Facilities and services off the Estate

A shopping mall with an Esselunga supermarket, a bank, a dry cleaner, a coffee bar and several other shops is located 3 km from the farm and is open weekdays from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. (Closed all day Sunday & Monday morning).

There are at least 5 restaurants within 5 km of the estate whose cuisine we can recommend to you
ranging from the simple but savory dishes prepared at “Il Vecchio Pazzo” to the refined 1-star Michelin cuisine of the elegant “Ristorante Butterfly”.
If you would like to have lunch or dinner in Lucca (the town is only a 15-minute drive from Colle Verde), we strongly recommend “La Buca di S.Antonio” and “L’Antica Locanda dell’Angelo”: both restaurants have been in operation since the Middle Age and serve delicious interpretations of traditional Tuscan cuisine.

If you are a lover of classical music then you probably know that Lucca is the birthplace of the renowned composers Giacomo Puccini and Luigi Boccherini. We can provide you with the complete schedule of performances at the Teatro del Giglio as well as information about concerts produced throughout the year in the historic villas in and around Lucca. In addition, a Jazz & Pop Festival that takes place every summer presents outdoor concerts in several of Lucca’s lovely piazzas.
