About The Experience
Once the summer home of a noble family, this elegant villa is an ideal setting for a gathering of friends or family. The chapel and spacious grounds also make it well suited for a wedding. The estate produces its own olive oil, has a private swimming pool, multiple terraces, and expansive views.
Location Description

This villa is situated on the hill overlooking the ancient spa town of Montecatini. Montecatini Terme is located at the foot of the Pistoia Mountains and began building its first spa center in 1733. Elegant, peaceful, and relaxing, Montecatini Terme now has nine spas available for services and this is in addition to a nice selection of restaurants, cafes, and markets. Nearby is a golf course. Almost every night is some type of live event in the city, ranging from art shows to musical performances. Lucca, which is nearby, has medieval charm and much to visit, including The Duomo di San Martino, the Church of San Michele in Foro, and the Casa di Puccini, where the composer was born. You can also climb the 130 foot Torre Guinigi, but on the other hand, viewing the tree-topped tower from below might be just as enjoyable… and a lot less work! The villa is conveniently located less than 10 minutes from the Montecatini Exit on the A-1 (Firenze/Mare Highway). There is a train station Montecatini Terme for day trips to Florence and Pisa.

Pisa: 45 km/28 mi
Florence: 40 km/25 mi
Lucca: 38 km/24 mi
Montecatini Terme: 8 km/5 mi
Exterior Description
(10 hectares)

Once the summer residence of a noble family of the 1800’s, this villa retains its history through some of its furnishings and traditional landscaping. Located within a working farm specializing in hand-harvested olive oil, the villa is surrounded by a charming park and has a private swimming pool (15m x 5m, late April to early October). The gardens and land feature olive trees, cultivated terraces with a barbecue and vineyards. In the park there is a consecrated chapel dating back to the 19th century.
