Our beautiful stay is set primarily in a historic villa estate located just north of Lucca. The fashion for country villas as a place to relax and recharge was started in the 14th century. The Villa Bocca Estate is a perfect example of a country retreat for the nobility and was built in 1729. It is set in a huge private country estate of vineyards and olive groves, which still produce wine and olive oil today. The Villa Bocca Estate is exceptionally spacious and provides a stunning setting.


Amy highly encourages all retreat participants to consider a Trip Insurance plan to protect their investment when they decide to book.
