The Villa Fontana estate is made up of three buildings -
Villa Fontana is situated in a quiet village in Tuscany, just 10 minutes from the historic centre of Lucca. Built in the 18th-century and fully renovated recently. A beautifully restored villa with four floors, elevator, 6 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a private spa with indoor pool.
Dependance - In addition to the Villa, guests can add our dependance, a separate building sleeping up to six additional guests. It features three double bedrooms, a living room and a kitchenette. The dependence is comfortable and well-appointed but is not of the same style/standard as the main villa so is best suited for teens or those travelling with staff. While in the winter period it would be advisable to use it for staff travelling with guests.
Forno - (banqueting hall) airconditioned for up 20 people with kitchen, pizza oven and grill on fireplace.
The basement is home to a spa area offering complete indulgence. There is a heated swimming pool with hydromassage jets, a sauna, a hammam, a spa treatment room, and a relaxation lounge. The basement also features a well-stocked wine cellar.
The noble floor has a living room , library, formal dining room, two guests bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen.
There are six comfortable guest bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms split over two floors. All of the bedrooms have king or queen-size beds, which can be converted to twins on request, allowing for flexible sleeping arrangements for different group compositions.
The Dependance was once a farmhouse, highlighting the estate’s rural vocation down the centuries. It can be used as a dependance for staff, being discreetly independent from the rest of the Villa. This separate building – plus its heritage-protected barn – offer superior accommodation for up to six people. On request, the Dependance can also be used by guests in order to reach 18 pax accomodation in total.
The dependance has a serene and authentic beauty with a contemporary touch. The house has a cosy living room with a wood-burning stove sporting an attractive hand-painted mural. A classically stylish kitchen offers a full range of cooking facilities. Each suite has its own character and features a comfortable and stylish bathroom, thoughtfully finished with terracotta floors and retro style sanitary ware.
Resplendent in earthy pink tones on its exterior, the farmhouse has been tastefully redecorated from top to bottom. Yet this building retains much of its old authenticity and charm, thanks to the re-purposing of original materials (windows and antique terracotta floors) or retro-style restoration of various old furniture by local artisans.
The dependance is set out on two floors:
The Forno is airconditioned and can seat up to 20 people with kitchen, pizza oven and grill on fireplace.
The villa can be rented either with the use of 6 bedrooms (up to 12 pax) or adding the dependance with the use of 3 bedrooms (up to 6 extra guests)
NOTE - The dining room of the villa can accommodate up to a maximum of 12 guests but the Forno, the third building of the property, which is the banqueting hall, (equipped with kitchen, pizza oven, barbecue) has a large table for up to 20 people and in case of bad weather can be used as a dining room.
