Description from the manager
Located just seven kilometers from Lucca, this is an elegant and richly decorated 18th century villa. It has its own chapel and is set in the midst of a very impressive and historic vineyard estate once owned by Count Cesare Sardi. The personality of the villa, however, remains unchanged, maintaining its authentic charm with beamed ceilings, frescoed walls decorated with a typical Lucchese tapestry and portraits of family ancestors.
Lucca Nobile rents from SATURDAY to SATURDAY.
The villa is a perfect blend of old world charm and modern day living. It offers a great variety of up to date services, such as wireless Internet, air con...ditioning and satellite TV. An arrival dinner is included (vegetarian lasagna, cheese, vegetable tart, salad, dessert). And finally, a breakfast is included Monday through Saturday!
Lucca Nobile is set on a 32 acre family owned vineyard estate in the peaceful hills surrounding Lucca. The villa is a superb example of traditional Lucchese architecture and, following this tradition, has three floors and a classical Italian style garden which is 2.5 acres in size. Located just outside of the property is a small chapel that was, historically, the chapel of the villa and the neighboring borgo. Mass is celebrated here every Sunday at 9am. There are also some farmhouses on the large estate behind the villa where the vineyard workers live.
The private garden is filled with a variety of trees indigenous to the area as well as fragrant plants and roses. There are several furnished outdoor areas for relaxing and dining al fresco. Comfortable deck chairs and sun loungers can be found near the swimming pool, which is located in a pleasant panoramic position. There is also a barbecue for guests' use.
The villa is spacious at 500 square meters and develops on three floors. It comfortably accommodates 14 people in 8 bedrooms--all of which are air conditioned--and 6 bathrooms. There is also central heat throughout the villa.
It is possible to rent the villa for a group of 10 or less for a reduced rate--please contact us. In this case, the ground floor of the villa will not be available.
The villa can be rented for smaller groups (up to 10 people) without the ground floor apartment, which has its own entrance from the rear of the house. In this case the owner or staff (2 person maximum) may use the ground floor apartment. However, this does not affect the privacy of our guests and we guarantee that the garden and pool ground are at the EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE GUESTS.
