Local from Florence

The villa, which is one of the most opulent and spectacular in the whole Lucca area, dates back to the mid-16th century. The long and monumental avenue leading to the villa is lined with cypresses, and has a pompous gate from where the façade can be seen, so rich and adorned that it seems to be embroidered on the stone and marble in a triumph of niches, statues and balustrades. The original building dates back to 1500, but it was radically rearranged a century later by Maurizio Oddi, the same architect who had so deeply transformed Villa Mansi. The "garden of Flora" is the clearest example of Lucchese taste, an amusing and surprising ensemble of grottoes, nymph temples, flowers, masks, secret water games, all intended to make you feel as if you were in a fairy-tale.

Famous noble family from these parts. The family owns a sizeable piece of Florence with their walled villa on Oltarno. Grounds have been re-built in the style of the English garden architect, Capability Brown. The house is still used by the family and has all of its original furnishings. Nice to see how other folk live!
