Description(Reference number: 77567)
With its charming cottagey furnishings and wealth of space, this villa strikes a balance between a homely retreat and a luxury holiday off the grid. Light-coloured walls, stone floors and billowing curtains create a bright and breezy feel, making indoors the perfect place to escape to when the Italian sun is beating down at midday. Echoes of its former life as a hunting lodge – built in the 1600s – are maintained by the chunky ceiling beams and vintage decorative pieces. Outside, it hits all the right notes for Tuscan countryside living – a sparkling pool surrounded by loungers, cosy chill-out nooks and a beautiful dining terrace framed by emerald-green vines. And worth a special mention is the outdoor wood-burning stove that calls out for trying your hand at making authentic Italian pizza. The expansive vistas come courtesy of the vineyards and olive groves surrounding you, with your location being the wine region of Colline Lucchesi, midway between Lucca and Capannori. Take to the road in your hired car (an essential for this area) and spend a leisurely day hopping between Tuscany’s best wineries.
