A beautifully converted 1 bed barn set within a wine and olive estate

Part of our exclusive 'Handpicked' collection, Il Monticello is a beautiful wine and olive producing farm estate. Accommodation consists of 3 character apartments within the beautifully restored farmhouse and a detached converted barn. Set on a splendid hillside location with great views it’s the perfect location for a wonderful Tuscan holiday.

Daria is set within a very charming former barn, close to the farmhouse. Pleasantly furnished in a rustic Tuscan style with terracotta floors and beamed ceilings throughout, it has been perfectly restored and has a very unique layout. The accommodation is set over three floors with entrance from one of the two large terraces into the dining room/kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped, with a fridge/freezer, four-ring hob and electric oven, dishwasher, American coffee maker and electric kettle. Next to the kitchen there is a TV room with satellite TV and a double sofa bed.

From the TV room stairs lead up to the first floor into a spacious sitting room with expansive windows on three sides, offering stunning views down to the valley. There is a comfortable double sofa bed and several easy chairs in this room, but be aware that due to the large windows the room cannot be completely darkened.

From here, it’s up another flight of stairs to the third level with its pretty double bedroom and modern bathroom. The bathroom features a bath with shower over, basin, bidet and WC.

In the garden there is a lovely swimming pool shared between guests to the estate (13m x 7m, depth 1.10-1.40m) and a small play area for young children. There are two barbecue areas near the farmhouse as well as four gazebos in the olive groves, just perfect for relaxing in the shade.

The estate is situated less than one mile from the small village of Segromigno in Piano where you will find a supermarket, bank, bar, restaurant and a number of small shops. You are well placed to visit all the major sights of central Tuscany with Lucca, Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena, the Garfagnana mountains and the coast of Viareggio and Lido di Camaiore all within easy travelling distance for days out. In Lucca there is an abundance of churches and famous villas to explore and families with children will enjoy the famous Pinocchio Park at Collodi just 6 miles away.

The welcoming owners offer all guests free wine tasting on the estate and traditional Tuscan dinners and cooking lessons can be arranged on request.
