Contemporary homes that are works of art. Sleek, sophisticated, and well designed, this contemporary Tuscan villa for rent has serious curb appeal.
This unique property is located at 10 minutes driving from Lucca. The owners, both architects, being artists and designers for the most famous Italian Companies, created this place as a laboratory of ideas and projects. Driving along an antique asphalted narrow road, arriving at the entrance of the property, it seems to have been arrived to a white contemporary retreat. Built on the white marble rocks, this luxury villa offers a spectacular view of Lucca, while enjoying the silence of the place.
The property is composed of a main villa with 4 doubles, and a guest house with one double bedroom and one bedroom with French bed, located on the premises of the property grounds a few meters from the villa. The property consists of 10 hectares of olive groves and woods located on the nearest Lucca hills, 200 meters of altitude above the town. A narrow pathway inside the property is at public use, so it can be rarely driven by some bikers.
Due to the enlightening system of the houses, each room is extremely bright and the original window shutters, like a piece of art, create shade in summer and catch the light deeply in winter.
White sculptures are exposed in the various parts of the villa, both indoor and outdoor.
The central part of the main house is organized around a spectacular staircase represented as a red dazzling evening dress. Rock of white marble appears on the three floors of the main villa. Architecture, furniture, lamps, sculptures, almost everything has been conceived, designed and customized for the villa by the owners.
The very special feature of the house is the hydraulic roof which can be opened thanks to six pistons at 30° angle, like the wings of a butterfly. It is the first house in the world with a hydraulic roof. This allows natural ventilation to cool the house and bring to the villa a very unique and magic sensation of literally sleeping under the stars.
The pool is perfect for swimming with 16mts in length, and another larger area for playing and a hydromassage area, all for 26 meters of length.
The villa has been awarded as one of the most ecological and exceptional homes in Italy.

"We cannot express in one paragraph how truly amazing our stay at Villa Alibia was for us. The moment we walked through the huge glass sliders, we were warmly welcomed by the owner himself and the charming manager. The views are heavenly, the villa is magical. The sculptures, the architecture, the serenity it offers is comparable to no other villa. Situated inside a cliff side overlooking Lucca while being extremely remote, it still offered the option of easy access to other parts of Tuscany. After acclimating to the "challenging" road, which requires a bit of good luck and skill, we truly enjoyed the winding road that led us "home". The birds, the butterflies, dragonflies, moonlight, sunshine and even wild boars, all contributed to our "Tuscan Experience". We feel fortunate to have come upon this Villa, as we dream of the next time we can stay in this truly exquisite property. Thank you!"

"We enjoyed our stay in Alibia, Lucca. Alibia is a stunning place. It is a modern house, spacious for party of 6 and very private.
The only issue we have initially is the road leading to the mountain top where Alibia is located. It is pretty narrow at certain stretch. Once you get used to it, it is not that bad going up and down.
Overall, it had been a good experience.
The house is an architectural marvel. The conceptial thinking underpinning the building is amazing. Every possible detail has been thought through, down to the structure of the toilets.
Thank you for sharing your dream home with us. And allowing us the pleasure of enjoying all this beauty.
Truly a feast for the senses!"
