La Chiusa is a vacation rental villa in Lucca for 12 people La Chiusa is a remodeled private villa in Lucca built starting in the 15th c. Fully air-conditioned, it sleeps 12 people in comfort with 6 bedrooms.

Enjoy the elegantly furnished living areas that open out to the terrace and garden with a pool.  House-keeping is included and chef is available to prepare dinners.

Villa La Chiusa is located 2 km outside the walled city of Lucca with downtown Florence about 1 hour away by car or train, half an hour to the sea; the ideal location to explore Tuscany and beyond.

Ancient stone walls surround this vast park-like garden planted with persimmon fruit trees, roses, wisterias, and grapevines.

The sunny terrace is lined by terracotta planters with a profusion of geraniums. The outdoor "al fresco" seating group is a pleasant setting for coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening. See more photos from the garden

For your enjoyment in the summer-time, inside the private garden is a 26 foot diameter newly built round in-ground swimming pool.

Lucca was made famous and wealthy centuries ago by the silk trade. The artist-owner has a private drapery studio with historical fabrics on the property.
