Orfea Tuscany

Overview

Only a ten minute drive away from the city sits Orfea, a superb luxury villa that dates back to the 15th century and now completely and painstakingly renovated to transport you to the an era of modern beauty and sublime elegance.

No matter what your ideal vacation looks like, the medieval city of Lucca and its surroundings offer so many opportunities: if you like to keep up with your workout, the city’s 16th century walls are a glorious backdrop to stroll, powerwalk, jog or cycle to; for the beach lovers the coastal strip of Versilia, reachable within 30 minute drive, is the place to be; for the music aficionados many classical and rock/pop music festivals are held here throughout the year. That’s why Lucca is becoming one among the elite summer destinations in Tuscany.

Many features make this property perfect for kids: the estate is gated and completely fenced, the swimming pool has a shallow side, there is a children playground and the nearby city of Lucca offers a wide range of things to see and it is mostly car-free.

Accommodations

Ground Floor

As soon as you enter the foyer you will feel the special atmosphere that permeates the villa. The neutral and earthtoned colors used in the family room, such as golden yellow and terra cotta, typical of the Tuscan style, create an airy and fresh effect. Frescoed walls, large fireplace as a focal point and a beautiful crystal chandelier set the elegant tone of this comfortable room. The very generous formal dining room has seating for up to fifty people. The room features lit china cabinets, coffered ceiling, classic art on the walls, and tall arched French doors opening onto the garden: everything work together to create the ultimate formal dining experience. The professional-grade kitchen boasts ample counter space for prepping meals, a gorgeous central stove, vaulted ceiling, large window and access to the garden. A lounge room with large flat screen satellite TV, a well-stocked library room, and a guest bathroom complete this floor.

A perfect experience From the moment we …
P. Family • June 2017

A perfect experience
From the moment we stepped into Villa Orfea we knew it would be the perfect place to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday! The staff was incredibly accommodating, which was no easy task when you consider a group of 24 people! Villa Orfea served as an ideal home base from which to experience the wonders of Tuscany. After a day of touring we all looked forward to spending the afternoon relaxing poolside. Our time at Villa Orfea exceeded our expectations. We are all in withdrawal!!
