Villa Proserpina is a beautiful period villa, once the manor house of the charming village of Filettole located between the two beautiful cities of Lucca and Pisa, 20 minutes from the white Mediterranean beaches. The 300 year old villa has just been restored and converted into a luxury home with a stunning infinity-edge swimming pool finished in travertino marble that can be heated. There is a beautifully appointed poolside WC and shower room that is accessed via steps down from the pool terrace. The large travertino marble pool terrace is set on the upper level of the garden that leads into a terraced hillside garden with a charming olive grove. At the lower level there is the classical Italian garden with two fountains that leads through the villa’s gates into the village. There is a large loggia by the pool with a shaded dining table and an outdoor seating area ideal for relaxing in the warm Tuscan sun and a small bridge that carries you into the first floor of the villa. There are many sitting and living rooms and the bedrooms are spacious with high ceilings and all have air conditioning, the master bedroom’s large bathroom is fitted with white statuary marble with a separate bath and shower. You can have breakfast up by the pool or down in the Italian garden and the views from the terrace are of the village and of the hills. It’s rare to find a villa where you have the best of both worlds, village life and the privacy that a villa gives you with such a stunning swimming pool. The white beaches around Pisa are about 20 minutes away, Lucca is about 10 minutes away and Pisa with its leaning tower is again about 30 minutes way.
