Casa Lucia stands in ten acres of glorious hillside olive groves overlooking the majestic Carrara Mountains. The property is made up of a large, comfortable, and luxuriously appointed house set in beautiful gardens, with a private swimming pool, an elegant open air pool house with comfortable seating, an outdoor kitchen with traditional wood-fired pizza oven and grill, and several shaded areas with ample seating and dining furniture.
The ground floor of the house features an immaculate, fully-equipped, brand new, top-of-the-range chef’s kitchen and open plan dining area, with French doors leading out to a large, spectacular stone-terraced eating area and outdoor kitchen with traditional wood-burning pizza oven and grill. The warm and inviting reception room featuring a classic open fireplace leads to a cozy study that opens out to a charming Tuscan ‘portico’; or covered terrace. A full guest bathroom and cloakroom complete the layout.
A major feature of the upstairs is the open-beamed ceilings, which add rustic charm to each of the four large, meticulously-presented double bedrooms and brand new stylishly-appointed en-suite bathrooms. The two front master bedrooms feature French doors that open out to the spectacular, uninterrupted views of the Carrara mountains. Bedroom Three has beautiful views across the swimming pool to Castello dell’Aquila – the Eagle’s Nest Castle. Bedroom Four, with two single beds and a pull-out bed overlooks the terrace, fountain and herb garden.
Casa Lucia is defined by exquisite stonework that is blended seamlessly with traditional materials such as oak, chestnut, terracotta, and local granites. Throughout the home are beautiful antiques, stylish and comfortable furniture, and finest quality linens, all of which will indulge the most discerning guest.
This luxurious home offers elegant and comfortable accommodation for eight people, with a maximum capacity for eleven, and is the perfect setting for families and friends to relax and have fun.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: The owners, Susan and Tim, live just outside San Francisco with their 18-year old daughter, for whom the property is named. Although they have traveled and lived all over the world, Tim and Susan found that it was Italy that captured their hearts and imaginations and, with the help of their friends, Simon Foster, Alessandro Penucci, Marco Cardellini, Diego and Alessandra Cecchini, and a fantastic team of builders, craftsmen, and artisans, they were able to realize their dream of creating a very special home in a very special place. They hope that any visitor to Casa Lucia will enjoy it as much as they do.
Why the Owner Chose Fivizzano MS, Italy:
When you visit Casa Lucia, you will see immediately why we fell in love with this amazing place. The views are, simply, astounding. This really is an unspoilt and undiscovered part of Tuscany. The lush green olive groves, the sunny vineyards, and the dense forests that are home to wild boar and deer are just as they must have been in medieval times. There is a sense of permanence, tradition, and peace in this extraordinary area. Away from the tourists, this part of Italy is special to us because it embraces and epitomizes a way of life that has been known for generations. Sitting on the terrace gazing at the magnificent mountains and feeling the sun on our faces, there is no place we would rather be. We think that you will feel the same!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
One of the many wonderful things about this area is that we are close to the sea and, particularly, to the spectacular Cinque Terre - the national heritage site of five gorgeous little villages built into the cliffs overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean. It's nice to take a day trip and hike along the trail and stop for lunch in a tiny little restaurant perched on a cliff. For a morning's jaunt, we particularly love to take the ferry from Lerici (just 40 minutes drive away) to Portovenere - if we're lucky we'll see a wedding taking place in the glorious church that stands high on a cliff in the Bay of Poets. And, for a special day out, we love to take out a boat, pack a picnic, and take to the sea. Coming home to the luxury and comfort of Casa Lucia is the perfect end to a perfect day.
