Pieve di Compito is one of several sought-after villages within 20 minutes of Lucca.... tucked into a bowl-shaped valley, surrounded by olive trees and pine-covered hills, 'Il Rifugio' is a recently restored 18th Century villa, which was once part of a monastery building. The monks catered to pilgrims traveling to Rome, welcoming them with a bite of food and a rest...a 'refuge' for weary travelers...Now you too can relax and regenerate at 'Il Rifugio'....a 3-suite B&B, elegantly appointed, surrounded with extensive flower and veggie gardens.
All 3 Suites have a private bath and sitting area, Satellite TV and Wi-Fi, air conditioning, and are furnished for relaxation and comfort. Italian and Asian antiques give the rooms a classic feel.
