Overview

Il Monticello is a beautiful wine and olive oil producing farm estate extending to approximately 25 hectares. It's situated on a splendid hillside with great views 10km north-east of Lucca and 1.5km above the small village of Segromigno in Piano where you will find a supermarket, bank, bar, restaurant and several small shops. A very large supermarket Esselunga is approximately 5km away. There are plenty of good restaurants in the area. Having the nearby village within walking distance is a real bonus to holidaying on this lovely farm estate.

You are also well-placed to visit all the major sights of central Tuscany since Lucca, Pisa, Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, the Garfagnana mountains and the coast of Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore are all within easy travelling distance and worth a day out. In the Lucca area there is an abundance of churches and famous villas to explore. Families with children will enjoy the famous Pinocchio Park at Collodi only 10km away.

A short stroll away from the winery and the reception there is a beautiful, completely restored farmhouse with three carefully prepared character apartments and nearby there is also a detached converted barn of outstanding beauty. The properties have huge terraces for eating out of doors from where you can enjoy the panoramic views down to the village and to Lucca in the distance. All the bedrooms have air conditioning and fly screens. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available in all the properties.

In the garden there is a lovely swimming pool for shared use of the guests (13m x 7m, depth 1.10-1.40m) and a small play area for young children. The pool is open from 8am to 8pm and is closed on Saturday mornings for maintenance till 11.30am. In the olive groves there are also four gazebos - perfect for relaxing in the shade. Near the farmhouse you will also find two barbecue areas.

Notes: The welcoming owners offer all their guests a free wine tasting. Typical Tuscan dinners and cooking lessons can also be arranged. In mid/low seasons short stays are accepted at pro-rata price - minimum 4 nights. Dogs are allowed on request.
