All upstairs bedrooms have terracotta floors and old beams, which have been restored with great taste and care by the owners.

For over 30 years the owners have cultivated their passion for antiques and have equipped the villa with pieces purchased at auctions, antique shops and antique fairs (there are many in the surrounding towns of Tuscany, Lucca and especially Pistoia). The owners taste is eclectic and includes pieces from the 15th century to the period of French liberty.
The pool is 8 x 16 meters and has a hot tub for 8 people. It is located on a natural terrace a few meters from the villa and has a magnificent and almost theatrical view over the valley. It is equipped with tables, chairs, umbrellas, couches and sun beds, all of teak wood. The pool has a special cleaning system that ensures maximum hygiene. It has 0.7% salt, the same percentage found in the human eye. This eliminates the odor and feel of chloride on the skin. You can also keep your eyes open while you are underwater. It is open from April to October if the weather permits. It is especially beautiful at night when lit.
