Villa il Rifugio is a spectacular residence perched high on the green hills outside of Lucca. Its particularly elongated form and hillside position bring to mind an ancient strategy of dominion and protection, as if the villa had been built to effectively monitor the movements of any unannounced visitor. 

The villa is located just a few kilometers from the marvelous town of Lucca, famous for its original city walls which are just one aspect of the city's timeless beauty that over the centuries has remained intact. Truly a gem of a Tuscan town, Lucca is easily navigable on foot or by bike and is full of delightful and romantic surprises appearing around every corner.

Throughout the villa guests can admire precious paintings and art objects along with wrought iron and silver accents.
