Villa De Ranieri is an exclusive villa built in the 17th century, on the hills 4 kms south of Lucca. It was recently renovated trying to keep the old frescoes, ceiling, floor, doors and in the same time adding all the facilities of a modern mansion. The villa is surrounded by a large park with private alee, olive trees and a beautiful swimming pool. The absolute privacy, together with the high-end standard of elegance and luxury makes this property a very unique and charming place where to stay
The very elegant reception hall communicates with two large and cozy living-rooms with a great character and charm, and with a luxurious dining room with a 10/12-people table. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms on this floor.
The two living rooms are: one with a library, a fireplace and TV with satellite and SKY, fax, DVD/CD player and a minibar; the other one the central living room, has two terraces offering panoramic views on both sides of the garden. Beyond of it there is a huge wardrobe room
There are two double bedrooms: the first one has a four-poster queen size bed with an en suite bathroom and the second one, called “first master room”, has a queen size bed with en suite bathroom equipped with a shower box, air conditioned and TV sat with Sky.
On the first floor there is a twin bedroom with an en suite bathroom. Further down a passageway there is a small queen bedroom with an en suite bathroom to be eventually shared with a little dressing room connected to it and that can be converted into a single bedroom on request. The last double bedroom is considered the “second master room” with big windows overlooking the extensive grounds, an en-suite bathroom plus a TV sat with Sky channels
There is a lovely library with a working fireplace and TV with satellite and SKY, fax, DVD/CD player and a minibar. Also on this floor is a central living room with two terraces and a panoramic view on both sides of the garden. Beyond it, there is a huge wardrobe room if you wish to rid your bedroom of luggage
On this floor there is a lovely Tuscan very well-equipped kitchen with a huge marble top table and just beyond it, a breakfast room, opening into the garden and the outside furnishings ideal for ‘al fresco’ meals
There is an outside dining table just outside of the kitchen. In front of the house you will find an enormous garden (about 10.000 sqm) with a gazebo midway to the pool. The pool measures 46’ x 20’ (depth about 2 ft) and is perfectly situated to offer a sunny side and a shady side. It is well furnished with sun beds, tables, umbrellas and a bathing-hut with a shower (where hot water is directly generated from solar energy). The pool is treated with very low percentages of chlorine. Many terracotta pots full of flowers decorate the landscape and there is a sensational mountain set behind the garden with beautiful olive tree groves. Private parking is available for many cars.
