Recently restored with great care and mastery, Villa Celeste is an aristocratic 19th-century home of old-world charm with its own chapel, olive oil press and castle ruins, set on a vast estate of Tuscan hill-terraced olive groves. With 11 elegant and luxuriously-appointed guestrooms, it combines the historic beauty of Lucca with top-level service, amenities and décor. Magnificent views stretch over the Nottolini aqueduct and the lovely Lucca countryside. This villa was originally built as the summer residence of an aristocratic Tuscan family, who used the fertile estate for the cultivation of rare flowers – the property still boasts beautiful gardens.
