The Villa Matraia and the “Borgo” are surrounded by lovely, well maintained open spaces, similar to those you would find in an estate belonging to a prestigious ancient palazzo or villa. The Estate has a wonderful panoramic outdoor swimming pool and patio area built on a natural terrace on the hillside, and since it faces south, the area is bathed in sunlight all day long.

The Estate has been carefully renovated and restored in keeping with the rustic Tuscan style of that area and has been designed around a small square that leads to all of the apartment buildings – each one uniquely located, designed and furnished. The Villa Matraia, however, is located on one side of the Borgo and is set right in the heart of an ancient and prestigious parkland.

The Villa is a unique example of 16th Century architecture and thanks to a very careful restoration over the last few years, the Villa has been restored to its former glory and still retains its original Tuscan character and charm. The Villa’s former annexes have also been converted into several delightful farmhouse style apartments.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is considered one of the most beautiful regions in Italy with stunning scenery, outstanding food and beautiful cities full of art, history and architecture and for that reason many Tuscan towns have become UNESCO protected sites: the main square in Florence, Siena, the Piazza dei Miracoli at Pisa, San Gimignano, the historical centre of Pienza and also the Val d'Orcia. Tuscany is also considered the birthplace of the Renaissance and is also the birthplace of many famous Italian artists, painters, sculptors, musicians such Dante Alighieri ("the father of the Italian language"), Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei and Botticelli and that’s to name just a few.

The gently rolling Tuscan hills are lined with cypress trees and bathed in vineyards and olive groves which leave everyone who comes here with very special memories indeed. Tuscany has so many attractions and towns worth visiting that you would need to spend months to really appreciate everything there is to see and do here.

We recommend guests to visit Pisa with its leaning tower, Livorno and the Maremma coast for its spectacular beaches and landscape, Siena with its Piazza del Campo, Volterra and San Gimignano, smaller medieval villages but with lots of character and famous for its original medieval towers, Certaldo, the birthplace of Boccaccio and also Montecatini with its renowned spa offering curative waters and beauty treatments.

As you can see Tuscany has so much to offer no matter what your likes, hobbies and interest. For those who enjoy walking, biking and horse riding the options are endless. Other attractions include skiing at the Abetone ski resort which is just an hour and a half away from Florence, and the widely acclaimed Tyrrhenean beaches (between Viareggio, Pisa, Livorno and Grossetto) just over an hour away.

Last but not least is the Chianti. Nestled between the towns of Siena and Florence the Chianti region has become famous on an international level for its stunning hilly landscape covered in vineyards, cypress trees, hilltop hamlets and winding roads, and breathtaking vistas. A visit to Chianti gives access to an endless source to culture, architecture, scenery and many other attractions. Chianti is also internationally well known for its wine, Il Chianti Classico, olive oil and exceptional cuisine. Visiting the Chianti is a must for anyone coming to Italy! When in the Chianti land stop at Greve in Chianti, buy your local wine and stop off for a pannini at “Da Emilio” – the best sandwich/delicatessen store ever known to exist. When at Panzano in Chianti visit the famous macellaio – butcher “Dario Cecchini”. He also has a restaurant open for lunch and dinner ( Great steaks, meat anything you want. The meat he uses comes from animals specifically raised for him alone).

Furthermore, just 40 minutes from Florence you will find the Mall shopping outlet - a gallery of the world’s most exclusive designers available at bargain prices offering customers a very unique shopping experience.


Villa Matraiai and the historic hamlet Borgo of Matraia are located in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, just on the outskirts of Lucca. They are ideally situated to provide easy access to a considerable range of services (transport, shops) and tourist attractions in the area: including the enchanting medieval walled city of Lucca (15 minutes by car), PisaAirport (1 hour by train/car), FlorenceAirport (1 hour by car/train), the sandy beaches along the nearby coast of Versilia in just 35 minutes and the beautiful historical cities of Florence in 1 hour and Rome and Milan in about 3 hours.

Due to its strategic position on the peak of a valley, the entire estate offers guests wonderful views over the surrounding hills and valleys of Capannori and Lucca, creating an immediate feeling of space, tranquillity and relaxation….

The Villa and its Borgo provide a very special and unique way to spend an unforgettable and relaxing holiday in beautiful historic rental apartments in the heart of Tuscany.
