Al Mennucci was originally an old hayloft that has been converted into a delightful cottage. It is on a superb location surrounded by olive groves and pine trees, high on the hills, 15 kms to the southeast of Lucca in Pieve di Compito.
The interior of this house is equipped with all modern facilities. The swimming pool is perfectly situated on one side of the house to enjoy the beautiful views. Close to the pool area are the stone-built barbecue and pizza oven, an outdoor shower and an alfresco dining area. There is also a small guesthouse with a double bedroom and bathroom 20 meters from the house, near the driveway.
The secluded... location with its own private road ensures peace and tranquility for the guests of Al Mennucci. This road lasts for 1 km and it is unsealed, therefore not suitable for low sports cars.

SWIMMING POOLS - Swimming pools are not open all year. If your rental period is outside the period May 30th to October 3rd, please check with us that the pool can be opened. Swimming pools are not enclosed with fences and there are no lifeguards. Clients’ use of the swimming pool is at their own risk.
HEATING - Heating is available at an additional charge of 50 Euro per day and must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.
WATER AND ELECTRICITY - Please note that most of the properties that we offer are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.
INTERNET CONNECTION - Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
LOW SLUNG CARS - VANS – MINIBUSES - Most of our houses are located in the countryside. Some of them can be accessed only by unsealed roads and driveways. We therefore advise people intending to take a sports or low-slung car on holiday, to check with us first whether the access to the property allows for such a car. We advise against the use of vans and minibuses. Please always check with us, at the time of booking, if you are planning to use this type of vehicle when staying at one of our properties.Read more

We all had a great trip. Al Mennucci is an escape from daily life as you are literally on top of a hill looking over Tuscany. The backyard was the highlight of the accommodation - great pool, lots of deck chairs, lovely grass, and a big covered entertainment area. The kitchen facilities were also very good. - Guy P., , Australia
