About the property

Villa San Francesco is a private luxury villa with pool which dates back to the early 1800’s. Completely renewed in 2008, the Villa, together with a limited number of nearby cottages, lays on an enjoyable and privileged position, within easy reach of the town centre of Bagni di Lucca (5 minutes walk), where a good number of shops, bars, and restaurants can be found. The spa resorts are situated at a short distance from the Villa (1 km), and are reachable by car or a leisurely walk in the green.

Immersed in a typically Tuscan landscape, sleeps up to 10 people and it is an ideal destination for those looking for a relaxing holiday amongst serene surroundings with culture and other diversions close to hand.


The Villa is a three-floor construction of circa 300 square metres. At the ground floor, there is a large drawing room, the dining room, and the fully equipped kitchen. On the first and second floor there are two twin-bed bedrooms and two-double bedrooms, each one of them with bathroom. On the first floor, besides, there is another sitting room thought for relax and entertainment and equipped with a large HD television set, a dvd player, and satellite tv. On the second floor, there are two further rooms, respectively furnished with a SAUNA, and with a wide, pleasant Jacuzzi.

All the bathrooms in the Villa have been recently designed or restored. Three of them are decorated with white Carrara and one with Sicilian pink marble.

The Villa’s interior, accurately and elegantly decorated with XVIII and XIX century furniture, is typical of the residences of the region around Lucca. The precious and light fabrics, the meticulous attention for details, and interior lighting make the Villa very warm and comfortable. In the summer, the Villa is cool inside, even in the hottest days, although at any time of the year and, especially during the winter, its efficient heating system guarantees the residents comfortable and pleasant stays.


Facing the main entrance is a large private garden with a fabulous view towards the Tuscan valley and mountains. There is rich vegetation in the meadow and big ancient earthenware basins with flowers. The range opposite the villa is large, both with areas exposed to the sun and areas hidden in the shadow. There is a big table with chairs and various pieces of garden furniture made of wood and wrought iron. The place is most suitable for resting, reading or talking in the shades of secular trees. It’s also perfect for having a typical Tuscany dinner during a cool refreshing evening. Adjacent to the villa, running down along the hillside, there is a vast area of private terraced gardens leading to a small forest. Here and there one can find ancient stones and marble garden seats, rose bushes and other scented flowers. Our villa is an ideal place both for those who search for peace and intimacy within the luxurious building immersed in green foliage as well as for families with children who can play freely in a natural and well protected environment.

About Francesca

I was born in Florence in 1981, where I studied and lived until I was 26. Today I live in Livorno with my husband and 2 kids.

Francesca purchased this villa in 2008

Why Francesca chose Bagni di Lucca

This was our family house, where my father lived for a few years when he was a child. Villa San Francesco was my uncle house when I was young and we bought it in 2006. After a big renovation in 2008 we decided to rent the villa as a holiday house, as we love to meet people from different countries and we thought this was a great way to share local and family history and help to maintain the house.

Just Stunning

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was just beyond all our expectations, the history of Villa San Francesco and the people whom have lived there is very impressive. The rooms, the beautiful furnishings, the stunning gardens which are so well looked after and the very impressive infinity pool. This is by far the best place to stay when visiting Tuscany,

With Lucca a half hour drive away, viarggio beach an hour away and the beautiful city of Florence just over an hour away, this is by far the perfect location!!!!!!! & i very much look forward to my next visit to this beautiful villa and the beautiful village of bagni di lucca. The owner Francesca is very friendly and always available if there are any questions that you may have, she goes out her way to make you feel very welcome, so thank you so much Francesca & i can not wait to book with you again in the future.

Truely my favourite place

Kindest regards

Peta & family x x x x

A Fabulous Tuscan Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa San Francesco for two weeks in July and August and had a wonderful, wonderful time. The Villa is in a stunning location in Bagni di Lucca and is immaculately maintained and extraordinarily comfortable. The pool was refreshing, the rooms are comfortable, spacious and elegant. The owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. This was a fabulous holiday which we shall remember forever - we cannot recommend Villa San Francesco too highly.

So much beauty and history

  • 5 of 5

We so much enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, but most of all the tranquility and grander of the mansion. It has such intricate details in decoration, landscaping, architecture. If you are visiting, make sure you read the book authored by the owner about the history of the villa.

The owners were very helpful with getting settled in. They are very 'sympatico' and discrete. Make sure you spend some time in the town itself, as it has great historic architecture and an idyllic lifestyle to offer.

Thank you so much for sharing your gem with us.
