Originally a lodge from which wild boar were hunted in the early 19th century, it was expanded into a small village for the workers of the estate.
A modern restoration accentuated the values of the space and setting of its inner courtyards, softly lit old walls and enchanted silence.
Inside there is a formal dining room, a kitchen for casual dining, a music room with fireplace, a card and full-size billiard room, as well as a fully equipped gym.
A genuine time-forgotten atmosphere reigns as guests are immersed in an aristocratic ambiance of weeping willows, fountains and formal gardens.
Perfect for a gathering of family and friends, Borgo Benni is a home of such beauty, tranquillity and comfort that you will find it hard to leave.

"It is a pleasure to provide feedback on Borgo Benni. Our small group had the pleasure of a week long stay in June of 2017 - and it was exceptional. Exceptional service from Home In Italy before we arrived, and from our hosts Nicola, Barbara and David after we arrived at the location. They set us up with a great cooking lesson from a remarkable chef who was very experienced and personable. They even arranged for one of our party to visit a local dentist for an emergency. We could not ask for more. The only drawback was that Borgo Benni is a bit out in the country - it is a 15 minute drive to Lucca, but for large groups that are planning to spend a lot of time at a great villa and enjoy the swimming pool and countryside, this is a great choice."
