18th Century Post House villa europe

18th Century Post House

Fabulous views over the Tuscan countryside, yet only a short walk to the heart of Cortona or the Etruscan ruins; this lovely old villa meets most everyone's needs.  


Some parts of the house date from 600 BC but restoration was completed in 2007. The furnishings were selected from the family's collection of antiques. French doors open into the front garden which overlooks the pool, equipped with a salt warmed electrolysis water treatment system and sun shower. An outside dining table and chairs placed near the kitchen door offer al fresco dining overlooking six hectares of lawns and gardens and a trekking path directly from the property.

  • Villa Bougainvillea

    In a beautiful corner of Tuscany, and exactly in proximity of the antique parish of Vorno, nearby the medieval town of Lucca, Villa Bougainvillea was built around the middle of 17th century.

    Reserved and protected by a stone enclosure wall, the Villa is the true expression of Lucca’s sober architecture following the respect of the rules in placing the noble floor raised from the country floor, in the entrance portal with the double flight stairway, in the symmetrical distribution of the rooms around the central salon, in memory of a lifestyle based on an easy elegance of those days.

    As the gates open you are immediately transported to what seems like another time as the elegant cypress trees welcome you. The wide park with lime-trees, oaks, olives, magnolias , large bushes of aromatic plants and roses is the ideal background for the Romanic style swimming-pool nowadays winded by a romantic pergola of Bougainvillea.
