All the elegance and nobility of Lucca are enclosed in a rare white pearl set in the green Tuscany: Villa La Preziosa, a residence that dates back to the early 1700s, a magical and historic place that is now a high-end residence.
Restored between 2018 and 2019 with great care, without altering in any way the traditional charm and typical character of a period villa, La Preziosa preserves the original terracotta and Lucchese grit floors and frescoed rooms furnished with antique and refined furniture, while elegant coverings, curtains, and decorations make the mansion a special stay for art lovers.
Combining technology, modernity, and tradition was the mission of the property that acquired the Villa in 2017, dedicating care and attention to the creation of what can now be admired during the stay, including the most advanced bio-building interventions.
La Preziosa is the first hotel in Italy able to offer a 'climate of well-being' through thermoenergetics, which is obtained when the human being is in thermal equilibrium with the space/building, or, the thermal state necessary in nature for the perfect functioning of the human body. This state determines a much higher energy level, with all the positive effects that this has on one's health. A sophisticated dehumidification and air purification system amplifies the thermoenergetic effects, alleviating the discomfort of those who suffer from allergies to dust and mites. The entire system is powered by a zero-emission heat pump, which is in turn activated by the existing photovoltaic system, under the aegis of the most modern sustainability criteria.
Outside, the gentle lines of the splendid Italian garden introduce the sumptuous building in a riot of rose gardens, fruit trees, and lemon trees, amidst a magnificent view and intoxicating scents. The swimming pool and a gazebo where you can dine or enjoy an excellent breakfast complete the scene, while inside you are immediately captivated by the warm Renaissance atmosphere in the elegant hall with refined furnishings and decorations: on the left, a glimpse of the breakfast room, decorated in style and, on the right, another room, an authentic exclusive area with the possibility of accommodating up to twenty-five people.
Environments and spaces, rooms and suites, are designed to ensure unique experiences, capable of involving all the senses. Each room is named after a flower, a suggestion due to the predominant color of the furnishings and finishes. All equipped with hand-painted friezes, the rooms have been furnished with style and harmony and offer the best so that guests can enjoy maximum comfort, wrapped and protected by the sense of peace and charm that permeates the entire structure, in an authentic Italian dream to which particular attention is paid to the gastronomic part. In the large and spacious kitchen, theme dinners, tastings, and wine courses can be prepared, thanks to the help of chefs and sommeliers invited for the occasion.
Inside the shop, there is the opportunity to purchase the best typical food and wine products of the area, where you can always find seasonal excellences and the best that the region offers in terms of wines and local products.
There is no limit to the desires that can come true in the aristocratic halls of the Villa, which is only seven kilometers from the center of Lucca and is close to the many attractions of this wonderful land; the Versilia sea, the beauty of the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and the most beautiful cities of art can be reached in a short time. Villa La Preziosa, as the name suggests, is a true experience that enhances the way to live Tuscany and its beauty.
