Villa le Terrazze is a spectacular villa in a truly idyllic setting. Immersed in greenery yet it is only a short drive from the medieval town of Pietrasanta and the golden Mediterranean beaches of Versilia. The property dominates the surrounding tranquil landscape. Perched on the crest of a private hillside, it is secluded, but not isolated, in a superb location with other properties of a similar standard. Entrance to the estate is restricted to residents only through tall, remote controlled iron gates. An ultra modern impressive villa which offers our guests the utmost privacy and comfort combined with the most spectacular views including a village illuminated high on the thickly wooded hillside, down the coastal plain from Livorno to La Spezia and out over the sea. On clear days, one can see Corsica in the distance. There are several entrances to the house which is built out, over the hillside on a series of terraces so that each individual room and terrace enjoy magnificent views.
The main entrance opens into a vast open plan L shaped living area with black granite floors; this room has been carefully furnished in the best of modern Italian design. Comfortable leather couches form a group with a further area that has a large screen TV + video recorder. The dining area has a round marble table seating eight. Virtually two sides of the living area are glass windows with two sets of French doors that open out onto terraces suspended over the spectacular grounds far below. The architect who designed the house intended that the maximum amount of natural light would flood into the living areas. Strip blinds and window screens are fitted at two sides of the living area to take advantage of cool evening breezes.
The classic kitchen is well equipped with a sunny terrace and adjustable canopy. Steps lead down to a large shady covered terrace area with table and chairs and brick built barbecue. To keep the grounds and pool well groomed, the housekeepers/gardeners need regular access; they will be pleased to be of assistance but will otherwise respect your privacy.
This house is particularly suitable for two families or groups of friends traveling together as the bedrooms are arranged as two suites on two floors, each opening out onto a terrace with its own spectacular view.
