Property's history


Villa Pedone was built at the end of the 18th century by Baron Michele Dei Rivieri. He was an important land owner and rice producer from Asti (in the Piemonte region); his dream was to own an olive groves so he could produce olive oil, but this type of tree did not grow in northern Italy, therefore he chose Tuscany as his destination and that is how he fell in love with this hillside.

After he built this villa and planted the olive groves and due to the beautiful climate, he decided to live here all year round, going less and less back to Piemonte.

The Baron died in 1830 and his son who inherited the estate, decided to plant vineyards for the production of wine; his father had always been against this, because his brother had died in a wine cellar in Piemonte, from the poisonous fumes emanated by the must.

In 1880 the villa was sold to Mr. Favilla, a great textile merchant, who decided to increment the wine production in order to take a part of it to the Orient, during his business trips. The Asians loved Italian wine and Mr. Favilla used to serve it during business lunches, so when everyone was finally drunk he was able to close the best deals. He also started up a small production of Vin Santo (dessert wine), which he sold to the Vatican Cardinals, who are renowned for their excellent taste.

In 1930 the estate was bought by my grandfather, Biagio Pedone, who gave the present name to the villa. He commissioned the restoration of it to a renowned architect at the time, from Milan; however, during the second world war, from a nearby villa, someone opened fire on a German jeep, while it was passing by on the road below. The Germans, thinking that the shooting came from Villa Pedone, opened fire on the front of the villa, devastating the façade and it’s interior. It is still possible to see the bullet holes left by the machine-guns in the main entrance gate. And so my grandfather had to restore the villa once more.
Mr. Pedone also loved wine, therefore he bought two farms bordering the estate, in order to increase the production and created his first label, called ‘Topo Topo’, which was served in all of the most important wine shops in Lucca at the time.

In 1927 my mother was born. I grew up in the villa and lived there until 1995, when I got married. My parents kept on living there until the year 2000.

In 2002 I decided to renovate the estate in order to start this activity and to give the possibility to all of those who rent the villa to spend an unforgettable holiday and savour the history and beauty of this place.

Inside the property


The villa is set on 3 floors (ground floor, first floor and second floor), it is fully furnished, and although the furnishing is antique, it has all the modern comforts. On the ground floor there is a main hall, a dining room, a game room with mini bar (for playing cards etc.), a comfortable living room with a satelite TV, Computer/internet and a stereo Cd. The kitchen is fully equipped, also with washing machine and tumble drier, and has direct access to the garden on the side where the swimming pool and out side dining area are.
There are 8 bedrooms, 4 on each floor, 4 double and 4 with two single beds. The view from the windows are of the garden and countryside.

Outside the property


The garden surrounding the property is delimited by a 2m high wall, which surrounds three sides of the villa. The fourth side is delimited by a low fence to enable the view of the lower hills, of vinyards and olive groves, the swimming pool, with deck chairs, and the out-door dining area are on this side, therefore you are able to have a beautiful view of the countryside while dining and swimming. The front of the property, accessible from a steel gate, has a parking space of 8 cars. The Italian style garden is partly in grass and partly in pebble stones. The villa's façade is dominated by a palm tree.

About the area


The property is in San Concordio di Moriano, a small village in the countryside, 7km from Lucca city center. It is an area renown for wine and olive oil production, infact the villa is surrounded by ancient olive groves and vineyards. It is also an historic area where once all the noble families built their summer estates to escape the heat and show off their wealth. Although it might seem like an isolated area, the village center is only 2km away, where it is possible to find a minimarket and a supermarket at 3km.
