Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Lucca - Villa Mori
Villa Mori, classic 17C villa in private grounds ideal for weddings in Tuscany
Immersed in the incomparably beautiful green countryside and vineyards of the area around Lucca called Vicopelago, Villa Mori and its farmhouse stand in private grounds of almost 8000 square metres, completely enclosed by ancient surrounding walls. Vicopelago is prestigious because of its many 15th and 16th century grand villas. Due to its charming landscape, Vicopelago was the area of Lucca favoured by the nobles of the time for building their country houses.
Newly painstakingly restored, Villa Mori's history can be traced back to the 15th century, and in the 1800's the villa was bought by the well known merchant family Mori of Lucca, who gave it their name.
After its fabulous restoration, in the magnificent main villa there is a magnificent ballroom or dining room which can seat up to 50 people, a superbly equipped professional chefs basement kitchen, a salon, a library, a TV room with Sky TV, a lift, and 6
Luxurious spa facilities have also been added, including a Turkish bath, sauna, showers, a salt wall, and relaxation area.
In addition, within the farmhouse a few metres from the villa, there are 4 luxury apartments, and in the former stables near to the pool we also have a luxurious 2 bedroomed house.
Altogether 28 people can be accommodated in beds, and there are a few sofa beds in case of others. The main villa is also accesible to wheelchair users, with a lift to the higher level.
It is possible to rent either the main Villa Mori on its own, sleeping up to 12 people, without the apartments which would remain empty ensuring that the pool and all facilities are private for the use of the villa residents only.
Or the villa and the apartments are rented alltogether, sleeping up to 28 people.
