Worthwhile stop

The tour guide was excellent providing history of the house, family, and Lucca in general. Combine with visits to other villas nearby

Historic villa that is still occupied by the family. Nice gardens, inside of the building is in decent shape and has historic furnishings including frescoes.

A short inside tour and lovely manicured gardens. Worth hiring a guide to see a few different villas in a day. Serena of Wishversilia was wonderful for this villa and Villa Reale.

We have visited scores of castles and stately homes across Europe and while in Germany or the UK you would definitely expect a tea room, souvenir shop and better toilets in most of these places (not all) you loose the sense of living history you only get when an old family is holding onto its treasures and doing their best...

Worthwhile visiting the villa and the parc. The Tour is short in multiple languages but gives a good insight in Life of Lucca's rich families

This is only one of the more of 300 villas in the Lucca area. From the road leading to the entrance the mansion is easily spotted and the view is very impressive. You pay a fee to get access to the grounds and garden, teens and children up to 15 are granted free entrance. Beautifully well kept on the outside,... More

Well worth a visit to get a feeling of what it was like to be one of the grand families of Lucca. The gardens are interesting - converted from italian style to "English" but still with lakes and fountains. The house tours are definitely worth joining.

OK, so we had to engage the most wonderful person to take us to this hidden gem (see wishversilia.it and its bespoke concierge service) but superbly worth this extra effort--both extensive gardens, outbuildings and fantastic ground-floor interiors of a real patrician 17th c. country retreat. A memorable morning's excursion. Note: closed on Tuesdays, and the guided tour of the villa... More

A spectacular exterior, very well preserved, and lovely gardens as well. Be sure to time your visit so you can take part in the guided tour of the first floor of the villa. The interior can only be seen if you are in the group tour, so time your visit for when it is offered. We were lucky and arrived... More

Astounded to be charged €7 each to walk round this garden. We managed to spin out the saunter round to 1/2 an hour but there was only a few potted citrus trees and a few more tubs of geraniums. We couldn't access the the "box" garden as it was chained off. Everything else was just grass and a couple of... More
