Property overview

Villa La Quercia is a noble hillside residence near Lucca, dating back to 17th century, with panoramic views, parkland, a chapel and guest accommodation. Having been painstakingly restored this Tuscan villa provides the utmost in 21st century comfort alongside wonderful original features and frescos.

In total the estate has 12 hectares of land and 3,000 sqm of floor area across the main villa, the casa colonica with its two guest apartments, the small unrestored convent, the chapel and the two floor 'tinnaia'.

The Main Villa

The villa has been restored to the highest possible standard whilst original features have been preserved and restored with meticulous detail. Throughout, there are original frescos, impressive fireplaces and stone/terracotta features.

There are two principal entrances into the main villa, one from the lower terrace into the ground floor hall and one into the first floor leading into the principal reception rooms of the property.

The villa has maintained its traditional layout with the services rooms and storage to be found on the ground floor and the piano nobile on the first floor providing grand reception rooms, a large open plan kitchen, a library and dining room. Many of these rooms have original paint and fresco work and enjoy wonderful views across the valley. Leading off the kitchen one accesses the villa's terraces and the shaded summer dining pergola.

Via the grand central stairway one accesses the second floor bedroom accommodation and three bathrooms. In total there are five bedrooms but the current layout provides three bedroom suites, each with sitting/dressing area, bedroom and bathroom.

Guest Accommodation

Adjoining the main villa are two guest apartments, each with two bedrooms. These spacious residences provide independent living with open plan living-dining areas and contemporary style interiors.

Grounds and Land

In total there are 12 hectares of land accompanying the villa. The land includes olive groves, vegetable and flower gardens, mature fruit orchards, parkland and south facing vineyards (currently unused).

The unrestored ex-convent (approx. 400 sqm) and a two storey tinnaia provide development potential.  A business could be run from the property, also hosting weddings, thanks to the private chapel which remains consecrated

Location

The villa sits nestled within a charming Lucchese village.  As is typical in many of these hilltop villages, the villa was the principal noble residence in the area with commanding views of the villages and surrounding landscape. Within the village there is a small bar and shop a five minute walk from the villa from which basic provisions can be purchased. The city of Lucca itself is just 15 minutes by car and Pisa airport or the Tuscan coast (Forte dei Marmi) are within 40 minutes. Florence is one hour.
