Photogallery

OVERVIEW


A historical period property set in a private 100-acre estate in the hills of Lucca, with swimming pool, olive groves, fresh grown vegetables, and paths and walks through the private woodlands and natural streams.

The estate includes a beautifully restored villa built in the late 15th century, with three floors, elevator, a luxury designer kitchen, 5 bedrooms and spacious bathrooms with spa facilities, and a classic Tuscan 18th century farmhouse with a game room, kitchen with open fireplace and 3 bedrooms.

 

Villa Musetta is set in a marvelous Italian garden lined by cypresses and palm trees, a unique mélange of tradition and exoticism, and the garden is surrounded by elegant boxwood hedges.

 

Beyond the olive trees, along a cypress-lined path, one reaches the high end of the garden, featuring a sweeping panorama across the Lucca valley, a 56 by 23 feet swimming pool, sunning area and Balinese massage pavilion.

Next to the pool is a covered Bali-style Summer Kitchen, where to relax sipping a glass of red wine while admiring the spectacular views, or where to enjoy a lunch in the open air served at the sandstone dining table.


There is also a kitchen area with two refrigerators and an automatic ice machine.

 

The villa is also ideal for a destination wedding and has hosted wedding parties of more than 125 guests.

 

 

THE VILLA

 

The property has been recently restored, both externally and internally, with the best in Tuscan craftsmanship and design. This was done conserving the architectural heritage while offering the most modern comforts and high-tech luxury in terms of air conditioning, wi-fi internet and satellite TV.

 

Villa Musetta is a three-storey building, with 750 square meters of livable space. On the imposing façade there are numerous doors and windows that make for a luminous interior. At the center of the façade is a grey sandstone balcony that overlooks an olive grove. The floors are connected by a large stairway, the main part of which is the original stone from the early 1500s, and also by a small elevator.

 

Ground floor

On the ground floor, which is on two levels, there is large living room with comfortable sofas and a billiard room, both with fireplaces, one of them in local pietra serena stone.

 

The spacious dining room features an arched panoramic window overlooking the Italian garden and adjoining the modern and fully equipped kitchen, with a French window leading to the inner courtyard, and a walk-in refrigerated room.

 

Beyond the kitchen area, there is a hallway and bathroom for guests.

 

Stairs and elevator to the second floor.

FARMHOUSE

 

Adjoining the villa is a 220 square meters traditional Tuscan farmhouse, or “casa colonica”, with a large courtyard featuring a fountain and an abundance of bougainvillea, jasmine and colorful hydrangea.

 

Since the villa and farmhouse each have kitchens, and both give on to the courtyard, this is perhaps everyone’s favorite relaxation area, with a comfortable outdoor lounge for cocktails and a large sandstone table that is very popular for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 

The farmhouse develops three floors.
