Accommodation in Tuscany

The Old Olive Press, Il Vecchio Frantoio in Italian, is a collection of old agricultural buildings lovingly renovated to provide comfortable and stylish accommodation for up to eight guests. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and consists of four double bedrooms with en suite shower rooms, living room and modern kitchen. Two of the bedrooms can be made up into twin bedded rooms if required. Wifi is available throughout the entire building including bedrooms.

The sunny stone courtyard is central to the building and is a beautiful place to paint, read a book, eat & drink or just relax. There is a large wooden table for al fresco dining and a bbq for those warm summer evenings. We have a plunge pool located on the lower terrace, with comfortable seating and sun loungers. The views across the valley are amazing, and you really get a sense of solitude. Beyond the pool terrace is a track that leads down into the olive groves, which are delightful to explore.

Terenzano is surrounded by two environmentally protected parks; National Park of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and the Regional Park of the Apuan Alps. The local walks are beautiful and abundant with flora and fauna and the views are breathtaking. Infact we have named our bedrooms after some of the animals you may come across whilst out exploring; cinghiale (wild boar), volpe (fox), aquila (eagle) and porcospino (porcupine).
