Villa Daria is an elegant, luxury villa near Lucca, sleeps 14
Villa Daria, originally a hunting lodge, dates back to the 16th Century. Owned by various families over the centuries, including more recently the family behind a well known cosmetics empire, it was once a working estate. The owners bought the Villa in 1999 and began the process of complete renovation and modernisation. Nestled inside its own walled grounds, Villa Daria is set amongst olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees in the foothills to the north of Lucca. The nearest village is Santa Alessio and Lucca is just a 10 minute drive away. Villa Daria offers guests beautiful scenery combined with the variety and convenience of Lucca.

There is a children's play area within the garden and a fabulous private salt water pool as well as very large well maintained grounds. For tennis lovers there is the use of a private tennis court within the grounds.
Villa Daria is just 1km to a local village for amenities and a short drive from Lucca (7km) with its bustlings piazzas, great shopping and unique walled city. The Tuscan coast is also within easy reach, with its many chic resorts that are wonderful for a day trip to the beach.
