Villa La Guardia is perfectly located for those willing to live like locals and immerse themselves in the rhythms of the Tuscan countryside. The property is just over six miles from the ancient walls that surround Lucca, and under a mile from the little village of Ponte a Moriano, which offers all the essentials including a pharmacy, a restaurant and pizzeria as well as some local shops selling good wine.
After dipping yourself into Lucca’s rich history, beautiful churches and excellent restaurants you can drive a bit further and explore the Renaissance centres of Pisa, Siena and Florence, or decide to head out to the beaches of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi.
Villa La Guardia is the Gate House of a stretching estate that includes a variety of properties, all with private gardens and swimming pools. This charming house is perfectly designed for families looking for a practical base to explore Tuscany and enjoy some holiday time together. The large garden is equipped with an al fresco dining area and the swimming pool is securely gated providing extra safety for young children.
Nota Bene: priced-accordingly, this property, whilst entirely private, is located adjacent to the estate's arrival office, and some noise from vehicles, estate workers or their dogs should be expected.

Trust & Security
Action Fraud reported in 2018 that consumers lost over £7 million in online villa scams. We operate from a 'bricks and mortar' Office, are fully accountable, have full liability insurance and know all of our villas and their respective owners. Quite simply, we deliver on our promises.
Our sole aim is to understand the needs of each client and match them to exactly the right villa. We have no vested interest in any individual property.
All of our villas are listed by invitation only. No owner can pay for their property to be listed on the Red Savannah site.
The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more. And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites and other online sites will not only take on more or less any property willing to pay, but could expose the user to fraud. And if things go wrong, try getting hold of anyone to take responsibility! This is your holiday - Why risk it?
*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
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.
