About the property

Courtyard farmhouse Corte Brincolo, Via Tofori, Lucca. All the charms of the Tuscany ideally located for day trips to Lucca, Florence, Pisa et

This is a new listing both for me and for Corte Brincolo where friends and strangers have happily been holidaying for years. Located on a wine and extra virgin olive oil producing estate, my property has a 360 degree view on the surrounding countryside, close to the village of Camigliano and Tofori.

The Corte is composed of five independent apartments each with their own kitchen and dining area, a common indoor dining and sitting space, barbecue, outside dining facilities and a private beautiful swimming pool. Each of the seven bedrooms has its own ensuite bathroom.

Much of my childhood was spent just two hundred metres up the road from Corte Brincolo, at Villa Maionchi where generations of my family have lived and produced wine and olive oil. The Greedy Italians Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo have filmed here a few times just to give you a taste of our outside dining experience!

Parking is available. Wi-fi connection available throughout. Fans in each bedroom

About Elisa Palagi Maionchi

This is a new listing both for me and for the five guest apartments at Corte Brincolo where friends and strangers alike have been holidaying for many years now. Much of my childhood was spent just two hundred metres up the road from Corte Brincolo at the Fattoria Villa Maionchi where generations of my family have lived and worked producing wine and olive oil.

Why Elisa Palagi Maionchi chose Capannori

Corte Brincolo has been in my family for generations....

What makes this farmhouse unique

The finest of Tuscan food, wine, flora and fauna....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Corte Brincolo is a magical place..located in the wonderful Tuscan hills about 20 minutes from the medieval walled town of Lucca. I have spent many wonderful times here over the years with family and friends. My sister actually got married in the Fattoria Villa Maionchi just up the road, which is stunning. The apartments are very comfortable and there is a relaxed, friendly atmosphere around the pool area. Lots of activities close by and great for children. You couldn't but love the place which is why we all keep going back every opportunity we get!...........Karen McHugh, Bruxelles

A Corte Brincolo Elisa ti accompagna sapientemente nella vera collina lucchese, dove l'armonia della natura, dei fiori, delle erbe officinali, è ancora intatta. Insomma, arte, natura, armonia ed accoglienza sapiente sono garantite a Corte Brincolo, per chi desidera verità e bellezza.....Alessandro Tozzi, Roma

I cannot recommend highly enough Corte Brincolo, the wider surroundings and the hospitality I have enjoyed there repeatedly for more than ten years now. The considerable charms of the place cannot but win you over and lure you back for further visits.....ci vediamo elisa.......richard callanan, dublin

Corte Brincolo is a place where you will feel home in minutes, and not only because of the wonderfull surroundings and the beauty of the hills of Lucca but also for the athmosphere created by the old and charming property. Elisa is very careful and helpful with her guests, she is also a very good cook and I have personally tasted several times fantastic food prepared with herbs and olive oil produced (as the very good wines) within the property. You will fall in love with Corte Brincolo.....Lelio Orsini, Milano
