Villa Bernardini

Situated near the small village of Vicopelago, in the peaceful verdant Lucca countryside, this ancient villa is a fine example of late Renaissance architecture, commissioned by Bernardino Bernardini and terminated in 1615. It has always remained in the Bernardini family and is still lived in by its descendants.
The villa is set in the middle of a park whose most interesting part is undoubtedly the rear where the teatro di verzura is situated. This is a delightful garden of greenery created at the beginning of the 1700's using the Buxus sempervirens plant.


The farmhouse and outbuilding of the estate have fully been renovated to provide comfortable and modern accommodation. Two of these houses are available to tourists throughout the year.
The Villa and gardens can also be used for those wishing to immerse themselves in bygone days. Consequently, weddings, dinners and other special occasions can be organised.

Nearby, on the land belonging to the estate, there is a small golf course of about 2.5 hectares and private Tennis-Club at about 100 Mts. distance which has 8 cover courts, 2 swimming pool open all year round, on for adults with diving board and one for children. There is also a fully equipped gym with indoor courts for volley ball and basket ball etc.
