There are 5 luxury apartments within the restored farmhouse of Villa Mori, an ancient villa on the outskirts of the wonderful walled city of Lucca.
There are 3 two bedroomed apartments and 2 one bedroomed apartments. In each apartment there is a superb large living room with dining area and fully equipped kitchen, a large double or a large double and twin bedroom, luxury en-suite bathrooms, and a bed settee. Outside there is a sheltered patio for al fresco eating and a great BBQ area.
There is a fantastic pool that is the only one of its kind (16x9 metres, max depth 1.5 metres). The pool has a slipway, with the water being constantly filtered by a technique which avoids the use of chlorine. There is a hydro massage area with seating so that small children can use it. The surrounding lawn has sun beds for relaxing in the sun.

Immersed in the incomparably beautiful green countryside and vineyards of Vicopelago, the area is also prestigious due to its many 15th and 16th century villas. Due to its charming landscape, Vicopelago was an area of Lucca favoured by the nobles of the time for building their country houses. The villa and its farmhouse stand in private grounds of almost 8000 square metres, completely enclosed by ancient surrounding walls.
The apartments at Villa Mori have recently undergone restructuring in the typical Tuscan manner. In the front, a green lawn contrasts pleasantly with the red of the farmhouse, and relaxing moments in the open air can be enjoyed under a delightful pergola of wisteria.There is a hydro massage area with seating so that even small children can use it. The surrounding lawn has sunbeds for relaxing in the sun. The pool and grounds, and the bright rooms of the apartments with their lovely furniture and red terracotta floors, ensure that a holiday spent at Villa Mori will be very pleasant and comfortable.
There is horse riding, tennis courts and a golf driving range nearby, and it's only 30 minutes walk into the fabulous medieval centre of Lucca, the home of the great opera writer Puccinni
We stayed at Villa Mori in 2011 for a fantastic summer holiday. The villa was perfect for our large group of friends and family, as being in separate apartments made family routine with the children easier and less intrusive. The accomodation is very comfortable, with high quality and stylish furniture. Usually we had lazy days around the pool, and in the evening we would walk into Lucca.....what a place! Its the most atmospheric city I have ever seen. Normally we would walk back, but taxi's were quick and cheap. The local restaurant near the villa is also good. The owner and agency were very helpful with advice on sightseeing and activities. We're intending to go back next year.
The beautiful walled city is only 3 kms away, 10 minutes by car or bus. Lucca is one of Tuscany's famous 'art' cities, it's laberinth medieval streets hosting many museums and art galleries. Lucca was the home of Puccini, and an opera is held every single day of the year. There are a number of other festivals, notably the Lucca Summer Festival, which has hosted Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Sting and George Benson, among many others. More country pursuits are possible locally, including horseriding and visiting vineyards.
