Villa le Cipressae
Villa Le Cipressae is an elegant 17th Century villa that has been recently restored and converted into a very comfortable private home. The villa It is set on a hill top, overlooking rolling woodland, vineyards and olive groves and is within easy reach of the medieval walled city of Lucca just nine kms or five and a half miles away. Nearby there are a number of typically quaint and easy-going villages offering small shops, restaurants and local markets.
Villa Le Cipressae faces west and, consequently, the garden and the private pool are bathed in sunshine all day long. There is a magical pergola of grapes in the smart garden, with plenty of shade for dining al fresco and relaxing during the long, sunny summer days.
The interior of the house is equally impressive with a very well equipped kitchen and a colourful and spacious dining room and sitting room on the ground floor. All the rooms on the ground floor are communicating with lots of light leading out into the garden.
On the first floor there is the master suite with a superb bathroom in keeping with style of the villa. The first and second floor also have external access, the top floor has a sitting/dining room with its own kitchenette – just perfect for a late breakfast! Additionally there is a small but well equipped gym in a converted out building in the garden. Lucca, famous for its sophisticated food, its festivals and its largely intact renaissance walls – you can enjoy a delightful walk or a cycle ride around the perimeter - is just minutes by car and, for those that like to walk, San Lorenzo and Marlia are not that far away. Of course you can also reach the coast, with the white beaches of Viareggio and Camaiore just under 40 minutes drive away.
