Borgo Bernardini was once the hunting lodge of Count Cosimo Bernardini. Every aristocratic family in Lucca used to own a property in the countryside outside the city walls. Today the estate has been converted to a luxury and exclusive Tuscan retreat in a small hamlet surrounded by a vast park decorated by fountains and water features, ancient trees, small squares and historic alleys. The Villa has been recently restored and equipped with all modern comforts, while at the same time preserving its tradition and history: beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, ornate fireplaces and big windows overlooking the surrounding hills and olive groves. The antique pieces of furniture have belonged to the Bernardini family for centuries therefore they are unique and exclusive.
