Villa La Lucciole

Immediately upon arrival at Villa Le Lucciole you realize you are in a very special place. Then, as you enter the sublime entryway you know that you are. You will feel transproted to another time and place. Classical art, including sculptures paintings and antiuques await you at every turn. Surely, this is how the well-to-do, do Summer.

Simply said, Villa La Lucciole or :House of the Fireflies", is fabulous.


Each of the bedrooms and baths are perfectly appointed with lovely tiles both from Italy and abroad.  The furniture reminds you of how an aristocrat might....comfortably, retire for an afternoon rest.  Sensual artwork and material surround you as you glide through the deceivingly lovely faux wall finishes.  Cinechitta could not have done better.

Just when you think there could not be another aspect of Le Lucciole that would impress....take a leisurely stroll through the garden to one of the nicest pool areas we have seen.  Prepare for La Dolce Vita.

  • Villa Bougainvillea

    In a beautiful corner of Tuscany, and exactly in proximity of the antique parish of Vorno, nearby the medieval town of Lucca, Villa Bougainvillea was built around the middle of 17th century.

    Reserved and protected by a stone enclosure wall, the Villa is the true expression of Lucca’s sober architecture following the respect of the rules in placing the noble floor raised from the country floor, in the entrance portal with the double flight stairway, in the symmetrical distribution of the rooms around the central salon, in memory of a lifestyle based on an easy elegance of those days.

    As the gates open you are immediately transported to what seems like another time as the elegant cypress trees welcome you. The wide park with lime-trees, oaks, olives, magnolias , large bushes of aromatic plants and roses is the ideal background for the Romanic style swimming-pool nowadays winded by a romantic pergola of Bougainvillea.
