Villa Del Castello
Villa del Castello is situated in the heart of the historic village of Nozzano Castello, just a few kilometres west of the walled city of Lucca and only 15 km from Pisa and its international airport. It is an ideal base from which to visit the sights and treasures of cities such as Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Volterra as well as exploring the nearby coastal resorts, mountains and hills. Situated on a spur of rock, Nozzano Castello rises strikingly and majestically 200 feet above the Serchio plain. The original Castle is thought to have been built in the eleventh century as an outpost of the nearby city state of Lucca during the wars against Pisa.
A second castle was built around 1100 AD, probably under the orders of Matilda of Canossa, Countess of Parma, who was a frequent visitor to Lucca and crony to Astolfo, the Bishop of Lucca. This subsequent castle in turn was destroyed by the warring knight, Uguccione della Faggiuola, from the city state of Pisa. Finally the Castle was rebuilt for the third and last time in 1395 possibly by Paolo Guinigi, the then Lord of Lucca, as verified by a stone bearing that date.
The Villa is accessed by going through the ancient arched gateway of Nozzano Castello and then turning immediately to the right where there is ample private parking. Access is through a wrought iron gateway at the far end of the parking space. The Villa can sleep up to 10 people. The apartments, which are all furnished in period style, can be let together as a whole or booked separately. Catering arrangements are flexible and can be arranged to suit.
The Villa del Castello is a container of fantasies, a chest full of dreams but also the ideal location to celebrate your wedding. With its three terraced gardens filled with flowers,fragrance and its wide open spaces, the Villa is the perfect place to celebrate weddings outdoors when the sun warms the hearts of lovers. With its hanging gardens the Villa allows you to assign different functionalities, playing on the three different levels.
