Villa San Martino offers breathtaking views, four fireplaces and saltwater pool
Description from the manager
With four fireplaces and a pizza oven, villa San Martino quite literally provides a warm welcome to Tuscany. The restored 18th-century stone farmhouse is located on forty acres of land outside Lucca and makes the perfect place to either unplug and unwind or explore Pisa, Florence and the beaches of Forte dei Marmi.
Drive through vineyards and olive groves to reach the villa’s remote-controlled gate and lush grounds. The outdoor spaces feature a sixty-foot saltwater swimming pool, al fresco living and dining areas and a pizza oven. Indoors, cozy up in the large library, settle into the card room for an evening of games and enjoy Wi-Fi access. Get a feel for—and taste of—the local culture with daily deliveries of newspaper and fresh bread.
San Martino’s spacious rooms are a mix of original architectural features, like fireplaces and beamed ceilings, and rustic-style modern furnishings. On sunny days, the living room’s French doors let in light from the garden; on rainy days, curl up on white slipcovered sofas around the 16th-century fireplace. Bring your sketch pad and let the spacious stone-walled studio inspire you. The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and charming details like a stone sink.
The villa’s five bedrooms are on three levels. On the lower level, there’s one bedroom with a queen bed, en-suite bathroom, sitting area and garden access. On the ground floor, you’ll find two bedrooms with king beds and en-suite bathrooms. The two bedrooms on the second floor each have two twin beds, which can be combined to form king beds, air conditioning and reading areas; one has a private bathroom and the other has an en-suite bathroom.
San Martino is in the heart of Tuscany, close to several cities and the coast. The city of Lucca is only 4 miles away and Pisa is 18 miles away; on a clear day, you can see its leaning tower from the villa’s windows. The beaches of Forte dei Marmi are a 30-minute drive away, and if you’d like to take a longer day trip, Florence is 50 miles away.

The historic town of Lucca features many attractions and unlimited historic charm. Take a stroll or rent a bicycle and ride through the town past famous monuments, ancient walls, several churches and the Guinigi Tower, which has trees planted at the top. In the town's cathedral is a small chapel containing the famous "volto santo" cross of Lucca. Every September 14th, the huge procession of Santa Croce fills the streets of Lucca to commemorate the date when the cross was first brought to the town. Tourists from all over the world come to enjoy this annual local tradition. Make sure to visit the church of Saint Michele, then enjoy cappuccino in Saint Michele square. And don't miss shopping along the Via Fillungo! There is something interesting to discover around every corner of Lucca.
North of Lucca, the famous Garfagnana Valley extends for miles, a splendid natural vista of mountains and hills.
