La Torre villa europe

La Torre

Location, location, location! Hold onto your hat, as this is a once in a lifetime experience. You now have the opportunity to look down on Dolce and Gabbana who have a summer house below the tower and the crashing waves and mega yachts go with this tower. Two brothers, English by birth and lovers of the Italian coast, at the end of the nineteenth century, built large summer places on top of the same hill as this tower. Just to spoil the view, an eccentric friend of theirs, English also, built this tower in the valley in between. The eccentric English are gone now but the story goes on. No children under 12 years old permitted.

  • 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.

  • Casa del Ponte e Vini

    Tuscany has kept well hidden, certain jewels where memories and the imagination conjure images of the past which are intense and unforgettable.  Casa del Ponte e Vini, which is an extremely well furnished dwelling, is the result of the conversion and restoration of an old water mill. 


    Completely rebuilt in local stone in 1606 by the Arrighi family, the water mill has shared the same history and dates from the same period as the nearby Abbey of St. Antimo (12th Century). As a mill it functioned perfectly until about 60 years ago.
