What it makes Villa Segale absolutely special is the view which extends from the town of Lucca (just 10 minutes away) to Pisa leaning tower on clear days. Not to mention the interiors where every little detail is just perfect and of the best quality.
Villa Segale forms part of a 75 acre farm estate in the hills just 10 minutes west of the historic Tuscan town of Lucca and can be reached along a short gravel track from the neighbouring village.
Dating back to the 11th century, this 6 bedroom farmhouse has been completely restored to the highest standards, retaining throughout its authentic Tuscan architectural features and interior design. The property’s extensive grounds comprise delightful vineyards, olive groves and meadows, which ensure utmost privacy and tranquillity.
From its privileged hillside setting, it enjoys spectacular sweeping views out across the peaceful green valley below, as far as the gentle, wooded hills on the horizon and then extending out towards the entire area of Lucca to Pisa and the Tyrrhenian coast.
GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL: The villa’s gravel surround, with its adjoining lawns dotted with mature, shade-giving trees, boasts an idyllic backdrop of wooded hills and the peaceful green valley below. A choice of two welcoming patios entice you to relax and unwind outdoors, maybe while lingering over an aperitif or savouring a leisurely al fresco meal. Surmounted by a pergola covered by a centuries-old, profusely rambling grapevine, the spacious front terrace leads directly into the house. Alternatively, from the kitchen you can access the villa’s side patio, where a newly planted grapevine provides welcome shade on a second pergola. Here a large stone table, seating up to 10 people, stands alongside the built-in BBQ and marble sink unit.
Set on a raised lawn terrace, well out-of-sight to the rear of the house, the large pool (14 x 7 metres, 1,50 meters deep) offers complete, undisturbed privacy and seclusion.From this exceptional, elevated, suntrap position, uninterrupted countryside views are afforded, stretching as far as the eye can see. Two covered parking spaces are available in the property grounds, as well as ample additional parking space on the villa’s forecourt.
