In the village of Marlia, about 8 km from Lucca, you will find some of the most beautiful villas of the 16th century, famous not only for their elegant architecture, but also for the gardens and grounds that surround them.
Of these villas, Lucca Villa 6691 is perhaps one of the most interesting. The architecture of this villa was completely transformed in the 1700s, and you can still admire the frescoes on the walls and on the ceilings, and in particular the beautiful vaulted stairs that lead to the upper floors.
When it is not being rented, the villa is often lived-in by the current owner, so it has preserved the pleasant feeling that it is still inhabited, both from the furnishings, with its elegant and precious antique furniture and also from the details: family pictures and objects.
The villa lies on three floors, the ground floor that comprises all the rooms used during the day, with several salons that look onto the garden, while the upper floors are dedicated to the sleeping areas.
All around the villa is a private area of about three hectares, with a marvelous Italian garden next to the villa, a separate area that holds the private swimming-pool of 7 x 14 m, the tennis court, and a spacious outbuilding where ceremonies and meetings can be organized, a small woods with ancient trees and a small vineyard.
