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.
