The Bagni di Lucca / Guzzano-Pieve di Controne area
Whether you’re after adventure or seeking a serene sojourn, you’ll find something to suit you here. The beautiful countryside offers you every opportunity to sit under a tree and read a book, and equally to walk through the forest in search of cool air. Bagni Di Lucca presents a welcoming starting point to your Tuscan exploration, and the larger neighbouring towns offer an exciting chance to study the impressive architecture and lively culture of the region. There are a range of outdoor sports and activities to take part in nearby, such as horse riding, canoeing and skiing.
Guzzano (our hamlet) is a tiny little village perched on a hill around Bagni di Lucca. At the beginning of the XX century a lot of its inhabitants sought their fortune abroad. Most of their grandchildren still live outside Italy but come back here for holidays once in a while. Some English tourists bought a house in our village, following up a long tradition which dates back to the XIX century, when English poets or artists like the Brownings were literally enraptured with our surroundings.
Closest family run grocery store is at 2 km from us. They sell fresh bread and delicious "schiacciata" (flat bread) every day. Chez our neighbor farmers you can purchase eggs and seasonal vegetables (such as tomatoes, salad...).
Bagni di Lucca (at 5 km from our village), is a nice tourist resort, where you will find general stores, shops and sport centers (public swimming pool, tennis courts, chemist, supermarkets, etc.) and a beautiful spa, beloved destination of artists like Byron, Shelley, Puccini, Metternich and Radestsky. Traces of this glorious past are to be found in its monuments: the English Church, the Catene bridge, the Spa, the villas, the Casino (the first gambling house to be opened in Europe and nowadays a wonderful location for wedding receptions). The town provides some very good restaurants, where you can taste our traditional cuisine.
