Villa Orfea - Tuscany, Italy


No matter what your ideal vacation looks like, the medieval city of Lucca and its surroundings offer so many opportunities: if you like to keep up with your workout, the city’s 16th century walls are a glorious backdrop to stroll, powerwalk, jog or cycle to; for the beach lovers the coastal strip of Versilia, reachable within 30 minute's drive, is the place to be; for the music aficionados many classical and rock/pop music festivals are held here throughout the year. That’s why Lucca is becoming one among the elite summer destinations in Tuscany. Only 10 minute drive away from the city sits Orfea, a superb luxury villa that dates back to the 15th century and now completely and painstakingly renovated to transport you to the an era of modern beauty and sublime elegance.

Many features make this property perfect for kids: the estate is gated and completely fenced, the swimming pool has a shallow side, there is a children's playground, and the nearby city of Lucca offers a wide range of things to see (and it is mostly car-free).

OUTSIDE FEATURES--extensive manicured grounds including an Italian style garden with a romantic pergola. Al fresco dining area to enjoy meals in the shades on a side of the villa. Private swimming pool with whirlpool area. High-quality lounge furniture and shades on the sun deck. A children's playground is on the premises, an ideal place to let the kids in your group run off some steam. Covered private parking area.

GROUND FLOOR--as soon as you enter the foyer you will feel the special atmosphere that permeates the villa. The neutral and earth-toned colors used in the family room, such as golden yellow and terra cotta, typical of the Tuscan style, create an airy and fresh effect. Frescoed walls, large fireplace as a focal point and a beautiful crystal chandelier set the elegant tone of this comfortable room. The very generous formal dining room has seating for up to fifty people. The room features lit china cabinets, coffered ceiling, classic art on the walls, and tall arched French doors opening onto the garden: everything works together to create the ultimate formal dining experience. The professional-grade kitchen boasts ample counter space for prepping meals, a gorgeous central stove, vaulted ceiling, large window and access to the garden. A lounge room with large flat screen satellite TV, a well-stocked library room, and a guest bathroom complete this floor.
