About the property

Villa for 8+/10; swimming pool; views to die for; lots of outdoor living space

Delightful Tuscan villa within easy reach of Lucca, situated in the beautiful '10 castelli' region of Northern Tuscany. Beautiful uninterrupted views surround this newly architect restored house. No expense has been spared on the conversion, which features contemporary furniture contrasted with original Tuscan features. A heated swimming pool and sun terrace and extensive gardens with fruit and olive trees complete the scene.

This is a treat not to be missed.

On the ground floor are a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, a double bedroom, a shower room, laundry room, inner hall and staircase

On the first floor are master bedroom with King-size bed & ensuite bathroom, twin bedded room, double bedroom with mezzanine floor above (also with twin beds) and a family bathroom.

The kitchen is of a high standard with electric cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and water purifier. Laundry room with washing machine, iron and ironing board. Ample parking.

About Carole or Peter

We are a small family run business with architects amongst us, who have been involved in converting all our amazing properties. See more at zephen.com. This property has been lovingly restored and acts as our holiday home for several great weeks a year. We love BBQs, swimming, and cycling round Lucca.

Carole or Peter purchased this villa in 2009

Why Carole or Peter chose Pistoia Area

This area of Tuscany is special, which gives a taste of real Italy. The locals are incredibly friendly and whilst close to Pescia, Lucca and even within easy reach of Florence, the unspoilt beauty of the views, beautiful sun downers and slightly off the tourist beaten track enables you to experience genuine Tuscany.

What makes this villa unique

The tranquility, unbelievably beautiful views of the hilltop towns across the valley, modern and well fitted interiors in an original traditional building, hot days (with shade!) and cool nights, jumping in and out of the pool, fruit trees in the garden and authentic cuisine at great value country restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for an amazing holiday. We had a big birthday and three generations of family in the house-but there was something for everyone. The pool and gardens are lovely and the fruit trees bursting with rich cherries. Wonderfully equipped house too -A superb find!
