This is a most glorious Tuscan villa built in the early 19th Century to a design by Nottolini. Its setting is faultless. In 50 acres of olive groves, vineyards and pine forests the views from all sides are magical, over a little village to rolling hills and up through a valley to the mountains beyond. Little churches & chapels perch on top of the hills nearby as in a Renaissance painting. It is difficult not to believe you have been transported back in time to a gentler, more peaceful age. The interior of the villa has been restored and modernised to an exceptionally high standard yet at the same time great care has been taken to retain the frescoes and painted ceilings that grace virtually every room. In the well-established gardens are pergolas, fountains and pathways leading to a beautiful 9m x 18m heated swimming pool and, set at the foot of an olive grove, an excellent, floodlit artificial grass tennis court. Bi-lingual staff are available to see to your every need and to advise and plan your excursions.

If you can bear to tear yourself away there are numerous fascinating and beautiful places to visit whilst staying here. Lucca, Puccini's birthplace, is a beautiful city surrounded by 16th Century bastion walls, its interior a finely spun web of medieval houses, churches and squares, including a wonderful Roman amphitheatre. It also has excellent shops and restaurants. Other places within easy reach are: Pisa 30 mins, Florence 50 mins and within one and a half hours drive are Siena, San Gimignano, The Garfagnana, Bagni di Lucca, Pistoia and Barga. Forte dei Marmi on the Versilian coast is 35 mins away. There are numerous excellent recommended restaurants in the area and the some of the finest wines of Tuscany and Chianti are produced on the doorstep. Riding in the incomparably beautiful Lucca province is available. This is an exceptional property and offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy Tuscany in style.

Price: From £29,500 per week, depending upon season and length of let.
