This property is situated in a private and beautiful position in the hills between Lucca and the coast. From the property, there are spectacular views over the countryside and the plains of Pisa and Lucca in the distance. The house has been furnished in a charming and comfortable country style. A wonderful feature is the wisteria covered pergola, which stretches along the front of the house, furnished with table and chairs, ideal for al fresco meals. Just in front of the pergola there is a special swimming pool with cascading water that has been installed in the most panoramic spot on the estate. Even though in a secluded position, Al Seminario is conveniently located just a 30 minute drive from the beaches, and 20 minutes from the nearest motorway exit (Massarosa), making it suited for trips to Lucca, Florence and other Tuscan towns. On request it is possible to arrange mountain biking excursions, hiking, horseback journeys and boating excursions in the Lucca Province. The one kilometre unsealed road is not suitable for very low sports cars.

Guest Reviews for Al Seminario
What a great place. We loved the house and the beautiful garden and pool. Francesco and Barbara were great. They helped wherever they could. They made our stay even more enjoyable.
Beautiful location and villa. Views amazing from outdoor areas and infinity pool particularly. Easy striking distance to Tuscan highlights
It was really amazing. The pictures are true. The pool is big and there is an amazing view all amenities to cook and relax in the garden next to the pool. I definitely would recommend this place for families or for people looking for a quite place but with many things to do around by car.
A very special, secluded, deliciously private nature reserve above the Italian countryside.
Alles im allem wunderschön, wenn auch der Preis nicht unbedingt ein Schnäppchen.. Der Weg zum Haus ist in der Tat nichts für Weicheier (sehr steinig, eng), was sich dann auftut, ist aber ein Paradies. Der Pool und Garten ist noch schöner als auf den Bildern, das Haus selbst ist sehr rustikal, romantisch und gross. Es ist alles da, was man braucht, der Putzservice ist angenehm, die Besitzer/Betreuer sehr herzlich! Danke! [English translation] All in all wonderful, though the price is not really a bargain ... The road to the house is not for wimps (very rocky, narrow), but what finally opens up, it is a paradise. The pool and the garden are even more beautiful than the pictures show, the house itself is very rustic, romantic and big. It's all there, what you need. The cleaning service is pleasant, the owners/caretakers are very friendly! Thank you!
We stayed one week at Al Seminario and loved it. The view is clearly one of the best you can imagine : almost 180° over lush rolling hills, the sea and the city of Viareggio in the distance (we could actually see planes landing at night), and even the city of Lucca in a corner. The swimming pool is amazing and the garden is full of surprises. Simona at Salogi was extremely helpful in handling the reservation process and the owner was very nice with us. the only downside is that the house lacks some modern facilities (the kitchen in particular is poorly equipped) and many doors leading outside are permanently locked. I read some reviews about the road leading to the house, but it is not that bad unless you want to drive a Ferrari (which you won't). The location is very secluded though, so you'll have to take the car everytime you need to go shopping. However Lucca is only 20 mn away, which is quite convenient.
Although the first time driving the road was a bit unnerving for those of us from the States, it was a normal mountain Italian road that was extremely fun to drive. The view from the Villa were breathtaking. We were happy with everything and although it is located in a very remote area, we were no more than a 15 minute drive from a lot of fun things to do.
Al Seminario was a perfect oasis for us. The villa itself is rusticilly beautiful and the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The pool and the view were breathtaking. The drive to the villa on the winding mountain roads isn't for the faint of heart and as other reviewers mentioned a sports car isn't the best choice for this trip. But we were provided with excellent directions. Overall we had an incredible stay at Al Seminario and it was hard to leave. A beautiful piece of paradise. We loved that the caretakers of the property left us fresh flowers on the table when we arrived.
We rented al Semenario to welcome our kids + families / friends from all over the world. We enjoyed our vacation very much. in respect of the access: don't come with a Porsche
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit in einem wunderschönen Haus. Liebevoll eingerichtet, und geschmackvoll. einfach schön hier zu sein. Sehr gepflegt, ansprechend, die Bilder waren nahezu neu. Idyllisch, ruhig und mit einer herrlichen fernsieht. Kein Nachbar kein Haus in direkter Nähe. Der Blick war grandios. Die Unterkunft war noch schöner und großartiger als die Beschreibung versprochen hat. Mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Ein herrlicher Infinity Pool, gepflegt, super Tolle Matratzen, schöne große geräumige Schlafzimmer mit einem dazugehörigen Bad. Neu, große und ansprechend. Ruhig, idyllisch, sehr gepflegt, total privat. Der Besitzer war sehr aufmerksam, sehr angenehm und nett. Er ist vor Ort, und jederzeit erreichbar wenn es irgendwelche Fragen bezüglich des Hauses gibt Wir haben schon in unserem Freundeskreis geschwärmt, auch wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen. (We had a wonderful time in a beautiful house. Lovingly furnished, and lovely equipped. simply nice to be here. Very well maintained, attractive. Idyllic, quiet. No neighbor, no house nearby.

The owner was very attentive, very pleasant and nice. He is on site, and at all times if there are any questions about the house We would recommend this property, we have already raved to our friends, and we will definitely come again.)
A beautiful, really tasteful property! We spent a magnificent stay, despite de access, a little difficult, but is what makes it really a unique place! We enjoyed most of all the views and the swimming pool!
