About The Villa Rosa Team

We are a family group that has owned the property since 1325. It entered our family possession as a reward for excellent service at the Battle of Altopascio where Lucca defeated Florence. After Rosina or Rosa passed away a few years ago we thought about what we could do with the property.We saw these non locals coming in and renting properties and thought not only could we do a BETTER job but be more competitive as well. With a family business and customer focused background, totalling over 200 years, we aim to provide the best Tuscany holiday you can experience.

The Villa Rosa Team purchased this villa in 1325

Why The Villa Rosa Team chose Lucca Area

It is easier to explain why we did not go for a property in Bagni di Lucca itself. Before we re-modernised Villa Rosa we looked at investing in Bagni. It didn't offer what we thought was a true Tuscan Village/hamlet experience, that we new our future guests would prefer. Plus the views at the bottom of our valley are quite limited and constrained.So therefore our choice of location and property were ideal because it was close to Bagni but offered so much more in terms of relaxation, enjoyment and amazing upper valleys views. Also by basing ourselves 10 minutes driving up the valley, we gain the cooling effect of our Prato Fiorito, mountain breezes. Come and find out for yourselves.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Rosa has the best of both words for those that want the Villa in the country side but also know its perfectly placed to take advantage of amenities of a village shop and grocery store only 8 minutes walk away.You are also well placed to drive to supermarkets and hypermarkets from 10 to 25 minutes away.It has space for large family groups and is also perfectly suited for the single writer or producer looking for that piece and quite to think things through.We have fitted a fantastic NATO graded wifi. None of this cueing up up at the local tourist office, to keep abreast of whats going on.The villa is open all year round and with central heating throughout the property you will feel warm and snug throughout the winter months.In the summer, our large swimming pool allows guests to cool down and chill-out in the orchard garden. Here they will experience the total piece and relaxation, of the beautiful Northern Tuscany countryside, that is the Lima Valley.

An excellent 5 star location for Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Villa Rosa in June and had a fabulous time. Our party consisted of myself , wife, 3 children and in laws. First of all I have to thank the Villa Rosa Team in helping us get to the villa. My GPS navigation decided to pack up just past Lucca. A quick call to the team and in 25 minutes, one of them had been dispatched to “escort” us in.I’m sure we would have made it but the fact that they went out of their way to help us meant a lot to me and my family.

We arrived and my tribe decamped to the villa and were shown around the place by the team member. We had bought our supplies at a local hyper market but Villa Rosa had left us a free welcome pack of Wine, diet coke’s and iced tea,that were already in the fridge......what a life saver guys!

Villa Rosa was spotless and well equipped. My teenage daughters loved the Sony ipod sound system and I loved the Sony Flat screen TV....(even though I promised my wife I wouldn’t look at BBC 24 news to keep an eye on the business world).

The kitchen had all the utensils a cook could wish for. But we had decided not to really cook ... after all we were on holiday! We spent our dinners in Bagni di Lucca or at the local trattoria in the village.

We picked Villa Rosa because we were looking for a place to maximize our time in Tuscany. Its only 30 minutes from Lucca and about an hour from Pisa .

We listened to the teams advice and drove to Lucca , parked the car in the safe secure parking area and an hour and half later we were in the centre of Florence. Perfect.

Villa Rosa’s location is hard to fault. All the rooms have fabulous views and the Villa had 2 lovely bathrooms which was appreciated by all.

The pool was large and the garden area around it was well planned with its natural shaded area and sun loungers, all aluminum and very comfortable. With the pool being cleaned twice a week, it was immaculate and the girls loved swimming in the water.

Our week at Villa Rosa finished far to quickly and we spent the evening relaxing on the balcony. Villa Rosa managed to cocoon me at relax me completely. I wish I could go back next week and with any luck we will try and come again for a half term. With the excellent prices they have I can see why they have become very popular, judging by the great comments, left by others in the visitors book.

The whole family loved Villa Rosa and came back home feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Excellent work Villa Rosa!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you and your family had such a great time. The gps incident is all part of our service, to help people get to Villa Rosa as easy as possible. Having been in that same situation, we were happy to help. The free drinks we provide again help our guests get in the holiday mood quickly and there's nothing like having a refreshing cold drink when you’ve just arrived. The Sony ipod station and tv are the same equipment that we have ourselves and thus we did not hesitate in buying them again when adding them to Villa Rosa. We do pride ourselves on the quality of the pool and its high cleanliness. Thats why its visited by our pool guy and gardener every week. When choosing the sun loungers we looked to what was being used at the higher end beach clubs on the Tuscan Riviera, all aluminum and easy to use. Whenever you and your family want to come back, just let us know, you will be most welcome Many Thanks Villa Rosa Tuscany Team

Beautiful villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Villa Rosa. The house was spotless and beautifully and simply decorated. The location was magical particularly sitting on the terrace and watching the stars and twinkling Tuscan villages in the distance.

We were a party of 8 ranging in ages from 6 to 80. Everyone had a great holiday.

We spent our days exploring Tuscany and then came back every day to the stunning pool. The pool was particularly great for the kids as it was in the high 30's most days.

The service was brilliant from the Villa Rosa Tuscany Team. Nothing was too much trouble. We particularly used the restaurant recommendations and enjoyed them all.

Thank you to all the team. We are all in love with Tuscany and hope to come back soon.

A taste of traditional Italy!!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Rosa team gave exceptional service for our first visit to the Tuscan region of Lucca, we could not have asked for more. ( They even arranged tickets for us all to see Robbie Williams - amazing!!). The pool was well used and the lovely house is located near a family run restaurant within walking distance which was an added bonus. All the team were brilliant before and during our visit.

Thank you Team Rosa, we will be back!!( we have all fell in love with Italy!!)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 star review. Its always important that when planning a trip for the first time to Tuscany, that the right customer service and support is there. Since we are seasoned travellers ourselves, we know the kind of help we would want, when going to a new place. First thing we did, is call you on the phone. Its important that potential customers choose the right property for them. Once you were 100% sure that our villa was the right place for your group of 10, the reservation went ahead. Getting tickets for Robbie Williams at The Lucca Sumer festival was also part of our service .We were able to purchase the tickets direct from the box office and keep them safe until your arrival. Our new 8.5m x 4m is proving a real hit with everyone this year and your group loved it just as much. There is a choice of around 20 restaurants in the area, so your never short of a place to go and eat. Once again, thank you for coming to stay and we look forward to you returning to Villa Rosa Tuscany Kind regards Villa Rosa Tuscany Team

Tuscan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Rosa for a week with family. We found everything to be well managed and well kept. From booking to directions to responding queries the Villa Rosa team were great.

The villa is set in a perfect Tuscan village with a great pool, needed in the summer heat as there is no air con.

The Villa Rosa team even responded to our gas running out within 5 minutes. If only service was this good back home!

Parking at the top can be a challenge with a bigger car, so we parked at the lower carpark, which is only a short walk up to the villa (1 min).

There is also a great store, butcher and bar ( for dinner) so that made the whole thing even nicer.

Would definitely recommend a stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 Star review. We are so happy you had an excellent time at Villa Rosa. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service, on offering that little bit more and going the extra mile, to help things run smoothly. Replying within 5 minutes when your gas ran out, half way through your cooking, was just an example of how we would like to be treated in your situation. We also have team members living only a few minutes away and we were able to change the gas quickly and without any fuss, so that you could carry on cooking. Our location at 450 m above sea level allows our mountain breezes to keep things comfortable and the large walls at the villa, help to reduce the summer heat. There is plenty of parking options all within a minute from the villa, with the local corner shop, butches and village restaurant also within walking distance. Thank you once again for coming to stay Best regards as always Villa Rosa Tuscany Team

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely week at Villa Rosa . The location and views are breath taking. We were two families with teenage children who loved the pool. The Villa Rosa team were excellent providing us with all the information we needed.

We would also recommend the white water rafting in Bagni... A great day of fun

Will defiantly return. Thank you
