This 15th century villa is situated within a renowned villa, a farmland of 40 acres of vineyards, 20 acres of olive groves, and 80 acres of woodland, all surrounded by undulating hills of the 'Lucchesia' countryside.

Villa Colombo is perched atop the hills of the 'Lucchesia,' nestled between the Apennine mountains and the Tyrrhenian coast. The famous walled city of Lucca is less than 15 kilometres from the villa while Pisa is less than an hour away by car. The steep Apuan Alps lie just to the north, the seaside just to the west, and Florence and surrounding area to the east. Within the walls of this historic estate, a classical garden of palms and pines gently shade the panoramic terrace. Within these walls is also a small, old chapel, a remnant of this classic villa's past, juxtaposed with a modern swimming pool.

Inside the dwelling is a restored aristocratic villa with touches of modern country farmhouse. The home is filled with period antiques and art, with splendid frescos lining the walls. The hearth of the home is the charming country kitchen with a rustic fire place and stone sink (and all modern equipage). The villa can welcome up to eight guests and features four charming bedrooms, each with a private bathroom.

The villa sits on the grounds of a world-class vineyard, olive grove, and fruit orchard, with fields of vegetables and wheat, and bee farms, pigs, chicken, guinea fowl and rabbits - where all is farmed biodynamically. Here, guests experience a uniquely Tuscan retreat as they sip upon the renowned wine from the vineyard, the liquid expression of the Lucchesia landscape.
