The Experience

Enjoy a farmhouse breakfast under the white sails and gaze across the plains of Lucca. What you have here is a hamlet of historic houses immersed in 18th-century gardens, surrounded by olive groves and vines, and views as far as the eye can see.

Large groups can self-cater in the villas, but the central villa, and the old farmworkers’ dwellings (elegantly revived in a palette of Tuscan colours) are ideal for couples and B&Bers. Take a book to a sofa in the Pavilion, the charming old glasshouse where lemons once grew, or dream by the pool. When the sun goes down, there are lawns to lounge on, rose and herb gardens to wander, and a tennis court to keep you fit.

The owner lives in the main villa, Monica runs the office, and both are warm and delightful.

Accommodation

Reviews

Bedrooms are blissfully spacious and quiet; treasures of fine antiques, each with its own story, are tucked within. An inviting spot in the historic gardens is the delightful limonaia with its grotto-details, cushioned wicker furniture and natural light. Peace reigns indoors and out. Hard to leave this oasis, but the surrounding hills and Lucca offer many delights, too.

Lovely old house. Fabulous views. Great pool. We had 4 nights bed and breakfast. Ate in on several nights and enjoyed good simple, tasty food.

Karen

An absolutely wonderful villa high in the hills above Lucca with wonderful views down into the valley! We had 3 nights B&B there and would have loved to have been there for longer. Monica and Marcello couldn't have been more helpful and we would love to return another year.

Location

The neighbourhood

Here, tucked into the hills above Lucca, there are numerous places in the grounds in which to find a peaceful nook. It's a 10-minute drive downhill to the closest cluster of shops and cafes, and the landscape’s curves and inclines are great for bikers. For walkers, there’s a wine estate to visit up the road, and many hiking trails in the hills. Although you’ll need a car to get around, you’ll find it hard to leave.

Introducing

Marcello Salom

The estate has been in Marcello’s family since 1576. A delightful host, he lives on a separate floor but in the same villa as the B&B, and he manages guests directly. Nothing could ruffle Monica's feathers! Manageress for 20 years, she is very warm and friendly. A gentle dog completes the picture and keeps the couch warm in reception.
