Located only 30 minutes from the walled medieaval City of Lucca, less than an hour from the beach and just 90 minutes from Florence, Podere Vitiana is situated 500M down an unmade road, in a peaceful and panoramic position on the edge of the Orrido di Botri nature reserve (where it is possible to have a guided walk of the ‘canyon’).

Some of the land is dedicated to vines, olives, fruit trees and vegetables, while the rest comprises luxuriant woodland full of all kinds of animals and numerous species of birds, including many birds of prey. This is a nature lovers’ paradise with plenty of trekking routes and is an ideal recipe for a totally peaceful holiday whilst still being close to tourist towns.

For local services, there is a bar and butchers in the village a 15 minute walk away, and just 3kms down to the main road, there are bars, bakery, pasticceria, pharmacy, restaurant, and train station for easy exploring. Supermarkets are a short drive away as well as a wider selection of restaurants.

There are two properties for rent on site, and here we are offering both together, to give a larger group a little privacy between each other, with exclusive use of the pool

The Metato is a building, and old chestnut drying house, dating to 1713 which has been lovingly restored into a little two bedroom detached house. Whilst great for a young family the property also has a romantic feel for couples…

The Tuscany region

Located only 30 minutes from the walled medieaval City of Lucca, less than an hour from the beach and just 90 minutes from Florence, Podere Vitiana is situated 500M down an unmade road (a little narrow and steep in places), in a peaceful and panoramic position on the edge of the Orrido di Botri nature reserve (where it is possible to have a guided walk of the 'canyon').

The properties are situated in the midst of a working farm of 5.5 hectares, some of which is dedicated to the cultivation of vines, olives, fruit trees and vegetables, while the rest comprises luxuriant woodland full of all kinds of animals and numerous species of birds, including many birds of prey. This is a nature lovers' paradise with plenty of trekking routes and is an ideal recipe for a totally peaceful holiday whilst still being close to tourist towns.
