Overview

Soggiorno, originally a farmhouse and oil mill, has been beautifully and lovingly restored, with every modern comfort and convenience in mind.

Located just ten minutes from Lucca, in the pretty valley of Vorno, Soggiorno is near a small village (15-20 minute walk) and within easy reach of Pisa (20 min.), Florence (1.5 hrs), Siena (1.5 hrs) and the sea (35 min). An hour north along the coast is the Cinqueterre, known for its spectacular hiking and views. Visit the Carrara marble quarries, where Michelangelo got his pure white marble. Another half hour north are the famous towns of the Italian Riviera — Portofino, Santa Margherita and Rapallo. Facilities for golf (30 min), tennis (10 min) and horseback riding (10 min) are nearby.

Today the rooms of the old mill have become intimate and luxurious living rooms, full of warmth and welcome, with a fireplace, vaulted ceilings and traditional stonework. Furnishings have been carefully and patiently selected, with period furniture and splendid decorative objects.

Featured Amenities

Central air-conditioning (with individual controls in each bedroom). Guests are also welcomed with baskets of food.
