La locanda (english version)
Four friends, with a passion for challenges, have revived an old B&B, the “Locanda il Fornello”, at the foot of the Montecarlo Hills (LU). The farmers’toils have covered this gentle and fertile land with vines and olive trees.
The B&B is situated in a strategic location, close to the famous cities of Lucca, Pisa, Pistoia and Florence. It is only a few miles away from the sea. The motorway allows our guests to easily reach those destinations, as well as the largest part of Tuscany.
The house was originally built for farmers. Its style is simple and traditional, dating mostly from the 50s. Surrounded by vineyards, the house faces the southwest. The original rustic style of those who tilled the land has been deliberately preserved.
The Locanda offers 6 bedrooms which maintain the original style of the house along with a homely and hospitable atmosphere. On the numerous fine days, breakfast is served in the garden, an invitation to start the day in harmony with the surrounding nature.
Available to our guests is a lovely swimming pool, set in a private area amid vineyards and olive trees. Next to the B&B, a winery offers the opportunity to taste local products, including the wine and oil produced by the farm on which the B&B is set. You will have the opportunity to enjoy a drink and perhaps buy some of our products.
On the premises, “Il Fornello”, the typical tavern, is also part of the property. It is managed by the excellent Chef Gabriele, who cooks traditional Tuscan dishes, reinterpreted for the most discerning palates.
