About the villa
With an olive grove in the garden, an original bread oven now in use for pizzas, and a tall-arched loggia furnished with cushioned rattan, this is the archetypal Tuscan villa. In its courtyard, flowers climb the mellowed walls and spill from terracotta planters. On a broad sun terrace, loungers are placed to enjoy the views of thickly forested hills. Sheltered under pergola shade, a furnished terrace makes a lovely spot for al fresco lunch, and in a very private setting, screened by mature shrubbery, a twelve metre pool is sunk into a lawned surround.Outdoor living is very attractively catered for, and indoor comfort is equally inviting. On the ground floor, a spacious sitting room and dining kitchen each open out to the garden, while a second sitting room, on the first floor, accesses the sunny lawns via an external staircase. Four bedrooms share this upper level and, throughout the house, big, bold, modern artworks are juxtaposed with comfy sofas, traditional rugs and intriguing antique pieces. Just 5km from local shops, this warmly welcoming villa is 20km from a great golf course, and within 40km of Pisa, Lucca and the coast.

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.
