Restored Il Frantoio with olive grove gardens, valley views, floodlit pool & chef and maid
Description from the manager
Il Frantoio is an original olive press which has been charmingly restored to create a warm and welcoming home filled with original features. There are 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 the perfect place to enjoy relaxing summer evenings with close family and friends and experience a little piece of Tuscan heaven.
Olives have been collected from the terraced hillsides that surround Il Frantoio for centuries. Dating back to the 16th century as the private press for the Controni 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.
