Overview

Only 7 kilometers from the city centre of Lucca,the Villa Grabau offers a lovely,romantic environment: the wonderful English Garden is a special example of botanical garden and keeps trees from all over the world;absolutely do not miss it in autumn....the colours are the most beautiful you can find in the area;and in summertime it is the perfect place to spend a lovely time.The Limonaia is a real jewel, perfectly preserved from 1640; the Italian Garden will appear to you as if coming suddenly from the past,with its valuable collection of lemon trees in rich old terracotta pots;the elegant groundfloor of the Villa is totally furnished and the rooms show amazing frescoes.

Lucca has some incredible villas, and Villa Grabau is definitely a top choice! It has lovely gardens and the lower floors are visit-able. You may even have a wedding at this venue, but I am not sure the cost.

This was a beautiful villa, with gardens which are attractive but probably not of huge interest to the serious gardener. The villa itself is only accessible by guided tour, as items are precious, and is the ground floor only (the family live on the upper...More
