Tuscany: Papavero Villa

Gorgeous luxury villa in hills above Lucca

  • Name: Papavero Villa
  • Sleeps: 12 + 2
  • Bedrooms: 5
  • Bathrooms: 6
  • Price: €3900 to €8400/week

Enjoy

Escape to the gorgeous luxury Papavero Villa in the beautiful green hills above Lucca. You'll be greeted by a beautifully landscaped and maintained villa estate, lush greenery, fragrant herbs and flowers. The villa takes it name from the pretty poppies seen in bloom throughout the region in the spring and summer, papavero means "poppy" in Italian.  

Location

Located just 15 minutes from Lucca, you will enjoy exploring the region, with day trips into the famous walled city of Lucca where you can wander the streets, enjoy dinner or rent bikes and bicycle along the top of the ancient wall that encircles the city. Florence, Pisa and the sparkling Mediterranean coast line are all an easy drive as is Tuscany's Chianti wine country. For an enjoyable hike head the Apuan Alps, which can be seen from the villa, a 90 minute drive away. 

Exterior

The three-story Papavero villa has French doors on the ground floor that open to the garden where there are two furnished shaded patios, one off the living room, the other off the kitchen with a dining table. The criss-crossed tile on the second floor harkens back to the time when this portion of the original farmhouse was used for storing hay. Dating back to the 15th century, the farmhouse was part of the estate of the noble Buonvisi family who engaged the the famous Renaissance architect Matteo Civitali to design their summer estate. The original noble villa, replete with manicured gardens and expansive grounds, can be seen in the valley directly below the Papavero villa. 

Interior

The Papavero villa is a carefully restored farmhouse built into the hillside where you can enjoy the spectacular, bucolic views from multiple levels. Start out your day with a cup of cup of coffee in the sun room-gazebo, a cute retreat independent from the main house, head out for sightseeing, wine tasting, wandering the enchanting streets of Lucca and finish off the afternoon with a dip in the sparkling pool before cocktail hour followed by dinner. 

From the villa take in views of the Apuan Alps or meditate in the tranquil sun room. Enjoy relaxing around the pool, try your hand at Italian cooking in the authentic pizza oven, or on chilly evenings relax around a cozy fire in the ground floor den. 

There is ample space to congregate with two living rooms, one on the ground floor and another on the second floor.

The ground floor opens to the patio. Living room, dining room, country-style kitchen, powder room and laundry room.
