On the inside he wooden beams holding the ceilings have been preserved, as well as the terracotta floors covering the most part of the building. Walls are generally plastered (with some exceptions on the second floor) and painted in several colors and some of the rooms exhibit some nice wall decorations.The small chapel is pretty simple in shape and in excellent conditions, with a marble altar, arches covering the single nave and a small sacristy on the right side.Lastly, the vat cellar is in good conditions and thus usable.EXTERNAL AREAOn the outside the villa is surrounded by 12 hectares of land. These include an olive grove (for which there is an oil vat in the cellar), a vineyard which is currently not used, some woodland and a private garden for the house.USE AND POTENTIAL USESThe villa is suitable to the most diverse purposes. It could be used as a private residence for someone looking for a quiet life in the countryside of Lucca. The numerous bedrooms would then allow to host guests, or they can be converted in other locals.The other possible use is as a hosting activity: with ten bedrooms and a high level of privacy there is enough space to host at least 20 people. And this without considering that the vat cellar could be reworked to increase the number of bedrooms, thus increasing the maximum capacity of the business.The presence of a vineyard would allow the production of wine as a complementary activity, for which cellars are already usable in the lower levels of the main building.
