Casa del Poeta

Located in the rolling hills south of Lucca and a short walk to a lovely local village, this marvelous villa looks over a pristine valley and is one of the most wonderful properties in the area. 

Casa del Poeta is a magnificent farmhouse, completely renovated in 2014 while at the same time maintaining the classic Tuscan traditions of style and simplicity. 

One of our favorite villas in Lucca, this charming home is nestled in a beautiful private estate that can be reached by a short graveled road from the small village, it is nestled among vineyards and olive groves retaining privacy while offering one of the most wonderful panoramic views of the valley and town of Lucca. Casa del Poeta can accommodate up to 8 people and it is a perfect place for those who value privacy and stunning views of the Tuscan countryside.

Florence’s world famous museums, the Uffizi and l’Accademia are only an hour from the villa. No stay in Lucca is complete without an excursion to Cinque Terre, the picturesque UNESCO world heritage site, which can be reached by train, car or private yacht. Sportsmen will love the area with four major golf courses fairly nearby – the Tirrenia Golf club in Pisa, Versilia on the coast, Montecatini Golf Club set in rolling olive groves, the stunning Pavoniere in Prato as well as the course at Poggio dei Medici close to Florence. 

Bike trails surround you in this magical place... cycle with friends and family past historical sights and vineyards ranging from leisurely to expert. Horseback riding is close to the villa – and lessons for all levels are available. The seaside town of Forte dei Marmi is only a short 25 minute drive.

Several lovely restaurants are within walking distance including the popular La Bimbotta a delightfully informal place to have a night of pizza and pasta. Cucina dello Scompiglio, and La Cecca is a famous trattoria only three minutes drive from the villa, and there are other close by gems including the fabulous seafood restaurant, Skipper as well as the amazing "Ceylon Pizza” which is only three minutes from the villa. There are several supermarkets nearby – the best of which is Esselunga.

The villa also offers an English speaking hostess to assist you during your stay and has also arranged, upon request to offer the services of the aforementioned Valentino to come and prepare a veritable feast which we guarantee will be one of the highlights of your Italian vacation to Tuscany!

  • Villa Dell'Emissario

    Villa dell'Emissario is a beautiful seventeenth-century villa, completely restored in recent years and furnished with great taste and refinement by the two owners, frequent travelers and lovers of art history. The villa is set in an extraordinarily panoramic place, not far from the medieval village of Celle sul Rigo and 6 km from San Casciano dei Bagni, a very popular wellness centre.

    From Rome they came to the lands of Casciano because Triario, wife of the Emperor Vitellius, had recommended the healthy properties of thermal waters to her friends. Coming along the Via Cassia, Capitoline patricians in the company of their lovers or their families, either by horse-drawn carriage or in the saddle, came to this place in the shadow of Mount Cetona, in the rugged lands taken from the Etruscans.


    In medieval times, the therapeutic reputation of the place did not fade. The town is known by the name of Bagno, or “Balneo”. And the baths of San Cassiano, later S. Casciano, were documented from 1081 when, among the assets of the powerful Abbey of St. Salvatore on Monte Amiata, the figure of “Curtis de Balneo” is mentioned.
    In the municipality, 43 hot springs gush out a total capacity of 5,400,000 litres per day, placing S. Casciano immediately behind the European celebrities of Aix-les-Bains and Karlsbad. Every ailment finds a cure here.

    But it is not only for the wellbeing of the body that people come to this town, hidden behind the folds of the Val d’Orcia, behind the rupestrian scales of Radicofani and not far but protected from highways and railways. People come to learn about a wild Tuscany, made up of few roads and those that there are, are nearly all white, impenetrable woods and bush, mysterious places of water, showerheads, gullies, clay.

  • Casa del Ponte e Vini

    Tuscany has kept well hidden, certain jewels where memories and the imagination conjure images of the past which are intense and unforgettable.  Casa del Ponte e Vini, which is an extremely well furnished dwelling, is the result of the conversion and restoration of an old water mill. 


    Completely rebuilt in local stone in 1606 by the Arrighi family, the water mill has shared the same history and dates from the same period as the nearby Abbey of St. Antimo (12th Century). As a mill it functioned perfectly until about 60 years ago.
