Orfea 12BDR

Europe / Italy / Tuscany

No matter what your ideal vacation looks like, the medieval city of Lucca and its surroundings offer many opportunities: if you like keeping up with your workout, the city’s 16th century walls are a glorious backdrop for strolling, power-walking, jogging or cycling; for beach lovers, the coastal strip of Versilia is the place to be and is within a 30-minute drive; and for music aficionados, many classical and rock/pop music festivals are held here throughout the year.

Overview

For these reasons and more, Lucca is becoming one of the elite summer destinations in Tuscany. Only a 10-minute drive away from the city sits Orfea, a superb luxury villa that dates back to the 15th century and is completely and
painstakingly renovated to welcome you to the era of modern beauty and sublime elegance.

Many features make this property perfect for kids: the estate is gated and completely fenced; the swimming pool has a shallow side; there is a children’s playground; and the nearby, and mostly car-free, city of Lucca offers a wide range of things to see.

Layout


Main Villa

Ground Floor
As soon as you enter the foyer, you will feel the special atmosphere that permeates the villa. The neutral and earth-toned colors used in the family room, such as golden yellow and terra cotta, typical of the Tuscan style, create an airy and fresh effect, while frescoed walls, a large fireplace serving as a focal point, and a beautiful crystal chandelier set the elegant tone of this comfortable room. The very generous formal dining room has seating for up to fifty people, and features lit china cabinets, a coffered ceiling, classic art on the walls, and tall arched French doors opening onto the garden – all elements working together to create the ultimate formal dining experience. The professional-grade kitchen boasts ample counter space for prepping meals, a gorgeous central stove, a vaulted ceiling, a large window and access to the garden. A lounge room with a large flat-screen satellite TV, a well-stocked library room, and a guest bathroom complete this floor.

First Floor
A traditional sitting room with working fireplace and soft sofas serves as a nice spot for afternoon reading or cozy conversations.
