Details

Embedded against a white marble hill above Lucca, the extraordinary contemporary villa is surrounded by 10 hectares of olive groves and woodland.

The rock protrudes into the indoor spaces eliminating the barriers between the indoors and the surrounding nature. The wide floor to ceiling windows allow in plenty of natural light and offer guests a 180 degree panoramic view of the valley and Lucca beneath.
The iron shutters shade in the summer to protect against the strong summer light and instead absorb the light in winter.

The all-white decor chosen by the architects to decorate the interiors are stricken by the imposing spiral staircase painted inside in bright red, like a dazzling evening dress.

The property is divided into a main villa and a guest house with a total capacity of up to 12 guests. There are 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in addition to a sitting room with a sofa bed.

BEDROOM CONFIGURATION - MAIN HOUSE
Four double bedrooms en-suite (3 with shower and one with shower+bathtub).
One additional room with a sofa bed (140x200cm), ideal for two kids or one adult.
(One bedrooms in on the ground floor, the remaining three are located on the first floor).

BEDROOM CONFIGURATION - GUEST HOUSE
Two double bedrooms. One shared bathroom.


Almost everything in and around the property has been designed and built custom-made by Michel and Donia, from lamps and furniture to sculptures.

The most impressive feature of the house is the roof.
The two wings of the roof of the villa open at a 30° angle like the wings of a butterfly, hence the name to the house "Casa Farfalla" or Butterfly House. When open, the two wings measure 110 square meters and open thanks to 6 pistons. This is the first house in the world with a hydraulic roof. This allows natural ventilation to cool the house and provides guests with the magical sensation of sleeping under the stars literally.

Ecological Architecture - Green Credentials:
The villa has been awarded one of the most ecological and exceptional homes in Italy by TV channel "National Geographic" on the show "Case piu' verdi d'Italia" (Greenest homes in Italy).
