Casa del Poeta villa europe

Casa del Poeta

Located in the rolling hills south of Lucca and a short walk to a lovely local village, this marvelous villa looks over a pristine valley and is one of the most wonderful properties in the area. 

Casa del Poeta is a magnificent farmhouse, completely renovated in 2014 while at the same time maintaining the classic Tuscan traditions of style and simplicity. 

One of our favorite villas in Lucca, this charming home is nestled in a beautiful private estate that can be reached by a short graveled road from the small village, it is nestled among vineyards and olive groves retaining privacy while offering one of the most wonderful panoramic views of the valley and town of Lucca. Casa del Poeta can accommodate up to 8 people and it is a perfect place for those who value privacy and stunning views of the Tuscan countryside.

Florence’s world famous museums, the Uffizi and l’Accademia are only an hour from the villa. No stay in Lucca is complete without an excursion to Cinque Terre, the picturesque UNESCO world heritage site, which can be reached by train, car or private yacht. Sportsmen will love the area with four major golf courses fairly nearby – the Tirrenia Golf club in Pisa, Versilia on the coast, Montecatini Golf Club set in rolling olive groves, the stunning Pavoniere in Prato as well as the course at Poggio dei Medici close to Florence. 

Bike trails surround you in this magical place... cycle with friends and family past historical sights and vineyards ranging from leisurely to expert. Horseback riding is close to the villa – and lessons for all levels are available. The seaside town of Forte dei Marmi is only a short 25 minute drive.

Several lovely restaurants are within walking distance including the popular La Bimbotta a delightfully informal place to have a night of pizza and pasta. Cucina dello Scompiglio, and La Cecca is a famous trattoria only three minutes drive from the villa, and there are other close by gems including the fabulous seafood restaurant, Skipper as well as the amazing "Ceylon Pizza” which is only three minutes from the villa. There are several supermarkets nearby – the best of which is Esselunga.

The villa also offers an English speaking hostess to assist you during your stay and has also arranged, upon request to offer the services of the aforementioned Valentino to come and prepare a veritable feast which we guarantee will be one of the highlights of your Italian vacation to Tuscany!

  • Villa Vista Lago

    Originally built in the late 1400s and nestled in an acre of olive trees, with a sweeping view of the Mediterranean Sea, Villa Vista Lago is a three-story stone farmhouse, featuring three beautiful master bedroom suites, each with its own private terrazzo with spectacular views.

    Located in the soft hills of Tuscany, Villa Vista Lago overlooks Tuscany's largest and most exciting seaside resort, Viareggio, the evocative Lake Massaciuccoli, the picturesque and convenient town of Massarosa, and the surrounding foothills which lead north to the vast marble caves of Carrara and dramatic scenery of the Apuan Alps and south, past the fields of sunflowers, to the cities of Pisa and Livorno. 

    Every window in the house allows for magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. Looking west to the Mediterranean, one sees the islands of Corsica, Elba, Gorgona and Capraia. To the south lies Lake Massaciuccoli and beyond the lake, in the distance, you can see the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Further south is the port city of Livorno, with the constant comings and goings of the major cruise ships, the nearest port to Florence, Pisa and Lucca. To the east is the village of Pieve a Elici, with its most famous structure, the 11th century Romanesque church San Pantaleone. To the north are acres of olive groves in the surrounding hills. You need only to move from one window to the next to experience the changing light and colors that have inspired Italian artists throughout the centuries.

    Our guests can enjoy beautiful dawns followed by morning sunshine that lasts until the early evening, because of the villa's southern exposure. Every so often, in the distant wetlands near Lake Massaciuccoli, you will see trains that run from Florence or Pisa to Viareggio, reminiscent of a miniature Lionel train moving across the landscape. At dusk the romantic sunsets over the Mediterranean give way to warm evenings, midnight blue skies dotted with stars, and the sparkling city lights of Massarosa, Pisa, Viareggio and Livorno. And in the background you will be serenaded by the soft bells of San Pantaleone reminding you that the hours are passing... but slowly, leaving a frenetic world behind and allowing a different rhythm to engulf you. 

    Villa Vista Lago is perfect as a base from which to venture out and explore the many attractions for which Tuscany is famous. The house is ideally located only a 15 minute drive to the seashore in Viareggio or Forte dei Marmi. The medieval walled city of Lucca is 20 minutes away; the marble caves of Carrara, located in the dramatic Apuan Alps, is a 25 minute drive. Pisa (and the main airport serving Tuscany) is 30 minutes from the house. And it is an hour's drive (or an easy train ride) to Florence.

    Enjoy easy day trips to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Vinci, Volterra, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Pietrasanta, Forte dei Marmi, the island of Elba, the unspoiled and beautiful districts of the Garfagnana and the Lunigiana and almost all of the major attractions of Tuscany. Villa Vista Lago is also very conveniently located for those wishing to visit the Cinque Terre, Portovenere, Portofino, Rapallo and Santa Margherita and the lesser-known but equally beautiful Ligurian seaside villages north of Tuscany.
