The Tuscany region
Colognora di Pescaglia, 600 Mt above the mean sea-level, it's an enchanted corner of the middle valley of Serchio, surrounded by centenary chestnut woods and olive trees.
Its houses, mostly stone houses with relevant portals, the narrow streets and stone paved lanes, the great opening towards the South which allows to enjoy an amazing vista over the landscape and the small hamlets and, on clear days, up to the plain of Lucca, Capannori, Livorno and the sea; it's a village where one can breathe a warm and reassuring atmosphere of other times, well as a healthy air.
It's a real cure-all for relaxing moments and for discovering the benefits a life based on a "slow rhythm".
The village does not have shops, bars or restaurants and the goods are brought on alternate days or weekly by hawkers.
The closest restaurant is in Vetriano, which is less than 2 km far from the village, and it can be reach on foot as well. Various kinds of shops and supermarkets, bars, pastry shops and restaurants can be found in Diecimo or Borgo a Mozzano, which are 10-15 km far from the village.
Colognora can also be the base for daily trips. Lucca is only a 30-min drive from it, like the old thermal baths of Bagni di Lucca; Barga, the Garfagnana, the Versilia seaside and the Abetone mountains are only about one-hour drive from it. Not far from Colognora there are also some of the most interesting tourist cities in Tuscany as Pisa, Florence and Siena.
It is also a convenient base for sports activities in contact with nature such as trekking, Nordic walking, paragliding, mountain bike and horse riding, whose schools, masters and associations are all placed in villages nearby.
