Borgo Bernardini was once the haven and wild boar hunting lodge retreat of Count Cosimo Bernardini of Lucca. With many features of the property dating back before the 1700s, Borgo Bernardini today has been restored to its former glory to become an elegant and exclusive Tuscan retreat immersed in a splendid parkland of ornamental ponds and antique fountains, time-forgotten courtyards and lemon scented Italian gardens.
A place for gatherings and a place for solitude it is a home of beauty, tranquility and comfort. With an array of delightful features and elegant furnishings, Borgo Bernardini is fully heated with AC throughout and has twelve spacious and individually styled bedrooms all with superb modern en-suite bath and shower rooms and each individually temperature controlled, linked to a central music system and equipped with telephone, hairdryer and bathrobes. Some rooms have hydro-massage and all open out to unique and unforgettable views across Italian gardens, olive groves and picturesque hills.
The gracious living overflows to the many reception rooms which include a wine library with private collection of Tuscan wines, card and billiard room, sun lounge, domed music room with log fireplace, grand dining room, drawing room/TV lounge and a warm and welcoming fully equipped Tuscan kitchen, the heart of the home. There is also a guest office equipped with computer, printer, internet facilities, fax, central music and security/surveillance system as well as workout room with weight and cardiovascular training equipment.
