Why Rod and Caroline Swail chose Bagni di Lucca
The view! Looking down onto the river and the old stone bridge, with the surrounding hills is an amazing view . It's a view we never tire of as it's always changing; every day the water level, movement and light is different, but always beautiful. The town of Bagni di Lucca is a charming place, beautiful scenery and a lovely, easy and relaxing atmosphere. It's a great place to unwind.
What makes this villa unique
Whilst other properties had views, or were large, we knew this particular combination was fairly unique: a large villa with an amazing view yet within easy walking distance of bars and restaurants. When we are on holiday we don't want to always have to drive home after a meal, a leisurely stroll along the river is far nicer! It was unusual to find somewhere so close to town yet with a superb view and outside space. We knew this villa was special, a magical combination, and we love to share this with our guests.
Guestbook comments from the owner
A fantastic stay in a charming town in a wonderful house full of charm and good atmosphere. Hospitable and helpful hosts who did everything so that we might feel comfortable and have a good time. It was with sadness we have to leave, but we are looking forward to come back. And we would definitely recommend Villa Toscany Rosalena to everyone. We were a family of ten people, from 2 years and up to 60 +, and the place was great for all of us. Several different common areas we could use both indoors and outdoors. Toys and games for the little kids, and we adults had fun in the pool even if it was not very large. The kitchen was well equipped and gave us the opportunity to create superb dinner dishes. The barbeque space was a cool oasis with trees that umbrella by day and fireflies danced around in the evening which made the atmosphere magical.
The rooms were large and cool, spacious and with enchanting views. Newly renovated in every room.
