Borgo Lucchese is a beautiful little hamlet near Lucca, sleeps 24
Borgo Lucchese is an enchanting and beautifully
restored historic hamlet set in an aristocratic estate of cypress,
magnolia and weeping willow trees, lilied lakes and fountains. Hidden
away in the hills just 10 minutes from the walled city of Lucca, it is a
Tuscan retreat of great charm available for exclusive private rental. Once the hunting lodge of a local Count, it is steeped in history and tradition. Every aristocratic family in Lucca used to own a property in the countryside outside the city walls. Today the estate has been converted into an exclusive Tuscan retreat. This unique Borgo has been restored and equipped with all modern comforts, while at the same time preserving its traditional features of beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, ornate fireplaces and large windows overlooking the surrounding hills and olive groves. Many of the antique pieces belonged to the family who once owned the property.
Borgo Lucchese is the perfect place for special gatherings of family and friends. It is located within walking distance of a local village, which has a restaurant and small shops. The villa is also within easy reach of the Tuscan coast with its many chic beach resorts including the VIP town of Forte dei Marmi with its luxury beach clubs and designer boutique shopping.

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. 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 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
a fully equipped kitchen, beautiful formal dining room, drawing room with fireplace and satellite TV with dual capacity video. Other rooms include those below.
12 luxurious guestrooms (4 of which can either be king or twin bedded
rooms) each with superb en-suite bath and shower facilities (5 with
hydromassage baths), individually temperature controlled heating and
air-con, linked to a central music system and equipped with telephone,
hairdryers, bathrobes and pool towels.
There are several very different outdoor areas including little piazzas, a 17th century
fish pond, which is floodlit at night and fountains where you can sit and dine / snack al fresco.
There is the large lawn with a pretty gazebo and private flood lit pool (18 x 9mts). You can dine next to the wonderful "pescheria" or in the courtyard off the kitchen. There are many magical spaces to enjoy throughout this unique property.
