This very attractive property is located in an exceptionally panoramic position among olive groves, in the hills between Lucca and the Versilia coast. The house was meticulously restored from what were formerly an olive mill and a barn, now connected by a large entrance hall and terrace. The result is an impressive stone-built building. Attention has been given to using only traditional materials. The interiors have been tastefully furnished with great care in a country yet elegant style. The house has also been equipped with all modern facilities and each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom. The very well groomed garden and terraces offer the guests many lovely corners where they can sit outside and enjoy the views of the countryside. The swimming pool has a salted water filter system that avoids the use of chlorine. The location of the house, its efficient insulation, and the presence of ceiling fans in every bedroom ensure that the temperature at La Sorgente remains comfortable even during the hottest nights of the summer. A particular feature of this property is that two families or groups of adults can share it, while having private space and total independence from each other.

We had an awesome holiday! We flew in from South Africa and met up with family from the UK.
I brought my family (12 p) to stay in La Sorgente for a week to celebrate a special occasion. We also rented La Fiora (6 p) which is next door.
We have been quite fortunate with travels throughout the years and have grown accustomed to expect the very best. La Sorgente exceeded all our expectations.
We loved every aspect of the property. It is very beautiful indeed and has been renovated with an eye to authenticity but also towards what a modern traveler looks for. The setting is almost to good to be true. You will dine on the terrace while overlooking a beautiful valley and an immaculate garden (at least for Swedish standards). The pool is great. Extra plus for being salt water pool.
Villa Salogi was exteremly helpful and professional during the whole booking. Our contact, Simona, would answer phone-calls and e-mails promptly and always with great attitude. The house maid was fantastic. We had a recommended chef come in to cook for us, Morena, and she also did a great job.
Of all the properties I have seen in the neighbourhood this is by far the most beautiful. We have nothing but the very best to say.
This property is great for family, friends and kids. Loved it!!!
