About Villa Venere
A stunning 16th-century villa in Tuscany, Villa Venere has been brought magnificently up to date. It boasts an enviable location just outside Lucca, one of the most enchanting Tuscan cities. Despite its age this villa boasts a truly impressive array of modern amenities. There's a private wine-tasting room, where a sommelier (at extra cost) will guide you through the vintages, and a state-of-the-art spa suite. Luxury, as well as history, is the name of the game here.
The estate offers marvellously flexible accommodation arrangements. The villa, the Barn and the Red House comprise independent living spaces, with 14 stylish bedrooms in total. In the main building, guests can come together in a beautiful dining room with floor to ceiling windows opening onto the gardens, or a vast living room with frescoed walls and a fireplace.
The attentive restoration has maintained the property's historic character while incorporating modern touches including air-conditioning and an elevator. Outside you can enjoy the manicured garden. Here there are gorgeous climbing roses, ancient olive and cypress trees, and a shaded pergola adjacent to a private swimming pool.
You might spend your days touring Tuscany but on your return you'll be glad to soothe your muscles in a steamy Turkish bath, or sip sparkling wine on the terrace as you admire a fiery sunset.
