What makes it special

18th Century Farmhouse Nestled in Tuscan Olive Groves

Nestled in the western hills of the lush olive groves of Lucca, near the welcoming village of San Macaria in Monte, is a landmarked 18th century farmhouse with a distinguished provenance.

Both the charming villa and the surrounding 11 hectares of prime agricultural land belonged to the larger estate once owned by Cardinal Buonvisi and subsequently to the renowned aristocratic Manzi family.

Today, Podere Moretti is a historical treasure comprising a country cottage with a large living room that retains the original fireplace, three lovely bedrooms, two bathrooms and a 130 square foot covered terrace perfect for relaxed outdoor dining.

In addition, there are laundry, storage areas and a stone grotto used as a wine cellar.

In the meandering garden is a 130 square foot shed with an ancient fountainhead as well as a large wood burning fireplace ideal for making bread and pizza.

An idyllic spot with commanding views of Lucca, Pisa and Livorno, this farm and the adjacent properties produce some of the finest extra virgin olive oil in Tuscany and the local government protects the local flora and fauna and exclude hunting on these fertile grounds. The property is easily accessible and offers a large parking area.

With permits, another 600 cubic feet can be added to the existing structure and a home of immeasurable value can be created.
