“Il Vecchio Frantoio”, a beautifully restored old olive mill. It is one of very few (if not the only one) frantoio (an Italian word for an olive mill) in such a good shape. The mill was build in around 1750 and was partially adapted to provide a cozy accommodation in the 80s of XX century. It is ideally situated: the world famous “Leaning Tower” of Pisa and the beautiful Tuscan city of Lucca are only a 30 minute drive away. The picturesque Tuscan beaches, Florence and other famous towns in Tuscany, like Volterra, San Gimignano or Montecatini Terme are within easy reach from “Il Vecchio Frantoio”.
