Immersed in the incomparably beautiful green countryside and vineyards of the area around Lucca called Vicopelago, Villa Mori and its farmhouses stand in private grounds of almost 8000 square metres, completely enclosed by ancient surrounding walls. Vicopelago is prestigious because of its many 15th and 16th century grand villas. Due to its charming landscape, Vicopelago was the area of Lucca favoured by the nobles of the time for building their country houses. Newly painstakingly restored, Villa Mori's history can be traced back to the 15th century, and in the 1800's the villa was bought by the well known merchant family Mori of Lucca, who gave it their name.
After its fabulous restoration, in the magnificent main villa there is a beautiful ballroom or dining room which can seat up to 50 people, a superbly equipped professional chefs basement kitchen, a salon, a library, a TV room with Sky TV, a lift, and 6 luxurious bedrooms with hand painted walls and ceilings. Luxurious spa facilities have also been added, including a Turkish bath, sauna, showers, a salt wall, and relaxation area.
In addition, within the farmhouse a few metres from the villa, there are 4 luxury apartments, and in the former stables near to the pool we also have a luxurious 2 bedroomed house.
Altogether 28 people can be accommodated in beds, and there are a few sofa beds in case of others. The main villa is also accesible to wheelchair users, with a lift to the higher level.
It is possible to rent either the main Villa Mori on its own, sleeping up to 12 people, without the apartments which would remain empty ensuring that the pool and all facilities are private for the use of the villa residents only.
Or the villa and the apartments are rented alltogether, sleeping up to 28 people.
The apartments in the farmhouse at Villa Mori have recently undergone restructuring in the typical Tuscan manner. All the apartments have en-suite bathrooms, modern kitchens, dining areas and lovely lounge areas.
In the front, a green lawn contrasts pleasantly with the red of the farmhouse, and relaxing moments in the open air can be enjoyed under a delightful pergola of wisteria.There is a hydro massage area with seating so that even small children can use it. The surrounding lawn has sunbeds for relaxing in the sun. Also outside there is a sheltered patio for al fresco eating and a great BBQ area.
The fantastic pool is the only one of its kind (16x9 metres, max depth 1.5 metres). The pool has a slipway, with the water being constantly filtered by a technique which avoids the use of chlorine. There is a hydro massage area with seating so that small children can use it. The surrounding lawn has sun beds for relaxing in the sun. Wi-fi is available at the poolside.
