Formerly a private olive press for a wealthy Italian family in the 16th century, this villa is full of historical allure and surrounded by terraced olive groves with stunning views of the valley below and Lucca's medieval towers. Fully restored yet retaining much of its historic allure, this villa is ideal for those seeking to enjoy a relaxed Tuscan break within easy reach of must-see cities including Lucca, Florence and Siena. The floodlit, spacious pool backs on to this striking red-earth coloured villa, bordered by sun loungers which mirror the avenue of trees behind them. From the pool, guests can enjoy fantastic views of the valley and Tuscan countryside, as from the al fresco dining and barbecue area. Fresh blooms and manicured lawns entice guests to spend many a day in this lovely garden.
If you can be torn away from the pretty garden, indoors you will discover the perfect equilibrium of traditional Tuscan country living and modern luxury convenience: exposed wooden ceiling beams and traditional, warm prints on soft furnishings provide a comfortable interior where guests can unwind and relax. The lounge area is spacious and comfortable, while the kitchen is fully equipped and features a lovely tiled floor and large dining table seating 8, in keeping with gastronomy's position at the heart of Italian culture and family living. Each of the 4-bedroom suites is individually styled to luxury standards while maintaining a hard to capture sense of traditional charm and ambience.
