This gorgeous villa, Villa Silene, situated in the hillside outside of Lucca, is a gem of a Tuscan farmhouse set upon a stunning estate of hill-terraced olive groves, overlooking a small lake with its own little tree-shaded island reached by a wooden bridge.
Villa Silene holds a wealth of history, tradition and culture within its walls: in the 19th century, it was the home of Felice Matteucci, the man who in 1854 invented the first stroke engine (prototype to the modern-day motor car) in his on-site workshop. Within the estate, guests can enjoy the jasmine covered gazebo, surrounded by a lush green lawn and manicured gardens, setting the perfect backdrop to the flood-lit swimming pool. The estate is located in the Tuscan countryside in proximity of the city of Lucca, only four miles away, and a very short drive to the city of Pisa, with its famous tower, and the glamorous beaches of Forte dei Marmi.
The villa is a treasure, offering both comfort and elegance, a timeless blend of historic elegance and modern luxury. The villa features a spacious and sunny salon with comfortable sofas, a guest study, a grand domed dining room, and a fully-equipped, traditional Tuscan kitchen. The estate can welcome up to twelve guests and includes six luxuriously appointed guestrooms, each with a magnificent en-suite bathroom.
This gorgeous estate, boasting magnificent and beautifully manicured gardens, a private, idyllic lake, and a simply blissful atmosphere, is a delightful retreat where guests can discover the magical beauty and pleasures of 'La Dolce Vita.'
