What makes this Villa unique
Lets start with the villa being awarded as one of the most ecological and exceptional homes in Italy by TV channel 'National Geographic' You Villa is built into a hill made of white marble. Its particular window shutters made of iron provide shade in the summer and catch the light deeply in winter, while the convertible roof opens at 30° like the wings of a butterfly to reveal star-studded skies on those warm midsummer nights. Then there's the pool, 26 meters long with an area of 70 square meters with a unique overflow design. The pool includes an area of 16 meters for doing laps, an additional section for recreational activities and a separate hydro massage area. From every angle of the pool as well as from its terrace you can enjoy a breathtaking aerial view of the city centre of Lucca. Accenting both the interior and exterior of the Villa are sculptures from Donia Maaoui. One of many creations is the main floor of the Villa which is organized around a spectacular spiral staircase resembling a long evening gown.
