The gardens are undergoing some restoration and addition of new features but are certainly worth exploring. Clearly some of the old features ( and some newer like the 1920,s swimming pool) are showing signs of damage and access is restricted but this does not seriously...More

I have visited the gardens of this villa with small groups of people many times over the past 9 years and they are delightful. There is also a huge ornate pond, originally stocked with fish to feed the families living in the Villa since 1590's....More

WE were there with a group of friends. Always interesting hearing family stories and how it developed over the years and the gardens are very very nice too

What a great way to spend a few hours in the Lucca countryside. We thoroughly enjoyed the splendour of this amazing villa and its gardens. Our tour of the villa was conducted by Stefano, Italo-British who spoke so passionately (in immaculate Queen's english) revealing an...More

This villa is over 400 years old and was at one time owned by the French ambassador to the then Republic of Lucca, who renovated the front of the Villa to resemble Versailles. We had a very nice tour of the main floor of the...More
