Description

Villa Ambrosia definitely delights the senses with its pleasing mixture of stunning scenery, fragrant gardens, and historical relevance. Set in a lovely area just outside of Lucca, the villa enjoys soothing views of rolling hillsides and is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. Once a 17th century convent inhabited by Cappucini monks, the villa has been recently painstakingly restored and renovated back to its Tuscan glory. Beautiful, old frescoes, wood beamed ceilings, and hand-made tiles now complement the modern amenities installed by the present owners. With a fully-equipped professional kitchen, seating for up to 20 guests, and a garden house, Villa Ambrosia is the perfect venue for weddings, banquets, conferences, and meetings. The garden has been brought back to its original design of giardino al’Italiana and is now full of flowers and lemon pots. The large pool, surrounded by cascades of roses, welcomes the guests to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The pool area is furnished with large sun umbrellas, deck chairs, sun beds, and a table with chairs for al fresco dining.

The separate Garden House (100 sqm) is organized for weddings, banquets, and meetings. With tables and chairs, and movable walls, the area can be divided into 4 rooms.

The owners (a professional couple) occupy a completely independent apartment on the ground and first floor in the center of the villa. The attic houses another independent apartment (with separate staircase) for the caretaker/gardener.

The rates include:

• Buffet welcome dinner on arrival - (wines included)

The elegant dining room has seating for over 22 guests. The fully-equipped, professional kitchen offers a fridge/deep freezer, dishwasher and 2nd industrial dishwasher, oven, pizza oven, professional stove with six burners, two sinks, microwave, toaster, two American-style coffee makers, Kitchen Aid mixer, and dish warmer. Adjacent to the kitchen is a service bathroom for the staff, laundry room with washing machine and dryer, and ironing facilities. Also on the ground floor is a study/office with computer, two powder rooms, and an elevator (suitable for wheelchairs).

The first floor of the villa consists of six double bedrooms, of which five are suites. The suites are furnished with two bathrooms, closet, safe, sitting area with double sofa bed, a mini fridge/bar, Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, and hair dryer. All the king size beds can be separated into two twin beds upon request.

The second floor of the villa consists of the remaining five double bedrooms, of which two are suites. Bedrooms 10 and 11 share a bathroom with shower. Again, all the bedrooms are equipped with a mini fridge/bar, safe, Satellite TV, CD player, and Wi-Fi.

Within walking distance of Villa Ambrosia is the quaint village of Segromigno in Monte, offering a supermarket, bank, bar, pizzeria, post office, hair dresser, and general shopping needs. Nearby are the towns of Lucca (7 km), Pisa (9 km), Florence (55 km), and Siena (about 120 km). The Puccini Opera Festival, in Torre del lago Puccini, is about 30 km away. A visit to the coast is about a half hour by car (Viareggio). Cinqueterre is about 1.5 hours.

Our extended family of 18 spent 7 days at Villa Ambrosia which was more wonderful than we could imagine with delicious meals by 'TasteMotions' chef Valentino & his wife, Larisa and tours of the countryside by 'Tuscan Drivers'. Our host, Daniela was gracious and recommended nearby wineries and palces to visit. We will never forget this very special family reunion at Villa Ambrosia

This Villa is amazing. What makes it extra special are the owners, Daniela and Narciso. Daniela and Narciso do everything first class. From the minute you enter the complex you have the feeling you are at home. There is spotless care in every aspect of the Villa. The bedrooms all have great beds. The common areas are large and were ideal for our group of 24. The kitchen is a professional kitchen that is stocked with every pot, pan, and utensils imaginable. There are several outdoor areas to enjoy, but in particular the covered lanai is exceptional for eating “al fresco”. The pool area is a great place to relax and unwind after a full day of touring. We also took advantage of the chef and sommelier, Valentino and Larissa. It is hard to put into words the exceptional meals that they served us, but more than this, they are great people. The food was the best we had in our 21 day trip. We were able to customize our meals and special care was given to members of our group that had allergies. We spent at least three hours every night eating, drinking, and singing, and what was very special were Daniela, Valentino, and Larissa joining us. This was our second visit and was as memorable as the first. On our first visit Daniela threw us a “surprise 40 the anniversary party” complete with aperitifs, a catered meal, and wine. Leaving this place was very hard to do, like leaving family after a visit…hugging, tears and smiles!

The villa exceeded expectations in every way. It was more beautiful than the photos, particularly the setting, mountains and all. The kitchen was better stocked with staples such as tea, sugar, salt pepper etc and equipment than expected. Towel service was more frequent than the once a week indicated in the introductory materials. The bedrooms were true to the photos and all spacious and comfortable.Mila and Daniella were very helpful with suggestions and directions and were warm and friendly. Daniella invited us all into her home before our Friday night fairwell dinner for a tour and a drink- a very nice touch!

Hello from the UK, it has now been 2 months since our wonderful wedding at the beautiful Villa Ambrosia and we wanted to write and thank you formally for all your help and kindness during the planning of our wedding and also the amazing hospitality you provided during the wedding weekend in July 2013. We absolutely loved spending three days at the Villa and our friends and family were overwhelmed by how beautiful the Villa and grounds are. None of our guests wanted to leave after the wedding and everyone would love to return. For many it was quite simply the best wedding they had ever attended, which was wonderful to hear. Please pass on our thanks to your family and your staff who helped make our wedding weekend so special. We will never forgot staying at Villa Ambrosia and our wonderful wedding day. We thought you may want to see a few photographs from the wedding, which show the Villa looking absolutely stunning. We will never forgot our wonderful wedding day and thank you for making it so very special” Thank you so much again for welcoming us into your home and for everything you did to help make our wedding weekend so special.
