Villa Amore is set on the slopes of the hills between the beautiful towns of Montecatini and Lucca, right outside the town Capannori which has a few different restaurants, grocery stores and shops serving up local specialties.  It is literally a five minute walk into town, however you would never know the town was right there, considering all you see are the lavish gardens, gorgeous vineyards and olive groves which surround the property.  

Villa Amore is the perfect facility for groups and has some unique features like an independent Yoga Studio and large kitchen which makes for an ideal setting to host cooking experiences or prepare banquets which have been held at the property for centuries.  

The numerous bedrooms also offer the possibility of having twin beds or full queen/king beds depending on the needs of the group. 

The property enjoys peace and quiet and a beautiful view of the countryside: essential ingredients for a totally relaxing stay. This enchanting property preserves all the charm and character of a historic residence with its antique furniture, frescoed walls and large Italian garden overlooking the splendid panorama of the surrounding countryside.
 
The villa has 15 bedrooms, with various bedding configurations which are frescoed and luxuriously furnished with period pieces.  The rooms are large and airy and overlook the Italian garden.
 
All the rooms have heating and air conditioning which can be regulated individually in each room, a mosquito net, safe, free wireless Internet connection, fridge bar, TV with CD player and satellite channel reception. A hairdryer is provided in every bathroom. Mosquito screens are fitted to all windows.
 
All the linens are provided to each group, including robe, swimming towel and terry towel slippers is available for all guests.  All the rooms can be reached both by a comfortable lift and by easy stairs.
 
History of the Property:
 
In 1649 the local aristocrat Alessandro Massei bought the Villa from the Santucci family in a public auction. The Villa was not in a good state and between 1650 and 1656 much restoration and improvement was carried out on the building to render it a fitting holiday residence for a noble family of Lucca.
 
In 1695 the Villa was inherited by Bianca Teresa Massei, wife of Buonviso Buonvisi, but two years later the noblewoman sold it to the wealthy merchant Giovan Andrea Guidotti. The historical archives of Lucca reveal that in 1843 the Villa was among the properties of the Guidotti family. The archives describe it as a four story building, every story decorated with racemes, amphoras, chandeliers and landscape paintings: all decorative elements typical of the restored villas of the Lucca area during the period of the principality of Elisa Bonaparte. The exterior part of the property consisted of: land, an oratory, a lemon house, and a split-level garden which can still be admired today. The Guidotti family did not have direct heirs and the Villa was inherited by Sinibaldo Sinibaldi. In 1866 the counts Guinigi bought the whole estate from the Sinibaldi family and donated it to the Cappuccini monks, who had been stripped of their property due to the laws for the secularisation of ecclesiastic assets.
 
The monks described the Villa as ''frescoed, very well furnished and rich in lemon trees''. They subsequently carried out some modifications which were useful to their religious life and created a cloistered seminary for teaching. In just a few years the number of monks and of students quickly increased and in 1903 an adjacent building was constructed to serve as a dormitory, kitchen and study / recreation rooms. The oratory was extended and converted into a church which was also open to the local population. In 1929 another wing was built adjacent to the church and was used exclusively as classrooms. At the end of the 20th century vocations diminished and the monastery closed.
 
In 1995 the estate was bought by the Grossi/Cervelli family. They embarked on some major consolidation and restoration work, thanks to which the frescoes were brought back to light and the villa, lemon house and Italian garden returned to their former splendor.
 
You can see a few of our recent videos below. The first one is of the estate outside itself.  Please note, we use to call the property Villa Danillo, but we hae since changed the name to Villa Amore!

Client Testimonials

In September of 2018 I brought a group of 12 from Venice to Sicily and organized all of my services with the Italy Vacation Specialists. Being a travel agent and in the business, I know how complicated organizing travel arrangements can be in Italy and the IVS team took a huge burden off of me! I would like to start of by saying "THANK YOU" both for the amazing job you did on our trip. There was not one complaint from anybody. All of our transfers, drivers and guides were right on time. This is why we have 3 more groups to send you for 2019 and really looking forward to working with you again!
