Villa Cenami attained its current look during the 18th century, when the Cittadella Family enlarged the modest country house, originally built in 1100 and used as a hostel for pilgrims during travels to and from the Roman capital. The charming adjoining Romanic Chapel originates in the 12th century and represents an important aspect of the Villa’s history, which once served as a monastery. The estate was eventually inherited by the Cenami family during the 19th century and has been groomed into a large agricultural estate with an extensive olive grove where excellent olive oil is produced.
While today the Villa serves as a private residence, it also provides charming holiday accommodations, offering visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy the charm and character of the beautiful countryside which surrounds Lucca.
