About The Experience

These two peaceful villas provide a great place for you and your guests to get away from it all. Enjoy a meal on the terrace prepared with the olive oil that’s made right on the estate while you take in the views of the Tuscan countryside below. Take a dip in the private pool, stroll through the stately, manicured garden, or play a game of chess on the human-size chess board. Comprised of two 16th century residences, these villas offers privacy and comfort for a large family or two, or a large group of friends.

Location Description

This villa is located in a tranquil location in the hills of Tuscany. A few kilometers away, the small village of San Martino in Freddana has shops, a bank, and a post office. Further down the hill, there’s the walled city of Lucca, the birthplace of composer Puccini, of Madame Butterfly fame. The beaches of the Versilian coast and Florence are also accessible for day trips.

Exterior Description

Composed of a main house and a nearby farmhouse, both dating back to the 16th century, these houses are set in a quiet location, high in the hills northwest of Lucca, with spectacular views over the surrounding scenery. A very well maintained garden encircles the house and a big oak tree provides a shady area that’s perfect for al fresco meals. There’s a private pool, and the property has its own olive grove, producing fine organic extra virgin olive oil under its own label. There’s also a giant chess board outside. The owners maintain two farmhouses on the same estate for their own use and for the use of the multilingual house manager, located about 80 meters from the villa.
