Welcome to the fattoria di Fubbiano
Surrounded by 45 hectares of estate, among vineyards, olive groves and woods, the Fattoria di Fubbiano extends between the towns of Tofori and San Gennaro, on the south-facing slope of the Lucca hills. Here the winter is mild and an infinity of spontaneous flowers begin to bloom as early as January. In Fubbiano, our commitment was twofold: on the one hand the integration of pre-existing crops, diversifying the products and promoting their typicality, on the other hand the recovery of the traditional rural lifestyle by faithfully restoring the original buildings so that they preserved their singular architectural character. We firmly believe in maintaining that delicate balance that is the biological ecosystem and in using only traditional natural products to protect the vines from disease. The main products of the farm are our extra virgin olive oil and our Colline Lucchesi DOC wines.
Built around the seventeenth century villa, the ancient court houses typical of the Lucca countryside, once home to the farm workers and peasants, have been faithfully restored, keeping their original architectural character to offer hospitality to all those who wish to experience the experience of a farm holiday in Tuscany.
Apartments also available for one night only.
Villa Teto, located in the western part of the estate, since April 2011 has returned after many years to be part of the Fattoria di Fubbiano. Set in a magnificent panoramic position overlooking the plain of Lucca and the Pisan Mountains, Villa Teto is surrounded by the farm’s vineyards and olive groves and has its own private garden and large swimming pool.
Villa at Magrini
At the eastern end of the farm, near the stream that marks the boundary of the property, stands “Al Magrini”, a cottage surrounded by vines and olive trees. In this quiet valley, guests have access to a private garden facing south-east, where they can dine outdoors among the rose bushes and a swimming pool.
The Villa, located between olive groves and vineyards, is the heart of the farm. Built towards the end of the seventeenth century, it is an example of typically Lucca architecture: square plan, four-pitched roof, private chapel, central staircase and cornices in pietra serena. It has been restored maintaining its original appearance and, however, providing it with modern comforts.

Wine and Olive Oil
Lucca is known for its countless churches, its medieval buildings, the characteristic Piazza Anfiteatro and above all for the atmosphere that you breathe walking along the narrow alleys of the historic center. But not everyone knows that Lucca is surrounded by a wonderful natural landscape made up of gentle hills, ancient stately villas, centuries-old olive groves, vineyards and small country churches with their graceful bell towers. Rich in minerals, the hills surrounding the city of Lucca form a natural amphitheater that protects from the northern winds and guarantees a mild climate all year round, helping to create a wine with a strong personality, with a high content of sugars and intense bouquets and an excellent extra virgin olive oil. This is the land where Colline Lucchesi DOC wines and Extra Virgin Olive Oil are produced.
Therefore, the Lucca countryside is an ideal place to explore, among ancient historic villas, delightful Romanesque churches, such as that of San Gennaro, farms, oil mills and wineries.
Wine and olive oil tastings
In Fubbiano we are happy to open our cellar to visits and tastings of our wines and our extra virgin olive oil.
The tour starts from the oldest part of the farm, the 17th century villa, a typical example of a Lucca villa-farm, framed by the stone houses once inhabited by the peasants who worked here. We then move to the new cellar, finished building at the end of 2009, which illustrates the winemaking process, from receiving the grapes to refining the wines in the barrel cellar. If the weather conditions allow it, a visit to one of our vineyards allows you to immerse yourself even more in the wonderful world of enology, closely observing the strength and vigor of the vine.
The visits always end with a guided tasting of our products: from extra virgin olive oil to our wines, accompanied by tastings of cheeses and cured meats.
Weddings and events
A typical example of a Lucca villa-farm, the Fattoria di Fubbiano, with the seventeenth-century villa, the stone buildings of the ancient rural village, the panoramic terrace of the new wine cellar, is an ideal setting for events, meetings and ceremonies in general.
The spaces made available are many, all combinable with each other.
