Holiday cottage near Lucca  – Rustico Santa Croce is a charming holiday cottage tucked away in a peaceful corner of Tuscan countryside, half-way between Lucca and Camaiore, and within walking distance of the hilltop village of Orbicciano. Simply furnished, this house still has a strong rural character and most of its original features. Thick stone walls and old-style country furniture speak of a farming culture which will appeal to those wishing to experience an authentic Tuscan lifestyle. A recent addition to Rustico Santa Croce is the large private pool surrounded by a lawn; there are two covered gazebos for al fresco dining, and lovely views. A delightful annex with its own patio offers further privacy and comfortable accommodation for a couple. This region is renowned for its splendid and still unspoilt landscapes stretching from the dramatic Alpi Apuane range down to the Tyrrhenian sea, along the Versilia coast. A myriad of quaint rural villages serving local delicacies in their trattorie can be found in the area. Detailed maps with walking trails and ancient paths will help you discover the Garfagnana national park, an area of outstanding natural beauty where deer, wild boar, martens and eagles are protected species. Families travelling with children will love spending a day at the beach in one of the many resorts along the Versilia coast, Forte dei Marmi being the most elegant and exclusive; nearby Lido di Camaiore with its long sandy beach is another good option. As well as trying all sorts of water sports, here you can also browse trendy Italian designer shops or sit outdoors in a café and relax with a drink as you watch the world go by. The sea view is lovely and on clear days you can easily spot the islands of Gorgona and Capriaia, and even Corsica. And day trips for sightseeing in Pisa, Lucca and Florence should definitely be part of your plans!
