The villa distances about 50 km from the historical center of Lucca and from Florence, and only 60 km from Pisa, which makes it a perfect spot for daily visits and tours.
Villa De' Fiori is a relaxing oasis surrounded by greenery. In the front side there is a beautiful garden, shaded by tall trees.The old fountain surrounded by stone benches, recalls the glories of the past.
The Villa dates back to the middle of 1600 and the first historical memory of the property belonged to the family Pacchiani, originally from Livorno, who lived there until the early ‘900. At that time, there were many plots on which vines were planted almost anywhere. This wine, until a few decades ago, it was also known with the name of zone of Chianti Putto. The extension of the property was much larger than the present, insomuch as the research carried out shows that come to the borders of the walls of Pistoia.
A story handed down, said that in the first of the ‘900 Family Pacchiani harboured in the garden a monkey, exotic animal very much in vogue among the wealthy families at that time. This monkey was used to mime the attendants and it liked to use the fountain as a wash to clean his precious objects “stolen” around the Villa.
The villa is set on two floors above ground.
The main entrance open on the main living room. The history says that during World War II, this living room had turned into a kind of infirmary, where the wounded soldiers were accommodated. Next to the living room there is the study where guests can easily find a place ideal for working, a room dedicated to the card games, another living room with working fireplace, and a dining table with access to the outdoors. The large kitchen has as well a large fireplace and a wood oven ideal for pizza parties! The kitchen is equipped with all the necessary facilities as dishwasher, oven, slicers. From the kitchen there is the access to the laundry room. Always on the ground floor there are two toilettes.

To delimit the garden there is a gate, the original main entrance to the Villa, where there is a particular bell, which seems to have been identified as the oldest of Pistoia. Past the gate you come to the playground, decorated for our younger guests, and the swimming pool, the point of the greatest interest in the summer. The pool is equipped with sun beds and umbrellas.
