Description from owner


Our small organic farm sits on a hill along Lucca’s beautiful northern countryside in the hamlet of Aquilea, with stunning views over the Valdottavo valley, the high peaks of the Apennines, and the National park in the distance. We produce our own olive oil, bake our own bread, make jams from our own fruit trees, prepare home-made yoghurt and classic Italian sauce from our own tomatoes, and grow a variety of vegetables.

Our solar powered and beautifully restored farmhouse has two comfortable, fully furnished apartments that will feel like home the moment you step inside! Each has its own entry on a lovely terrace where you can relax and enjoy outdoor dining, including pizza from a brick oven. At our above ground swimming pool, guests can enjoy sunbathing with an incredible view.
