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 at Villa Morri. The apartments are rented together for a group of people numbering up to 25.

In each apartment there is a superb large living room with dining area and fully equipped kitchen, large double/twin bedrooms, luxury bathrooms, and a bed settee. 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.

Further details indoors

This villa complex is perfect for a large family group or group of friends who want to be together but have access to more easily managed, independent living accommodation affording privacy within a large shared house, private garden and pool.

Four of the five apartments are in the 17th century farmhouse of the old villa. Each apartment has lovely modern bathrooms, and some of the double bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom. The other apartment is separate, next to the pool 25 metres from the main farmhouse. It has its own shaded terrace. Each apartment has air conditioning for particularly hot weather, and central heating for colder spells.

Lucca

Lucca was the home of Puccini, and an opera is performed every single day of the year. There are a number of other festivals, notably the Lucca Summer Festival, which has several concerts throughout July and August, and has hosted Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Sting and Lauryn Hill among many others.

The famous outdoor Puccini festival is also held throughout July and August at nearby Torre del Lago. Lucca is around one hour from Florence and 20 minutes from Pisa by train or car.

"A little piece of Heaven on Earth"

There are so many wonderful things to say about our trip here I don't know where to start. The location was fabulous - we had the tranquility of Tuscany coupled with a short trip into Lucca - possiblity one of the most picturesque cities I've ever seen.

The set up of the apartments meant that within the villa we each had privacy but were together as a group often for dining or relaxing by the beautiful pool.

The setting was simply stunning and the villa itself was tastefully decorated, met all our requirements (including internet access) and I would definitely recommend the local restaurants within walking distance.

Thanks for taking the time to review Villa Mori. It's luxurious and relaxing, and it is so close to Lucca that this villa offers the best of both worlds, the rural ideal of Tuscany but within walking distance of a beautiful "art" city, and Lucca is certainly one of the best.
