This place was a little hard to find, although we should have relied on the Google Maps earlier and not tried to figure it out ourselves. It is about 15min from the main, walled city of Lucca. It is a converted monastery in an idyllic setting in the Tuscan hills, surrounded by olive groves, winding roads and hilltop chapels. It has a beautiful pool overlooking it all, with comfortable lounge chairs. Be advised that if you want to use a towel, you are not allowed to use the ones from your room, and they charge you 5E to use the "blue" pool towels. The breakfast, which was part of the package, was delicious and included fresh croissants and pastries, meats and cheeses, boiled eggs, cereal, dried fruit or fruit in syrup, yogurt and made-to-order drinks from the espresso bar. The restaurant on-site is quite good. It has a good selection of wine. The appetizers and desserts we tried were fantastic, and for the main, I highly recommend the Florentine steak. It was amazing. My only regret is that we didn't spend more time just hanging out at the property. We spent a lot of time exploring other areas including the nearby town of Lucca, and the Cinque Terre fishing villages (about 1-1.5hr away)
