The Villa (600 sqm; 200 sqm/floor) has parts dating back to the 17th century and parts to the 18th century when it was enlarged and refined with decorations. It is situated on the level countryside in Lucca area, with a large lovely Italian garden (about 3000 sqm) full of flowers, fruit trees, and old lemon pots. All the garden is surrounded by an old garden-wall keeping it nicely secluded from the outside world. An old vine pergola runs along two sides of the garden-wall.
This elegant villa has been in the family "for ever". In the old days it was part of a vast estate with the homes for farmers behind it. The owner is a creative lady who is still maintaining the traditional manufacturing of old lucchesi silk fabrics for house decoration. Her studio is located in the lemon-house, an annex to the villa.
It is consequently understandable the way she recently fully restored the house, equipping it with all the modern appliances, but yet maintaining the traditional charm and character of a typical period villa, with terracotta tiled floors and frescoed rooms. Antique precious furniture and refined upholstery and decoration make the villa elegant and charming, a special stay for art lovers.
