This beautiful retreat is situated in the enchanting village of Vicopelago, close to the historic centre of Lucca. Set on 10,000 m2 of private park-like greenery and gardens, surrounded by the original stone walls, you will find this exceptional 15th century manor. Immersed in the beautiful Tuscan countryside dotted with olive groves, vineyards, and acacia woods, this area of Lucca was favored by the nobles of the time for building their country houses.
This holiday villa has been recently renovated to high standards and offers exclusive modern amenities while still maintaining its authenticity and charm. This wonderful Tuscan villa offers a peaceful and luxurious setting with exceptional private, landscaped gardens. The estate consists of the main villa with six luxurious bedrooms and, several meters away, three beautiful apartments in the red manor and a lovely additional apartment beside the pool area that was transformed from what used to be the barn. It is possible to rent the main villa on its own, sleeping up to 12 guest, and the apartments would remain empty ensuring that the pool and all facilities are private for the use of the villa guests only. Otherwise, the villa and the apartments can all be rented together, at an additional cost, sleeping up to 28 guests.
The main villa offers a traditional living plan featuring 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, a large ballroom or dining room that can seat up to 22 guests with double height glass doors that open onto the gardens, two living rooms with original stone fireplaces, a TV lounge, a study, a professionally fitted kitchen, a wine cellar, and a spa complete with a Turkish bath, sauna, cold mist shower scented with eucalyptus, an exhilarating ice fall, and a relaxation area with salt wall.
The current owners have successfully fused history and classic design with a contemporary feel, creating a wonderful unique home. The interior spaces are bright with natural light and have restored beams, pillars, and terracotta floors throughout. Hand painted frescoes adorn the ceilings and plush rugs of the highest quality cover the tiled floors. This luxury villa has numerous outdoor lounge and dining areas conveniently situated around the gardens to relax or enjoy al fresco dining, at your preference, throughout the day. The villa is elegant yet comfortable and was designed for families and entertaining in mind.
Surrounded by its beautifully landscaped gardens, the pool offers a fantastic area for fun and relaxation. The large saline pool is the only one of its kind with a slipway and a hydro massage area with seating so that even small children can use it. The location is excellent with horseback riding, golf, and tennis all nearby.

Moreover, the villa is within an hour from Florence and just 30 minutes away from Pisa and the seaside resort of Versilia.
