Tenuta al Poeta is one of the finest four bedroom air-conditioned luxury villas in Tuscany. Lovingly restored in 2014, this stunning, impeccably furnished villa was lovingly designed to maximize comfort and beauty.
Located just a few minutes south of the walled city of Lucca, and only a two-minute walk to the quaint town of Vorno, Tenuta al Poetica is a spectacular place for your next family holiday!
With views over Lucca and the gorgeous Vorno valley, Tenuta al Poeta features all the modern conveniences including Wifi Internet, air conditioning, a Turkish bath, a splendid coffee bar with espresso machine, motion detector lights illuminating the staircase, a large flatscreen satellite television as well as a beautiful swimming pool and an elevated Jacuzzi hot tub.
Tenuta al Poeta is an outstanding villa and there are so many things to experience near the villa that it’s hard to pack everything you will want to do into just one week’s stay! Besides private cooking lessons at your villa conducted by Valentino one of Tuscany’s top young chefs, we offer wine tasting both at the villa conducted by noted sommelier Larisa, or at the awesome Enoteca Vanni located on the Piaza san Salvatore in Lucca.
In addition to the treasure trove of art residing in Lucca’s 100 churches and splendid museums, there is the Puccini opera festival with an opera every evening. Although the operas rotate amongst five different locations, we particularly recommend experiencing the power of a performance at the San Giovanni Basilique, one of the most beautiful churches in all of the world. The Lucca Summer Festival features major performers; the Eagles, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Lenny Kravitz, and Robbie Williams have headlined the festival in recent years .
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.
There are a plethora of bike trails past historical sights and vineyards ranging from leisurely to challenging. 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 and Tuscandream can get you a private beachside cabana at a prime resort such as Twiga.
Several fabulous restaurants are within walking distance including the popular La Bimbotta a delightfully informal place to have a night of pizza and pasta. the magnificent 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 and our personal favourite “hole in the wall” pizza parlor “Ceylon Pizza” which is only three minutes from the villa. There are several supermarkets nearby – the best of which is Esselunga a short, five-minute drive from the villa.
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!
