Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

Villa Demetrio nestles in the hill s above Castelnuovo in the Garfagnana region North of Lucca, where it enjoys peace and tranquility and commands spectacular views of mountains and the village below. Set in sixty acres of forest, fields and hills, the estate consists of a farmhouse and the original major part of this medici villa dating back to the fifteen century, at once the residence of a noble family, famous for their grand life and style. The villa has been restored to the highest standard, leaving most of its original features. Driving up to the villa, or landing on it\'s own helicopter pad one passes the pool, fountain and eighteen century Grotto. Crossing the landscaped gardens, passing a terrace you enter double aspect doors into a Grand Baronian hall. Twenty eight columns and arches form a Gallery surrounding the first floor, with mellow light filtering through a frosted glass ceiling, embraced in wrought iron work. All is enhanced by a Chandelier in the center giving a feeling of sheer opulent decadence. Downstairs to the left there is a study-television room with home video and satellite television, double French doors to terrace outside, then across hall into a luxurious dining room leading to a kitchen with double French doors to the terrace. Once outside, a Gazebo encloses a table for dinner under the stars. Back across the hall and passing a small cloakroom, then up on an open staircase on to the gallery, to the left you find a laundry room and walking across into a double bedroom with the most superb large bathroom. Continue on passing double French doors to a balcony with wonderful views over the pool, grotto and garden to a smaller bedroom and shower room. At the same floor there is another small double bedroom with it\'s own shower room. Continue going up the stairs entering through double aspect glass French doors you step into a large orangerie with a terracotta divided glass floor and above the glazed roof you look into the sky. Across this you will find a double bedroom with a grand Roman style shower-room all in travertine marble. Back in the orangerie two arches lead to a big bedroom and a hallway with large picture windows and panoramic views over the garden and mountains there you will find the most exclusive roman jacuzzi bathroom all in cream travertine marble. Bedroom and the bathroom have splendid views over garden, fountain, pool and mountains. The main villa can accomodate up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms. In the same Estate just beside the villa but separated by a fence and gate there is the three apartment farmhouse \"Farmhouse Vittoria\" that can accomodate in total 12 guests so in case can be rented together with main villa for up to 20 guests.
