Property description

Set in wooded seclusion in a very peaceful and panoramic position at only 13 kilometers from the historic walled town of Lucca and the sandy beaches of the Versilia coast, this charming home VILLA LOPPY, dated back 1603, commands magnificent views of the nearby hillsides and valley

The property has been sensitively converted, resulting in a combination of comfort and traditional Tuscan convenience, retaining the original beamed ceilings and using antique cotto floor tiles.

A striking feature of the property is the antique fortified garden which enclose the pool and a bastion with a dome of jasmine plants beautifully integrated into the sloping olive groves and woods. The lovely patio ideal for ‘al fresco’ dining. The are several dining areas in the garden. Our gardener cleans the garden and the pool every day.

The house, approx. 350 sqm large, consists of two floors:

GROUND FLOOR Entrance into a triple living room with french windows overlooking the garden and the pool, dining room opening onto a patio with dining facilities and table and chairs, ideal for al fresco dining, fully equipped kitchen, 1 double bedroom with king size bed, 1 bathroom with built-in shower.

FIRST FLOOR: 4 double bedrooms (2 with king size bed and 2 with 2 twin beds each), 1 bathroom with grand built-in shower.

In the garden there is also another little house with a huge living room with cycler, tapis roulant and pool table.

We only rent the whole property to 1 party per time so privacy is never compromised

VIAREGGIO and FORTE DEI MARMI

Car: Necessary

Lucca, beautiful city, famous for its monumental 15th century fortified wall. But dig a little deeper and you find that its winding medieval streets actually follow the plan laid out by the Romans in 180BC. And before the Romans, Lucca was one of the major centres of Etruria, the ancient country of central Italy that more or less corresponds to modern Tuscany. Unsurprisingly then, Lucca is steeped in history. Your twelfth century building is just a small part of that. There are museums and churches, and the magnificent cathedral, the Duomo di San Martino, is the town’s finest Romanesque building, its impressive façade a triumph of sculpture, carving and inlay work – at just five minutes’ walk from the apartment. Modern delights include terrific restaurants, bars and shops, all within a few minutes’ walk. In Lucca’s winding streets, the pedestrian comes before the car, so you can move at your own pace. In fact wandering the streets is one of the great pleasures of the city.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city. My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.
