In the village of Marlia, about 8 km from Lucca, you will find some of the most beautiful villas of the 16th century, famous not only for their elegant architecture, but also for the gardens and grounds that surround them. Of these villas Villa Diodati is perhaps one of the most interesting. The architecture of the villa was completely transformed in the 1700s, and you can still admire the frescoes on the walls and on the ceilings, and in particular the beautiful vaulted stairs that lead to the upper floors. Villa Diodati, when it is not being rented, is often lived-in by the current owner, so it has preserved the pleasant feeling that it is still inhabited, both from the furnishings, with its elegant and precious antique furniture and also from the details: family pictures and objects. The villa lies on three floors, the ground floor that comprises all the rooms used during the day, with several salons that look onto the garden, while the upper floors are dedicated to the sleeping areas. All around the villa is a private area of about three hectacres, with a marvellous italian garden next to the villa, a separate area that holds the private swimming-pool of 7x14m, the tennis court and a spacious outbuilding where ceremonies and meetings can be organised, a little wood with ancient trees and a small vineyard. The two annexes are in a typical L-shaped building close to the villa. The villa is equipped with telephone, satellite TV and a stereo/CD, AC in the main villa's bedrooms. The rental price includes a daily cleaning service, breakfast, preparation of lunch or dinner (your choice) with waiting service at table, bath-linen is changed daily and bed-linen is changed twice a week, and there is a weekly laundry service. Florence is about 80 kms away, Pisa airport about 30 kms and the sea at Versilia about 25 kms.
