Just 8 km from Lucca, in an exceptionally good position on a hill, with a panorama stretching from the towers of Lucca to the town of San Miniato, lies this wonderful historic home, which has origins way back in history: it was first built as a fortified village, then in the middle ages it became a lookout tower and finally around the 15th or 16th century it became a country residence for a family that was part of the Lucca nobility. It then became a convent and during the centuries had many illustrious guests. It has been recently renovated with a painstaking work of conservation and recovery of all its original characteristics, and the result is a faithful representation of the typical Lucca villa of the 1500s, as described by Samminiati, the great intellectual and architect. They have knowledgeably re-used all the old construction materials such as stone, terracotta, hand-forged ironwork, and they have recovered the monumental fireplace, the typical loggia with its arches, columns and frescoes looking over towards the olive grove, but above all they have respected the original layout of the rooms, which are large and airy. Put together with the furnishings, which are composed of a collection of special antique pieces and many from the 1800s, some of which have come from old convents and churches, it all gives this house an original atmosphere of austerity, elegance and simplicity, capable of bringing back the rhythms of life of times gone by. In order to provide guests with complete relaxation, the villa has also been equipped with the most modern comforts: hydro massage tubs in most of the bathrooms, under-floor central heating, satellite TV, high-quality comfortable mattresses, and above all it offers a complete, personalized and detailed assistance for guests: daily cleaning and linen changes, on request the organization of many trips (tour with wine tasting, cooking courses, participation at the Viareggio carnival or at the Puccini music festival, and so on. Outside, the villa has a panoramic garden area with a pergola, furnished for relaxing and dining outside; an ancient reservoir of water that is in front of the villa, was converted into an oval swimming pool of 12x7m with a splendid view over the surrounding hills.The beaches at Versilia are about half-an-hour`s drive away.
