Location

Villa Fata Morgana is located only 6km from the city centre of Lucca.

Lucca is also known as ‘the city of one hundred churches’ and is very rich in Italian history as it is here where Florentine noble families spent their summers. The city walls that we see today date back to the 17th century and have been restored with 4km of parkland, which makes for a lovely place to walk, cycle or have a picnic.

Presently, Lucca is an attractive location to reside because it is well connected to local motorways and airports and it is found in close proximity to the Tuscan Coast, Versilia and Florence. The city also offers many activities, events and wonderful restaurants.

Description in Detail

Villa Fata Morgana is an intriguing historical property in the breath-taking lush green hills South of Lucca, a mere 6km from the city center. Towering 300m above the level of the city, the property has a spectacular panorama of the famous fortress city.

The foundations of the beautiful historical villa were laid in the 12th century when it was a monastery. Sold to a famous noble family in the 18th century, the property was turned into a countryside villa. A private chapel was attached to one side of the building. Even though the chapel has been deconsecrated its facade is still present.

The 420m2 property is developed on two floors and an additional basement floor for storage. At the moment the villa is equipped and decorated as a restaurant. However, the property can be easily returned to its original state as a private residence upon a revision of the layout of the upper floor to reinstate sleeping quarters. 

The villa has many typically Tuscan finishes, such as brickwork arches, wooden floors, and an authentic fireplace. Access to the villa is through the refined artisanal door at the front side of the villa or the elegant double staircase at the backside of the villa.

The property is surrounded by 34ha of land, which includes an olive grove of 2ha with 400 trees and mainly woodlands. Around the villa, there are several terraces and a covered patio for outdoor dining. An ancient beautifully decorated fountain is connected to a local source and can be restored to its former glory. 

The property has ample outdoor parking and flat areas where it is possible to realize a swimming pool and realize a garden to individual taste. In the park around the villa, there are several small buildings, which need complete restoration works. They could be restored to become external guest apartments or rented out to create a rental income.

Villa Fata Morgana is a little mirage in the lush green hills of Lucca. A typical Tuscan property and an excellent opportunity to customize the villa to taste.
