will have restaurants and shops at just a few steps away.

You will be on the hills of Montalbano, not far from the sea. Only 40 km (about

25 miles) away, you will find the small town of Viareggio, famous for its

splendid beaches. The scenery around the villa is one rich in hills, with

vineyards covering the lower areas, olive groves on the slopes, and woods of

chestnuts and oak trees on the top. The Chianti wine of Montalbano is produced

in the area and there are several wine cellars around.

Amidst the green, you will see elegant villas and beautiful farms which offer

hospitality to tourists: the area boasts many trails and cycling paths.

The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.

Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.

The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.

What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.

Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.

Lamporecchio

The charming village of Lamporecchio, located nearby the splendid naturalistic complex of Montalbano, offers the possibility to spend relaxing vacations with a perfect balance between nature and culture. You'll be able to combine great walks inside Montalbano with some visits to the local monuments, such as St Baronto Abbey (VII century AC) and the neoclassical Church of St Stefano.

The territory belonging to the current commune (from Montalbano to the marsh of Feucecchio) is been inhabited from the Roman Age. In the High Middle Ages the village was renowned for the passage of St Baronto and the subsequent birth of monasticism, and was mentioned after the year 1000 as feud of Pistoia's episcopate.

From 1244, Pistoia got entrusted with the jurisdiction of Lamporecchio. This fact was suddenly followed by years of violent disputes among Lucca, Pistoia and Florence in order to achieve the control of the town. Florence finally occupied Lamporecchio in 1531, a few years before the birth of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. Lamporecchio had to wait for long to obtain the long-desired autonomy. Its definite territorial conformation has been sanctioned only in 1897.

Until the middle 50's Lamporecchio preserved on the whole its rural origins, a part from some lovely workshops particularly flourishing into the footwear and food (with the production of the delicious typical "brigidini") sectors. A few decades ago Lamporecchio boasted the long lovely tradition of "making" dried flowers for ornamental compositions.

You'll find a good production of straw hats and stunning embroidery works: an ancient tradition still alive in places like San Baronto, Porciano, Papiano and so on...

As witness of this renowned activity, there's a special type of stitch known as "punto di Lamporecchio", born in the famous sewing school instituted by Laura Merrick.
