Built as the summer residence of the important Controni family, noble merchants of Lucca, through the centuries the house has hosted many famous personalities, such as Prince Frederick of Denmark and Norway. Located in a beautiful estate in the hills of Vorno, at the foot of Mount Pisano, this magnificent Villa, 6 km from Lucca, has beautiful fresco painted walls and is surrounded by centuries old trees, olive groves and pine forest hilltops with castle ruins. It has a small deconsecrated church where the famous Luigi Matteucci was buried (a diplomat of the Granduca of Tuscany in France and father of Felice Matteucci, the inventor of the first stroke engine). For many years the fertile estate has been devoted to the cultivation of rare flowers and to the production of extra virgin olive oil but nowadays it is a relax heaven in the middle of the Tuscan countryside. At short distance from the ancient town of Lucca, the Villa benefits from a very nice location in the hills with breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside. Our guests will enjoy this amazing panorama taking advantage of the peacefulness of the Tuscan countryside by the swimming pool
area with sun loungers and deck chairs. The former lemon house has been restored and converted to a fitness area with beautiful big windows overlooking the pool. A nice walk through the centuries old trees of our beautiful Italian garden; a dinner under the stars in the magnificent alfresco dining area in the backyard of the Villa with an exclusive view of the olive groves and neighbouring villages: you will be spoilt by the choice!
Under the arched loggia there is also another lovely dining area with BBQ.
Workout room in front of the pool (with cardiovascular and weight equipment), covered veranda with table for 24 people.
