Once an oil mill, now a comfortable home-from-home, this 16th century villa is ideal for those who want to enjoy a relaxing break in the Tuscan countryside. Surrounded by olive groves with views of the Vorno valley, the outside area is the perfect place to unwind. There’s a swimming pool open from May and a dining terrace for feasting on meals cooked by the personal chef. The interiors are a little dated, but we think that’s part of the charm. Location-wise, Lucca is a short drive away, and Pisa is reached in less than thirty minutes.
