The surroundings of Lucca have many luxury vacation rentals to offer, and Villa Cardinale is one of them available at an affordable rate. The splendid city of Lucca, situated in the north of Tuscany, is famous for its elegant period houses built over a span of four centuries in some of the most pleasant areas of the Lucchese countryside and the arc of hills which surround the plain of this lovely town.
Villa Cardinale is an excellent example of one of these villas. In the 17th century, it was the residence of the Cardinal from who the villa takes its name.
Renting a luxurious villa such as this offers a unique opportunity to enjoy a holiday marked by elegance, relaxation, total privacy and excellent service, all in an environment rich in charm and history surrounded by centuries-old olive groves. The villa has been superbly restored, all the rooms have period furnishings, flanked by the modern comforts of television, satellite and internet. The internal beauty and elegance of the villa are harmoniously balanced with the external space which is made up of a stunning and beautifully kept park with a garden, ancient trees, multi-coloured flowers and a small patio with comfortable chairs to admire the landscape.
Situated at the highest part of the park is a swimming pool, equipped with sunbeds, umbrellas and a gazebo with sofas and chairs. The park also extends to the back of the villa where there is an area equipped with tables and chairs for splendid meals al-fresco.
The guardian and the gardener of the villa live on-site in their own apartment which is situated in an isolated part of the property. Privacy is therefore guaranteed.
The villa, featured in the best editions of Lucchese Villa Books, is located only a few kilometres from both Lucca and Pisa. In addition, the famous coastal resorts of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi are within easy reach, just 20 minutes by car.

"Our extended family of 10 adults stayed here for a week. We enjoyed the refreshing pool in the late afternoons. Luciana cooked us delicious homemade meals. We are still talking about her melanzane, pasta pomodoro and peach tart. She and Giuliano were constantly working to keep the house clean inside and outside. The rooms are all air-conditioned which let us sleep comfortably. The grounds are meticulous and the house is well cared for."

"Our group of 10 adults arrived with excitement from all parts of the world to stay at the fabulous Villa. Our generous and gracious hostess Daniela met us on arrival for the initial tour of her family home. We all selected one of the well appointed bedrooms with accompanying bathrooms. The 400 year old villa is full of antiques paintings and was a thrill to hang our hats for 7 days. We acted like children squealing with delight at discovering each beautiful room or wandering through the glorious gardens surrounding this magnificent property. It's close proximity to Lucca, Pisa and other towns such as Forte dei Marmi kept us busy exploring each day. One of the staff members, served our breakfast in the garden each morning (including fresh cherries from their trees) and helped us with laundry and any questions regarding the local area. He is an asset to the property - we all wanted to take him home! Two nights we took advantage of Daniela's cook who prepared a scrumptious meal of local fare served in the magnificent dining room. We didn't use the pool as we were too busy exploring, but if staying in the heat of summer I'm sure it would be a pleasure to hang around.
We all felt our time went too soon and would happily recommend this glorious ancient villa to any group or family. Daniela was also most helpful with local phone calls and offering suggestions for places to visit and other activities. There are thousands of rental villas throughout Italy, but very few as spectacular as Villa Cardinale."
