Villa Bartolomeo 16

Luxury Villa and Pool close to Lucca : Marlia, Lucca

Nice little touches

  • Being in private gardens surrounded by the countryside and yet within easy reach of Lucca is a very privileged position - the best of both worlds

Good to know

  • The main villa sleeps 14 with a further two beds in the "Limonaia", an annex in the villa's gardens

An elegant villa for 16 on the foothills of the apennine mountains just north of Lucca, Villa Bartolomeo has been recently restored to its former 18th-century glory by a painstaking local owner. Today it has all the elegance and charm of a bygone era coupled with the amenities that make modern life comfortable; it has a beautiful private pool set in formal gardens, a lift, AC throughout and spacious comfortable bedrooms.

The views from the villa are wonderful, ranging over the Serchio river valley towards the jewel of a city that is Lucca, just a 10 minute drive away.


The ground floor of this historic villa has a beautiful living room centred on a fireplace and furnished with comfortable sofas. On the other side of the entrance hall there is a spacious dining room, ready for those few days you might not wish to dine outside, al-fresco, under the furnished and shaded pergola.

At the back of the house there is the original kitchen, where the owners' respect for the past and enthusiasm for the future is most apparent, with the original kitchen maintained and restored, including a wonderful working fireplace with charcoal burners, as well as a large stone sink, all paired with a wall of modern kitchen appliances.

There is also a beautiful studio, the perfect place to work away from home, as well as a ground floor bathroom and a lift to reach the further two floors with ease. On the first floor there are two ensuite double bedrooms as well as an ensuite twin. On the floor above there is a further double with ensuite bathroom, as well as two twin bedrooms which share a bathroom.

The villa is surrounded by its own formal gardens which also contain a private pool and an annex, the 'limonaia' which has a double bed, a bathroom and a kitchen, making it a self-contained unit that can sleep 2 to 4.

Around Villa Bartolomeo

Though it's undeniably tempting to fully indulge in the amenities at Villa Bartolomeo, the villa also serves as an ideal starting point for exploring the prominent attractions of Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Pistoia and the captivating seaside destinations of Versilia, including Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio.

Lucca, just a short 15-minute drive from the villa, holds the distinction of being an Italian "Città d'arte" or "City of Art" due to its remarkably preserved Renaissance walls, originally constructed as a defensive fortification and later transformed into a pedestrian promenade. Lucca is also surrounded by beautiful historic villas worth visiting - Historic Villas of Lucca

In a half-hour drive you can reach Forte dei Marmi, a sea town with a sandy beach nestled within a pine forest. Here, you can relish a visit to the local market, embark on a leisurely bike ride amidst the historic villas and take a walk along the Pontile, a scenic pier along the coast.

Venturing on a slightly longer journey, you'll find the cultural treasures of Florence, which are less than an hour's drive from Villa Bartolomeo.

Worth knowing

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
