Description


Villa Grande Lucca

Location and Surrounding Area

Immersed in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, this magnificent eleven-bedroom villa is ideally located to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. Located in the gorgeous foothills of Capannori, this exclusive villa is the perfect location for unforgettable day trips to the most beautiful towns in Tuscany and provides a unique opportunity to admire its splendid landscapes while soaking up the region’s incredibly rich historical and cultural heritage.

The villa is just a stone’s throw from the fortified city of Lucca. Hidden behind imposing Renaissance walls, its cobbled streets, handsome piazzas and shady promenades make it a perfect destination to explore on foot. At the end of the day, historic cafes and restaurants tempt visitors to relax over a glass of Lucchesi wine and a slow progression of rustic dishes prepared with fresh produce from nearby Garfagnana. If you have a car, the hills on the east of Lucca demand exploration.

The villa is also just a few kilometers from Pisa, exceptionally well-known for its Leaning Tower. Moving between its alleys and riversides you will discover architectural jewels such as Santa Maria della Spina, the headquarters of the Scuola Normale Superiore in Piazza dei Cavalieri, the exhibitions of Palazzo Blu and the magnetic charm of Piazza dei Miracoli. Start from the Baptistery and head to the 130-meter Camposanto Monumentale overlooking the square.

The villa is also a few kilometers from the sunny seaside town of Viareggio, one of Tuscany’s largest seaside resorts, graced with an air of elegance lent mainly by the long avenue of palms that runs the length of its seafront promenade. A modest collection of Art Nouveau-style frontages adds to the sense of refinement, though for the most part the buildings are old-style seaside hotels. Its beaches are all private, except for the free stretch between Viareggio and Torre del Lago.

Immersed in the green of the Mediterranean scrub, the traditional town of Forte dei Marmi is famed for its exclusive hotels, magnificent villas, designer boutiques and luxury beach chalets. In the 1930s, the Fiat-founding Agnelli family made the town popular by buying a summer residence here, and the holiday home trade hasn’t stopped since. The maze of tree-lined streets that lead off Roma Imperiale, to the south of the historic center, hold the plushest villas and celebrity hotspots.
