This three-house hamlet sits on top of the green hills of Matraia, once used by the farmers of the area, then as housing for nuns, and finally as a kindergarten for local children. The property has a panoramic view overlooking the valley as far as Lucca. L'Asilo 1 is an apartment in the older building, dating back to the 14th century. The structure was built out of stone found in the area, with thick walls to keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. A large pergola in front of this building welcomes guests and provides space for outdoor dining with a fantastic view of the valley. L'Asilo 2 was once a stable for hay storage. It is built of stone with a wood-beam roof and has its own pergola for dining al fresco in the terraced back garden. The third building in the hamlet is inhabited by the owners, who are on hand to prepare traditional Tuscan meals or a pizza party in the wood oven. Each of the apartments has its own outdoor area with a barbecue and outdoor dining area. They share a salt-water swimming pool (13m x 5.5m) with spectacular views over the valley.
