Holiday farmhouse and hospitality:
your home from home

Our house was once used as a shelter for pilgrims travelling the Via Francigena. It is nestled in the hills between the plain of Lucca, the Versilia coast and the Apuan Alps; here, from peasant tradition and a love of nature, sprung the need to awaken a place. The holiday farmhouse is immersed in woods, cultivated fields, meadows and olive groves. Daily life carries on in total peace and the pervading tranquillity renders each thing and each movement almost out of time.
