Description

In the Tuscan countryside between Lucca and Pistoia, a wonderful and antic villa is located on the first hill.
Villa Guardatoia, which dates back to the seventeenth century it is unusually still owned by the same Family who built it together with its private chapel. The name of the villa seems to derive from the English “warden”, in fact its dominant position not only allows a wide and magnificent view of the surrounding plain but also allows you to enjoy spectacular sunsets.
The façade has three rows of windows and a portal in pietra serena surmounted by the Family crest. In addition to having a very generous entrance and staircase, it has inside many rooms furnished and decorated with elements of the time such as grass juices, an ancient technique for tapestries, frescoes and paintings. The park consists one part on a large lawn in front of the villa that forms an immense natural terrace which gives a sense of marvellous “infinity” on the landscape. On its sides there are two gardens: a rose garden and an Italian garden, both closed by walls embellished with terracotta statues. Both have a conservatory and are connected to each other externally by a “corridor” of camellias and hydrangeas. Adjacent to the villa there is a very well kept wood where you can relax, a water cistern fed by a private spring (owned by the consortium) and a small lake.
The access to the villa is marked by an important and elegant entrance surrounded by holm oaks and centenary pines. The property also has olive trees and a vineyard with a production of DOC vinsanto, wine and DOP and olive oil. The property has an exceptional location as, while enjoying the peace that only nature and the countryside can give, it is 1 km from all the comforts that the city of Pescia offers as well as being served by a very well organized and complete hospital. The asset includes: the Villa of about 950 square meters; cellar, garage, coppaia, vinsantaia of approximately 420 square meters; conference room (lemon house) of 100 square meters with kitchen and 3 service bathrooms, double access and disabled access area; Noble chapel (70 square meters); artificial lake whose water can be used to irrigate the entire farm; small B&b above the cellar area.
