The Experience

Extra virgin olive oil is pressed from the groves that clothe this ancient estate above the plains of Lucca. It is a place of elegance, tranquillity and space: a hamlet of houses immersed in 18th-century gardens surrounded by olive groves, cypresses, vines… and views as far as the eye can see.

From imposing ‘Buonvisi’ sleeping 16 to modest ‘Il Fienilino’, each villa and house has undergone an excellent renovation. Three have their own pool; the rest share one – with a panoramic view. You can cook for yourselves, eat in the restaurant, or book a chef just for you. When the sun goes down, lounge on the lawns, wander the rose gardens, and get fit on the grass tennis court.

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

Accommodation

Reviews

The pretty landscaping and patios around each apartment are perfect for meals and quiet activity outdoors. Go barefoot up to the pool and spend the day just taking in the views of the valley or quiet spaces in the olive groves. Those living and dining rooms with stone fireplaces are especially welcoming and warm. And if you don't want to cook, Monica knows where to send you for fine meals nearby.

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.
