VILLA BICOCCHE, which appears like something out of a children's fairytale, is situated in a rather strategic position, that is, within the golden triangle of Lucca, Pisa and the best beaches.
In ancient times the villa and surrounding estate belonged to an antique noble family from Lucca. The villa and estate are testament to centuries of Tuscan history. While witness to the changing politics of the region over hundreds of years, the villa has always maintained the local respect for the land and provided work and shelter to countless generations.
The structure has been recently completely renovated and improved, both inside and out, with the construction of a beautiful new garden and swimming pool. Soft colors have been used to enhance the exterior and blend well with the surrounding grounds and woods; inside, the atmosphere is one of country elegance, decorated using rich and refined colors and antique pieces.
The villa is immersed in the greenery and peace that the Tuscan countryside is famous for. At the same time, it is close to the conveniences found in town. In fact, traveling down a beautiful tree-lined road, one arrives at the first medieval village just a kilometer away, which is very famous for the enchanting roads and squares and for several bespoke restaurants and beautiful view of the valley, while at a distance of 7 km you find the beach, with its sandy beaches, shops, restaurants with seaview and kid-friendly establishments. Lucca city centre is located at only 15/20 mins by car (nearly 17 kms).
Decorative plants with brightly colored flowers have been used for the newly designed garden, where they brighten and liven the atmosphere.
The large pool (12 metres x 6 metres - chlorine free water operating with salted water- set in the olive grove) offer guests the possibility to enjoy swimming or a relaxing bath: at the edge of the pool, terraced landscaping provides for a lovely sundeck where one can take in the warm Tuscan sun and enjoy the lovely panorama. The grounds right outside the kitchen are also host to an area equipped for outdoor dining with a barbeque, table, chairs, sofas and 2 loungers – the perfect spot for a cheerful meal among family and friends.
The interior of the villa is characterized by a warm and welcoming atmosphere: drapes, wooden antique furniture, large comfortable beds and comfortable couches. All the furnishings have been chosen with care and taste, offering up a harmonious mix of traditional comfort and modern practicality.
The ceilings are original: on the ground floor we find beamed ceilings in the area that was once the cellar. The spacious kitchen is well-equipped with a wide range of cooking utensils and appliances. A dishwasher and all the necessary items that a holiday chef might need to feel at home. The bathrooms are spacious and provides both a built-in shower and a bathtub, with carefully selected fixtures that render them particularly pleasant and functional.
My aunt, Giuliana (in her 70s), lives in the detatched attic of the villa. She has a separate entrance and staircase. She is available for any need during the stay of my guests and loves to take care of the garden and pool maintenance.
The house, the garden and the pool are not sharing. We rent the property to only 1 party per time so privacy is never compromised. My aunt does not use the pool or the garden.
