A stunning luxury 16th century Tuscan apartment 250m² with spectacular 360° terrace views. Perfectly positioned inside Lucca's ancient walls, with Italian neighbours, and interiors blending historical features with chic iconic design. Flooded with light, the 4BR layout with many indoor & outdoor living/dining zones make this the perfect spacious villa for several couples holidaying together, or large families on a dream vacation who want all the comforts of home. 5* service & garage included.

The space
BVL is a very special and expansive penthouse positioned atop a 16th century palazzo. Over 250m2 of luxurious space over two levels plus 50m2 of private garage.

After a short walk up 22 easy steps to the glass-sided elevator you arrive at the Bella Vista Lucca front door.

Upon entering this loft-style penthouse apartment you will be immediately struck by the interior design features, abundant space, natural light and exquisite Italian antiques and art that complete this penthouse apartment.

Luxurious casual sofas easily accommodate 12 guests in this stylish haven for relaxing, socialising or snuggling. Gaze out the windows to the terrace in bloom, peruse the library books on Italian history, enjoy a movie on the large screen TV or play old-fashioned board games. At the far end of the living room under the windows the more formal dining area seats up to 14 guests at a beautiful 3.3 metre long chestnut table.

Whip up culinary experiences, take a group cooking course or invite our in-villa chef to indulge you. The original Tuscan kitchen with open fireplace, cotto floors and copper pots are a feast for the eyes whilst you prepare one! Complete with a superb AGA oven, Miele appliances and wine fridge, this kitchen table for 8 may be your favourite place to dine.

Dining locations are endless with the huge sun-soaked terrace directly off the kitchen providing another magnificent setting. Enjoy long leisurely lunches under the shade of the bamboo canopy and warm summer nights overlooking the golden duomo façade on this tranquil outdoor terrace amidst flowering plants and kitchen herbs.

Downstairs, three large bedrooms each have charming views, limewashed Tuscan beam roofs and a natural colour palette. The Lucca queen bedroom has a private ensuite bathroom, the Puccini queen suite shares a bathroom with the Pinocchio room that has two single beds. A separate large walk-in robe provides additional storage for the heaviest of travellers.

Upstairs the fourth bedroom is enormous and is divided into two areas. The Duomo queen suite with cathedral views has a private ensuite. Curtains separate this bedroom from the Parents retreat – the perfect place to take some time out, read, relax and reflect on your day.

A brand new deluxe crib, high chair and rocking chair serve the needs of the youngest guest.

If you can leave your parents retreat the upper terrace's breakthtaking 360* views are the envy of all in Lucca - a most spectacular backdrop to your morning coffee, yoga or evening aperativo.

Guest access
Every inch of the penthouse apartment is yours to access and enjoy - make it your own.

Other things to note
Wake up and enjoy fresh coffee on either of the two terraces gazing over the Italian terracotta rooftops to the sounds of church bells ringing. Spend days living like a Lucca local strolling through the medieval lanes, cycling on the wide tree-lined walls encircling the town, dining in authentic Tuscan restaurants, hiking the Roman aqueduct, and enjoying the abundant cultural festivals held year round in the town piazzas.

After a day of exploring, put your feet up and enjoy the spectacular sunsets and mountainous skyline from the top terrace with a refreshing Spritz in hand and relax to the sounds of Puccini from the nightly concerts next door – an Italian aperativo of dreams!

Continue your luxury vacation with relaxing Tuscan dinners on the terrace overlooking the beautiful cathedral before joinining the locals on their nightly passeggiata with gelato. Sleep peacefully in this quiet residential zone feeling relaxed and inspired by your daily experiences at Bella Vista Lucca living la dolce vita!
