We are proud to present an opportunity to escape to an undiscovered paradise, situated north of Lucca, in the dramatically beautiful region of Tuscany.

It is located in a spectacular position with breathtaking 360° views over romantic hillside villages, lush wooded countryside to mountains beyond. These luxurious properties with private heated pools are set in four acres of ecologically managed Italianate gardens comprising terraces, formal areas and woodland walks.
A tranquil and idyllic retreat which basks under the Tuscan sun, Colletto is perfect for those with discerning tastes.
