Set within the Tenuta di Tramonte estate, villa Trenta is available for weekly rentals. A fascinating and rare example of historical villa, with its centuries-old park, frescoed rooms and original furniture, the villa can accommodate up to 24 guests in 12 beautiful bedrooms for a truly unique holiday immersed in authentic charm.
Also set within the estate, villa Volpi is available for weekly rentals as well as shorter stay in a Bed & Breakfast formula during certain times of the year. Built in the mid-19th century at the top of a little hill, the villa boasts 360-degree views of the surrounding hills. It is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, offering its guests a taste of the delightful Tuscan countryside, a stone’s throw away from Lucca.
Built by the Trenta family, the villa’s origin date back to the 15th century, even though its current aspect is typical of the 16th century. The family was one of the most important in Lucca at the time, and the villa was at the center of a large agricultural estate that went from San Gemignano di Moriano all the way to Lucca.
An interesting fact is the role played by the villa in some historical events of the region. In 1554, it hosted Piero Strozzi and his army as he waited for reinforcements on his way to attempt retaking Florence from the Medici. In 1944, it briefly hosted the German command post on this section of the Gothic line.
From Lucca, follow the signs for “Abetone” until you reach the village of Ponte a Moriano (approx. 7km). Turn right on the village square a drive for 1km until the via di Tramonte.
The villa is located less than 1 km (10 minutes walk) from the train station in Ponte a Moriano.
The Pisa and Florence airports are both a 45 minutes’ drive from the estate and can also easily be reached with public transport.
