Villa Cavalluccio

Unique opportunity: Charming villa built in the early 1900 - beautiful gated garden, located just across the Strand Promenade and the sandy beaches of the Versilian Coast. Needs refurbishment, exciting opportunity to develop this classic seafront Villa.             



More information

•        Villa Cavalluccio was built in 1908 as summer residence of the noble Codivilla family and has remained in the hands of the Codivilla heirs until 2014 when it was bought by the present owner.

•        The villa has a unique location as it borders to the Strand Promenade in Marina di Pietrasanta – just few meters across the famous sandy beaches of the Versilian Coast.

•        The two floors above the cellar have been built with 4 mt. high ceilings – as it was customary in the early 1900’s. In a refurbishment process, one could consider rebuilding the inside adjusting the ceiling height to mt. 2,4, thus getting an extra floor.

•        The garden of the villa is as big as the whole lot, comprising also a small pond and fountain.

The Versilian Coast is a part of Tuscany, in the north-western province of Lucca, and is named after the Versilia river. Known for fashionable Riviera resorts, it consists of numerous sandy beaches and clubs that are frequented by local and international celebrities.

The most famous and populated parts of this area are Viareggio and Pietrasanta, with Lido di Camaiore, Marina di Pietrasanta and Forte dei Marmi as the main cities along the coastline.

The Versilian Coast is also backed by picturesque villages in the foothills, with the Apennine mountains providing a dramatic setting to this whole coastline.
