Description: Tuscany villa rental that sits on a stunning estate of terraced olive groves, Villa Controni was built as the summer residence for the Pfanner family of Lucca. The family used the estate to cultivate rare flowers. Later the villa became home of Felice Matteucci, inventor of the internal combustion engine.

Villa Controni is a magnificent Renaissance Tuscan villa with its own chapel, castle ruins, and splendid fountains. The property was completely renovated in 2005.

The pillars and arches of the entrance hall to the villa lead up the staircase, where all the villa's bedroom windows frame panoramic views across Lucca and the surrounding Tuscan countryside.

From the angel-frescoed villa ceiling of the lounge and grand music room to the arched loggia with views across the camellia garden, all of the villa's rooms have been restored according to tradition and furnished to the highest level of style and comfort. This is an exquisite Tuscan villa rental to stay at.
