Villa al Boschiglia
Built in the 17th century, Villa al Boschiglia is set in beautiful northwest Tuscany, in the ancient parish of Vorno near the magnificent medieval town of Lucca. Protected by an enclosure wall of front viewing stones, the Villa is the true expression of Lucca’s sober architecture.
Displaying the easy elegant lifestyle of the period, the noble, or main, floor is raised from the country floor, and entered through a portal atop the outside double flight stairway, with a symmetrical distribution of the other rooms around the central salon. There is also interior access to the country, or ground, floor where guests can enjoy delightful dinners in front of a large fireplace.
Guests are embraced by the gentle colors and sharp fragrances of the panoramic countryside. Upon the opening of the private gate, the guest’s first sight is an alley of ‘tall and pure’ cypresses. The wide park of the Villa with lime-trees, oaks, olives, magnolias, large bushes of aromatic plants, and roses is the ideal background for the inviting Romanic swimming pool.
The wide park of the Villa with lime-trees, oaks, olives, magnolias , large bushes of aromatic plants and roses is the ideal background for the Romanic style swimming-pool nowadays winded by a romantic pergola of Bouganvillas.
The pergola, entwined with Bougainvilleas, offers a pleasant area for outside dining and relaxation. In this atmosphere, culture and art are matched together in the sight and experience of living in this truly gorgeous Villa, where the lifestyle of the guests is quickly adapted to the surroundings.
