The Cottage Limonaia

Located on a large estate that has been making wine and olive oil for over a thousand years, the cottage Limonaia nestles in the hills 20 minutes from the medieval jewel town of Lucca in northwest Tuscany and about 40 minutes from the Tyrrhenian beaches and seaside villages of the Mediterranean.

The former barn, Limonaia is charmingly renovated as a two-bedroom, two-bath cottage of 70 sm. The main room is divided into kitchen, dining and seating areas. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking with a variety of herbs just outside the door. The views are expansive of the Lucca valley, the forest and the wine estate.

The cottage has hairdryers in each bathroom, an iron and ironing board and a rack on which to dry laundry. All linens for bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and dining area are provided. Limonaia has central heating for the winter. Afternoon breezes make the accommodations comfortable in the summer, fans are provided and windows are equipped with retractable screens.

Limonaia is well-furnished to complement its natural rustic surroundings while offering amenities for the 21st century guest and is situated in a serene and panoramic location. The entrance leads to a private garden area that overlooks the forest and wine estate and has its own outdoor eating area and lawn furniture. A pool sits on a nearby terrace. Guests are welcome to use the extensive herb gardens for ingredients in their cooking. Beautiful walks may be taken throughout the estate and its vineyards and olive groves.

Limonaia sleeps four, and the two bedrooms can be arranged as either two singles or a double and a single.

With notice, an excellent Lucchese cook is available. For longer stays cleaning service can be contracted. Our local chef Emanuela offers lunch or dinner cooking lessons. We can also arrange guided tours of Lucca and Tuscany as well as wine tastings. To add even more luxury and repose to your Tuscan experience, massages and yoga sessions are available.

When guests arrive they are greeted by maps of the area, restaurant recommendations, sight-seeing/shopping information and . . . a glass of wine and traditional Tuscan cookies.
