Fabulous Borgo Lucchese is located just outside the walled town of Lucca. It is made up of a series of buildings including what was originally a chapel, that originally serviced the owner's large traditional style Italian Villa that sits just above it.
The main Villa has beautifully kept formal gardens to the front that are open to guests staying here and form part of the large grounds. There are two courtyards that can be used for "al fresco" dining, one just next to the kitchen and the other next to the beautiful "pescheria" complete with fountains.
The property is set in the countryside and is just off a country lane and accessed through a private entrance gate. Some of the buildings are rendered and are a lovely salmon pink colour and the other buildings are in stone. They have all been recently restored to an extremely high standard with great care and attention to every detail. They have luxurious soft furnishings and every modern comfort.
The garden is through a lovely arched walkway in the centre of the stone building, which was originally the chapel and has a gravel area with covered gazebo for shade and then extends into a large lawn with the pool being located at the top end of the large walled garden.
Borgo Lucchese is an ideal base from which to discover the many delights of Tuscany. The medieval walled town of LUCCA is a 10 minute drive away – the small city is very easy to get around and discover for yourself or guided tours can be arranged
The Leaning Tower of Pisa (30 minutes away) has recently opened to the public – it is stunningly set in an open lawned piazza which also houses the Cathedral, Baptistery and Campo Santo Cemetery. A 40 minute drive will take you to the little port and town of Lerici overlooked by a cliff top castle from where boats leave every hour to Portovenere and the World
Heritage site of the Cinque Terre, five dramatically cliff clinging villages. Renaissance Florence is just an hour away, either by train or car.
Siena is an hour and a half away with possible stops on the way to San Gigmignano and Monteriggioni, as is Chianti where you can arrange a wine-tasting at one of the many vineyards. For those interested in art and sculpture there are the impressive marble quarries of Carrara as well as the sculpture town of Pietrasanta. Forte dei Marmi is a lively beach stop with some great shopping as you join the masses in the early evening stroll through the town.
