Description(Reference number: 77820)
In the Tuscan hills, this historic villa and its sprawling grounds look out over rolling greenery. In fact, the villa was once owned by a noble family from Lucca, and its opulent history is still evident in the home's period features. However, it's been brought up to date, and now has a swimming pool and lounge set in the garden, along with modern amenities in the kitchen, including a dishwasher. Admire the original beamed ceilings on the ground floor, and unwind in the elegant living room in front of the fireplace. Upstairs, antique furnishings adorn the bedrooms, and windows look out over the beautiful gardens. In fact, we think the gardens are where you'll spend most of your time, either relaxing with a drink under the shade of the olive trees or swimming in the pool. The tree-lined roads surrounding the property are the perfect place for a morning run, and it's not far to the local village, where you can enjoy a meal in the medieval square. There's so much more to explore a short drive away, too – venture to the coast and relax on the beach at Viareggio, or wander the Renaissance-era city walls of Lucca. In the evening, we can't think of anything better than lighting candles in the garden and enjoying a barbecue with a glass of local wine.
*This home's owner lives in a detached attic of the villa which has its own entrance and staircase, and you'll have sole use of the garden
*Remember to bring shampoo with you, as there isn't any provided at the home
*We recommend having a car as this home is in a rural location
