The Tuscany region

Here in Lunigiana you will experience a very relaxed tempo of a century or two ago - calm and unhurried. The restaurants serve traditional dishes made from local ingredients at at a bargain price. Many don't have menus. You have to listen carefully to what they are serving that day - or just say what what you would like, and they will endeavour to provide it. The food in this area is as good as you you will find anywhere in Italy.

Many of the ‘Borgos’, old hill villages, are worth a visit. Try just wandering through the village streets, saying buongiorno or buona sera to the people sitting around on chairs or doorsteps chatting in the sunshine. If you attempt a few words of Italian, they will always be pleased, and many of the youngsters will want to practise their English

The rhythm of the seasons still rules here. Tomatoes are 'passed' through sieves in the summer to make 'passata' for the year. Barrels are left to soak and swell in the street ready for the year's vintage.

In their time the olives and the chestnuts are harvested and processed in the 'cantine' beneath the village houses.

Funghi hunting is an obsession. Tens of kilos are collected by each family each year. The places where they are found are closely guarded secrets, though you have to have a licence to collect them. There is even a 'funghi' machine in one bar instead of a fruit machine!


Lunigiana is known as 'Land of the Hundred Castles'. Many are still standing others have been ruined by time. In Pontremoli Castle is a Stele museum - prehistoric stone statues that have been found in large numbers in this part of Lunigiana. They stare out at you from the past in a most impressive manner.

Lunigiana also boasts of being the Land of the Hundred Lakes, with wonderful scenic drives into the Appenines, making it splendid walking country..

At Equi Terme is a spa with natural hot water gushing out of the rocks. Treatments are available at the Spa centre. There are also trips into the spectacular caves, inhabited in mesolithic times.

The ski resort of Cerreto with a lovely lake and splendid scenery all around. Also Zeri, a collection of ski villages.

Just 40 minutes away is the old fishing port of Lerici, wih beaches and restaurants along the quay side. From here you can catch a boat to the famous Cinque Terre, old villages clinging to the cliff sides.

Lucca and Pisa are an hour away, and Florence 2 hours, by road or by train.

"Great villa at the top of the mountain"

This villa is lovely and fully equipped with a great pool. The views are beautiful and the restaurant down the road is fab. It's only negative is that's its a long way up the mountain so its perfect if you want to get away from it all but a long way away for sightseeing.
