Lucca Villa Rental Photos and Description
When you wake up in the morning and find yourself lying beneath a gorgeous antique canopy bed, you might think you're still dreaming—maybe even sleep-walking, because as you get up and wander through the house, you find yourself in a magnificent Tuscan villa rental, with authentic period furniture, chandeliers, and your own housekeeper! But don't pinch yourself; instead, step outside of this villa in Tuscany for a breath of fresh air as you walk through verdant walled gardens filled with trees and flowers. Still not awake? Bike into nearby Lucca, one of Italy's finest medieval cities-- just a short distance from this villa rental in Tuscany, Italy.
The villa dates back to the 17th and 18th centuries. Situated outside the walled city of Lucca in a residential area with other villas and houses nearby, this villa has a large front garden full of flowers, fruit trees, and potted lemon trees. The garden is surrounded by an old garden wall, keeping it nicely secluded from the outside world. This villa has been in the same family since it was built. The owner, an artist, manufactures old lucchesi silk fabrics used as house decorations. Her studio is located in the lemon-house (la limonaia), an annex next to the villa. The well maintained villa features terracotta tiled floors and frescoed rooms. Antique furniture and refined upholstery and decoration make the villa elegant and charming, a special stay for art lovers. The private swimming pool is 8.5m in diameter. Two very friendly dogs and one cat live on the property.
