The guest house La Limonaia is set on a larger property in the hills above Lucca on the small valley  of San Giusto di Compito, 7km from the old walled city. The house is located on a small estate of lawns and olive terraces alongside the owner's villa.

The guest house where originally during the winter were stored the lemon trees (that’s why the name Limonaia) has been finely restored with quality accommodation which make the place a romantic one with exceptional beauty. 

The house which is beside the owners house, accommodates 4-5 people with 3 bedrooms,  2 double bedrooms and one single room.

 We recommend that you inquire if you would like to book La Limonaia for 5 people, since the owner does prefer 4 people to have a more comfortable accommodation.
