During the week there’ll be time to visit the exquisite walled gem of Lucca with its towering walls, elegant piazzas and magnificence cathedral. This excellent walking holiday combines fantastic food, wonderful accommodation and excellent day walks to show you the very best of Italy’s Wild Tuscany. A holiday highlight is our traditional accommodation nestled in the heart of the Tuscan hills. This organic farm is a little piece of Italian heaven with over 100 olive trees plus colourful orchards of apple, apricot, pear and quince. Lying abandoned for over 30 years, the farm has been lovingly restored by your hosts and is now brimming with colour.
The surrounding meadows and gardens are home to ducks, hens, goats, sheep and cats, plus fireflies, squirrels, deer and badgers. Hidden in the garden is a refreshing pool cleaned with a unique salt water system. Each relaxing bedroom room is decorated in calming Tuscan colours whilst living rooms have chestnut beams, terracotta tiles, board games, books and an honesty bar for a drink in the evening. Each delicious dinner includes fresh ingredients from the farm gardens and is very much a social affair. Picnic lunches are taken along the trail and are made up of tasty treats.
