Montecarlo Farmhouse

For those seeking to hold a relaxed, beautiful event surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, with accommodation for yourself and guests on site, look no further, Agriturismo Montecarlo fits the bill. The site has the much sought after combination of offering both a restaurant, as well as a B&B and panoramic saltwater pool on the premises. The restaurant can cater for up to 60 guests, while the B&B can accommodate up to 28 guests. A minimum three night's stay in the B&B is required in order to book the restaurant for the wedding day. Extra accommodation in local B&Bs and farmstays can be found within 2 km for those parties with more than 28 guests.

An additional attractive feature is the proximity of Agriturismo Montecarlo to it's neighbor, Villa Nicoletta, where civil ceremonies are held both outdoors and indoors, set against a breathtaking panoramic back drop of rolling hills and grape vines. Villa Nicoletta can be reached from Agriturismo Montecarlo on a gravel path that is about 500 meters long and adjoins the two properties.

Agriturismo Montecarlo is located off of Lucca's strada del vino (wine road) situated just 2 km outside the medieval town of Montecarlo, and only 9 km from the historic center of Lucca. Although weddings are an important part of Agriturismo Montecarlo's activities, at the heart of this establishment is a bustling winery producing fine Montecarlo reds served during the wedding service. The charming restaurant serving authentic local cuisine prides itself on always working with the fresh ingredients they find on the farm. All of the olive oil, honey and many of the herbs found in the dishes are grown right on the premises. The smell of the wood oven roasting succulent Tuscan meats greets you upon entrance to the light filled dinning room, lovingly restored with a rustic chic flair.

Fun cooking classes by local chef Serena and wine tastings directed by the friendly owner, Piero, can be arranged as a great ice breaker for guests arriving a few days before the wedding. A equestrian center, just below the farm, offers riding lessons and half day guided treks in the local country side that even beginners can participate in.

Agriturismo Montecarlo is above all, a family run farm and restaurant. This special sense of being part of the family permeates every aspect of the warm and friendly service and adds immeasurably to one's stay.
