Villa Denise is a very pretty villa hidden away north of medieval city of Lucca, reached by a private tarmacked/asphalt road that winds up hill through the property's woods and olive groves. The house is comfortably furnished in the local country style with a sprinkling of antiques but with modern amenities such as a large flat screen TV with Sky channels, air-conditioned bedrooms throughout the first floor with mosquito nets on all doors and windows. A large garden with a well-kept lawn leads to a salt water swimming pool with a whirlpool area. The pool terrace is amply supplied with garden furniture and, like the house itself, faces southwards with lovely views over the hills. Shady outdoor seating is provided under two loggias, the larger of which is equipped with a built-in barbeque for al fresco meals. Organic red and white wines along with olive oil are also produced on the estate which can be purchased locally. Amongst the beautifully kept terraced olive groves is an informal grass tennis court. For all its privacy, the villa is a very short drive from shops and restaurants, and within twenty minutes of both Lucca and the white beaches of Versilia. The owners/caretakers offer a fantastic “house concierge” for our guests, Elena is a professional chef creating magical local dishes that all our clients rave about. Go to reviews and read about some of our clients’ comments about the fantastic experience and service is available at Villa Denise. Whilst staying at Villa Denise you can also take certified cooking lessons with Elena, for more details speak to our Concierge team.
