The two farmhouses are located in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, where for many years we have been cultivating our olive trees and our vines for the production of wine and oil. For this reason you will be surrounded by the green and quiet of the Nature of the hills of Lucca, cuddled by the warm welcome of our staff and by the charm of their rooms, equipped with every modern comfort.

Each double room has a private bathroom with large shower box.

The farmhouses have independent gardens equipped with deckchairs, tables and garden chairs where you can enjoy the return to the peace and quiet of unspoilt nature, the slow pace, the joy of the country air and outdoor meals.

The swimming pool, open from May to October, is located in a large and spacious green area of the structure. It is just a few metres from the houses and has umbrellas, deckchairs and sunbeds dedicated to each single unit, in full respect of the distance and safety of our guests.

What makes our welcome even more unique? The direct production of certified wine and oil.
