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.
