With fabulous interiors, superb sea views and a brilliant location near both Pisa and Lucca, this four-bedroom, this villa has the wow factor. Admire the coast, lakes and nearby towns from all three floors, or relax behind a book and soak up the sun by the private pool. When you fancy exploring further afield, choose from a stroll around the sleepy town of Bargecchia just a mile away, head to the beach less than half an hour’s drive away, or head to those two aforementioned cities.
Decorated in baroque style from floor to ceiling, this villa defines opulent. It features marble floors, decorative fireplaces, gilded furnishings and sparkling chandeliers. The grand design extends outdoors, which has Roman steps, statues and pillars, as well as a pergola and three terraces on different levels. There are four bedrooms – two doubles, two twins – making this ideal for both groups of friends and families. The master bedroom, which has an en-suite bathroom, is particularly good for parents travelling with children because it connects to one of the twin bedrooms. The light, bright open-plan lounge and dining room means there’s ample space for the whole party to come together.

All rooms except the kitchen and bathrooms have air conditioning, which is charged on consumption. Laundry facilities are located just outside the villa in a small separate building.

It is surrounded by a paved terrace furnished with sun beds, parasols and a cold outdoor shower. Next to the pool is a gazebo furnished with a sofa, table and chairs.
