Capannori, Lucca – Tuscany, Italy

Villa Granduca, nestled below Monte Pisano on the southern outskirts of Lucca, is an historic 19th century Lucchese villa set on a stunning estate of hill  terraced  olive  groves,  elegant  Italian  gardens and pine forest hilltops with castle ruins.

Panoramic views reach out across Lucca and Nottolini’s acquaduct and a pretty walled garden provides a  peaceful  and  relaxing  setting  for  the  swimming  pool and summerhouse with workout room.

In keeping with the villa’s gentle and  enchanting atmosphere, the unique interiors are elegantly furnished with style and charm and offer eleven frescoed guestrooms all with en-suite facilities for up to 22 guests. With three living rooms, a study  area,  a billiard room, a grand banquet room  and  the  shady  retreat  of  an  arched  loggia,  the  villa  offers  larger groups plenty of opportunity to relax in  each  others  company  or  enjoy  moments  of  escape and privacy.

Monte Pisano is historically noted as  being  one  of  the  main  battlefields  in  the  many  wars between Pisa and Lucca which started in  1000  and  continued  for  over  400  years.  The  villa itself was built as the summer residence of the Controni family; noble merchants who,  in 1680,  took  over what is now Palazzo Pfanner in the centre of Lucca. In 1692 Carlo Controni  invited  prince Frederick of Denmark and Norway  as  a  guest  whilst  he  was  visiting  Lucca  during  his  Grand  Tour of Italy.

For  many  years the  fertile  estate which provided housing  for workers,  a chapel, stables and  an olive oil press, was used for the cultivation  of  rare  flowers.  The  estate  is famous  because it  was the residence of Mr. Felice Matteucci, the father of the combustion engine, who invented it in 1853.
