact the beautiful Tuscan tradition. The position is also unique: it grants a strong sense of privacy and allows guests to enjoy a real nature-intensive regenerating experience. At the same time the strategic position, just 9 km from Lucca city, allows guest to visit all the other beautiful cities and places of Tuscany (and outside Tuscany) with day trips.
