Villa Cosimo, originally a retreat of Count Cosimo Bernardini of Lucca, has been transformed into a magnificent Tuscan hideaway enveloped by an extensive park adorned with fountains, ancient trees, and historic pathways.
Within the villa, you'll find a private swimming pool, a fitness room with garden access, and a living room featuring large glass windows. Additionally, there's a spacious outdoor dining area that can accommodate up to 26 people, situated within an antique courtyard on the estate, alongside an impressive fishpond.
The villa's dedicated staff is ready to assist you and can organize special activities, including cooking classes and wine, olive oil, and ice-cream tastings to enrich your Tuscan experience.
A luxury villa that preserved its tradition and history, Cosimo has 12 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and majestic living rooms featuring beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and ornate fireplaces, decorated with antique pieces of furniture that belonged to the Bernardini family.
The ground floor features a large dining area for 24 people, an elegant and spacious living room with a fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen in traditional Tuscan style, a laundry room, four guest bathrooms, and a gym. From the kitchen you can access the "Peschiera" courtyard, the alfresco dining area and a patio with tables.
On the first floor guests will find 12 double bedrooms with en-suit bathrooms with bath and shower combination,four of them feature a jacuzzi bath and shower combination, and another are equipped with twin beds that can be converted into double and one features a jacuzzi bath and shower combination.
Though it's undeniably tempting to fully indulge in the amenities at Villa Cosimo, the villa also serves as an ideal starting point for exploring the prominent attractions of Florence, Pisa, Lucca, 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.
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 Cosimo.

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.
