Casa Berti – a 16th Century  near Lucca

Luxury villa in Tuscany with swimming pool

Casa Berti is set on a sunlit mountain spur 14km from the Renaissance city of Lucca.

Constructed in the 16th century, the villa has been carefully restored and lovingly decorated by the current owners. 

This villa in Tuscany with a private and gated  swimming pool is situated in a private hill-top estate with expansive views. There are two houses, a yoga/art studio, gardens, olive groves and woodland.

Casa Berti is reached by a winding road from the local village church and has exceptional views over the surrounding hills. The villa is characterised by high ceilings, large windows, double doors and thick walls to keep the temperature comfortable year round. There is a terracotta-tiled terrace lined with lemon trees and shaded pergola from where you can watch the sunrise and sunset. The villa has a swimming pool (10x6m), a private chapel, and a spacious, light-filled artists’ studio. The accommodation is of a luxury standard and beautifully furnished. The bedrooms have king sized beds, and the bathrooms are spacious and have recently been renovated to the highest standard.

Casa Rosina – the farmhouse, Lucca villa rental

The traditional farmhouse (30 metres from the villa ) sleeps six. It has been recently refurbished to provide two double bedrooms with en-suite bath/shower room and a further two single bedrooms which share a shower room.  While independent, it is close enough to the main house to allow a total group of sixteen people. With its own garden, kitchen, open fireplace and study it can supplement the main house or provide a romantic getaway in its own right.
