Immersed in the hills of one of Tuscany’s most sought after locations, this wonderful country house boasts stunning views of the verdant green landscape.  The ancient spirit of the house, whose original structure is traced back to the Carolingian period, has been preserved through able restoration works which have successfully kept the original features which blend seamlessly into more modern elements.
A true corner of paradise cradles the villa.  Two rows of cypress trees shield the property from view and lead us to the entrance of the villa which is itself surrounded by a 10 hectare park where olive trees and secular cypress trees are present, as well as a swimming pool and even a small lake.  The magnificent views can be enjoyed equally from the enchanting garden or from inside the villa itself.  The quality of the surrounding landscape and the historical importance of the property conspire to make this property truly unique in its beauty.
The country house extends for 980 m2 in total internal surface area and is organised into three large apartments.  From the front door the large entrance opens into the villa.  Two small stairways lead us to the main floor where the living room hosts the antique fireplace and a precious eighteenth century fresco bearing the family coat of arms.  From the living room we have access to the dining room and also the study and the master bedroom with private bathroom.  On the same floor the large rustic kitchen is found which is also connected to the living room by another door.  On the last floor three large and spacious bedrooms are located making great use of the spacious environment, as well as another master bedroom with private en-suite marble bathroom  Further down the hallway we come to the living area composed of living area, dining room and large kitchen.  The house is furnished with elegance, in perfect harmony with the rustic style.  The ceilings are composed of heavy wooden beams which have been fully restored.
To the side of the main villa a small 350m2 annex is located, this too perfectly restored and composed of a living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen and three bedrooms and the same number of bathrooms.  A small distance away, above the country house, a small chapel is located of roughly 90m2, recently renovated and transformed into an additional apartment containing a living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

Tuscany Lucca

Born as a Ligurian settlement and developed as a Roman city, in the VI century Lucca became capital of the Longobard Duke of Tuscia, to then grow during the XII century to become a commune and successively into a Republic. In medieval times the city grew notably in relation to the ancient Via Francigena which became important for the presence of the Volto Santo, a highly venerated relic representing the crucifix of Christ, today found in the Duomo  of Lucca. In spite of the ups and downs of the battles between the Guelfi and Ghibellini fractions, Lucca became one of the most important cities in medieval Italy.  Its Lord, Castruccio Castracani of the Antelminelli noble family, managed to make it the only antagonist to the expansion of Florence, taking it to victory in 1325 in the battle of Altopascio.  On the death of Castruccio, the city fell into a period of anarchy succumbing to the Visconti and successively to the dictator Giovanni Dell’Angelo, ducale of Pisa.  Regaining its freedom, intervention of the Emperor Carlo IV, Lucca once again  found great fame in Europe thanks to its bankers and commerce in silk. Excluding a brief period of Seignory authority, like that of Paolo Guinigi, Lucca remained an independent republic right up until 1799, the year in which it fell definitively to the Austrians.  In 1805 the Principality of Lucca and Piombino was formed, assigned to the sister of Napoleone Bonapart, Elisa, and to her husband, Felice Baciocchi.  In 1860 the city was finally joined to the realm of Italy.
Today one of the main Italian cities of art, Lucca is also celebrated outside of its national confines above all for its unique walls that surround it, dating to the XV-XVII century; transformed in the second part of the nineteenth century into a pleasant walkway, resulting still today as one of the best conserved in Europe, in that in past centuries it was never used as a defensive barrier.  Even the historic centre is still intact conserving its original appearance, with various exclusive and prestigious architectural elements.
The city boasts striking urban spaces: the most celebrated is surely that of Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, constructed on the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheatre and work of the architect Lorenzo Nottolini, a unique of its kind.  Main vein of the historic city centre is the narrow and characteristic Via Fillungo, of medieval origin, it unites the main commercial enterprises of the city.  Recently a proposal was forwarded to include the historic centre of Lucca in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
