About the villa
Multi-folding hills, softened with forestry, form giant cushions of calm around this historic house, punctuated here and there with tiny hamlets and terraced vineyard slopes. Pretty, private gardens surround it, scented with herbs and banks of flowers, and following the lie of the land with lawned paths and little stone stairways. And the villa itself is a wonderfully sympathetic restoration of a sturdy former farmhouse and its equally ancient barn, which now forms a very comfortable poolside Guest House. In the main building, the kitchen opens on to a dining terrace, and light streams into a spacious, sunny sitting room with country furniture, colourful kilims and a dining area. Three bedrooms on the first floor include the master double, with an en suite walk-in shower inlaid with pebbles. With its own breakfast room /kitchenette, and sitting room with a piano, the guest annexe houses two additional bedrooms and opens onto a lounging and dining area beside the swimming pool. Local shops at San Martino in Freddana are within 4km of the villa, Lucca’s fine restaurants are just 13km away, and the nearest beach is a mere 20km drive.

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.
