Recently restored with great care and mastery, Villa Celeste is an aristocratic 19th-century home of old-world charm with its own chapel, olive oil press and castle ruins, set on a vast estate of Tuscan hill-terraced olive groves.
With 11 elegant and luxuriously-appointed guestrooms, it combines the historic beauty of Lucca with top-level service, amenities and decor.
Magnificent views stretch over the Nottolini aqueduct and the lovely Lucca countryside.
This villa was originally built as the summer residence of an aristocratic Tuscan family, who used the fertile estate for the cultivation of rare flowers the property still boasts beautiful gardens.
Accessible via separate garden entrance is a spacious living/game room with billiard, gambling table and dining area with open kitchen corner. Spacious central salon with sofas, armchairs and satellite TV.
An Italian loggia facing the splendid rear garden, floodlit swimming pool (4m x 12m) with outdoor furniture, barbecue, outdoor tables and chairs for al fresco dining.
Villa Celeste has an atmosphere of gentility, sophistication and elegance, from the angel-frescoes ceiling in the lounge and the grand music room, to the arched loggia with views across the camellia garden.
This villa maintains the same very high level of decor and sophistication throughout. There is a well-stocked private wine cellar in the villa, and a professional wine sommelier can be arranged to tailor-design an at-home wine tasting program for your group.
