HOTEL  VILLA  MARTA  -  4 STARS

Villa Marta is an eighteenth century villa built as a hunting lodge for a wealthy family.  It is just 5 km from the city centre of Lucca enabling guests to visit Lucca whenever they want.  The Villa itself is situated in the countryside that separates Pisa from Lucca. Characterized by its elegant and comfortable furniture, it has 15 rooms, 2 of which are deluxe rooms located on the third floor of the villa and in the dependance. There is a large pool and a lovely garden.   The hotel is located in a high and sunny position. Inside the complex there is a newer building, the dependance (the servants’ house), a huge garden from the nineteenth century with a combination of Mediterranean and exotic plants, a neo-classic chapel and a modern pool next to a welcoming green space.  Two converging staircases and the emblem of the Scatena family lead to the reception room. Today Villa Marta is decorated with elegant and comfortable furniture, some of which come from the family who built the house. The floor of the hall, covered with Tessieri tiles, the big French doors leading into the garden, and the frescos of one of the deluxe rooms, reveal that the Villa was built for hunting purposes. The ground floor, previously dedicated to the kitchens, is today the location of the Botton D’oro restaurant, where the main decorations are cotto tiles, serena stone, rafters and terracotta bricks.  The stunning park with magnolias, pines, camelias, palms and flower beds is divided in different areas.
