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.

    "Really enjoyed our stay!!"

    09/28/2019

    We've visited Agriturismo Principato for 5 nights. Ariana, our contact, welcomed us at the restaurant. Together we drove to the appartement. Everything was perfectly fine. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine from the farm itself. The appartement was really clean and the kitchen is fully equipped. We visited the restaurant 3 times because it was on walking distance so we could both enjoy a glass of wine. We would definitely recommand to go there at least once :) Ariana facilitated a wine and olive oil tasting for just the 2 of us at the "production facility" of the farm.

    Nothing but positive words for this agriturismo!!

    "Great stay"

    08/17/2019

    I stayed with my husband and daughter in the apartment "il canarino", furnished with a lot of style and attention to every detail. One of the things that struck us was finding a bottle of the oil they produced for free, a sign that the managers love to "pamper" guests. There were 2 changes of towels and kitchen towels (never before) and pool towels, not to mention tea kettle, toaster and microwave, all in very good condition and fully functional. Simone and Arianna were always available for any need you might have. Excellent dinner at the restaurant located in the property of 'Agriturismo. Arianna made us taste oil and wine with absolute professionalism and courtesy, congratulations! We'd love to come back if that happens.

    "Quiet and neat"

    04/20/2019

    We spent a very nice holiday week with our four children in the house "il cavallo". It was very pleasant that each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom. The whole property is very well maintained and full of style. The employees are extremely courteous and friendly. The children enjoyed the pool very much. The only possibility for improvement we see is the gas stove and oven in the kitchen of the house "il cavallo". The stove was not hot properly and should be checked.

    Very recommendable is the restaurant "Osteria Del Vecchio Olivo" which can be reached after 200 meters on foot. We had a delicious meal there.

    Thank you very much for the nice holidays and we will definitely come back again.
