Only 7 kilometers from the city centre of Lucca,the Villa Grabau offers a lovely,romantic environment: the wonderful English Garden is a special example of botanical garden and keeps trees from all over the world;absolutely do not miss it in autumn....the colours are the most beautiful you can find in the area;and in summertime it is the perfect place to spend a lovely time.The Limonaia is a real jewel, perfectly preserved from 1640; the Italian Garden will appear to you as if coming suddenly from the past,with its valuable collection of lemon trees in rich old terracotta pots;the elegant groundfloor of the Villa is totally furnished and the rooms show amazing frescoes.

I visited this wonderful historical villa last summer with a group of italian friends, although not so big we were deeply immersed in the beauty of an old forgotten past, when people travelled with horses, Puccini's music was in the air, and women showed their big dressed and umbrellas (there is a lovely collection of these in one room of...

My husband and I got married in Villa Grabau at the end of May. Our nearest and dearest traveled to Lucca to share in our day and we were thrilled to be able to host our wedding in such stunning surroundings. The gardens are extremely well maintained and it was an incredible experience to hold the dinner and dancing in... More

In June this year, I had my wedding at Villa Grabau and it was truly the most magical place you could ever wish to get married. The staff spent an extreme amount of time and effort getting all the gardens ready for the big day, putting down new gravel, new plants in the gardens, and all the effort paid off.... More

Lucca has some incredible villas, and Villa Grabau is definitely a top choice! It has lovely gardens and the lower floors are visit-able. You may even have a wedding at this venue, but I am not sure the cost.

This was a beautiful villa, with gardens which are attractive but probably not of huge interest to the serious gardener. The villa itself is only accessible by guided tour, as items are precious, and is the ground floor only (the family live on the upper floors). It's interesting to see how it would have been furnished, and to hear the... More

My favourite time to visit Villa is November. The whole park is busting in many autumn colours, there is nobody around and one can enjoy autumn warm sunshine while strolling in the park. Buildings of villa are old and fascinating. Pool building is left open at all times and curious people can peak inside if they want. Nature is taking... More

We celebrated our wedding at Villa Grabau in May 2014. The venue is flawless and boasts 4 different and equally beautiful/distinct settings within the grounds: all of which are hire-able. We were married inside the villa, had aperitivo on the manicured lawns, and the reception inside the Limonaia. We didn't even need to leave the villa for the photographs as... More
