House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
A building that once housed an olive press used by villagers to press oil from their yearly harvest, VILLA OLIVETO is surrounded by beautiful terraced olive groves. Its recent renovation has converted this charming structure into a comfortable home with swimming pool, offering views down the valley towards the medieval walled town of Lucca.
During its restoration large ancient terracotta vases were found embedded in the cellars. Once these would have held the freshly pressed oil which was a valuable and prized commodity.

countryside there is such a variety of wondrous things to see and do. Italy's unique culture stems from its history of being many individual states/provinces.
The countries shape means that the coast is easily accessible from practically anywhere in the country.
There are many fantastic things to do in the
local area. As well as all the normal tourist activities available there is a plethora of historical churches/monasteries that are well worth a visit. A trip here
