“Set amid the rolling countryside surrounding Lucca, Tenuta San Pietro is a lovingly restored 16th century farmhouse turned luxury hotel. The eight bedrooms and two suites effortlessly combine original features (think wooden floors, exposed beams and exposed stone walls) with contemporary touches including modern art on the walls and the usual mod cons. The restaurant is another big draw; chef Guido delivers fabulous regional and Mediterranean cuisine (accompanied by the property's very own extra virgin olive oil). They also run cookery courses and holidays, for those looking to improve their skills. The Tenuta also boasts a glorious outdoor pool with a view, and massages (using olive oil and chocolate!) are available on request. It is the perfect spot for a romantic, culinary break amid beautiful Tuscan countryside.”
