Villa Rosa is a re-modernised 1300 's villa,situated 10 minutes above, the historical spa town of Bagni Di Lucca.

(Before you read any further we just want to quickly point out our brand new Made in Italy kitchen that has been fitted).

Villa Rosa offers the ideal base to discover the joys of Tuscany being in the Tuscan Triangle (Pisa ,Lucca & Firenze)

The Villa is 75 minutes from Pisa & Florence Airport & 35 minutes from Lucca,the provincial capital.

The beauty of its location provides the opportunity for total tourism all year round; with the Tuscan Rivera an hour by car & the ski slopes of Abetone are 35 minutes away. Ideal for walkers and those looking for mountain adventure, you can walk from 100 metres above sea level to nearly 1,300 metres above sea. Mountain biking, road cycling and moto cross, are all popular sports in the area as well. La Lima river also provides a great back drop for white water rafting and fishing.

After your exercise why not visit the roman spa,10 minutes away in Bagni di Lucca.Everything from an excellent steam to the famous mud treatments.

Looking for great food? You won't be disappointed, with everything from family run trattoria's with 10 euro lunch menu's to michelin graded restaurants, for that special occasion.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1325

                      About the owner: 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 business and customer focused background totalling between our family group over 200 years, we aim to provide the best Tuscany holiday you can experience.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bagni di Lucca:
                      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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      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.
