Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I am Lucia and my mother named the house after me. I am an architect and my husband Patrick is an engineer. I grew up in the village of Nozzano and studied architecture in Florence where I lived for some years. I love Tuscany because of the history, the nature and the food and I travelled around Europe I have been to the USA and Japan as a tourist. I studied English with a native speaker theacher and my brother Paolo lives in London since 1992 so I can sometimes do English practice with him.

Why the Owner Chose Lucca, Lucca, Italy:
My grandmother Anna more than 40 years ago took a walk with here husband on Nozzano's hills and fell in love with a field full of olive trees. They bought that land and the builted a very big house. My mother Marta inherited the villa but decided to live in her husband's family house down in the village. More than 10 years ago she started renting the house to people from all over the world throught an agency and she had great satisfaction because guests love this place almost as Anna did. I am Lucia and I do also love this place because it is so peaceful that really can rest your soul. So I decide to live in an indipendent part of the house that has its own entrance and garden so that we do not bother or even see the guests of the Villa. We would like to take care of the people who choose Villa Lucia for their holidays because we would like to make them discover the beauty of this places, the history of this lands and the food traditions that Lucca has. My brother Paolo moved to London for work and now lives there with his swedish wife Catarina but they both dream about coming back here when they retired.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I think that Villa Lucia is a unique place because was builted with the purpose of enjoying the countryside in which it stands. You'll love the amazing views, you'll fell the contact with nature and you'll enjoy the beauty of lands full of history. You can ask also the owner for anything you need, or if you want to taste great Tuscan food, typical cheese and wine, homemade Limoncello, if you want to buy handmade ceramics, go on guided hiking, have yoga at the Villa ....and many many other things.
