About Villa del Duca

Tuscany is the very soul of Italy, no other region offers such a wealth of artistic and architectural treasures. Experience this enchanting destination in one of Italy’s most exclusive and “wow” mansion, Villa del Duca. Built in the mid-1800s and still owned by the very same family to date, Villa del Duca exudes warmth and homeliness, making it perfect for your family to enjoy. Designed in French style, the property has become the retreat of the rich and famous where old-world grandeur meets impeccable service.

The interiors effortlessly combine luxury with ultimate comfort. Prints are designed by Braquenie, crystal chandeliers from Murano, mirrors are gilded. The villa can host up to 20 people in 12 bedrooms offering plenty of space to get together in the frescoed dining room or striking drawing room with terrace for instance. There is a billiard room and a TV room for more intimate gatherings while active guests can benefit from the private swimming pool, tennis court and gym.

The 7,400 acre estate, which neighbours to another impressive estate once the summer retreat of the Italian Royal family and then Italy’s president, sits on a prime location just a short drive from the sandy beaches of Migliarino. The villa is just 20 minutes from Pisa airport and is ideally located 10 minutes from Lucca, 15 minutes from Forte dei Marmi, 25 minutes from Pietrasanta & Carrara and 75 minutes from Portofino.
