Villa Menocchi is a luxurious and aristocratic villa extended over 1300 square metres. Dating back to the fifteen century, the property's architectural style is a stunning example of the distinctive 'Villa Lucchese' design, as classified and recorded in 1500 by Samminiati, a local architect of great renown.

Great care was taken during the last restoration work to preserve all its original design features such as the terracotta-tiled floors; hand-carved wooden beamed ceilings and the traditional downstairs 'loggia' with its splendid arches, columns, and frescos. Wherever possible, natural, eco-friendly, typical Tuscan building materials were used for both the structure and furnishings, including stonework, terracotta, marble, dark wood and hand-crafted wrought-iron.

To complement the elegant, historical setting, Villa Menocchi has been furnished throughout with simple but high-quality antique furniture in a variety of traditional styles, featuring lovely natural wood and comfortable plush upholstery.

Villa Menocchi is a large, luxury, renaissance hillside villa overlooking the Lucca valley. While set in the countryside the villa is only 8 kms or 10 minutes from the historical centre.

Lucca is also the birthplace of the composer Giacomo Puccini, whose operas, La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly are among those frequently performed all over the world. The city is renowned to host a rich calendar of music events all over the year. Every year the 'Lucca Summer Festival' hosts an incredible line-up of international stars for live performances in Piazza Napoleone. These outdoor concerts held on a summer evening are an incredible experience. Past stars have included Anastacia, Lenny Kravitz, Moby etc. Lucca Comics and Games is an annual comic book and gaming convention. With around 140 thousand visitors, it offers an assorted mix of trade stalls, talks, screenings, workshops and exhibits. This international festival which lasts four to five days turns Lucca into a colourful amazing carnival with cosplay, music and a overall festive atmosphere.
