Villa Farfalla
This extraordinary property is located in the first hills around Lucca. This dream place is a laboratory, a place of experimentation and meditation for the owners, Michel Boucquillon & Donia Maaoui, both architects, artist and designer for the most famous Italian Companies.
The panoramic view from the Villa is extraordinary.  You can perceive the entire city of Lucca and its walls. The property consists of 10 hectares of olive groves and woods located on the nearest Lucca hills, 200 meters above the city,  just at 10 minutes. An helicopter landing area is also available upon request on the property.
The Villa, the guest house and the Pool are real jewels of contemporary architecture and technology immersed in the Tuscan nature.
Both buildings are clinging on a hill of white marble like the one of Carrara located nearby.
The Architecture of the two properties is very bright and transparent. It is thought in total harmony with nature which is omnipresent. Another feature, the iron shutters that shade in summer and catch the light deeply in winter.
Sculptures from the wife Donia Maaoui are exposed inside and outside both properties.
The interior is organized around a spectacular staircase represented as a red dazzling evening dress. Rock of white marble is present in the house and appears on the three floors. Architecture, furniture, lamps, sculptures, almost everything has been conceived, designed and custom made for the villa by their owners.
The Hydraulic roof
The two wings of the roof of the villa open at a 30 ° angle like the wings of a butterfly. The two wings totaling 110 square meters open with 6 pistons. This is the first house in the world with a hydraulic roof. This allows natural ventilation to cool the house and brings to the villa a very unique magic sensation of literally sleeping under the stars.
Ecological Architecture
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 verde d'Italia". 
The pool
The pool is overflowing, it has an area of ​​70 square meters, is 26 meters long and has a depth of 1.20 meters .
