    Overview

    A sumptuous villa in the hills above Lucca

    Villa Aria is a historical period property set in a private 100-acre estate in the hills of Lucca, with swimming pool, olive groves, fresh grown vegetables, and paths and walks through the private woodlands and natural streams.

    The estate includes a beautifully restored villa built in the late 15th century, with three floors, elevator, a luxury designer kitchen, 5 bedrooms and spacious bathrooms with spa facilities, and a classic Tuscan 18th century farmhouse with a game room, kitchen with open fireplace and 3 bedrooms. 

    Villa Aria is set in a marvelous Italian garden lined by cypresses and palm trees, a unique mélange of tradition and exoticism, and the garden is surrounded by elegant boxwood hedges. Beyond the olive trees, along a cypress-lined path, one reaches the high end of the garden, featuring a sweeping panorama across the Lucca valley, a 56 by 23 feet swimming pool, sunning area and Balinese massage pavilion.

    Next to the pool is a covered Bali-style Summer Kitchen, where you can relax sipping a glass of red wine while admiring the spectacular views, or where you may enjoy a lunch in the open air served at the sandstone dining table. There is also a kitchen area with two refrigerators and an automatic ice machine. 

    The villa is also ideal for a destination wedding and has hosted wedding parties of more than 125 guests.
