Overview

Villa Arabella, a beautiful 18th-century residence set in the Versilian hills, is surrounded by manicured Italian gardens and centuries-old olive groves.

In addition to the local medieval town of Pietrasanta, the most important art cities of Tuscany (Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Siena) are within easy reach. The marble quarries of Carrara in which Michelangelo carved his masterpiece are a short drive away as are the Cinque Terre and the Apuan Alps. The famous Versilia beaches and the golf course at Forte dei Marmi are located just minutes away. Relaxing walks through country paths from the villa leading to ancient villages such as Saint Lucia and Monteggiori or to designers shopping in the fashionable centre of Forte dei Marmi are available to complete your holiday.

The villa has been restored with respect to the original building materials, blending the charm of a historic residence with the tranquility and privacy of a private home. Villa Arabella offers a breathtaking panoramic views of sea and hills from the villa, pool, gardens and terrace.

A charming garden with roses and citrus trees faces the sea at the villa entrance. A few steps away, to the left of the living room, is a spacious covered loggia, furnished for al fresco dining, and a panoramic swimming pool.
