Immersed amongst the olive groves, only a 3 kilometres from the walled centre of Lucca, and 15 kilometres from the famous beaches of Versilia, Villa La Carciofaia, has been recently carefully restored by the proprietor. The property is built in stone and plaster and is located at the very top of a hill which offers unique views of the town at your feets. The property is surrounded by a big park, typical of the Mediterranean followers and marquis, allowing its guests to enjoy the various kinds of perfumes and colours and there is also a beautiful large swimming pool furnished with deck chairs and sunbeds each one with its own beach towel and head cushion.
In April 2015, British actor Jeremy Irons stayed here for a week. See his photo with me in the photo chart!
