from€6,356/week· Villa

Just a twenty-minute drive from the pedestrian city of Lucca, Villa Alata boasts a couple of unique and unexpected characteristics: it is built into the marble side of a hill and its roof opens to naturally ventilate its interiors. The property is composed of the main villa and the annex, close to each other. The location is very private and yet near the convenience of Lucca. Besides the originality of the dramatic design, another big plus of this luxury villa is the stunning eagle-eye view of the valley below from most rooms and from the spectacular infinity swimming pool. For those who want to add striking style and modern amenities to the traditions of Tuscany, Villa Alata is the perfect retreat which will fill all guests with wonder every time.
