Relais Lalla, Camaiore - Lucca

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms 6 people Private Pool 0 - no reviews - no reviews 0

This villa is an art-lover’s dream. It was previously owned by the wife of David Douglas Duncan, the official photographer of Pablo Picasso. Relais Lalla is positioned just 5km from Pietrasanta, a city renowned for its galleries and exhibitions, and where Michelangelo came to select the best blocks of marble for his sculptures. The villa is located in Camaiore and is only a 15 minute drive from the coast. A set of sculptures decorate the garden, while the interior boasts a selection of paintings and distinguished furniture. A large terrace is situated on a raised level lined with terracotta tiles, and furnished with a table and chairs. There are also outdoor sofas with a coffee table, so the area is ideal for both dining and lounging in the sun. A second terrace is situated under a pergola, and the garden is arranged with elegant potted plants, roses and stretches of lush lawn.

The villa is constructed on the side of a hill from Tuscan stone, with wood and stone interiors and unique pastoral designs. The rooms have high ceilings, comfortable furniture and an effortless warm and homely atmosphere. They each have excellent views of the gardens and countryside which encircle the villa. A cottage on site houses another bedroom, kitchen and dining area. A quaint wooden summer house in the garden is home to a sauna, for an extra dose of luxury.

Our Thoughts
Since it was once owned by Pablo Picasso’s official photographer, it’s no surprise that Relais Lalla is one of the most aesthetically pleasing villas on our books. Both inside and out, its designs are uncluttered, but they radiate class, comfort and sophistication. One of the highlights of the property is the den on the lower ground floor – a cosy set of rooms perfect for lounging after a day’s sightseeing. Despite this floor being below the ground, there are windows at the very top of the room to let in daylight, it doesn’t feel stuffy or cramped. A fantastic destination.
