Property 10761 – Lucca - Tuscany
6 Bedrooms – Pool
Location and Surrounding Area. The idyllic Property 10761 is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty just outside Lucca and offers far-reaching views across the city and surrounding countryside. Lucca has often been voted one of the world's most desirable cities to live in or visit and is only a ten-minute drive from Property 10761. Lucca is perhaps most famous for its thick, 16th century ramparts which encircle the city and were restored in the 19th century to create a wide, tree-lined walkway. You can walk or cycle on top of the whole length of the walls and discover the wonders of the town within. There are little cobbled streets, ancient piazzas, gorgeous churches, glorious renaissance buildings, markets and countless local restaurants, bars and trattorias. Lucca was the birthplace of the Italian opera maestro, Giacomo Puccini and the town often hosts international opera as well as classical music events and rock concerts.
Florence is the capital city of Tuscany and an art-lover's paradise. It was the centre of the Italian Renaissance movement and the museums, galleries, palaces and churches house some of the world's greatest artistic treasures. The cathedral, baptistry, Uffizi, Bargello, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens and the Accademia have to been seen and once you tire of art and history, take a wander through the pretty streets and across the Ponte Vecchio bridge which spans the River Arno. Florence is also home to designer shopping and fine wine and dining experiences. Thick, juicy Florentine steaks are a local speciality and best accompanied by a delicious Chianti wine.
Property 10761 is ideally located to explore some of the most scenic parts of Tuscany. Lucca is only a ten minute drive away, Pisa 15 minutes and Florence 45 minutes. The stunning Cinque Terre area is about 40 minutes from the villa and Siena and San Gimignano just over an hour away. The international airports of Pisa and Florence are about 30 km and 80 km away respectively.
