Description


Welcome to Villa Bocso, a beautiful 6-bedroom property built in the 17th century near the medieval town of Lucca, Tuscany. A secluded and private space by virtue of the enclosing wall, the property is a perfect example of the local architecture. The internal layout of the property is typical of its time, with a symmetrical distribution of rooms surrounding a central salon as well as a noble floor on the upper level.

You and your guests will be spellbound by the attractions and limitless history of the town of Lucca. Take a wander or rent a bicycle along the city's ancient walls, then down through its narrow streets, stopping to admire the charming churches, famous monuments and the Guingi Tower, famed for having trees planted on top of it. The beautiful church of Saint Michele is well worth a visit, and while you are there, why not sit down and enjoy a cappuccino in Saint Michele square and watch the locals leisurely go about their day. Shopping along Via Fillungo should also not be missed.

Heading north from Lucca, the spectacular Garfagnana Valley is certainly worth the drive to take in the miles of unspoiled rolling mountains and lush green hills. On the way, be sure to visit the famous "Devil's Bridge", a spot that many legends say was once visited by the Devil himself. Each autumn, it plays host to a huge Halloween celebration.

To the south, the city of Pisa, rich in history and architecture and its famous Leaning Tower awaits. Described as many as one of the wonders of the world, no trip to Italy would be complete without marvelling at this well-known sight. One of the Tuscany tours not to be missed is the walk-around this exciting city; it will help you skip some of the lengthy queues and experience all of the highlights. Despite the villa being located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, the popular beach spot of Forte Dei Marmi, one of the most popular places to beat the heat in Italy during the summer, is a mere 40-minute drive away. Known for its incredible beach, luxury boutiques and shops, as well as buzzing nightlife, it is the quintessential Italian getaway spot.

A cypress-lined boulevard leads up to the villa's traditional exterior, which blends beautifully with the surrounding oaks, the rich scent of the surrounding lime trees and magnolia permeating on the warm breeze. A romantic style swimming pool is encompassed by an exceptionally manicured lawn. The pool-side stylish sun loungers offer a peaceful spot to unwind after a long day of adventuring to work on your suntan. Tendrils of bougainvillaea trail from the romantic pergola, perfectly framing the surrounding mountainside. Ideal for dining al fresco, why not have our concierge service organize a cooking class for you and your family or friends to master some of the local cuisines before sharing a delicious bottle of local wine on the terrace.

The villa's interior is decorated with valuable antiques as well as rich fabric and furnishings, imparting a sense of style and comfort. The stunning sitting room, complete with plush sofas and grand piano, is an elegant space for your guests to relax. The use of ornate wood furniture and the central chandelier creates an atmosphere of grandeur. A spacious dining room leads out directly onto the villa's outdoor patio. The cosy, traditional kitchen includes a small dining area for you to sip your morning coffee before setting off on the day’s excursions. Upstairs, separate living spaces and an office are available for your guests to have some independence and privacy without feeling cut off from the rest of the house. A spacious central salon on this floor, complete with a home theatre TV is ideal for the younger guests to settle in on the evenings the weather doesn't cooperate.

Perfect for larger groups, Villa Bosco provides ample living space for a group of friends or family looking to experience a sense of Italian glamour. Complete with several house staff to ensure your every comfort, a stay at this property is sure to create memories of a lifetime.
