VILLA IL BORGO
Bedrooms 12, Bathrooms 12,
Capannori, Lucca – Tuscany, Italy
In the 1700’s Count Bernardini created a haven in the hills that surround the ancient walled city of Lucca. Today Villa il Borgo is an elegant and exclusive Tuscan retreat immersed in a splendid parkland of ornamental ponds and antique fountains, time-forgotten courtyards and lemon scented Italian gardens.
The 12 individually styled bedrooms, for up to 24 guests, are a reflection of gracious living blended discreetly with the typical Tuscan hamlet style of wood beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and warm, welcoming colours.
Reception rooms include a wine library with private collection of Tuscan wines, a card and billiard room, a domed music room with log fireplace, grand banquet room, a large Tuscan kitchen, several comfortable lounges as well as a workout room. With original features and picturesque views over hills and olive groves, Villa il Borgo is a home of beauty, tranquility and charm, a perfect place for the gathering of family and friends where days are timeless and memorable.
Surrounded by hills filled with wild boar, Villa il Borgo was once the hunting lodge retreat of Count Cosimo Bernardini of Lucca who would spend his weekends in the country.
The Bernardini family played an instrumental role in the administration and politics of the Republic of Lucca and were responsible for the upkeep of law (magistrates) and order from 1388 through to 1798. They continued to support the new political order with the invasion of Napoleon towards the end of the 18th century. At this time, Borgo was extended to become a small village for the workers of theestate which included an olive press, bakers and chapel.
