A little piece of Tuscan heaven
The villa is an original olive press, called “frantoio”, which has been charmingly restored to create a warm and welcoming home filled with original features. Dating back to the 16th century as the private press for the Tuscan family who resided in the villa during the summer months, the “frantoio” was fully functional until 1997 collecting olives from the villagers of Vorno and pressing some of the best olive oil that Lucca has to offer. During its restoration, large and ancient terracotta vases were found embedded in the cellars that at one time would have held the freshly pressed oil which was a valuable and prized commodity.
The property offers 4 delightful bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms, for up to 8 guests and reception rooms include a large and comfortable lounge and a spacious Tuscan kitchen with eat-in breakfast room. The gardens are surrounded by terraced olive groves with valley views across the swimming pool to the medieval towers of Lucca.
This luxury resort is the perfect place to enjoy relaxing summer evenings with close family and friends.
