Capannori villa description

This extraordinary villa estate dates from 1700 and lies in Tuscany in a stunning location at the foot of the 'Noble Hills' amid 6 acres of woods, vineyards and olive groves. Just 5 Kms from the walled city of Lucca, this gated villa offers the ultimate in privacy and facilities. The main villa offers 1000 square meters of living space on three floors and is beautifully furnished with many original antiques. The ground floor is very grand, a true noble residence. An imposing staircase leads to the first floor and opens onto a large salon. Four bedroom suites, including the master suite with its own sitting room, open onto this meticulously restored room. The second floor of the estate, reached by a wide marble staircase, is made up of three other bedroom suites and a gym/exercise room.  The gym/exercise room on the second floor is an expansive space, very lofty and quiet, a perfect place for a workout.  All bedrooms are air conditioned. All of the bathrooms were renovated recently

Striking frescoes adorn the walls in the entry salon and the main foyer.  Large french doors line one wall of the entry salon and look out over the estate's expansive front lawn, fountains and gardens. The living room and formal dining room are beautifully decorated and spacious rooms.  The vaulted ceilings have been restored and both rooms have access to the grounds through double doors that lead to gracious outside terraces.
Also on the ground floor is a billiards room, complete with antique table and proper lighting.  The room also contains leather chairs, a small bar and a large-screen satellite TV.

The master suite overlooks the gardens and park at the rear of the property.  It has its own sitting room with fireplace and its own marble bath.  A second bedroom suite also has its own ensuite marble bath and a sitting area within the room. Two other bedroom suites make up the rest of the first floor.  Each has its own sitting area and marble bath.  All bedrooms are very airy and spacious with many double windows that look out onto the beautiful grounds.

The expansive grounds include a large pool, pool house, tennis courts, formal gardens and two charming guest houses that are also available to accommodate larger parties.
The estate's expansive private grounds include a swimming pool, pool house and tennis court.  The villa is surrounded by exquisite gardens, secular trees and shrubs and wonderful terraces and walkways.  There are beautiful terracotta pots, brimming with flowers, at every turn. 
The large swimming pool is situated in a sunny, quiet and protected corner of the estate.  The large pool house has its own kitchen and entertainment area where ceremonies or meetings can be arranged.  There are private shower rooms and bathrooms.  The full size tennis court is adjacent to the pool.

Daily trips to local wineries and to 5 Terre (filing boat) can be arranged, as well as pick up at the airport and transfer to best sightseeings of Tuscany (and Italy)

There are two guest houses, each with its own small kitchen, dining area and living room.  One of them has three bedrooms with a shared bath; the other has two bedrooms with a shared bath. 
The guest houses are just a few steps from the main villa and offer guests a private space of their own. 

A private Chapel refines the beauty and charm of this ancient and exclusive villa.

Rental of one or both guest houses is not part of the cost of renting the main villa and must be arranged in advance.

              Within an easy walking a pretty village, with shops, cafe-bars, restaurants is reachable (5 min) as well as the Lucca River Park (10 min) from where you can go walking or cycling through a lovely path (without cars) to the walled town of Lucca (5 Kms). Lucca is considered one of the best jewels of Tuscany and Italy. It is a medieval town completed surrounded by walls, so rich of art, history and culture and of course of top-restaurants and shops. In our own winery in the Chianti region (40 min) we organize for our guests unforgettable visits to the vineyards and wine tasting with lunch in our own restaurant. The beautiful beaches of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi are at 30 Kms. Pisa is at 20 Kms, Florence at 70 Kms, and all the most famous sightseeings of Tuscany all within a couple of hours drive. One of the most visited spot of Italy, the 5 Terre, is at 1h 30' min. A very pretty area, named Garfagnana, is at 1h drive north of the property. Its nickname is 'The Italian Switzerland' because of its green, the mountains, the many tiny villages, the lakes and the rivers. Our driver Gianni is available for pick up at Pisa or Florence airport and for daily trips with his brand new mercedes vans.
