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.
The magnificent villa has recently undergone complete restoration to the highest standard, with hand painted frescoes and bespoke furniture and fabrics.
There is a dining room seating up to 40 people, a fully equipped chefs kitchen, 2 salons, 6 beautiful bedrooms sleeping up to 12 people, and a first class spa.
