This is a stunning 6 bedroom property situated on the hills just a few kilometres outside Lucca and enjoying wonderful views over the Apuane Alps. Set upon a hillside divided into various terraces, the villa exterior is just as beautiful as the interior, with plenty of space to relax and a private pool and gardens to enjoy.
Inside, the style is a fusion of modern and antique, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Guests can enjoy the quality of antique artworks and paintings. All the rooms are spacious with high ceilings and original wooden beams. The floors have original red terracotta tiles throughout. On the ground floor is a sitting area with fireplace. This leads out to a large loggia with both sitting and dining areas. In fact, an arbor covered with climbing plants runs all the way around the house, guaranteeing shade throughout the day. Also on the ground floor is a well equipped kitchen which has a glass door leading to the garden as well as a laundry room and WC. The kitchen is modern and functional with stainless steel appliances. It is equipped with everything a keen chef should need. There is a second sitting area on the first floor, again equipped with a fireplace. There are also 5 bedrooms on this floor. The first two are twin bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms with bath. The third bedroom on this floor also has twin beds but the ensuite bathroom has a shower. There are then two double bedrooms on this floor. These rooms share a bathroom with shower. Another flight of stairs leads to the second floor. This is home to a large master bedroom. This is beautifully furnished in neutral tones, all aimed at helping guests to enjoy a good nights sleep. It boasts a large bathroom with both shower and jacuzzi bath. There is also a studio area with double sofa bed and fireplace. All the bedroom windows are fitted with mosquito screens and the property enjoys air conditioning throughout. The hill on which the villa stands is divided into a number of different terraced areas. The villa is positioned on the first of these. The villa has been built in a typical Tuscan style. The second terrace is then home to the swimming pool which looks across the vast valley below. The pool measures 14m x 7m and is surrounded by loungers. There is a gazebo providing shade as well as a changing room fully equipped with bathroom, shower, fridge (ideal for keeping those drinks cool!) and even two beds for those looking for a siesta out of the sun. For those that enjoy al fresco dining, there are two main areas outside where guests can enjoy a meal together or enjoy each other's company over an evening aperitif. There is both a BBQ and pizza oven for guests to enjoy. From one of the outside lounge areas, a set of external stairs go up to a green painted garden room, a welcoming and intimate refuge where you can relax, have a good coffee, practice yoga or even enjoy a spot of painting. Further on from this room, you will then arrive at a delightful panoramic terrace, under the shade of trees, where you can relax and enjoy the spectacular view of the valley reading a book and enjoying a glass of good wine.
