The agriturismo

In an old Tuscan stone farmhouse in Lunigiana, with a swimming pool surrounded by hectares of cultivated fields, olive groves, pastures, lawns with streams and woodland, the agriturismo offers a pleasant stay filled with tradition, tranquillity and fine cuisine, prepared using fresh seasonal produce, most of which comes from the farm itself.

The accommodation

The 9 guest rooms, of which one is suitable for disabled guests and their travelling companions, are spread over two different farmhouses, both offering access to the garden and swimming pool.

The restaurant is located inside the old wine cellars. The swimming pool is fitted with a telescopic cover, inside which the climate is controlled, meaning it can also be used during the cooler months, the evenings and on rainy days.

Raised by around 2 metres, and with views of the estate, the “whirlpool turret” with relaxation zone leads on to a small wellbeing centre with sauna, Turkish bath and multi-sensory shower.

The farm’s meats are exquisite: from the chickens to the goats, the pigs to the cows, all animals are reared outdoors and fed with natural feeds.

The olive grove, managed without the use of chemicals, produces excellent oil, with a fruity and slightly spicy flavour, obtained from the cold pressing of the high quality freshly gathered typical olives (Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino).

There is also a 1500 square metre vegetable garden, and free-range chickens to provide fresh eggs.

Activities and surrounding

The ancient Via Francigena passes along the border of the agriturismo, popular with hikers and believers from all over Europe; the surrounding area is also ideal for walking and horse riding along the pathways which wind through the woodland.

Lunigiana, known as the “land of 100 castles” is perfect for those who love culture, folklore and food and wine.

    "Stopover in transit was a great experience"

    05/18/2016

    We made on his way to Elba here a stopover. We were welcomed by the hosts very welcoming. Our accommodation was excellent and very spacious, even with terrace and evening sun. The whole area is like a small park created and is well maintained. The other area is close to nature and especially great we found the "course" that leads to the edge of the forest to the fields and woods of the estate. During a tour in the evening or a jogging round in the morning has a great nature experience. The path, with careful attention and effort applied (simple seating, Wegschneisen in the forest and Holzbrücklein on streams ..). It is not self-evident that someone makes the effort that guests can practically walk from the front door directly into the beautiful landscape. The food in the evening on site is recommended and extremely inexpensive. The dishes are typical of the region and many foods are produced on the farm itself and can be purchased there as well. All in all a top performance for a super fair price.

    "Weekend Immaculate"

    12/30/2015

    We spent a beautiful weekend of the Immaculate !!! First owners very welcoming, friendly and helpful ... thanks for the fantastic snacks !! Room clean, tidy and spacious for a family of 4. Restaurant with hearty, delicious, all fresh stuff and their production. A farm with lots of green, well cared for and children's playground. Logistically strategic for visiting the sea and internal lunigiana because easy to get highway. Too bad that the pool is not available in the winter months ... we will return in the spring to try it! Stefania thanks, Thomas, Lawrence and Francis.

    "very nice country hotel, absolutely recommendable"

    10/05/2015

    We were in August a week in the apartment. The whole area is very attractive, well maintained and perfectly clean !! The apartment is big enough and great with the private terrace. The pool is very clean and really great! The breakfast is great, dinner in the restaurant every day was perfect. Especially great starters and the steaks. The T-Bone is highly recommended! The owners and the staff is very attentive and helpful. It was a wonderful week and we would gladly come once again!
