A splendid 16th century villa, originally belonging to the Buonvisi family and it is part of a famous Lucchese country estate. In recent years, restoration work has been done, without detracting from the original character of the house. The ancient cotto floors, beamed ceilings and old fireplaces have all been preserved. The rooms are spacious and very light and tastefully furnished with antiques.
In the huge kitchen, there is a beautiful big fireplace, thus making Buonvisi suitable and comfortable also for winter holidays. The property also has a particularly large, flat garden on three sides of the villa, with several shaded areas. To the front of the villa there is the swimming pool with views over the plain of Lucca below.
The house benefits from having satellite TV, DVD and hi-fi system.
