This villa dates from the 17th and 18th centuries. La Chiusa maintains its traditional charm and character with terracotta tiled floors, frescoes and antiques. Villa la Chiusa is not formally elegant; rather, it offers a comfortable décor and this atmosphere is enhanced by the generosity and welcome of the good-natured owner. The owner speaks English well and her guests find her very warm and welcoming. She can add immeasurably to your stay by recommending the best places to visit and excellent restaurants to enjoy.

Villa La Chiusa is located in Lucca outside the walls in SS Annunziata, a pretty village 1.2 miles from the center. The thick walls that surround the town were built during the 16th and 17th centuries to defend against the Florentines and are still intact today. Within the walls, you will find a cathedral, gardens, shops, and fine restaurants, all just a short walk from the villa.

The three-quarter acre Italian garden is completely surrounded by century-old trees and ancient walls. In the garden is a lovely in-ground pool (28 ft across x 4.5 ft deep.). The floor space of the villa is 6,500 sq ft.

There are bicycles at the villa for guests to use or the tourist office rents bikes. Lucca is wonderful for biking as the center is closed to traffic except for residents and the wide city walls have a park on top with biking/walking paths. The adjacent countryside features grand villas and wineries.

Reviews for Villa la Chiusa

  • P.B.
    January 18, 2016

    It was great to have a ‘home’ to come back to for down time and breaks in the middle of a busy week. It was nice to make ourselves a quick breakfast before we started off on the days’ adventures and to be able to have a couple of dinners on our own. Lucca was a great place to go with kids. It was great having bikes. We loved riding the walls around Lucca. I think that was the highlight of the trip for my daughter.
