External description: The Uffizi Apartment Lucca is located on the ground floor of Palazzo Guinigi, a prestigious building located in the hillside village of Matraia, just a few kilometers from the wonderful medieval city of Lucca with its many attractions. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and secluded grounds with specimen trees and stunning views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside, the building has outdoor spaces, shared with other guests and worthy of a luxurious residence, such as a small gym, the historical belvedere terrace and a panoramic outdoor swimming pool (built on a natural terrace on the hillside) with sunbeds and parasols. The light breezes and shaded areas of the estate grounds provide a welcome respite from the summer heat of the Tuscan towns and cities.

The light breezes and shaded areas of the estate grounds provide a welcome respite from the summer heat of the Tuscan towns and cities. A small grocery shop selling a range of products, including fresh local Tuscan produce together with a family owned pizzeria are located in the village of Matraia within a 10-15 minute walk from the estate. A locally owned 'eaterie', specialising in local Tuscan food and produce is also within a 10 minute scenic walk of the estate. The palazzo is a unique example of 16th century Italian architecture and thanks to a very careful restoration over recent years. It has been restored to its former glory retaining its original Tuscan character and elegance.

Due to its strategic position on the peak of a valley, the entire estate offers guests wonderful views over the surrounding hills and valleys, and provides easy access to a considerable range of services (transport, shops). The enchanting Lucca - traditionally named the 'city of a hundred churches' for the large number of places of worship within the city center – has a wide variety of historical buildings, fashionable shops, high quality restaurants and atmospheric bars and cafés. Moreover, the town is the venue for many and varied musical and cultural events throughout the year, such as Lucca Summer & Winter Festival e il Lucca Comics & Games.
