This charming converted monastery nestles in the hillside hamlet of San Pietro a Marcigliano, not far north of the city of Lucca. In the centuries it has become the main building of the estate surrounded by many ancient buildings as barns and houses for the workers. The setting is incomparable and the views are wonderful. This is a hidden part of Tuscany, timeless, unchanging and away from the tourist track. The Monastery was built about 1550 and has been owned by our family since 1792. It has been converted to a family home while retaining the vital architectural integrity of the original buildings. Around the monastery is the property where olive trees and wine yards are the main cultures. We produce olive oil and an excellent wine; the old cave is just on the ground floor of the main building. The countryside offers many opportunities of discovering very nice places with little medieval churches or old farmhouses. Behind the buildings are woods with many opportunities for walks or mountain biking.

Better than the pictures
It often happens that you find puin arrival that the agriturismo is not like the pictures on the website. Also here, but in this case reality beats the web. Spacious and beautifully decorated rooms. Large kitchen and another plus: a balcony overlooking the valley. Gorgious in the evening when the street lights appear. Don't expect overluxurious steamshowers or golden doorknobs, yet the house has all you need incl. a pool and bbq place. Daniella is very kind and willing to help with every request. Something to improve? Well, we didn't discover one yet so will have to come back.
A recommander pour le calme et la beauté du paysage.
Proche des villes à visiter (maximum 1h30) de sienne, des cinq terres, de Florence,
Thank you so much Mr Mayer, it has been a pleasure to have you as guests, we really hope to see you again.
Nicola, Daniela and all The Monastery staff.
