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, fruit trees 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.

Essential Information

Having a barbecue in Italy is one of the best ways to cook your food but you may find that due to long drought periods in high season barbecuing may be restricted in some areas. You will be informed if this happens by your house staff or local representative.
