About the villa

Secluded in the countryside just 11km from Pistoia, this pretty yellow house is striking from the get-go. Surrounded by olive groves and delicate rose gardens, this is a retreat that's been made for complete privacy. The large outdoor swimming pool welcomes lazy days, with loungers, furnished patios and oversized umbrellas, while inside, the villa indulges with a classic country-chic character. Through the spacious main entrance hall, the large open-plan lounge is a relaxation haven, furnished with sink-worthy sofas and intricately patterned rugs. Both simple yet sophisticated, some of the room's eye-catching furnishings include an old wooden piano and the standout corner fireplace. Through the lounge, an adjoining dining area has sliding glass doors that lead out to a charming terrace overlooking lovely country views. Continue to the spacious high-spec kitchen - equipped with all the essential mod cons -  and there's a second cosy sitting area with armchairs and a smaller fireplace. Following the same rustic-chic style, each of the bedrooms has a simple design, with subtle pastel-coloured walls and exposed wooden beam ceilings.

About the area

Lucca, Pisa & Lunigiana

Average weather

Although they are only 17km apart, Pisa and Lucca instantly feel like different worlds. The former is a lively student city on the River Arno, and has one of the world’s most recognizable monuments: the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Understated Lucca is compact and genteel, ideal for a Tuscany villa nearby, with handsome piazzas that frame churches in the Luccan-Romanesque style. Those on a Lunigiana holiday occupy the Apennine foothills in far north-western Tuscany. It is rolling, blissfully empty terrain whose few inhabitants have cultural links with neighbouring Liguria.
