Villa
The villa, built in the 1870's, sits on top of a hill overlooking green fields and vineyards towards the south and west. On a property of about five acres, the garden offers complete privacy, and a variety of walks and quiet places. Only ten minutes from the center of Lucca, the surroundings are open farmland, with a church on a higher hill and farms and villas to dot the landscape. The area offers the best of what Tuscany is known and loved for: an unforgettable countryside, a beautiful medieval town full of art and precious boutiques, Summer festivals with opera and concerts, wines to forget oneself in, and of course renowned and unknown restaurants that will give great pleasure to those who appreciate the simple flavors of Tuscan cuisine. The villa is uniquely located in the only area ...The villa, built in the 1870's, sits on top of a hill overlooking green fields and vineyards towards the south and west.

The villa is uniquely located in the only area close to Lucca which has been protected and has remained completely rural, even though it is only 5 km from the center of town. You can drive into Lucca's Renaissance fortifications within seven minutes, and you can ride your bicycle there in about 15 minutes. Bell'Estate has four large bedrooms and three full bathrooms on the bedroom floor, and a large living room , dining room, breakfast room , study and eat-in kitchen on the ground floor. The ample common spaces, the fireplaces, and the cozy furniture make it ideal for family gatherings in all seasons, while the luxurious 25m (82') pool makes it a real pleasure in the summer months.

About the neighborhood
Lucca has everything to offer, from museums to theater, opera, cinemas, elegant boutiques, gourmet shops, restaurants, wine stores, supermarkets, cafes, and an important antiques market once a month. From Lucca It is extremely easy to reach the beaches of Viareggio, as well as the Apennine mountains for hiking trips and winter skiing. Florence, with all it has to offer, is only 45 minutes away by car. The airport of Pisa (PSA) is reachable in half an hour.
Getting around
It's very easy to rent bicycles at a place called Poli, just inside the walls. The Lucca train station is only about 12 minutes by car from the house. A train will take you to the center of Florence in 1:15 min, and you'll have no hassles for parking in Florence!
