This beautiful country house has been meticulously restored and brought back to life after a long and painstaking restoration achieved over a number of years by very caring owners. New to the rental market in 2014, it is a very welcoming and charming place.
Each room in the villa is comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated in beautiful colors and really great fabrics. The living room is large with a few separate seating areas. The TV/game room is a wonderful space, a few steps up from the living room. It features a large screen TV and plenty of seating. There is WiFi in all areas of the house.
Throughout the villa, there are surprising little areas for reading, writing, daydreaming or just enjoying a little quiet time. The same holds true for the outside areas, beautifully maintained and offering many different ways to experience the remarkable views that the Villa commands over the Lucca valley.
The dining room has a great table and easily accommodates eight in a cozy setting which features an exact restoration of the antique fireplace. There are double doors leading out to a covered terrace which also has a dining table and chairs (and a wonderful view as an added bonus). The kitchen maintains its rustic charm but is fully equipped with all conveniences (stove, oven, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, etc.) as well as a full complement of dining and serving pieces. There is a utility room off the kitchen with washer, drying racks, cleaning implements, iron and ironing board. This floor also contains a full bath with shower.
The second floor of the Villa houses all four bedrooms, making them ever so peaceful and private. The master bedroom has its own bath. It's a large corner room with great views over the property.
The other three bedrooms on this floor are each uniquely decorated with beautiful colors and fabrics, antique armoires, dressers and writing tables, and comfy upholstered chairs.
The 'green room' has a double bed and views out onto the Lucca valley. The very large, light and airy hall bathroom is shared by the three bedrooms. It has a double sink, toilet, bidet, and large soaking tub.
The Villa is located in a tranqil and picturesque area of Tuscany, just 5 Kms northwest of Lucca. The outdoor areas are very well maintained with an abundance of flowers, fruit trees, shrubs and shaded areas for relaxing. A lovely swimming pool (10x5 mt) is located in the middle of the olive grove, with many shady and natural areas, with stunning views on the rolling slopes all around.
The Villa is in a great position for seeing other parts of Tuscany. The walled city of Lucca is about 10 minutes away by car, Florence about one hour, Pisa airport and the Tuscan shore about a half hour. Lucca has train and bus stations, both with regular service to many points within Tuscany and beyond.
