About the property

Self standing Villa with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, private pool and garden, views.

Beautiful Villa Lucchese in 1500 in the hills northeast of Lucca, just 13 km from the city walls.

The Villa is located in the village of S. Andrea in Caprile, 350m. above sea level, between olive trees, vineyards and breathtaking views of the valley of Lucca and Capannori.

The villa was recently restored by its owners maintaining all the original features and its period furniture.

It is a historical estate family Pera bought at the end of '700 and has remained in the family until today.

There are two main entrances to the property: one in the north façade, where you can also access by car to the car park, and the second in the south facade with direct access to the rear garden, the chapel and the pool.

The villa is on 3 levels:

Ground floor with typical cuisine of the '600 with a large fireplace, stove terracotta oven perhaps used by the nuns in the past centuries to prepare the hosts), and a sink in Matraia stone. Adjacent there is a lounge and the 'access to the cellars. The family chapel dedicated to St. Francis, the entrance from the outside on the right.

First floor (main floor), with the main entrance, dining room, two sitting areas with tables and chairs, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.

The 3rd floor is the private owner. The owner does not live in this plan on a permanent basis, but is at times during the year to take care of the maintenance of the property.

What about ... I went to a beautiful spring day in mid-morning to take pictures of this property, and I felt catapulted into the past: in an environment of beauty, elegance and tranquility.

The sun flooded with light and pure white rooms and the air was fresh and clean. the chirping of birds and the endless panorama of the countryside and the blue sky was the perfection of nature.

I would imagine this Villa on a summer day .. you would need air conditioning, because opening the windows (2 per bedroom), and keeping the blinds closed, the 'air circulate throughout the entire property while maintaining a pleasant temperature.

Villa Pera is a dream come through for lovers of Tuscany. You could not ask a more typical beauty and history that Tuscan has to offer.

There are many beautiful villages in these hills as Tofori, Petrognano Valgiano, Matraia, etc., with typical restaurants offering exquisite local cuisine, as well as wineries, where you can taste the wine and 'oil produced in this area.

S. Andrea in Caprile is a small ancient village with a church of the 12th century, on a hill about 13 km northeast of Lucca. (About 25 min. drive). The villages along the hills side have restaurants and trattorias where you can taste the local cuisine while admiring the amasing view of the valleys. In this area there is a large production of olive oil and wine. You can visit the farms for olive oil and wine tasting. Close by there are beautiful historical Tuscan villas with italian gardens to visit. The Pinocchio's park in Collodi, is only 6 km far.

This 4 bedroom/3 bathroom 15th century majestic Tuscan Villa is located in the north east hills of Lucca, only 13 km from the walled city.

Villa Pera lies in the village of S. Andrea in Caprile, 350m above sea level, among olive groves, vineyards and breathtaking views of Lucca’s plain.

The Villa has been restored recently by its owner, maintaining all the original features and its own antique furniture. This is a historical residence that the Pera’s family purchased in the 700th Century and it has remained in the family up until now.

There are 2 main gates to access the property: the first gate is the access for cars to the private parking lot, the second gate is situated near the outdoor patio and pool.

The Villa is set on 3 levels.

Ground floor: kitchen and walk-in pantry, storage room with washing machine, a sitting room and the private Chapel which has an independent door entrance.

First floor: main entrance hall, dining room, 2 studios, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

The third floor is kept private for the owner. The owner doesn’t live in this floor, but he uses it during the winter on weekends to take care of the maintenance of the property.

What to say… I went on a early spring mid morning to take the pictures of this property and I felt like I was living in a past life; a life of beauty, elegance and tranquillity. The sun was shining through the windows reflecting the pure light into the rooms and the air was fresh and clean. The endless views of the countryside with the blue sky above, was just nature at it’s best.

I want to imagine this property on a hot summer day. You won’t need air conditioning, if you just open the windows (2 per bedroom), and keep the shutters closed, the breeze is enough to circulate throughout the whole floor maintaining a pleasant temperature.

Villa Pera is a dream come true for Tuscan lovers. A grand elegant historical villa with private parkland and a pool in an ancient village with amazing views…you could not ask for a more genuine setting that this country has to offer!

There are many other villages nearby on the hills side, like Tofori, Petrognano, Valgiano, etc..with country restaurants offering exquisite local cuisine, and wineries where you can sample the local produce and olive oil.
