This villa faces Lucca's historic walls, putting you in a prime spot to explore. Shops, restaurants, landmarks – you name it, it's an easy stroll away. When you're not out and about, we reckon you'll spend all your time in the sun-kissed garden. There's a swimming pool open during the summer, a terrace ideal for alfresco dining, and many spots to unwind with a glass of wine. Inside, there's even more space for group gatherings – be it billiards tournaments in the games room, sing-alongs around the piano in the second sitting area, or preparing Tuscan specialities in the bright kitchen.
