Villa Daniela

This splendid historical villa is set on the slopes of the hills near Lucca, It enjoys peace and quiet and a beautiful view of the countryside: essential ingredients for a totally relaxing stay. This enchanting property preserves all the charm and character of a historic residence with its antique furniture, frescoed walls and large Italian garden overlooking the splendid panorama of the surrounding countryside.

In 1649 the local aristocrat Alessandro Massei bought the Villa from the Santucci family in a public auction. The Villa was not in a good state and between 1650 and 1656 much restoration and improvement was carried out on the building to render it a lovely holiday villa for the noble Luccese family. Recently renovated to the highest standards and services.

We think the true magic of Villa Daniela's culinary and wine experiences are in part due to its new partnership the villa with local chef Valentino and his lovely wife and sommelier, Larisa.  Simply amazing for small gatherings, corporate getaways or the wedding of your dreams!
