Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The villa is just 2 minutes away from the clear rushing mountain waters of the river Lima and surrounded by forested mountain slopes with good views from every room. Located in the valley means that access is relatively easy compared to staying in some mountain villages.
The fully self contained 1st floor apartment with its own stone entrance stairway and large balcony is very light and spacious.
With its range of bedroom styles, it offers comfort and flexibility to both small and larger groups, so no need to book a 1 bedroom property that sleeps 4/5 people.
All rooms have traditional tiled floors,high ceilings,and window shutters.
Outside on the terraced woodland garden there is plenty of space to relax or enjoy "al fresco" dining. There is on site parking for at least 2 cars.
The local area is relatively unspoilt and it is possible to enjoy local events, festas, sagras etc away from the crowds and expense of the large cities. Alternatively, with very good road and rail links the historic cities of Tuscany, many places of interest and the Mediterranean coast are within easy reach.

The sloping terraced grounds, sheltered by a mix of established trees,include an area for "al fresco" dining while just 200 metres away is the riverside where you can picnic, fish or even take a dip. Locally there is a bar pizzeria, grocers store and probably one of the best restaurants in Tuscany, the Buca di Baldabo (see Trip Advisor reviews).
The village of Giardinetto is 10km north of the historic, pretty thermal spa town of Bagni di Lucca. We are located in the Appenine mountains with peaks reaching over 1500 metres and very close to the Garfagnana region both excellent Alpine Club walking areas.
For guests staying 7 nights or more there is a "welcome pack" in the form of a complimentary antipasto meal (cold meats/cheese/tomatoes etc), fresh fruit with wine and soft drinks all ready for your arrival.
These are a few comments made previously by our guests at Villetta Lima.
'Your location is beautiful and ideal for touring the area - we have gone from walking in the mountain snow to walking on the beach'
'Had a fantastic time - lovely location, lovely villa.'
'We have been thoroughly impressed with your villa and its beautiful location'
'How lucky were we when we came across Villetta Lima ......
This property was absolutely lovely. It was clean and beautiful and in a stunning setting in the mountains.
I would have no hesitation at all in recommending this for a superb holiday.
The Tuscany region
Tuscany has everything in style. Famous cities such as Florence,Siena , PIsa with culture,history and art in abundance. Famous artists and inventors such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo to famous composers like Puccini (with outdoor live opera in the summer).
The city of Lucca is known as "the jewel" in the Tuscan crown with its 3 kms + of ancient walls to cycle or walk around and its traffic restricted cobbled streets, historic buildings, shopping and nightlife. Dont miss the Lucca Summerfest in July with top artists playing live in the city, and the Festival of Comics and Games in the Autumn.
There is a very good range of free to use guides ,maps, leaflets available in the apartment.
Bagni di Lucca
The Val di Lima is a very scenic location with a narrow river valley cutting through steep sided mountain slopes. The area is heavily forested and hosts many wild animals but also very friendly locals!
The nearest town of Bagni di Lucca (10 kms) is a historic spa town at the meeting point of two rivers and has a good mix of restaurants,bars,cafes,supermarkets, small shops, banks, riverside walks etc The casino (original one in Europe) has recently been restored. There are all weather tennis courts, Olympic size swimming pool/outdoor lido and horse riding.
At Abetone and Cutigliano (22 kms away) there is skiing/snowboarding throughout the winter, and great walking country the remainder of the year.
