Commanding a stately presence deep in the green hills and dense forests of the countryside between Lucca and Pisa is seven-bedroom Carista. Sleeping up to 16 people in eight sumptuous bedrooms across the main villa and an annexe, this is a palatial paradise for large group getaways. Both buildings have retained much of their original exteriors and are set within a 100-acre estate of woodland and olive groves providing utter quiet and privacy. The villa dates back to the 15th century and offers spacious accommodation over three floors. The interior is contemporary, comfortably furnished and full of areas to relax, dine and socialise. Colourful modern artworks make the fresh white walls stand out beautifully, with bespoke furniture in every room adding unique character. Making it a joy to move around Carista is an elevator that takes you from one leisure space to another with ease. A games room, cinema/media room and gym are just some of the rooms and facilities on offer. Five of the seven bedrooms are found in the main villa, with each enjoying their own luxurious ensuite or private bathroom. The master suite with king-size bed is especially sumptuous and has a marble ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi bathtub. A second bedroom with a king-size bed boasts a Turkish bath. There are another two bedrooms with a king-size bed, with a queen-size bed in the fifth. The annexe is home to the remaining two bedrooms with a king-size bed each. One also has a private bathroom, with a bathroom shared between the other two bedrooms. The stunning landscaped gardens are bordered by soaring cypress and feature palm trees, olive trees and a private vegetable garden. Set into the lush lawn is a swimming pool for cooling off in style. Al fresco meals are romantic occasions, with scents of the garden and the sounds of nature as perfect accompaniments.
