Europe / Italy / Tuscany
Just a twenty minute drive from the pedestrian city of Lucca, Villa Alata boasts a couple of unique and unexpected characteristics: it is built into the marble side of a hill and its roof opens to naturally ventilate its interiors.
The property is composed by the main villa and an annex, close to each other. The location is very private and yet near the convenience of Lucca. Beside the originality of the dramatic design, another big plus of this luxury villa is the stunning eagle-eye view of the below valley from most rooms and from the spectacular infinity swimming pool. For those who want to add striking style and modern amenities to the traditions of Tuscany, Villa Alata is the perfect retreat which will fill all guests with wonder every time.
Villa Alata will take your breath away! This is a one-of-a-kind property, a triumph of white marble in both indoor and outside, where is possible to enjoy modern art anywhere you turn. Every details has been thought out, even the carefully designed shutters for doors and windows create patterns of shade and light for a dazzling effect. Almost everything has been custom built for this property and its location is perfect to explore the best of Tuscany: from the marble quarries in Carrara, to the vineyards of Chianti. At under one hour’s drive from Florence, and thirty minutes from the beach of Forte dei Marmi, Villa Alata is a stunning retreat where form and function are perfectly blended.
A semi-enclosed spiral staircase, white with a splash of primary red, dominates the entrance and welcomes you. This singular architectural structure is a piece of art in itself and divides the living room from the dining room and kitchen. Natural light floods the space through the large sliding glass doors which make up most of the external wall, giving spectacular views across the hills. The sitting room displays a modern white sofa and a large TV, to provide comfort and entertaining for leisurely afternoons or evenings. The dining area features a generous designer table as well as a sculpture bar. The kitchen is stylishly designed in striking black to contrast with the rest of the space. The property offers many areas in which to enjoy a freshly made meal, drinks before dinner or a summer lunch with friends and family.
From the living room guests can access the alfresco dining area through large sliding glass doors. The pool extends further down the garden for a full 26 meters in length - having both a deep and a shallow end, it is perfect to either enjoy a vigorous swim or just leisurely dipping. The stunning pool is decked in white stone, sunbeds and umbrellas are provided for total relaxation during long summer afternoons. On a separate level from the pool, there is another sitting area, next to the ping pong table: lovely white canvas tents offer plenty of shade.
