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" fishpond 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 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 accessed 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.
This sumptuous property is set out in multiple
buildings giving it the atmoshere of a little hamlet. On the ground floor there is
