San Lorenzo a Vaccoli Villa Rental Photos and Description

12 Bedrooms, 16.0 Bathrooms, 22 Sleeps

Once a medieval village, the twelve-bedroom, fully restored Villa Lucchese offers the luxury of a hotel in the privacy of a home. Enjoy the manicured grounds, face off against family and friends at tennis or golf, take a quiet moment for a spa treatment or organize a cooking class for the whole group. As its name implies, the villa is conveniently located only 4 miles from the center of Lucca.

The villa is set on an aristocratic estate featuring cypress, magnolia and weeping willows, with views of olive groves and the surrounding hills. Swim day or night in the floodlit pool, meditate by the 17th-century fountain, while away the afternoon in the reading room, and dine al fresco by the outdoor barbecue. Active guests will want to take a spin on the mountain bikes or work up a sweat in the gym. For entertainment, theres Wi-Fi, satellite TV, and rooms for a piano, cards and billiards.

Inside, Villa Lucchese is refined and elegant, with traditional beamed ceilings and cotto floors accented by Persian-style rugs, gold and crystal chandeliers and sconces and marble-topped tables. Multiple living rooms ensure theres space to spread out, while a formal dining room can seat everyone at once. The fully equipped, professional-grade kitchen is spacious enough for a cooking lesson or a wine and cheese tasting.

Each of the villas twelve bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, temperature control, hairdryer and bathrobes, and a view of the surrounding countryside. There are eight bedrooms with queen beds, and four bedrooms with two twin beds each, which can be converted to king beds. Four of the queen bedrooms and one of the twin bedrooms have Jacuzzis in their en-suite bathrooms.

Whether you want to see Tuscanys cities or countryside, Villa Lucchese is perfectly situated. Lucca is 4 miles away, Pisa is 18 miles away, Forte dei Marmi and beaches are 23 miles away, and Florence is 47 miles away. Guests have access to a nearby private tennis club and several 18-hole golf courses.

The historic town of Lucca features many attractions and unlimited historic charm. Take a stroll or rent a bicycle and ride through the town past famous monuments, ancient walls, several churches and the Guinigi Tower, which has trees planted at the top. In the town's cathedral is a small chapel containing the famous "volto santo" cross of Lucca. Every September 14th, the huge procession of Santa Croce fills the streets of Lucca to commemorate the date when the cross was first brought to the town. Tourists from all over the world come to enjoy this annual local tradition. Make sure to visit the church of Saint Michele, and then enjoy cappuccino in Saint Michele square. And don't miss shopping along the Via Fillungo! There is something interesting to discover around every corner of Lucca.

North of Lucca, the famous Garfagnana Valley extends for miles, a splendid natural vista of mountains and hills. Along the way, stop at the famous "Devil's Bridge"legend says the Devil himself has visited this spot. A huge Halloween celebration is held here every year. In Pisa, the famous Leaning Tower awaits: a must for all who come to Italy. Nearby Forte Dei Marmi is one of the most popular places in Italy during the summer, boasting a beautiful beach, elegant shops and boutiques, and active nightlife of bars and discos like La Capannina and the Twiga Club.

Luxury Retreats was the right choice!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone we dealt with at Luxury Retreats were true professionals. From our initial sales person to our concierge right through to the 24/7 team who helped us retrieve our lost luggage, we received personal, professional, courteous service. This really helped since we were traveling with a family group of 23. The moment we arrived, we were greeted by a Luxury Retreats representative who introduced us to our villa manager. From there, we were given a tour of our beautiful villa. We knew our villa would be nice, but nothing prepared us for how truly spectacular it was. Situated just south of the Lucca city center, it was built for nobility. The villa was immaculate and impeccably remodeled, staying true to its Tuscan origin. The staff was fantastic! Isabella, our chef, and her assistants made us the most incredible meals. Sometimes we ate in the huge, formal dining room and other times we ate al fresco by the fountains. The entire experience was breathtaking and we hope to visit again.
