A Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Villa Moscheni proved to be the perfect spot to host a large family reunion in Italy. With different arrivals and departures we were a group as small as 8 and as large as 19. The house was perfect for both the small and the large groups.

The listing accurately describes the villa layout and location but I think the photos on the site don't really reflect how beautiful and comfortable the villa truly is. The large balcony overlooking the gardens and attached to the main kitchen was wonderful for our large family dinners. The pool area, looking out to the surrounding hills was beautiful. The nicely equipped gym was used extensively. The bedrooms, as well as the entire villa, were comfortably appointed and the attention to preserving the beautiful antique details of this historic villa was remarkable.

The location in the suburbs of Lucca was perfect. Shopping for food and finding good local restaurants was very easy and convenient. It did not involve the usually difficult drive on narrow, winding country roads.

Dario and Genni, the managers and Mario and Paola, the owners were the perfect hosts. They were always available to help and answer questions.

I would highly recommend a stay at Villa Moscheni.

A treasured experience.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of thirteen, which is not always easy to accomodate.

However we could not have been more comfortable at the villa. Every comfort is taken care of . The villa is stunningly beautiful and the staff are marvelous.

I would highly recommend this villa.

Historic Property Modern comforts

  • 5 of 5

There were 11 of us from two countries celebrating a family reunion. Our group ranged in age from 17- 62. The house was in excellent condition, totally clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could need. The grounds and the pool were also very well cared for and the location was peaceful but not too far from some nice restaurants,stores and historic villas. The owners were lovely, most welcoming and easy to reach when needed. The house is great for a large group because the bedrooms are quite private and there are several different gathering places in the house but the best of all is the terrace off of the kitchen with the view of the hills.
