An elegant 19th-century Tuscan hotel with thermal pools and a natural cave – includes breakfast, optional dinner, plus spa and dining discounts

In stunning rolling parklands dotted by fragrant flower gardens, ancient trees and olive groves, the early 19th-century Grotta Giusti is an enticing destination for delicious Tuscan fine dining, rejuvenating spa treatments and slow ambles through the Lucca countryside. The villa is beautifully decorated with ornate antique furniture, frescoed lounges and Carrara marble bathrooms.

The restorative properties of the region's thermal waters have long been known to locals and the unique spa services at Grotta Giusti are its crowning glory. Guests can enjoy the vast outdoor thermal pool, rich in bicarbonate, sulphate, calcium and magnesium, and heated to a toasty 34 degrees, as well as the stunning natural cave that makes up the spa complex. Stretching more than 200 metres below the hotel, you can detoxify with natural steams in temperatures ranging from 28 to 34 degrees.

There are a variety of modern and age-old Oriental treatments on offer at the hotel and it's even possible to go scuba diving in the underground lake. There are guided hikes through the countryside, and a fantastic 18-hole golf course just three kilometres away.
