The Tuscany region

Sitting with a chilled glass of wine in the fabulous infinity pool and gazing at the magnificent and dramatic scenery of Garfagnana can only but take one's breath away. Of the Villas for rent in Tuscany La Collina del Sole is a haven of escapism from today's busy world and the perfect destination for spending relaxed lazy days in this enchanting yet unspoilt corner of northern Tuscany. For the more energetic and the culture vultures, however, there is plenty to keep you busy if you can draw oneself away from the extraordinary cocoon that is La Collina del Sole. Mountain hikes, discovering the villages and hidden beauty of Garfagnana can be combined with trips to the nearby coast whilst the magical city of Lucca with its sophisticated shops, numerous churches and relaxed Italian feel is within easy reach.

Forte di Marmi a luxury resort town on the Mediterranean sea is within one hour's drive. Torre del Lago, 15 minutes West of Lucca and just North of Pisa, has an open air theatre overlooking Lake Massaciuccoli devoted to the performance of the works of Italian composer Giacomo Puccini whose operas include La bohème, Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Turandot


La Collina del Sole is located in North West Tuscany overlooking the Carrara mountains where Michael Angelo personally chose each marble block to create all of his statues including the David located in Florence (2 hours by car or train). The national park is dotted with small villages and inexpensive restaurants serving exceptional food. There are great walks offering easy rambles or challenging climbs.

The nearby market town of Castelnuovo Di Garfagnana is a bustling town of 6,000 people that hosts a traditional market on Thursday mornings and is full of family owned shops selling fresh produce. Barga with its Romanesque cathedral is another jewel of our area.

From June through to late October there are a series of exhibitions and festivals celebrating the local culture and artisanal production. Italy literally explodes with "Festas".

Thank you so much for your heartfelt review, the good news is that the beauty of La Collina del Sole and the area around it never fades! so it will feel like an old friend when you return in 2014. We have put a beatiful new sail shade for the pool so there is more shade if needed hence the young can chill for longer and perfect their tans with the salt water pool. We have also discovered some really great medieval based activities around us whcih should be fun to explore in 2014. The team is already planning a nice surprise for your return! Chrissie
