A truly magical place. This 17th Century Tuscan estate, set amongst the hills and olive groves of Northern Tuscany.

It is very well situated, 10 Kilometers from the medieval city of Lucca, one hour from the international airport of Pisa and just

an hour from Florence. Also near to the many beaches on the Versiglia coast.


Ideal for large and small family gatherings, small weddings, various groups who want the peace and enjoyment of staying

in the country and yet being near to many interesting places. The living rooms are attractive, comfortable and great to relax

and spend precious time with friends and family. Also offering a great space to meet and study. It is already much used for cooking courses, Leadership and life skills, yoga and small weddings. Ideal for guided visits to the local gardens and Renaissance treasures of Tuscany.

Many families and groups have become great friends returning year after year.


Whether you want to take to a bicycle, visit the local wineries, enjoy a family reunion, here you can keep your children happy swimming,

eating pizza and safely playing in the gardens. If you just want to relax or meditate in the beautiful and peaceful setting of Boccella grounds, there will be a special place waiting for you. Maybe a chair under a pergola covered with roses or sweet smelling jasmine.


The other five properties on the estate offer top quality accommodation, three with private pools, all located in their own private grounds.

All share the same peaceful feeling.

Each property has been decorated carefully in the classic Tuscan style with the addition of very comfortable armchairs and sofas.

Plenty of outdoor seating, and tables to eat al fresco at each property. Fine landscaped gardens with rare specimens of trees and shrubs

are all around. Early May is the month to visit to see the wonderful rose display.


The estate’s olive grove produces its own fine quality cold pressed oil, seasonal fruit and vegetables, fresh eggs when the hens are laying.

The grounds and houses are managed and cared for by our English speaking Estate Manager, David, and his Italian wife, Silvia.

Together they enjoy ensuring our guests have the best Tuscan experience possible.


The estate is only 10 minutes by car to the beautiful city of Lucca or a little longer by bicycle along the river path.

In Lucca you can explore the winding streets full of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants.

One way to explore is hire a bicycle and cycle around the city on top of the ancient walls, drop down to the centre

for a glass of wine or cappuccino in one of the many delightful small bars and just enjoy the atmosphere.

From Lucca there is a very good train service which goes directly to Florence.

It is still possible in these stressful times to take a holiday and truly relax.

We hope if you find yourself staying on the Boccella estate you will enjoy
it as much as we do.
