Villa and Setting


Villa San Rocco is a private home and the perfect venue for a variety of cultural, business and leisure pursuits. The main premises consist of a 10-bedroom, 17th Century Baroque villa, with an adjoining late-medieval wing and adjacent chapel. Behind the main gates is a gravel courtyard, with adequate parking for several cars; an olive grove, which overlooks the villa from the hillside; and, at the rear, an original formal garden and pool.

The villa is situated in the rural hillside village of Benabbio, overlooking the spa town of Bagni di Lucca. It offers accessibility to the principal Tuscan cities (Florence, Lucca, Siena) in an authentic, historic setting. Pisa airport is an hour away, with shops/supermarkets and other amenities under a 10-minute drive. Benabbio itself has a grocer’s, newsagent/tobacconist’s and two excellent restaurants all within walking distance.


San Rocco is flexible to your needs. The atmosphere is one of traditional hospitality in a home environment, with several large and unique spaces suitable for workshops, presentations and entertainment on a grand scale. All bedrooms have their own bathrooms, all but one ensuite, and are decorated in various styles, from Napoleonic to Classical Roman. The principal Grand Salone is 70m² (760 square feet) and can easily be rearranged as required, be it for a seminar or a banquet. A converted attic directly above is ideal for yoga, meditation or simple relaxation.

The villa is served by two fully-equipped kitchens, along with a separate dining room, sitting room, TV/chill-out room and cellar complex. A spacious covered terrazzo, ideal for evening drinks and summer meals, commands spectacular views over the village and the Lima valley below.

Villa San Rocco is more than a hotel. With someone always onhand to assist, we offer a unique atmosphere where people can gather to learn, work or just enjoy themselves in a residence that has been lovingly and painstakingly brought back to life. If you require additional services such as cooking, cleaning, laundry etc, we can arrange it for you.
