Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed

This is an ideal location for anyone who wants to rest, contemplate, enjoy good food or generally imbibe the historic atmosphere of a Medieval Tuscan village.

It is particularly well suited for honeymooning couples, or anyone who wants time away in peace with a loved one, a few close friends, or even time alone. A car is virtually indispensable for day trips to Lucca, Florence, Pisa, or the seaside.

One can also just read in our garden, and watch the bees buzz and the beans grow. People with bee allergies should skip the garden.

Further details indoors

Our house is within the walls of what is one of ten 'castellos' which constitute the Pesciatina Svizzera. Our 'orto' or kitchen garden, is on the outskirts of the village, in true Medieval fashion, where one can go and sun bathe, or lie in the shade of a gazebo and read, or pick some lettuce. It is by no means elaborate but its rustic charm and coziness appeal to many. We also have bees, so anyone with bee allergies should avoid the garden.

There is a community pool less than 10k down the road.

Further details outdoors

As this is a Medieval village, one can only drive to the house on a three-wheeled ape or ride a donkey. The car park is a few paces below the piazza. This arrangement makes for very good exercise, and a quiet environment for rest and sleep, as well as giving one the sense they have entered another age.

Further details

As the space is small, and the stone stairs require confident maneuvering, it is probably best not to bring toddlers, but rather children with with good sea legs, so to speak.

About this location

The Tuscany region

Welcome to the Svizzera Pesciatina! Our area is a large stone's remove from modern life, architecturally, psychologically, and physically.

However, in reality, we are less than an hour from Lucca, and just over an hour from Florence and Pisa, and the seaside, where all the usual attractions can be sampled.

Castelvecchio

Most of us who have come to love the area have discovered, however, that the best way to enjoy it is to stay put, eat well, read, take walks, and step out of one's usual routine for some genuine rest, good food and an intimate taste of rural Italy.
