Virtual Viewing of the week: Lucca, Tuscany, Italy

If you’re looking for rustic Italian living in the hills of the Tuscan countryside, then this week’s virtual viewing is for you – one of the first buildings to be built on the hillside, this 15th century villa offers the best views in the area and a true taste of la dolce vita

Set on the hills dividing Lucca from the Versilia coast, this stunning estate offers incredible views over the Tyrrhenian sea on one side, and the renowned Tuscan countryside on the other. The estate includes a 15th century villa, three exquisite cottages, two swimming pools and approx 42 acres of land, including an olive grove with around 800 olive trees.

This villa was one of the first built on this hill overlooking the coast, and it is currently divided into four units but could be easily reconnected as a whole. The property is laid out over two floors, plus the basement, and includes seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The villa also boasts an independent apartment used as staff quarters with three bedrooms and one bathroom.
