Owner's description:

Description: A gentleman's retreat near Lucca The countryside around Lucca is an enduring testimonial to the hedonistic lifestyle of Lucca's noble families who between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries built over three hundred patrician country residences on the gentle hillsides which surround the city. This villa landscape is famous all over the world. The elegant this property built in the 1700's with its surrounding farmhouses is the epitome of this elegant country house era. Set high in the hills twenty minutes north west of Lucca with breath-taking panoramic views on every side, was once a hunting lodge belonging to an aristocratic family. The estate, which produces some of the finest olive oil in the region, consists of the villa, a number of farmhouses and several acres of land. Life in the small hamlet where the villa is located has a fascination all its own, even attracting an American artist to set up house and his easel here. There is a small trattoria just down the road (2 km), while all around are other country villages, each with a different patron saint who is feted on a different day of the year with pageants and supper and dancing under the stars and fireworks lighting up the sky behind the next hill. This is a very fertile part of Tuscany with a patchwork of fields changing colour with the seasons, while the trees all stay the same, the dark green of the cypresses, the silvery olives and the holm oaks that never lose their leaves, all year round. Set high in the idyllic landscape of the hills north west of Lucca, this patrician country house dating back to the 1700's was once the hunting lodge of an aristocratic Lucchesian family. Elegantly spread out over two floors the villa is grouped around an imposing central drawing room on the ground floor and surrounded by an extensive and enchanting well kept garden terraced on three levels. Stone lions guard the tall villa gates and the gardens are shaded by a centuries old lime tree which is sufficiently magnificent to be famous throughout the region. The villa will be ideal for discerning groups, who appreciate high quality comfort in a secluded environment. On the ground floor, French windows lead out from the drawing room onto a terrace with tables and chairs overlooking a small walled formal garden with a view over the hills of Lucca beyond. A few steps lead down to an extensive lawned terrace and the swimming pool rimmed with borders of old roses, irises and hydrangea bushes. Lawns also lead up to the entrance of the villa framed by cypress trees, hibiscus and lemon trees in terracotta vases and the age-old spreading lime tree. The kitchen is fully equipped and there are five spacious bedrooms all of which have a splendid view. They have been decorated in an elegant country house style with pastel washed walls, wooden bedsteads, as well as paintings and other antiques belonging to the family. About the region Lucca: Twenty minutes away by car, Lucca is one of the most enchanting towns in Tuscany - strolling along the wide avenues along the top of the ancient city walls or in the narrow streets with their ninety nine churches, browsing among the old-fashioned little boutiques, sipping a cappuccino at one of the many bars, tasting the best ice-cream, visiting the richly endowed museums - is a sheer delight.
