Located minutes from the medieval walled town of Lucca is the ultra luxurious fully air conditioned six bedroom Tuscan villa, Casa Felice Matteucci an impeccably furnished, spectacularly maintained home. No detail is overlooked at Casa Matteucci and everything is always perfect to make your holiday spectacular. Once the workplace of the famed inventor, Felice Matteucci, the inventor of the combustible engine, Casa Matteucci now defines luxury. Each of the spacious and elegant bedrooms features linens and bedding of the highest quality and each bedroom has its own spacious private en suite marbled wall bathroom.
Casa Matteucci is only 25 minutes from Pisa’s international airport and a short walk to the nearby town of Vorno. The villa overlooks picturesque olive groves and a small lake with its own private island! Casa Matteucci abounds with charm and comfort and is the perfect place for families and friends to experience the majesty and splendor of Tuscany – and it is also the perfect venue for small weddings! We particularly recommend booking Casa Matteucci on the third weekend of any month, so you can enjoy the marvelous Lucca open air antiquity market.
Guests at Casa Mateucci have arrived in Paradise – and there are so many things to experience near the villa that it’s hard to pack everything you will want to do into just one week’s stay! Besides private cooking lessons at your villa conducted by top Tuscan chefs, we offer wine tasting both at the villa or at the awesome Enoteca Vanni located on the Piaza san Salvatore in Lucca. In addition to the treasure trove of art residing in Lucca’s 100 churches and splendid museums, there is the Puccini opera festival with an opera every evening. Although the operas rotate amongst five different locations, we particularly recommend experiencing the power of a performance at the San Giovanni Basilique, one of the most beautiful churches in all of the world. The Lucca Summer Festival features major performers; the Eagles, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Lenny Kravitz and Robbie Williams have headlined the festival in recent years . 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 and the Leaning Tower of Pisa is only a 25 minute drive from the villa. 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. The villa’s guests can enjoy tennis at seven different nearby private courts. There are a plethora of bike trails past historical sights and vineyards ranging from leisurely to challenging. 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 and Tuscandream can get you a your private beachside cabana at a prime resort such as Twiga. Several fabulous restaurants are within walking distance including the magnificent Cucina dello Scompiglio, and the popular La Bimbotta is a delightful informal place to have a night of pizza and pasta. La Cecca is a famous trattoria only two minutes drive from the villa, and there are other close by gems including the fabulous seafood restaurant, Skipper and our personal “hole in the wall” favorite pizza parlor “Ceylon Pizza” which is only three minutes from the villa. There are several supermarkets nearby – the best of which is Esselunga a short, five minute drive from Casa Matteucci.
Casa Matteucci is guaranteed to provide the perfect, relaxing but at the same time stimulating holiday for any family or group of friends wishing to live la dolce vita in a splendid surrounding!
