Immersed in ancient olive groves and lush Tuscan countryside, this home has spectacular views of the medieval towers of Lucca and the mountain ranges by the sea. The villa’s imposing façade exudes character from the outset, and inside you'll find the beamed ceilings, stone arches and tiled floors of days gone by. Dressed to perfection, with every detail carefully thought out, it's a stunning place to explore, with romantic bedrooms, fabulous bathrooms, a farmhouse kitchen and a pastel pink living room – all with their green-painted windows framing mountain views. Outside, stroll through the magical gardens in the mornings and relax on the panoramic veranda with your breakfast. The huge pool is lined with sun loungers for the daytime, or tuck yourself away in one of the shady spots with a good book. Spend evenings drinking local wine in the pretty outdoor lounge spaces, or head into lively Lucca for Renaissance architecture and great food – it's just a fifteen-minute drive away.
