Overview

Both preserve much of their exterior appearance, yet, offering to guests all the amenities of the design-led accommodations of today. The villa is set amid 100-acre estate including woodland, olive groves, cypresses, palm trees and a private vegetable garden, and offers staggering views of the surrounding countryside.

Villa Carista is located in a blessed area near Lucca and offers to the guests not only the spectacular and relaxing countryside, but also the sun, sand and beaches of the Tuscan Riviera. The villa is set in proximity to many interesting sites in Tuscany for you to explore by car and by train.

Pisa is reachable by car in 30 minutes, Lucca, the city of 99 churches, in 15 minutes, Florence and the glitzy beaches of Forte dei Marmi are both 45 minutes away. Tuscany is one of the most sought-after destinations for travelers thanks to the plethora of activities available, and the great food and superb wine it offers. So, when your villa has a prime location and a comfortable design such as Carista’s, the only question popping in your mind should be Why haven’t I booked it yet?
