Villa La Chiusa dates back to the 15th century and was conceived as a summer retreat for the Giani family, who were distinguished in Lucca for having founded the city first charity hospital. Located outside Lucca's eastern gate, the villa now finds itself virtually in town, offering double benefit of a peaceful walled haven and the proximity to the city. Antique furnishings and artworks are in evidence throughout the Villa which has been also modernised into a comfortable family home. The large well-tended garden is graced with a beautiful round swimming pool. Villa La Chiusa can accommodate 12 people in 6 fully air conditioned bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Ancient stone walls surround this park-like garden planted with persimmon fruit trees, roses, wisterias and grapevines. Daily housekeeping is included and chef is available for dinners.
