About Borgo Bernardini

The splendid parkland surrounding this historic villa may offer a clue to its origins. Dating back 1,000 years this grandiose Tuscan villa was once a boar hunting lodge. The main part of the property was fashioned in the 18th-century by Count Cosimo Bernardini as an elegant, aristocratic retreat. Fully restored, it remains exactly that today. It even retains his name: Borgo Bernardini.

 

Borgo Bernardini carefully integrates its heritage with contemporary comforts and timeless style. The original stone chapel is now a luxurious bedroom, overlooking the swimming pool and lemon tree-filled courtyard. Other bedrooms centre around a 17th-century fountain. Add in en suites with Jacuzzis and trellised frescoes and you’ll appreciate how Borgo Bernardini rolls.

 

In all there are 12 individually styled bedrooms. These offer warm colours, terracotta floors and wood beamed ceilings. Reception rooms include a wine library, a billiard room, a music room, a grand banquet room and several comfortable sitting rooms. If you haven’t tired yourself out exploring all of these there’s a gym as well.

 

The spacious grounds are crammed full of features to discover on lazy strolls. Ornamental ponds, antique fountains, calm courtyards and Italian gardens are offset exquisitely by the Tuscan backdrop of Lucchese hills, olive groves and the walled city of Lucca.

 

Borgo Bernardini is a retreat that offers all the aristocratic grace of years gone past with the contemporary comforts today’s discerning traveller demands. Its unique and exclusive. It could well be the ultimate Tuscan villa.
