The Tuscany / Lucca Province region
What to say about Tuscany? I think most of the people knows something about......it's a marvellous region with very nice landsape, important historical towns, secret places just round the corner. One of the things that people doesnt know is that in Tuscany there are places that only a few people know about, so just pick up your car and take a road and go.........you will discover fascinating, amazing small villages up tothe mountain just close to us, in a word you will discover the real Tuscany and find small restaurant where you still can eat the fantastic local food.
The Lucca area
Lucca is one of the few towns of the world that keeps intact the wall fence around the town, beautiful churches (people from Lucca says more than one hundred), beautiful mansions, beautiful shops and what else.....just wandering around those very narrow medioval streets and you will find small shops, small restaurants. Lucca area still belong to Lucca's inhabitant, you don't fill like a tourist. Don't forget Puccini! During the summer you can have the opportunity to go to the Opera in Torre del Lago. And what about the modern music? In July in Lucca there is the Summer Festival with the most famous singers coming from all over the world.

Easy to find using coordinates on sat-nav. Lovely, spacious house, well-equipped for self-catering. Laid back and friendly family-feel. Well-maintained, clean with a lovely swimming pool. Safe for young children. Quiet but not made to feel out of place with children (x4!)
Lucca only 15 minutes away by car, Pisa half an hour.
Met a family from GB who had come to the same place for 21 years in a row- true recommendation.
Would have no hesitation in staying there again when I return to Tuscany. Gorgeous views.
Thank you Barbara.

This is a beautiful place in the countryside of Tuscany. It is located outside a small village but only an hour away from Florence and Pisa. After a hot busy day in Florence is absolutely wonderful to come back to the cool charming countryside.
The owners are very friendly and around if you need anything. They speak Italian, French, and English. The house is very charming and clean with modern bathrooms. My family has stayed in several houses on this property and they are all lovely. Many people return year after year because they enjoy it so much. It is a wonderful place to vacation and just take it easy. My family has vacationed there for over 10 years and my children now 19 and 22 still want to come every year. There are wonderful local places near to buy fresh bread every day, have coffee, in the local bar and eat in many rustic places. If you are trying to have the “Italian experience” this is your place. This is a place for all types of people both young and old.
