This villa is a 16th century house, originally belonging to the Buonvisi family and it is part of the Fattoria Mansi Bernardini estate. In recent years, restoration work has been done, without detracting from the original character of the house. The ancient cotto floors, beamed ceilings and old fireplaces have all been preserved. The rooms are spacious and very light and tastefully furnished with antiques. In the huge kitchen, there is a beautiful big fireplace, thus making Buonvisi suitable and comfortable also for winter holidays. The property also has a particularly large, flat garden on three sides of the villa, with several shaded areas. To the front of the villa there is the swimming pool with views over the plain of Lucca below. The house has satellite TV, DVD and hi-fi system. The maid who takes care of the villa is also an excellent cook and on request will cook local dishes for clients. A tennis court is available on the estate. The office of Fattoria Mansi Bernardini, with English speaking staff, is at clients' disposal to give assistance.
Ground Floor: Entrance; large kitchen with fireplace; sitting room with fireplace, library with fireplace, double bedroom with bathroom en-suite. First Floor: 2 twin bedrooms with bathroom en-suite and 4 double bedrooms with bathroom en-suite; laundry room.
Our trip was fantastic. The villa was perfect and amazing. All of us, including family and friends were shocked at how wonderful the house and grounds were. The people were great too. We really enjoyed our time. The downside was that we only booked one week. All of us would have liked to stay another!
