Serraglio stands in breathtaking position surrounded by terraces of
olive trees, lavender, fruit trees and herbs, high on a hillside,
with magnificent views on the surrounding countryside and the
Appennines in the distance. The tranquility, the freshness of the
air, the colours, the sense of space of this environment will make
you feel in a relaxing and peaceful oasis. Despite its totally
secluded position it is located only 5 km from the ancient Spa town
of Bagni di Lucca, once favoured by Byron, Shelley, Strauss among
others. Both from the exterior and interior of the house the views
are exceptional. It took a very lengthy and extensive renovation to
transform what was once a ruin of an impressive stone-built 18th
century building into a beautiful house equipped with every comfort.
The restoration, with the antique cotto floors and "cassettone"
ceilings reflects the love for the Tuscan tradition. The sense of
style, the passion for art and the extensive travels of the owners
add a special touch to the interiors, decorated with antiques, works
of art and very comfortable furniture. The property is equipped with
every comfort, including the large outdoor Jacuzzi located in a
private, gated, courtyard, a gym, a multi-room sound system with
multiple cd-players, Ping-pong table, bocce lawn, Satellite HD
TV&DVD, a PC with high speed internet access, separate fax line,
screens in the bedrooms and in the kitchen, etc. The tiled swimming
pool has been placed on the most panoramic position and is
surrounded by immaculate lawn with two shaded pergolas, one
comfortably furnished for relaxing and one with a sitting area and a
long table. The property is not suitable for children under 8.
