It’s beautiful throughout the seasons here. Come for a few days, join a Slow Tourism house party, sample local wines, listen to opera. Interiors are opulent, you can use a family kitchen, eat in a formal dining room, read quietly in the library, watch what you like in a multimedia room or drift outdoors. The pool will be cooling to float in while you gaze over gardenia-filled gardens and there are acres of olive groves and pine forests to roam.
Within the estate you’ll also find a tennis court and a gift shop selling local wine, soaps and Italian products. It’s a sociable place too, with a firepit and pizza oven area outside – you can gather friends or family and take the whole house, or get married in the beautiful chapel, designed by Lucchese architect Lorenzo Nottolini. Walk five-minutes to two trattorias, a bar and a village shop.
The famous pilgrim route, the Via Francigena runs through the estate for pleasant strolls.
