In a magnificent part of Tuscany, the surrounding areas of the city of Lucca, with its hillsides of olive groves, vineyards and acacia woods, is the setting of Villa Mori.
With its beautiful private pool Villa Mori and its farmhouse podere Mori stands in a park of almost 8,000 square metres, completely enclosed by ancient surrounding walls.
The Villa dates back to the 15th century. The farmhouse Rosa was perhaps built as a hunting lodge. At the end of the 1700s the main villa was bought by a well-known family of merchants from Lucca, the Moris, after whom the Villa was named.
There are 5 restored separate apartments in the farmhouse Rosa at Villa Morri. The apartments are rented together for a group of people numbering up to 23.
In 3 of the apartments there is a superb large living room with dining area and fully equipped kitchen, 2 large double / twin bedrooms, or 2 luxury bathrooms, and a bed settee. In the other 2 apartments there is a living room with dining kitchen area, a large double or twin bedroom, and 1 or 2 bathrooms. There is a shaded terrace for convenient al fresco eating, and a great BBQ area.
Villa Mori offers its guests a fantastic pool that is the only one of its kind (16x9 metres, max depth 1.5 metres). The pool has a slipway, with the water being constantly filtered by a technique which avoids the use of chlorine. There is a hydro massage area with seating so that even small children can use it. The surrounding lawn has sun beds for relaxing in the sun.
Fo weddings and very special occasions's also possible to rent the main Villa Mori exclusively with the farmhouse apartments. Villa Mori has been beautifully restored with hand painted frescoes and bespoke furniture and fabrics. There are 6 bedrooms sleeping up to 12. Contact Friends of Tuscany for more information.
