Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $517.45
  • Utilities pw.Not Heating $130.66

Notes:

We have different pricing for larger groups and/or with more bedrooms occupied.

With regard to extra charges for different group sizes above. We do not charge individual increases for each person but work on increments of up to 2 for each increase. (Unfortunately home-away system only shows increases charged per person). If a group requires an extra bedroom than what the price classification is for then its an additional £100.

If 9 people are staying, an additional £100 is charged.

If 10 people are staying, the additional charge is still £100

All payments are in British pounds sterling.(£)

Please use your trusted currency converter to work out your exact cost for your own currency

We reserve the right to increase rates for any group & any number of persons that go beyond the specified group date & group size.

Pay pal/international banking charges will be added to the total cost

To offer the Villa at more competitive rates for smaller groups, if in the "Rate Period" description section you see either "2 Bedrooms" or "3 bedrooms", this means that only 2 or 3 bedrooms out of the 4 total will be prepared.

Long term rental enquiries welcome

Heating costs if needed are NOT included in the above utility costs.

We are looking at adding a metered system however for now, we have a flat £30 fee per day if needed.

The person "in charge" of making the reservatation, is responsible for making sure Villa Rosa's location and facilities match the whole groups needs.

Utilities(none heating) are charged on a weekly basis of £100 per week

We have a flat £70 animal charge as well per week. Again adding it automatically above we find confuses the pricing thus we have removed it.

When weeks are split over bank holidays the more expensive 7 day charge applies

Please Not our Standard Rate(2bed/ 4 people) will apply to weeks up to Easter 2018. They are not applicable after that and if you have a date in mind for 2018 please do contact us for a quote.

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 family business and customer focused background, totalling over 200 years, we aim to provide the best Tuscany holiday you can experience.

Why the Owner Chose Bagni di Lucca, Lucca, Italy:
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.
