Overview

About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

At first, it all seems too lovely to take in. The Apennine mountains surrounding you are so vast and majestic, you try to inhale some of the peace and absorb a portion of the grandeur. Do all things pale compared to such awe-inspiring landscapes? Most do. But not Villa Gabrielli. You’ll find she’s right at home amongst natural beauty. In fact, she adds to it with rustic grace and quiet elegance. And it doesn’t take long before you sense you’re at home, too.

Villa Gabrielli is situated at the foot of the velvety green mountain, Prato Fiorito, a signature point of interest in the area. As you pass through her distinguished gates, you’ll notice that Villa Gabrielli is perfectly placed over Bagni di Lucca, giving you splendid views of the valley below. A romantic setting full of old-world charm, you’ll be thrilled with the villa’s wood-beamed and terra-cotta tiled ceilings, exquisite windows, shutters and doors made from the finest chestnut, and red-brick fireplace. Discover quite tranquility in any of her spacious bedrooms. If exercise is what you need, work out in the villa’s gym space. Create meals to remember on Villa Gabrielli’s built-in barbecue. Chat over candlelight with good company and good food under the wood gazebo built especially for al fresco dining. And let your cares float away as you lounge alongside the 8 x 4m luxury pool with that book you’ve been meaning to read and a fragrant glass of chianti in hand.

While Villa Gabrielli is a serene place to retreat and recharge, you’ll never be at a loss for activity. The difficulty may be deciding whether you’d like to hike through the widely known canyon of Orrido di Botri, have a massage or facial at the Bagni di Lucca spa just 20 minutes down the mountain, or take a day trip to Lucca, Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano or Cinque Terre.

The spectacular mountains surrounding Villa Gabrielli are ideal for adventurous hikers with a hankering for exploration. With a little bit of luck, you may catch a glimpse of wild boar, deer, jack rabbits, squirrels, or the golden eagle said to nest close to where the villa is located. Nearby you’ll find a grocery shop, 2 bars, a pizzeria and bus service. Beautiful in all seasons, Villa Gabrielli also provides the perfect refuge for skiers in the winter months.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We verbleven met 2 gezinnen 2 weken in Villa Gabrielli. Het is een zeer mooi huis op een fantastische locatie. Alle voorzieningen waren ruimschoots aanwezig.

Op elk moment van de dag kun je een plekje vinden om rustig in de schaduw te relaxen, of lekker zwemmen in het heerlijke zwembad. Mooie streek en als je de weg door rijd (ong 18km ) ben je midden in de natuur waar je een canyon in kunt lopen (Orrido di Botri). Ook de streek rond Volterra (100km) is als dagtrip prima te doen.

Al met al een super vakantie gehad in Bagni di Lucca.

Gina regelt alles ter plekke via mail of telefoon in geval van calamiteiten. Gina dankje, het was leuk je aan het einde van de vakantie nog even te ontmoeten. Ik hoop dat je ons in september mailt over het huis dichter bij Bagni di Lucca.

Groeten Stephan

Family holiday at Villa Gabrielle was enjoyed by all,the house had everything we required and the views were an added bonus although the road to get there was an experience in its self.We all would recommend the Villa Gabrielle ..

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four adults and two children (11 and 13). I can genuinely say that we had a fantastic time. The villa was spacious, clean and well euipped. It was in a quiet location and not overlooked by anyone (apart from the occasional owl!). There was plenty of outdoor space with a good sized pool. We went in August and, although very hot, there was always a nice breeze with the villa being up a hill. The rural location does mean quite a few bugs so go prepared. There's no air con but that was fine (even in 37° heat!), as all the windows and doors have screens to then allow the breeze to circulate.

It's a 10 min drive into town up a fairly steep, windy road and Bagni di Lucca has a couple of supermarkets and a few decent restaurants. The train station is another 5 mins along the road with regular trains to Lucca/Pisa and beyond. There are also beautiful hillside towns just a very scenic drive away. We also went to the Puccini opera festival at Torre di Lago which was a fantastic experience.

We dealt with Laura who always responded quickly to any queries. We couldn't fault the organisation of the booking or the villa itself. Well worth a stay!

Fabulous Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in Villa Gabrielli. The Villa had everything we needed including high chair and baby cot all arranged by Gina and Laura. Three different outside eating areas ensured we could either be in sun or shade. Bedrooms spacious with plenty storage space. We all loved the pool and the kids loved having the swings, chute and trampoline. No neighbours ensured so much privacy. Star gazing on St Lorenzo night rewarded with quite a few shooting stars! Best memory - sitting with family at midnight drinking wine and listening to Nessun Dorma playing overlooking Tuscan countryside. Magical!

5 Stars - Ideal Retreat and so much more

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 8; a mixed bag who all got along famously in this beautiful villa. The location suited us perfectly as we have friends that live close by. But it also made exploring Tuscany easy and convenient. The pool and amenities were great, and the property comfortable.

The Tuscan vacation you've always dreamed of!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible 7 days at Villa Gabrielli!! There were 9 of us, 4 adults, 3 children, and 2 teenagers. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. It has all the amenities you would want and then more. Private fenced garden with inground pool, plenty of space for everyone, the rooms are very well appointed, the same for the living room and the kitchen. The house doesn't have air conditioning but you don't need it at all. We slept with some of the windows open (they have screens) and never felt cold or hot, just perfect. The outdoor area has a gazebo with table and chairs, a barbecue pit, swings, pool chairs, patio furniture, and an outdoor eating area off the kitchen for dining all fresco with a view of the Tuscan mountains, we took full advantage of everything. The house is very near Bagni di Lucca (10 minutes down the hill to town) which we loved. Bagni has everything you need, coffee shops, supermarket, bank, and great restaurants (ask Gina). People were very nice and the town is beautiful. And then there's Gina, our host, she could no be a more excellent host, it's honestly like having a longtime friend help you. She made everything easy and enjoyable. We arrived late at night so when we got to the house our kitchen and fridge were stocked with everything we needed or want, she made sure our time at Villa Gabrielli was something we would remember forever, and we will!! Gina even arranged to have a cake delivered to the house for my son's 6th birthday, Power Rangers and all:)

The house is about 45 minutes to Lucca, 1 hour to Pisa, 1 1/2 hours to Florence, and 1 1/2 to Cique Terre, so we did day trips which were perfect, we actually spent as much time in the house as we did sightseeing, that's how much we loved it. I hope you have the chance to stay at Villa Gabrielli, it will be one of the best vacations you'll ever have!
