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.

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.
