Further details indoors

The small frontage of the house that overlooks the church square belies the spacious accommodation that is on offer.

The house is unusually large for a property of this type, both in the number of rooms available and their size. For example, the living room area is 45m sq.

Further details outdoors

Although small, Benabbio has everything required for day to day living with a small shop, tobacconists, bar/ restaurant and pizzeria (both of which we can personally recommend!).

During the summer months there is a small outdoor bar with tradional dancing area. Further afield, Bagni di Lucca offers many bars, restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias for different kinds of dining experiences according to your mood.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany has long been a favourite holiday destination with its historic cities such as Florence and Siena, stunning countryside, beautiful beach resorts and gastronomic reputation.

The village of Benabbio is situated in Northern Tuscany on the doorstep of the Apuan Alps. Within easy reach can be found the cities of Lucca (20 mins drive) and Barga (35 mins drive). Florence can be reached within 75 minutes.

Bagni di Lucca

Lots and lots to see and do around the region.

The area around Benabbio attracts walkers and cyclists as well as those more interested in sampling the local wine and food!

Bagni di Lucca has more than restaurants to offer! Visit the thermal spas and take a tour of the grottoes. Treatments are also available such as massage and beauty therapies. The thermal pool is also open to the public.

- October festivals for the chestnut, mushroom, and halloween the largest festival in Italy,

- May sees the stunning Azelea festival, many people come from all over the world to enjoy the flora

For those who like walking there are many marked trails that enable you to explore the area and visit enroute the 25 traditional Tuscan villages that make up Bagni di Lucca. For those who want more adventurous walking explore Orrido di Bottri National Park with one of the deepest gorges in Italy. The area is also famous for its caves and caverns, and guided underground tours of these can be booked locally.

The closest city is Lucca which offers a range of shopping and activities within its beautiful medieval city walls.

Lucca antique market is held on the third Sunday of every month in Piazza San Glusto and Piazza Antelminelli.

The Lucca Summer Music Fesival is fabulous. Concerts are held in Lucca throughout July in the evening. This year’s line-up includes Sheryl Crow, Chicago, Alicia Keys, and Leonard Cohen. Tickets can be booked at www.ticketone.it.

Abetone is the local ski resort approximately half an hours drive from Benabbio offering skiing and snowboarding facilities.
