Villa Olivum is situated in a panoramic position on the hills of Lucca and is surrounded by a large park (which covers 5 hectares), fully fenced by an automatic gate and consisting of various different types of garden. The interior of the park (listed among the historic Italian gardens and therefore open to the public) is characterised by: a wide variety of tree species, great fountains, beautiful stone and terracotta statues, a fake cave, a lovely avenue of cypress and amphitheatres of holm-oaks.
The property also has: a swimming pool (18 x 8 m, rarely and briefly shared), with deck chairs, sunbeds and parasol; a synthetic turf tennis court; a large equipped area with dining table and barbecue.
Built around the 16° century by the architect Matteo Civitali at the behest of the Buonvisi family, the property is made up of 1 main house (where the owner lives) and 1 independent dependance (in which guests are lodged). This latter is in turn formed by a large apartment on several levels with windows overlooking both the main house, the garden and the swimming pool.
The dependance (400 sqm) is spread over 2 floors and can accommodate up to 16 people for a total of 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.
Ground Floor: The ground floor consists of several rooms. Some of them can be reached from the garden of the villa, such as:
- two airy living rooms with dining table, sofa and fireplace;
- two kitchens equipped with oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and breakfast table, and with access to the internal stairs;
- four bathrooms (three with shower and one with bath);
- two double bedrooms (one with en-suite bathroom with shower), two twin bedrooms and one single bedroom (passage room);
- one small walk-through living-room (with single sofa bed).
The other rooms of the ground floor have an independent entrance from both the internal stairs and the garden, such as:
- a twin bedroom and a double bedroom with fireplace;
- a bathroom with shower;
- a small living room and a small kitchen with breakfast table;
- a single bedroom.
The rooms of the ground floor have air conditioning.
Lower Floor: On the lower floor, to which you access by the internal stairs (18 steps), there are: a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a living room with kitchenette and access to the large outdoor area overlooking the swimming pool and equipped with dining table, parasol and barbecue.
The rooms of the lower floor does not have air conditioning since, thanks to their position, are naturally cooler than those of the ground floor.
The dependance is very large and equipped with all the amenities (swimming pool, outdoor area with barbecue, tennis court, air-conditioning, satellite TV, dishwasher). An ideal place for several families with children wishing to spend an unforgettable holiday in the heart of the Lucca countryside, and just a short distance from the beach resorts (the Versilia coast, in fact, is only 40 km away).
The furnishings, in typical Tuscan style, are cozy and comfortable. The four kitchens (two large and equipped and two smaller), spread out in different places, are certainly useful.
