'CASALE DELLE FARFALLE' is situeted in S. Andrea, a little very charming village in the top of a hill at 10 km from the walls of the ancient town of Lucca. It is called 'Il borgo delle camelie' because in every garden, villa or field there are some camelias. In March they are full of coloured flowers and so people celebrate this with a fair during four weekends. People can visit the most important villas and see some camelias aged also 200 years, tasting the first italian tea extracted from these local trees. Saint Andrea is famous for its olive oil and natural spring.
The country house made by stones, has been completely renovated in December 2011. In front of it there is a large fenced terrace with an attractive landscape of the hills around it.
