Welcome to Villa Guinigi

The apartment living room is very inviting furnished in traditional Tuscan Lucchese style, over looking a private garden with teak table for outside dining with a panorama view of the Lucca area. The apartment is fully equipped with modern comforts including a 21 inch TV, DVD player, stereo, telephone, and DSL connection. The kitchen has beautiful finishes with stone counters, dishwasher, washer and dryer combo, full size refrigerator and freezer and all cooking equipment. A visit to Villa Guinigi will be a splendid way to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The sitting room is separated from the sleeping area by a passage equipped with a wardrobe that covers the entire wall close to the bathroom with shower facing the two bedrooms, the mail with a Queen size bed and the other with two single beds that could be combined. Both are furnished in traditional style Tuscan wrought iron beds and furnishings.

It was absolutely brilliant

  • 5 of 5

The reservation process went very smoothly. The owner reacted very quickly (within hours) and he really made some extra effort by emailing tips and todo's. When we arrived the scene and setting was more then I expected. The appartments are beautifull and very clean and neat. The people at the complex are very nice, helpfull and really take care of everything. So an absolute reccomendation from Holland. Thanks you Gene for the perfect holiday accommodation. With a very warm regard, Renske and Maik
