Exclusive aristocratic villa near Lucca - Villa Gemma is truly a gem within the Quality Villas portfolio of luxury holiday villas in Tuscany. Built in the XVII century this magnificent historical mansion has undergone extensive renovation and restoration in recent years which has returned it to its original splendour.
An extension has further enhanced the building, offering modern accommodation which has been painstakingly decorated with frescoes every bit as worthy of this artisan tradition as the originals themselves. With lavish use of marble and refined furnishings along with the splendid Italian formal gardens this property exudes the elegance and style of bygone days, yet is perfectly combined with modern comforts such as air conditioning, a lift to all floors, a television set in every room and internet points throughout to ensure good connection.
The grounds around Villa Gemma offer numerous shaded areas for relaxation from which you can enjoy far-reaching views over Lucca and the Apuan Alps. Take a stroll under the illuminated rose pergola surrounding the pool after you have enjoyed a genuine Italian dinner al fresco prepared for you by the chef, available on request, and served on the splendid terrace. No surprise many couples from all over the world choose this villa as a perfect setting for their wedding celebrations!
This exclusive holiday villa is ideally located to explore the Tuscan countryside, taste excellent wines and olive oil, and enjoy the lively beach life along the Versilia coastline. The many art towns nearby such as Lucca, Pistoia, Florence and Pisa are within easy reach; for easy access to Florence and to avoid the difficulty of parking in the city itself, it is just a short drive to Lucca's train station and a train journey of about an hour will take you right into the heart of the city.
