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
