The Tuscany region

Tuscany is well known for its natural beauty, delicious food and good quality wines. The historic and culturally rich cities of Lucca and Florence are close to visit as is Barga with its unspoiled streets and squares full of great charm and its 13th century Cathedral.

A trip to the coast takes you through breathtaking scenery and the quarries from which Michelangelo sourced the marble for his famous works of art. Viareggio is a popular seaside resort adjacent to Torre del Lago where Puccini lived and worked in his final years.

Chifenti

This is a wonderfully unique setting! Located in the grounds of an old mill, some of which is still intact. There are still parts of the orginal aquaduct attached to one of the buildings, and the 'borgo' is set beside a stream, which cascades into little pools (lovely for cooling off in!). Internally there are working millstones.

There is loads of space for exploring, and walking and relaxing, and there is a feeling of pure peace, with just the sound of the stream cascading in the background.

Set high in the hills, overlooking countryside, and a mediaeval village below, and with the mountains in the background, this really is a heavenly location!

Whilst set in the depths of the countryside, amongst beech woods and chestnut trees, the site is located within walking distance of a couple of restaurants, and there is a reasonable selection within a 15 min drive too with more thereafter. There is also a little village shop in the local village, and each of the villages on the way down the hill have a little bar and shop too....The drive to the supermarket/hypermarket is less than half hour in both North and South of the valley.

If you can tear yourselves away from this little piece of paradise some distances for trips out are below:

Pisa - 1 hr 15 mins - visit the famous leaning tower and more besides.

Florence - just under 2 hours - great day out when it is not too hot. Visit the Uffizzi, Ponte Vecchio, Michelangelo's David, meander along the Arno.

Lucca - under an hour . A mediaeval fully walled city, often voted the best city in Italy! Cycle the fully intact walls, relax in the parks, have a cappuccino in many of the large piazzas watching the world go by... The birthplace of Puccini, you can go to an opera recital most evenings, dine in the many restaurants, visit the 99(!) churches, climb the towers or shop til you drop in the shaded mediaeval streets.....

Barga - a beautiful mediaeval town, well known for its arty feel, and its good restaurants. In high season there is often live music in the evenings, and there is an annual jazz festival. Beautiful views abound!

Castelnuovo - local market town 30 mins.

Grotta del Vento - Wind Caves - 45 mins

Parco di Levegliese - country adventure park with torrentismo/canyoning/rock climbing - 45 mins

Spa town of Bagni di lucca - 40 mins

And lots more besides!

"Perfection!"

We travelled a family of 3 initially, on a 3 week holiday. The scenery and location of the property was so stunning, that we invited both family and friends to join us! The house is newly refurbished, 4 floors, with enough bedrooms to house a big family/group. Easy access to big swimmingpool/pool area, which was a perfect way for us to relax. The property resides in an unspoiled area, and the view is towards purely nature. We can absolutely recommend this property to everyone wanting to experience the real Tuscany!
