Events and Activities
For our guests, and for whoever may be interested, we organise cooking classes or didactic culinary activities like the olive harvest and visit to the oil mill, picking the spontaneous “greens” that will later be used to prepare typical dishes
We also organise didactic workshops on bread making and compost production for groups of students. Our agriturismo takes often part in art and cultural events organised by the Comune di Capannori, like Summer in Villa or the exhibition of Ancient Camellias of Lucca. Many are also the activities that you can do nearby. At the Compitese Cultural Centre (5 min walk from the agriturismo) you can play tennis and football, watch shows and concerts. Many excursions are possible, on foot or by mountain bike (renting them upon request), along paths or in the village, where you will see the ancient signal tower, S.Andrea church, ancient residences, mills, oil mills, and fountain with waters of the many properties. Most prestigious attraction of the area, the Camelietum Compitese, a botanical garden that preserves about one thousand varieties of camellias. A magical place, at the foothills of the mountain, along a stream, from which a didactic path starts to the discovery of the local fauna and flora.
