The village is surrounded by greenery at the foot of Mount Orma, dominated by the church of San Michele Arcangelo. The house is surrounded by nature, animal sightings are frequent, particularly several species of birds, hawks, hoopoe, Japanese Nightingale, foxes, badgers and hedgehogs. Nearby there is a breeder of farm animals, which leaves free animals in their precincts during the day, giving a characteristic note to the surrounding environment .

The surrounding places are very beautiful and allow you to walk in complete tranquility away from traffic. A few hundred meters from the Villa start many trails that allow you to explore the nearby hills, from where you can enjoy a full view of Lucca and its plain. For those who love the bike, the owner and his wife (both fans of this sport) will be happy to give you any useful informations on beautiful circuits in the area, both for mountain bikes and normal/racing bikes.
