Average time to visit
The Mediterranean climate makes Tuscany a year round destination. It is important to remember that the main tourism season stretches from mid-April to the end of September with July and August being peak months. The best time to visit Tuscany is in the quieter part of the season, from April to June and from September to October when weather is usually good, prices lower and there are "fewer" tourists. Many have also discovered the advantages of visiting during the "low season" (winter and early spring) as rates are lower and the reduced number of tourists is visible. Castello del Nero is closed during January and February.

A private Tuscan paradise set in a 100-acre estate in the rolling hills of Lucca. The 15th century villa and adjoining Tuscan farmhouse bring eloquent space for friends and family to relax in breath-taking beauty with unparalleled facilities.
Villa Bella Anima is a beautifully restored 15th century, three-storey villa, oozing with character whilst boasting high-end furnishings and stylish Italian design throughout. The villa has plenty of space with an elevator connecting the three floors giving access to the stunning living and billiard room, designer kitchen and five en-suite bedrooms. One of the suites has a huge walk-in closet, an amazing rain shower and a Jacuzzi, while the other hosts a treadmill, a massage table and a multi-functional shower and hammam. It has been restored to the highest of standards conserving the architectural heritage while offering the most modern comforts and high-tech luxury.
From the villa a beautiful courtyard adjoins to the farmhouse with three further bedrooms; a perfect area to meet under the shade of bougainvillea in the alfresco lounge for sundowners between the two properties. Beyond the olive trees, along a cypress-lined path, you are faced with a sweeping panorama across the Lucca valley, and the large swimming pool, sunning area and Balinese massage pavilion. Next to the pool is a covered Bali-style Summer Kitchen, the perfect spot to relax sipping a glass of wine while admiring the spectacular views, or to enjoy a lunch in the open air served at the sandstone dining table.
Villa Bella Anima is just 11 km from the city of Lucca, one of the jewels of Tuscany. A charming and historical city, Lucca is well known for its impressive surrounding walls built during the Renaissance. Lucca is a feast of churches and towers, antique markets and old book shops, Medieval and Renaissance architecture and Romanesque churches.
