Description(Reference number: 77944)
In a serene cul-de-sac of Cypress trees and pinewood in the heart of the Tuscan hills, this is a villa for living a life most regal. A former hunting house, this 16th century palatial home truly conquers outdoor living, with a stone carved infinity pool, stunning outdoor jacuzzi and kids pool, private tennis court, and plenty of charming eating areas that are great for dinners alfresco – it's just a fabulous mix of rural pleasures. For the interior, think low-hanging chandeliers, Renaissance arch windows, open fireplaces, and a surplus of flowers, opulent touches, and quaint neutral tones. When you’re not lying around by the pool, take a trip the medieval town of Lucca, exploring its cobblestone streets and prestigious history - just a short drive down the road. Return to your humble abode and break open a bottle on the patio, itself blooming with floral motifs and citrus trees – the perfect way to bookmark the end to a royal retreat.
*Please take extra care of younger children around the infinity pool, as it does have a considerable drop-off edge
*Towards the end of the afternoon the swimming pool doesn't get a great amount of sun, so it can go cold quickly
*We'd recommend a car for ease of exploring the area – five parking spaces are available on the driveway
*The owners live within the grounds in an independent villa
