A 17th-century villa located in a tiny village

Splendore is an elegant 17th-century villa, located in a tiny village just outside the wonderful small Tuscan city of Lucca. Lucca is 7.5 km from the villa. The area is beloved for its varied natural settings and for the simple elegance of Lucca itself.

Villa Splendore sits the end of a lane of stately cypresses, surrounded by extensive gardens and enclosed within a stone wall. According to seventeenth century custom, the ground floor is simple and rustic, while the stately piano nobile, or noble floor, is located just above. Villa Splendore’s owner has marvelous sense of taste and a strong connection to local history, which are evident in every detail of the villa’s decor.

Professional staff will assist you during your stay. The staff is also available to arrange tours, wine tastings, cooking classes, and other activities. Splendore is walking distance from a small village where you can find a bar, few shops and a bus stop.

The nearby Lucca is one of the most enchanting towns in Tuscany - strolling along the wide avenues along the top of the ancient city walls or in the narrow streets with their ninety nine churches, browsing among the old-fashioned little boutiques, sipping a cappuccino at one of the many bars, tasting the best ice cream, visiting the richly endowed museums - is a sheer delight.

From here, all of Tuscany is within easy reach. Florence, Pisa and Siena can be easily reached on daytrips. Hike in the Cinqueterre (1.5 hours). Visit the medieval hill towns of southern Tuscany and Umbria. The elegant beaches of the Versilian Riviera are just a 30-minute drive away. There are two golf courses nearby, the 18-hole golf courses at Montecatini or Versilia (both 30 minutes).

Additional amenities: Airport distance:Pisa 20 km Florence 85 km, American coffee maker, Electric kettle, Gazebo by the pool, Hair dryer, Iron and ironing board, Parking on private ground, Piano, Pool: 6 x 12m, Private Chef, Professional stove 6 burners, Sun loungers, tables and chairs, Washing machine and dryer
