This lovely property is located in the hills between Lucca and the Versilian coast, with the possibility of reaching the major Tuscan cities of art for day trips. The present owners restored Bottino, a property under the supervision of the Italian Historic Buildings Administration, which is made up of a farmhouse and a barn. The restoration resulted in a very attractive country-style property, composed of two buildings, where two groups or families may enjoy a stay together while maintaining their independence, as each house offers its own kitchen, a cosy sitting-room and every bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. Also all beds can be prepared either as double or as twin beds (please warn in advance of your request). The lovely terraced garden, surrounded by an olive grove, offers guests several places to sit outside and is nicely furnished for outdoor meals. The pool was designed to blend perfectly with the Tuscan countryside, and has been placed just outside the barn, with lovely views of the surrounding hills. Close to both the Apennines and the Apuan Alps, this setting is also excellent for hikers and people who like to walk. Cooking lessons are available upon request.


Cleaning service is included 9 hours.

Guest Reviews for Bottino

Barbra P. (Uitdam, The Netherlands)

Thank you again for staying in your wonderful home. We enjoyed the pool. The garden, the pool table, jeu de boules yard, etc..
Julian was a bit afraid of snakes after your story :) But he was happy with you TV channels so he could watch soccer and Formula 1.

Thank you for your hospitality and of course for the nice gift from Kenya.
They are great for eating a salad. See you n the future.

Darren K. (Montreal, Canada)

Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us. The houses are so comfortable and well equipped.
The views are amazing, the space is peaceful, the garden is beautiful, the pool is idyllic and our week was incredible. We had a very special week – 3 families together (one big extended family).
Sincere thanks for the care and attention to detail and love that you have put into the property in order to make it such a gem!

Perry C. (Melrose, Usa)

We are absolutely in love with you villa and Italy. This was our first vacation with both our families and we enjoyed every minute of it. The natural beauty here is stunning.
We will be back… all 10 of us!

Jerry T. (Fairfax, Usa)

Staying at Bottino has been a wonderful treat for our family and friends. Plenty of room for all eight of us, and beautifully appointed!
Thank you too for providing us with a book/folder with the history of your lovely property. Our History buffs really enjoyed that!
We grazed our way through all of your ripe cherry trees!
We highly recommend the Tuscan cooking class, which was a great fun.
We also spent many lazy hours lounging by the poolside and playing Bocce – we are now ready for a professional Bocce Team.
Thank you!

Guy S. (Los Angeles, Usa)

Villa Bottino far superseded our expectations. The warm and wonderful hosts provided a clean and charming world that we were able to roam free in. The attention to detail was phenomenal. The property had just the right balance of rustic mixed with all the practical amenities that we needed for our vacation. I cannot thank the neighbors enough for spoiling us with the exceptional dinners comprising of pizzas, pastas and tiramisu, etc. We all agreed that the pizza was the BEST we have ever tasted. We would absolutely come and stay here again.

S B. (Usa)

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful villa. We celebrated a 60th, 30th and a 59th Birthday! We will never forget this beautiful experience, and the time in our life we spent here. We had wine from every region + eat in the most humble and Grand restaurants.

A K. (Uk)

We spent a wonderful week here with our family. The villa is absolutely stunning. Conveniently located so as to feel complete privacy but also close to wonderful towns to explore. We also enjoyed going to the beach for the day. Our last evening was spent admiring the view and playing bowles.

O F. (Uk)

Bottino is a lovely house and very usable. The views are truly sensational. The gardens and grounds are extensive and the house spacious and very liveable. Everything works. We loved it Salogi are a fine company and very helpful indeed.

B L. (Usa)

Bottino is a little slice of paradise. We have just spent a wonderful week here with our family and are sad to leave such an idyllic place. The house has been so beautifully renovated and the gardens are so lush and full of nature. I loved listening to the brids and gazing at the sunning view from our pool! All of the surrounding areas are so rich with history and culture. We enjoyed visiting Lucca, Pisa and Forte dei Marmi. Next time we will stay 2 weeks!

S M. (Usa)

Thank you for a wonderful week, with a wedding on top of it all! Our friends couldn't have wished for a better place to start their new life as a married couple!

J S. (Usa)

John and I wanted to thank you again for sharing your beautiful villa with us. We enjoyed our time at Bottino and hated to leave. You were so helpful and kind helping us get familiar with all the surroundings. Bottino is a true gem and so are you. We enjoyed all the meals Lina prepared for us. She and her husband are also special people – so kind

K K. (Australia)

Outstanding property in a wonderful location. Our host, Jiulano, was so friendly and passionate about the renovations of these heritage buildings.

F W. (Usa)

The Villa at Bottino was excellent, even better than what we expected from the photographs. The facilities were first class including the pool. The host was most warm and welcoming and very helpful. The support provided during the stay in terms of Villa cleaning was very good. The location close to Lucca and within 90 min of Florence was very good and the surrounding countryside was beautiful. Favorite activity: The beauty of the villa and location
