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.
