Villa Marianna is a magnificent property set in a landscape of vineyards, olive groves and acacia woods just outside of Lucca. Located in beautiful countryside and set amongst the vineyards of Vicopelago, a small village just 3km south of Lucca, this prestigious area is well known for its many 15th and 16th century villas of wealthy Lucchese families, who built their country houses in this area because of its natural beauty. The villa itself dates back to the 15th century and the estate is believed to have been used as a hunting lodge at the end of the 1800’s. It was bought by a well-known family of Lucchese merchants and the villa took their family name. It now provides luxury accommodation for holidays and is perfect for special occasions.
Villa Marianna is a perfect base to enjoy Lucca with its boutique shopping, bustling piazzas, cafes and restaurants and to explore the Tuscan coast (30 mins drive). Lucca - 3.7 km, Viareggio - 31 km, Pisa 36 kms

The villa SPA is laid out over 200 square meters and is divided into four rooms in a refined but welcoming space. Natural wood ceilings, natural materials and soft colors create a precious refuge in the house.
Guests can enjoy a Turkish bath, sauna, cold mist shower scented with eucalyptus, an exhilarating ice fall, or the relaxation area with salt wall.
The Salt wall is made up of rock salt bricks that allow the release of trace elements into the air at a temperature of about 30 degrees and humidity of about 40%, encouraging relaxation and physical wellbeing.
In the SPA guests have the opportunity to choose different paths to physical wellbeing - with a unique sensory journey where even taste sensations are not forgotten. Each path is characterized by a change in ambient using steam, soft breeze, sauna, cold reactions and pure relax. The leisurely journey is accompanied not only by changes in sound, light, color and fragrance but also with a range of infusions, herbal teas and fresh fruit
It’s possible to choose from these four pathways:
RELAX (BLUE) to melt away the stress with an infusion of lemon balm and fresh fruit such as blueberries or plums.
TONIC (GREEN) to recharge the body with an infusion of mint and fresh fruit such as kiwi or green apple.
PURIFY (YELLOW) to find balance with an infusion of fennel and fresh fruit such as pineapple, peach or apricot.
EXCITE (RED) to recover vigor with an infusion of blood orange and fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, red apple, cherries and orange.
