Villa Raffaelli was a medieval fortress from the year 1000 until in 1582 when it became a magnificent villa and the country home of the Raffaellis, a nobile family from Lucca. Most of the 800 sqm villa was restored around 2010 and at the moment it is composed of 6 bedrooms which depict the original style with four-poster beds and 4 bathrooms, a library, a music room, sitting rooms and kitchens.
