Villa Mansi is a large estate, located in the town of Monsagrati Alto, just less than half an hour away from Lucca and equally far to the Tyrrhenian coast at Lido di Camaiore.
Villa Mansi consists of:
1. The main villa,
2. The Farmhouse transformed into a residence with 2 apartments.
3. The chapel with church and sacristy.
4. The caretaker’s house.
5. The swimming pool.
6. About 35 hectares of land, partly olive grove, partly pasture and partly forest,
7. Own water source of very high quality.
The villa is located halfway up a hillside that faces south and has a rectangular base, thus representing a classic example of a country house of the noble Lucca.
It consists of large rooms on the ground floor: kitchen, living room entrance, study, pantry, large basement to store barrels of own produced wine and olive oil.
On the main floor there is a spacious living room of 70 sqm. /753 sqf, 3 bedrooms, 4 living rooms and 2 toilets. These rooms still retain the floors of the 16th century.
The ceilings and walls are painted with frescos and still keep the effigy and coats of arms.
The main living room has direct access to the garden with fountains with nymphs and from here to the pool and the private chapel.
From the living room adjacent to the main hall we find the large balcony overlooking the park and the valley below.
The second floor consists of large rooms used for attic apartments, originally for the servanthood – now representing a great potential for further refurbishment and use.
The villa boasts a huge park with secular trees, that includes a large garden with beautiful plain field terraces where the owners have had operas and other cultural events.
In the park, there is a lake fed by a water source belonging to the estate, and a sloping garden that enhances the position of the villa.
Originally the Villa had the main entrance close to the church; this entrance can still be used, but the main entrance is now the one leading to the lower floor.
The farmhouse and caretaker's house have additional, independent entrances.
