Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 11
Between Pisa and Lucca, in the heart of Tuscany, this villa is an exquisite luxury villa built in the 17th century and filled with beautiful, very comfortable furnishings. A dream swimming pool is surrounded by a sensational green set made of hills, mounts and expansive private gardens meticulously looked after and garnished with olive tree groves. The Villa is available from 22d June to 21st September only, as the owner lives there in winter, maintaining it in perfect conditions. This 5 star luxuries house is designed to live in comfort and gracious elegance; privacy is a major feature here, even if that doesnt mean isolation from the many touristic attractions like Lucca historical centre (only 10 minute from the Villa) or like the famous Versilian beaches (only half an hour from there). Household Amenities: In the kitchen you will find two electric wall ovens, gas stove with 8 burners, two fridges, a freezer, two toasters, a coffee machine, a dishwasher, a microwave, a blender and kitchenware for about 20 people. The Villa is also equipped with a laundry room with washer, iron and board. Every bath has its air-dryer. The televisions have satellite and SKY license. There are screens on many of the windows and mosquito nets in the master bedroom and in the Library/sitting-room. Continental breakfast every morning (from 8,00 to 10,00) and daily housekeeping services are included (with the exception of half Sunday and Wednesday all day). The domestic staff, besides cleaning the house, can also prepare you lunch or dinner. The day of your arrival a welcome meal will be prepared for you. Outside Features: There is an outside dining table convenient to the kitchen. In front of the house you will find an enormous garden (about 10.000 sqmt) with a gazebo midway to the pool. The pool measures 46 x 20 (depth about 2 ft open from 22 June to 21 September) and is perfectly situated to offer a sunny side and a shady side. Also at poolside are sun beds, tables, umbrellas and a bathing-hut with a shower (where hot water is directly generated from solar energy). The pool is treated with very low percentages of chlorine. Many terracotta pots full of flowers decorate the landscape and there is a sensational mountain set behind the garden with beautiful olive tree groves. Private parking is available for many cars. 4 km to tennis court. 3 Golf courses at 40 minutes in Montecatini, Forte dei Marmi, Tirrenia (Pisa). Other Features: Please note that the housekeeper has an apartment on the lowest level of this house. Also behind the electric gates there are two other buildings. The first one belongs to a relative who seldom visits the house and the second house, which is actually nearer the main house, has always been used for lemon tree storage and as a cantina for the wine. Location/Where to go: The Villa is distant only 10 minutes from Pisa and 5 minutes from Lucca and from the motorways entrance which leads to Florence (75 kms), to the Versilian Coast (20 km to Viareggio beach, 28 km to Forte dei Marmi) and to many other important Tuscan cities.
