The agriturismo

Located on the rolling hillside of Montecarlo in Tuscany, an medieval hamlet near the art cities of Lucca, Pisa, and Florence. Renovated ancient country homes in full respect of Tuscan traditions, it’s the perfect place for a relaxing vacation and for rediscovering the pleasure of the countryside. Certified by the Regione Toscana for the quality of its services.

The accommodation

An agriturismo especially for those in search of relaxing with family and friends, far from the hectic city life, and the ideal starting point for visits to cities of great interest, like Lucca, Pisa and Florence. The accommodations La Principessa and Il Cavaliere are spacious and cozy, suited to host small groups and families. The rooms all have a private bath and are unique for their furnishings: renovated though maintaining unaltered typical rural styles but with modern-day comforts.


The living room of each accommodation is sun-filled, with sofas, and a LED TV. The kitchen, a prefect combination between tradition and modernity, has a work station, oven, dishwasher, and fridge. There is also a blow dryer and washing machine.

The independent home, La Principessa, formerly a hay barn, offers a relaxing reading room upon a wooden mezzanine overlooking the living room. For relaxation lovers  there is a spacious outdoor area and panoramic pool overlooking the nearby Valdinievole. Also nearby, guests may rediscover traditional Tuscan cooking at the restaurant Osteria del Vecchio Olivo.

Activities and surrounding

Guests may visit the farm’s vineyards and olive groves: a stroll amidst Tuscan country life. The staff also organizes visits to olive presses with explanations and info on the production cycle of oil making (the farm produces excellent olive oil). Thanks to collaboration with the celebrated Osteria del Vecchio Olivo, guests may enjoy guided food tastings of traditional dishes from Tuscany and Lucca’s countryside.

For those who love art, culture, and history, you may visit the picturesque medieval hamlet of Montecarlo (on foot) with its imposing Fortress, and the nearby city of Lucca (circa 20 minutes by car) to see the impressive medieval walls, the ancient amphitheater square, the historic center and the splendid villas of Lucca. Also here you’ll find the new museum of contemporary art (which houses important masters like Picasso, Miró, Balla, Man Ray) and the traditional yearly event, Summer Festival.

Located in upper Tuscany, the farm allows its guests to also easily reach other art cities in the region as well as some wonderful beaches on the coast. The agriturismo is located exactly halfway between Pisa (40 min) and Florence (40 min). In 40 minutes guests may also reach the famous beaches at Forte dei Marmi and Pietrasanta.

For those in search of relaxation: Grotte Termali di Monsummano Terme (unique) or the famous Terme di Montecatini.

    "Here's where to find peace"

    09/19/2018

    We spent 15 days in this wonderful farm with my husband and my dog ??Rufus; say that it was all wonderful, it seems simplistic, both for the hospitality of the owners and for the reception received by the staff: Luca ready to solve any eventuality, the gardener and the cleaning ladies, an exceptional staff present but in a very silent and discreet. We stayed at Canary a wonderful two-room apartment structured on two floors where virtually nothing is missing, from dishes to small appliances, super used personal barbecue, all furnished with great care and respect of the Tuscan farmhouse Oil and wine tasting have made our stay even more pleasant. We were so happy that we have already made the pre reservation for the new year. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    "PRACTICALLY PERFECT STAY"

    09/16/2018

    We stayed at the farm for a week in late August 2018, we were 4, two adults and two girls plus our Labrador. The Frantoio apartment, great for 2 people, has been perfectly adapted by adding 2 single beds for girls. The apartment has everything you need on vacation, from the washing machine to the dishwasher. Air conditioning. Spectacular views of the valley and a beautiful swimming pool just a few meters away used to the best of us all. Very quiet area but at the same time 5 minutes drive from the beautiful Montecarlo. Stay practically perfect thanks to the professionalism of Luca who welcomed us at best, with a welcome gift appreciated (oil and wine of their production). We will definitely be back and can not recommend it. Excellent experience.

    "Quiet relaxation comfort"

    06/29/2018

    Farmhouse surrounded by greenery and peace. Silence reigns supreme. Apartment with all the possible comforts ... dishwasher ... washing machine ... microwave ... toaster ... mosquito nets ... crockery of all types and pots of all sizes. Truly all the possible comforts. Nice and clean pool. Sun loungers also in your garden and barbecue with charcoal. Good starting point to visit Lucca Pisa Florence and Pistoia. We were greeted by Mr. Luca who proved to be very courteous and helpful. I recommend everyone to stay in this magnificent place.
