For those looking for a unique atmosphere of the past without renouncing to all modern comforts, this historical palace, dating back to the 13th Century, is the ideal place. Set in the charming medieval hamlet of Ghivizzano Castello, it used to belong to ancient noble families of Lucca who made several architectural changes during the centuries, transforming the original fortified palace into an hunting lodge but still keeping its medieval structure. In 1648 the palace passed to the Buonvisi family, one of the most powerful families of the Republic of Lucca, and it still belongs to their descendants who recently made a meticulous restoration work creating an uncommon balance between past and modern. The interiors are furnished with antiques and old paintings who have been belonging to the family for Centuries, thus giving to the property a unique atmosphere of past times. At same time great attention has been given to quality and comfort. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, Sat Tv and wi-fi connection. A particular feature are the old cellars that have now been transformed into a private wellness centre including a sauna, a vitality pool and an emotional shower. The property takes its name from the impressive "chiusa" (an enclosed Italian style garden, set just across the small street facing the palace ) where the old fish tank has now been converted into a beautiful swimming pool. In the same Italian garden a barbecue and a pizza oven are at clients' disposal for outdoor meals. The area known as Garfagnana, a mountain region north of Lucca, between the Apuan Alps and the Tuscan-Appennines, is renowned for its beauty. The location is a perfect place for discovering the several interesting medieval villages of the surroundings, rich in traditions and local products which represent a great culinary and historic heritage. At short distance is the medieval town of Barga (8 km away) with several nice restaurants, also renowned for an international Opera festival held every July and for a Jazz festival, and the thermal station of Bagni di Lucca (11 km away). The town of Lucca is less then 30 km away. Maid service included 2 hours a day, 5 days per week.
