Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: Scottish owners living in Edinburgh who travel regularly to sample the simple relaxation, food and great wine in Italy. We particularly enjoy the Lucca Summer Music Festival. The estate is managed by live on residents George and Linda who live in a separate area of the estate but are on hand to help you understand all that is on offer locally.

Why Buti:
The location gives you a chance to recharge your batteries with beautiful sunrises and sunsets, positioned on the side of a Tuscan hill with views looking down on the valley below. Recently renovated to a high standard - with terracotta floors and air conditioning throughout. Beautiful new pool, children's pool and waterfall surrounded by relaxation area with ten sun loungers, barbecue area and landscaped garden. The pool area is serviced by its own dedicated traditional Tuscan kitchen, which is in addition to the main 'teaching' kitchen and dining area. Beautiful olive groves and maturing vineyard compliment the pool and dining areas offering plenty opportunity for relaxed strolling or shelter within the estate. Perfectly situated for exploring Tuscany, the local restaurants are good value and you can mix with the locals.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Easy access to Pisa airport, ideal base to go to Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Chianti, Volterra, Siena, Tuscan Coast or the Cinque Terre. On relaxing days you can enjoy the peace and quiet by the pool or walk in the hills and eat great local food. The estate produces its own olive oil and vegetables for use by the guest in cooking, and the new vineyard is taking shape.
