Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday apartment in Lucca - Il Giardino Segreto

6 bedrooms, 4 baths (sleeps 10)

7/10 People in the heart of Lucca Historic centre.

The building was constructed in 1668 for Giovanni Controni. It was then purchased by the Massoni family, during the first half of the XIXth century.

The private garden is especially evocative and still has the original 1600's aspect. Four flowerbeds form as many panels, bordered by small ornate, low walls, decorated in a grotesque style, with cobbled mosaics, brickworks and numerous marble masques of excellent craftsmanship. These decorations continue also in the pond, which is set onto the 3 walls that compose the garden's perimeter, closed on the west side by the building's rear-facade. Within the composition are formed two orthogonal and four lateral paths, where an array of masks and plants protrude from the flowerbeds. In axis with the building's front door, on the frontal wall there is a small grotto with a fountain, shaped by a marble female figure, two eagles and a rectangular pond, with the family coat of arms held up by two statues of dogs.

About Debora Del Sonno

Hi, this is Debora from Lucca. I was born in this city 45 years ago and have been living here ever since...

First of all I want you to learn that I am not the onwer but the property manager.

After a degree in business and economics and a long experience in my family company (coffee industry), I'm now happily running my holiday rental agency and dealing everyday with a lot of people from all over the world.

… You could start from visiting my webiste luccaholidayhomes

I rent apartments, country-houses and villas in Lucca and it's surrounding area, with a special attention towards the historical center, within the beautidul city walls.

I personally select all my properties and I'm very proud of my wide range of unique and self-catered properties, which I think are perfect for a great and comfortable stay... All the apartment I deal with are stylish and furnished with tuscan charm and provided with all the modern comfort. I have slept at least two nights in all of them to better understand what works and what does not work... So I perfectly know all my properties! Ask me how many knives in the kitchen drawes or where you can find a bottle opener… I know it!! I provide a very detailed customize assistance from arrival to departure. I really try to do my best to let you feel at home even though far from Home… and let you have a very pleasant and troubles- free stay.

I can also suggest you what to do, where to go and what to visit … not to miss those less turistic places but which will increase the value of your holiday here in Lucca. North of Tuscany is not only Florence and the leaning Tower in Pisa... there is much more! Contact me and explaine me what you are exactly looking for.

Keep in mind that the more details I know about what you are looking for.. and the easier it will be for me to advise most suitable place for you.… but please don t forget that the “perfect villa” does not exist.. neither at home! :-))

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Debora Del Sonno purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Debora Del Sonno chose Lucca

This is really UNIQUE. This is a very antique building where all the original main architectonic features have been preserved and maintained. The building and the garden stay under the protection of the Fine Art Laws.. which in italy are very rigid .. to let you understand how beautiful and important is.. once a year, over a weekend usually in may the garden must stay open to everybody to visit and discover it!! Staying here means making a step behind to the past.. nowadays you cannot find nothing so large and spacious with such a beautiful furniture!! really suggestive.

What makes this apartment unique

A real PRIVATE garden in the middle of the historic centre. Nothing can be more luxurious!!

Very well located in the heart of Lucca Historic centre. few steps from groceries, cafe for breakfast, bakery for bread and focaccia. The famous Guinigi Tower is really 10 steps away.

The Train station is 10 minutes walking .. as well as the Access to promenade on the top of the city's walls… But the apartment and the garden is so beautiful that you will not going out at all!! :)
