Villa Serena, built in 1700, is surrounded by over 7 hectares of woodland and olive-groves. It is situated at a height of 250 meters above sea level, on the last western slopes of Mount Albano in the Valdinievole territory between Pistoia and Lucca. This area offers all the natural and artistic beauties that distinguish the region of Tuscany but has not yet been swamped by mass tourism. The Villa has recently been elegantly and meticulously renovated exclusively using materials salvaged locally and in compliance with the rules of bio-architecture. The result is this very special refuge, with a sophisticated yet friendly atmosphere, where a surprising amount of attention has been paid to detail revealing the owners’ love for antique objects and furniture that bring the past and present closer together: period doors, antique prints, Persian carpets, 16th century fireplaces and painted terracotta are perfectly balanced with all the comforts of a modern home – air conditioning in every room, mosquito screens on the windows, comfortable Waterlily patented mattresses, bio-switches, whirlpool bathtubs and showers, Wi-Fi internet connection, satellite TV and an alarm system. The outdoor areas and garden, decorated with ancient capitals, statues and antique terracotta pitchers, offer a splendid 360° view of the surrounding hills and woods, with open terraces, 2 large porticoes furnished for eating “al fresco”, areas for sitting outside and savoring the scenery and, most importantly, a sunken swimming pool (16 x 8 m) with salt water chlorination and a whirlpool area for 8 people with double jets (from below and from the sides), counter current swimming and night lighting, situated on a natural terrace offering unforgettable views. Villa Anna (see website) is 30 meters away – the outdoor area is immediately opposite – and belongs to the same owners. Villa Anna has an independent entrance and garden and is also rented to foreign guests (the 2 villas can be rented together).
