Villa Il Frantoio

Villa Il Frantoio
Tuscany, Lucca

At the foot of Mount Pisano, in the valley of Vorno, (6 km from Lucca) is situated this beautiful typical
Tuscan oil mill , immersed among olive groves. The property was first the private oil mill of the family
and then used by the famous architect Felice Matteucci who invented the first stroke engine
(prototype to the modern day motor car) in his workshop next to the Villa. Matteucci was the son to the
renowned minister of Justice of the Republic of Lucca and the noblewoman Angiola Tomei Albiani. Formerly a private olive press for a wealthy Italian family in the 16th century, this villa is full of historical allure and surrounded by terraced olive groves with stunning views of the valley below and Lucca’s medieval towers.
Fully restored yet retaining much of its historic allure, this villa is ideal for those seeking to enjoy a relaxed Tuscan break within easy reach of must-see cities including Lucca, Florence and Siena. The floodlit, spacious pool backs on to this striking red-earth coloured villa, bordered by sun loungers which mirror the avenue of trees behind them. From the pool (13x4m 1,8m depth), guests can enjoy fantastic views of the valley and Tuscan countryside. Fresh blooms and manicured lawns entice guests to spend many a day in this lovely garden.
