19th-century Tuscan villa built into the hills
Savor a quintessential Tuscan experience at Rica. Dating to the 19th century, this charming estate outside Lucca has been fully restored to a high standard of modern luxury—yet still retains its historic charm. Reserve this vacation rental as a base to explore the area, or simply to enjoy its peaceful setting on a farm that produces olive oil and honey.
Take in the views of the countryside and bask in a breeze scented by wildflowers from outdoor living areas that feature a pool, barbecue and al-fresco dining table. After a day of sightseeing, treat yourself to a pampering session in the indoor sauna, steam bath and hot tub, or unwind with high-tech help from the TV or Wi-Fi.
Warm, welcoming interiors encourage the whole group to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Spend a quiet moment reading in the sunroom, cozy up to the fireplace in the living room or relive the day’s adventures around the expansive table in the dining room. The kitchen is impressively equipped with a steam convection oven, blast chiller, other appliances and a breakfast table.
Whether you’re on a family trip, a getaway with friends or even your honeymoon, there’s plenty to delight around Rica. The villa is only a 10-minute drive from the city of Lucca, 20 minutes from Pisa and 35 minutes from the beach resort of Forte dei Marmi. If you’ll be staying during the summer, don’t miss the Festival Puccini in nearby Torre del Lago; what better place to see and hear this composer’s iconic operas than his hometown.

Tuscany is a charmed land, equally blessed by the genius of man and nature,
and often by the combined efforts of both. Think of the vineyards: rows of baby
green vines that manage somehow to march in arrow-straight formation up the
gently rolling hillsides, bounded by single files of darker green cypress trees,
snaking sandy roads leading to rust-colored farmhouses and moss-coated castles,
symmetrically rounded hilltops surmounted by towns so homogeneous as to seem
one single building. Every inch of land has been sculpted, first by the elements
and then by generations of inhabitants whose goals were always twofold: make
the land produce as much as possible, make the land as beautiful as possible.
Tuscany enchants us today because it holds together as a region, from the tiniest
hamlet to Florence the Magnificent. For the living proof, take a short walk
one day along the sides of the Belvedere in Florence: you will leave behind
the traffic and suddenly find yourself strolling down quiet lanes bounded by
tall stone walls, cypress trees and creamy-colored villas.
