The Tuscany region
Located in central Italy, Tuscany is one of Italy’s best-loved regions. It combines a beautiful countryside reminiscent of the landscapes of Renaissance masterpieces, a rich artistic heritage including exquisite art and architecture, a glorious history, excellent wines and delicious food. Nearby drives the the Cities of Florence, Pisa and Lucca contain some of Italy's most famous artistic treasures. Tuscany is also home to many wonderful scenic hill towns.
Pescaglia & San Rocco in Turrite,
San Rocco in Turrite is a quaint little village in the heart of Lucca province, about 1 km away is the pretty village of Focchia. Mush of the area around is nationally protected so it' is great for walking, cycling and exploring natural sights. A bit further on (10 min drive) Pescaglia is a picturesque Tuscan Village in the Commune of Lucca, it is about 10 miles north of Lucca's Old Town. The village is nestled within the Apuan Alps mountain range which boasts stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The villages are all quiet, charming and full of character with local village shops and bars. The villages of San Rocco in Turrite, Focchia, Fabbriche Di Vallico and Via Fabbriche di Vallico all have lovely little restaurants. The restaurant Al Laghetto in via Fabbriche di Vallico in particular has a great reputation.
Bagni Di Lucca is also a short drive away - an attractive Village with restaurants, a Thermal Spa and a large public pool with diving boards set in the grounds of a Villa. Lucca, with its stunning walled 'old town' is a 35 minute drive from the house and has a range of attractions. There is also a local bus service to Lucca several times a day. Cycling around the Lucca wall is not to be missed!
Major cities like Florence is about 1 hour and 15 minutes drive, Siena 1 hour 30 mins and Pisa is 60 minutes away. a bit further on you have Milan (3.5 hour), Bologna (2.5 hour) and Rimin (3 hours) are all drivable. Often people fly into those airports and drive down.
The Beaches of Viareggio, and Forte Dei Marmi are an hour away by car with Camiore Beach about 50 minute drive away.
In summary there is so much in and around Alla Marginetta, for those who do not mind a bit of a drive it is easy to even to Milan for shopping. For those who love shoping try the Outlet Mall near florence (http://www.themall.it/en/), it is great for Itanlian designer shops at affordable prices, its about 1 hour 40 mins away.

"Prachtige villa in de heuvels bij Lucca"
Met twee gezinnen hebben we een fantastische vakantieweek gehad in deze bijzonder mooie villa. Het zwembad is prachtig. Onze kinderen hebben in het bos hout gesprokkeld en 's avonds een houtvuur gemaakt bij de vuurplaats. We hebben hiervan genoten.
Er zijn heel leuke restaurants op korte afstand van de villa. In Focchia is een zeer bijzondere plek waar grootmoeder Rita een geweldige maaltijd voor ons heeft gekookt.

"This is a beautiful house with every comfort imaginable in a wonderful location."
Villa Alla Marginetta is a luxurious property in a breath-taking location in Tuscany. It is so well-equipped, - from the kitchen to the outdoor dining areas to the pool area, that we wanted for nothing during the whole week we spent there. It caters for all age groups; there are swings, a slide, a sandpit and plenty of swimming aids for small children, and teenagers have the beautiful swimming pool, and a pool table. There are lots of things to do in the area;The Apuan Alps are easily accessible for climbing and bird-watching (including peregrine falcons and golden eagles). The spa at nearby Bagni di Lucca is well worth a visit, as is the beautiful walled town of Lucca. There are several very good restaurants within a couple of minutes drive. But, even if you feel like doing nothing at all, the Villa has everything that you could possibly need.

"A comfortable break in the hills of Tuscany."
The house was in excellent condition and the rooms were all very clean. The swimming pool is a huge bonus and the fact that it is a fresh spring pool meant there were no sore eyes! There are two excellent outdoor dining facilities along with great facilities for children, for example swings and a slide. There are also many inflatable devices such as lilos and armbands for the pool provided. The wifi provided was quite fast and very reliable. The pool table and bar are an excellent addition downstairs, giving guests even more entertainment to choose from. Overall this was a very comfortable stay away from the hustle and bustle of city life, with crystal clear skies and close to many walking routes nearby for avid hillwalkers.

"A first rate villa short of nothing and surrounded by peace and tranquility"
This newly renovated Villa provided our family with everything necessary to make our holiday relaxing, quiet and yet filled with family fun.There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out and find their own space if they wanted it but also provided the sociable spaces for us to come together. The pool table and bar area was perfect in the evenings and the outdoor space around the beautiful swimming pool was plentiful and we enjoyed long lunches around the table in the outdoor dining space.The views are stunning, surrounded by trees. If you want to get away from it all this is the perfect place.

"Peace & Tranquility"
We had a lovely stay in Villa Alla Marginetta, it is situated amoungst a lovely forest. With lovely walks and a if you are into cycling a great opportunity to explore and challange yourself on the bike and there is a lovely river nearby. The area is quite hilly so i would not recommend it with regard to wheelchair access or people with walking difficulties. There was no swimming pool when we stayed but was in planning for compleation summer 2013.
There are lots of lovely restaurants within walking distance.
