Upon entering this loft-style penthouse apartment you will be immediately struck by the chic interior design, whitewashed Tuscan feature roof, abundant natural light, spaciousness and Italian antiques and art that complete this penthouse apartment.
Comfortable casual sofas perfect for relaxing, socialising or entertaining accommodate large groups in the stylish entry living zone. Daydream gazing over ancient rooftops, lay about perusing Italian history books provided for guests and savour the tranquillity of living in a penthouse. Or if more action is your style, enjoy movies on the large screen TV, play lively card games or turn up the music for your evening prosecco.
Dining choices are endless at BVL. Whip up your favourite culinary experiences, take a group cooking course or invite our in-villa chef to indulge you.
Positioned between the living room and downstairs terrace, the large Tuscan kitchen meets modern day gourmet cooking requirements. The original open fireplace, cotto floors and copper pots will be a feast for the eyes while you prepare one with the Miele appliances, wine fridge and a superb AGA oven at your disposal. This kitchen dining area for 8 guests may just become your favourite gathering place!
The huge sun-soaked terrace directly off the kitchen provides another magnificent dining setting amidst flowering plants and kitchen herbs. Enjoy long leisurely lunches under the shade of the bamboo canopy and warm summer nights overlooking the golden duomo facade.
For a slightly more formal occasion or on cooler nights, enjoy an Italian feast for up to 12 guests on the long chestnut table in the living room complete with Italian linens and crystal glassware.
Downstairs the three large bedrooms all exude charm with Tuscan beams, natural colour palettes and views from every window. From a small hallway off the living room you will discover the Lucca queen bedroom with a large private ensuite bathroom. The Pinocchio room next door has two single beds and shares a large separate bathroom and full bath with the Puccini queen bedroom. A separate walk-in robe room provides additional clothing storage for the heaviest of travellers.
Upstairs is divided into two areas. The large Parent Retreat area with cathedral views is the perfect place to hide away for a nap on the large floor cushions or to catch up on your reading. On the other side of this room behind a curtain the Loft queen bedroom with large ensuite bathroom becomes a private haven. The BVL bedroom layout is perfect for several couples holidaying together or large families wanting privacy for children and adults.
A short staircase from the upper level takes you to the Loft terrace. The envy of Lucca, this rooftop entertaining zone has breathtaking 360° views across terracotta tiles, church spires and the surrounding Italian mountains. A spectacular backdrop to your morning coffee and yoga or sunset aperitivo with friends, this view will be etched in your memory forever.
The apartment is perfectly positioned in the heart of Lucca’s historical centre inside the ancient walls in a prestigious residential area. You are literally steps away from all the major landmarks, cultural experiences and culinary delights in this beautiful medieval pedestrian city.
