Villa Ortensia

Lucca, 5 Bedrooms – Sleeps 10

Villa Ortensia typifies simplistic Tuscan elegance. Owned by an artist, painter and sculptress – as you’d expect, the Tuscan villa has been beautifully furnished - wooden and stone floors meet vibrantly painted walls – portraying the spirit of Tuscany. Whilst maintaining its rustic origins, there are numerous contemporary art pieces sprinkled throughout the villa, adding to its appeal. Pretty landscaped gardens surround the villa, with plenty of shaded spots and spaces to completely relax and immerse yourself in a good book.

Fortuitously, this area is less touristy than other parts of Tuscany, and still offers as much as the more well-known areas. Lucca is a gem, very accessible and only 15 minutes away and Versilia, with its long sandy beaches is only 30 minutes away. The famous port of Viareggio and the renowned Forte dei Marmi are all located in Versilia. And Bolgheri - one of Italy's most prestigious vineyard areas, with its super Tuscan wines - is approximately 98kms away.

The property is set over three floors, with one bedroom on ground floor and four further bedrooms spread over the first and second floors.  The ground floor is largely open plan with a farmhouse-style kitchen, dining room and sitting room and large wooden doors leading to the front gardens and outdoor dining areas, equipped with a beautiful wooden table with marble top seating 10 people - all covered with pergolas. The owner’s studio/atelier, at the heart of the house, is a quiet space to sink into a comfortable sofa.  

The gardens - extensive lush-green lawns and well-manicured borders of lavender, and herbs are beautifully maintained, with masses of al fresco dining options – perfect for a long and lazy lunch or firing up the pizza oven. Wander down the garden through the olive and cypress trees and you’ll find the swimming pool, which is heated during the spring and early autumn months, surrounded by beautiful indigenous trees and shrubs. The villa is gated and has enough space to park a few cars.

The living space of the villa develops on ground floor, consisting of open spaces with comfortable sofas for the guests, a fully functional kitchen, an indoor dining area and a bathroom. There's direct access to garden and outdoor dining area with beautiful views, equipped with a beautiful wooden table with marble top seating 10 people. From the sofas area you access the ground floor bedroom.
