Red Savannah’s collection of luxury villas in Lucca combines the city’s historical roots with all the modern-day luxuries you’d expect for a comfortable stay. Get lost in a good book and relax in the beautiful landscaped gardens at Villa Ortensia, owned by an artist, painter and sculptress, or let the kids roam free at L’Antico Mulino, brilliantly set up for families with its gated pool and children’s play area.
The beautifully preserved town of Lucca is an ideal base from which to explore northern or central Tuscany and the cities of Florence, Pisa and Siena. Encircled by impressive medieval walls, entering the city really is like stepping back in time – this was where Julius Caesar and Crassus met in the Roman era, while one of Italy’s best-loved composers Puccini was born here back in 1858. With its prestigious annual Summer Festival, lively local markets and many must-see sights including Lucca Cathedral, the Piazza del Anfiteatro, the Puccini Museum and the splendid botanical gardens, the city bursts with colour and activity in the summer months.
Once you’ve explored the city’s sights, the Tuscan beaches of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi are within easy reach and make a fun day trip from any of the properties in Red Savannah’s portfolio of luxury villas in and around Lucca.
The idea for Red Savannah was always based on a clear market need. A small team of the most experienced travel designers, supported by the latest technology and delivered with the lightest touch. In short, a travel company redefined for the 21st century.
