Holiday rental apt in historical Villa
Villa Talenti stands on a hillside in the elegant and unspoiled historic spa town of Bagni di Lucca. The residence is set magnificently within the splendid green and tranquil Tuscan countryside. Villa Talenti is only 50 meters from Terme Bagni Caldi, the famous thermal baths dating back to the Etruscan and Roman ages, and a romantic path takes you on a 5 minute walk to the piazza in Ponte a Serraglio.
The villa is named after the Tuscan family Talenti, that lived there for centuries and dates back to 1740 when the Bagni Caldi, the thermal springs, were at their heights of fame. Bagni Caldi has always been a popular destination for many illustrious visitors, from Pascoli to Shelley, Lord Byron to Puccini and Napoleon, Tsar Demidoff, Couperus to Henry James. Often they stayed in this healthy environment for weeks on end.
The villa has gone through a 5 year ground up restoration, retaining all the original features while featuring modern wiring, plumbing and central heating.
The piazza in Ponte a Serraglio, with restaurants, a gelateria, bars, shops and art galleries are all only a few minutes walk from the house. The nearest supermarket is 1.5 km away.
Villa Talenti sets the stage for tranquillity and serenity during your stay in Bagni di Lucca and is a good starting point for beautiful touristics trips.
Villa Talenti is located in a ideal position to reach the Garfagnana mountains, reknowned for its white marble sources. It is 20 km from the medieval city of Lucca, the Versilia coast, the Cinque Terre and major cultural cities like Florence, Pisa and Siena.
Villa Talenti is divided into four delightful apartments with capacities ranging from 2 to 6 persons, recently renovated and furnished to create a warm and authentic Tuscan atmosphere.
