Villa del Cardinale is a 500 years old building, set among a 300 acres of olive groves, vineyards and wood. The owner produces and offers to her guests organic olive oil and wine. The location is very convenient, just four kilometres from Lucca and within walking distance of a small village. Just across from the entrance there is a coffee bar, bakery and ice cream parlour (the gelato is one of the best in Lucca), a favourite stop for all the guests. Lucca is famous for its tree-topped medieval walls, a peaceful promenade where people stroll and bicycle. Lucca's streets are lined with elegant shops and charming restaurants, and an outstanding antiques market is held on the last weekend of each month.
The villa, though it is an historically registered property, has been renovated to a very high level of beauty and comfort. Central heating and AC, wireless internet connection, a professional kitchen, pool table, home-theatre, etc, are among the amenities offered to the guests. A full staff looks after all the guests requests. The continental breakfast and the dinner are served in the dining room or in the garden.
