Agriturismo

The premises of the present Agriturismo was a halt place for the pilgrims travelling from France to Rome along Via Francigena.

Azienda Agricola Biologica Nico lying on the green slopes of the hills very close to Lucca plain, the sea of Versilia and the Apuan Alps was started from the need of reawaking of an abandoned farm and a deep love for nature and the farming tradition. The house is completely surrounded by woods, cultivated fields, meadows and olive groves. The daily life in a peaceful atmosphere makes you feel as you lived in ages gone by.

We preserve the precious winter rains to wet the vegetables gardens in summer, we use the sun and wood power to heat the water and our flats, we clean our sewer using willows, bulrush, iris and reeds. Our organic farm would be an experience to promote environment protection.

Around the house there are trekking routes to visit small old towns and Romanesque churches in the adjacent hills and ancient mule-tracks. We have a couple of horses, a couple of donkeys and other domestic animals. Our house is furnished with a wood oven, hammocks, a wide terrace where you can enjoy typical products or appreciate reading at your leisure.

during the summer is a swimming pool for children to play

For your stay at Nico you can choose between 2 rooms and one apartment.

    Thank you Federico and Elena, we had a very nice stay.
    We loved the beauty of the house and garden, all the details full of grace and poetry, your warmth and thoughtfulness, and the pizza party, which won our hearts: the pizzas were excellent, and the atmosphere was joyful and relaxed.
    Ciao,
    Grazie mille!

    We just want to thank you for an incredible weekend at Azienda Agricola Biologica Nico! We appreciated how quickly you were able to accommodate us as we were such a last minute booking and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. The property was so tranquil and a perfect destination to relax. We loved getting you know you both as well as your wonderful adorable children. The accommodations were perfect..clean and spotless. And the food! We loved learning how to make pasta with you Elena and then enjoying it over dinner Saturday night. The meals were a highlight of our trip, chock full of delicious vegetables and local, organic ingredients and made with love. It really was a perfect weekend getaway for us and we hope we can return one day soon. Thank you again for everything!!

    Non posso che confermare tutti i commenti positivi che mi avevano colpito e convinto nella scelta di trascorrere proprio in questo posto, con la mia famiglia i bimbi e i miei amici, gli ultimi giorni dell’anno e il capodanno.
    Elena e Federico persone semplici, disponibili che danno valore aggiunto alla bellezza e la tranquillità del loro agriturismo, si percepisce da subito che amano il loro lavoro e ti fanno sentire “di casa”.
    Abbiamo visitato anche Lucca che si trova a pochissimi km dall’agriturismo, speriamo di poterci tornare presto!
    Un caro saluto anche a Tobia, tanto apprezzato dal mio bambino :)

    Un luogo meraviglioso per il quale si potrebbero scrivere e dire mille cose tutte bellissime. Qui voglio sottolineare quella che può sembrare più banale: l’accoglienza e l’umanità. Siamo inondati da messaggi pubblicitari degli agriturismi sulla genuinità, la cordialità, i prodotti locali… ormai ne siamo abituati, qui, all’Azienda da Nico, ho avuto l’impressione che tutte queste espressioni spesso fumose acquistano senso e significato. Vera cordialità, vera genuinità.
