VILLA AND B&B ON THE PUCCINI LAKE
This art nouveau villa is located by the Massaciuccoli Lake in a splendid position, which allows very easy connections to Lucca, Pisa and the seaside.
Surrounded by exotic gardens, it laps the shores of the lake and boats coming from the Belvedere in Torre del Lago Puccini find suitable mooring. During Summer time guests can enjoy a short cruise on the lake to get to the famous Puccini Theatre to attend operas. The charming boat house is a very nice example of early XXth century Gothic architecture, where rawboats are yet available for romantic boat rides.
The Villa and the entire property of Massaciuccoli lake was purchased by a Florentine noble family as their private game reserve. Maestro Puccini was “pinched” while hunting without permission . Then the Marquis and Giacomo Puccini became close friends and Puccini composed part of the Boheme while at the villa and dedicated it to the present owners great-grandmother. The piano and a picture of Puccini during one of his visits is still conserved in the villa main hall.

The villa gained authorization for civil weddings by the local townhall of Massarosa. The couple will be able to hold both ceremony and reception in the villa. From 2014 the villa will not only offer its gardens as setting for the wedding celebration and party, but also the piano nobile in the main villa building.
