The Tuscany region

The surrounding area is perfect if you are a keen walker or mountain biker. You can enjoy bird watching, fishing, painting and photography, as well as skiing and snowboarding. We are the first village above the town, walking down will take around 30-40 minutes and you can always hop on the local bus to return to the village.

Bagni Di Lucca

The property is located in a mountainous region of Tuscany. During the high season, the village has parking restrictions. Parking is in a secure area some 50 meters from the house and should not pose any issues. The owners live below the rental space and will be on call should you need any assistance.

Bagni di Lucca has a number of super restaurants, serving hearty Tuscan fare. You can also enjoy a post supper flutter at the recently re-opened casino.

You'll find a public swimming pool, tennis courts and thermal baths, along with banks; supermarkets and on Wednesday and Saturday mornings there is a traditional Tuscan market

Thank you very much for your lovely review – what a super way to end our first season renting our holiday home. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa. The September weather played its part – Tuscany can be such a great place to visit after the heat of August has subsided. Thanks again for your kind comments and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Take care Steve & Denise.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are pleased you had such a wonderful time here at the The Contented Tuscan. Thanks too for your comments on the décor of our home.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Bagni di Lucca in the very near future Steve & Denise.

Wow – what a great review – thank you very much.
Fantastic sums up how we felt too about having you as our first guests.
We were a little nervous but really could not have asked for lovelier guests. Thanks too for your super feedback and taking the time to suggest supplying a Tuscan supper. We incorporated your idea into our offering, now all our future guests can have a pre-prepared Tuscan supper waiting for them when they return from a days sightseeing.
You having a good experience matters to us and we are pleased that our holiday home helped deliver you a super holiday in Tuscany.
We hope to see you again Steve & Denise.
