Bagni Di Lucca

Whether you’re after adventure or seeking a serene sojourn, you’ll find something to suit you here. The beautiful countryside offers you every opportunity to sit under a tree and read a book, and equally to walk through the forest in search of cool air. Bagni Di Lucca presents a welcoming starting point to your Tuscan exploration, and the larger neighbouring towns offer an exciting chance to study the impressive architecture and lively culture of the region. There are a range of outdoor sports and activities to take part in nearby, such as horse riding, canoeing and skiing.

Guzzano (our hamlet) is a tiny little village perched on a hill around Bagni di Lucca. At the beginning of the XX century a lot of its inhabitants sought their fortune abroad. Most of their grandchildren still live outside Italy but come back here for holidays once in a while. Some English tourists bought a house in our village, following up a long tradition which dates back to the XIX century, when English poets or artists like the Brownings were literally enraptured with our surroundings.

Closest family run grocery store is at 2 km from us. They sell fresh bread and delicious "schiacciata" (flat bread) every day. Chez our neighbor farmers you can purchase eggs and seasonal vegetables (such as tomatoes, salad...).

Bagni di Lucca (at 5 km from our village), is a nice tourist resort, where you will find general stores, shops and sport centers (public swimming pool, tennis courts, chemist, supermarkets, etc.) and a beautiful spa, beloved destination of artists like Byron, Shelley, Puccini, Metternich and Radestsky. Traces of this glorious past are to be found in its monuments: the English Church, the Catene bridge, the Spa, the villas, the Casino (the first gambling house to be opened in Europe and nowadays a wonderful location for wedding receptions). The town provides some very good restaurants, where you can taste our traditional cuisine.

If you love being woken every morning at 0650hrs by the permenant Italian residents next door reving their 3 motorbikes to go to work then this is the place for you. They also have a dog which lives outside permanantly, it barks constantly which echoes around the valley, so if you love barking dogs this is also the place for you. We tried to sit by the pool one day but the barking dog was driving us nuts so we had to go out for the day. If you want a lie in the said Italian residents park their car right under the bedroom window so you can be woken by doors banging and the enging starting. On our last day (saturday) the residents didnt go to work so we got a rest from the motorbikes, however there is a swimming pool being built at the rear and we had the delight of listening to a digger all day. Not a very relaxing holiday.

Dear Sirs, first of all I would like to point out that the house where you stayed at is NOT the house you reviewed here but a house nearby which, although belonging to our group of properties, differs much in size and price. The noisy motorcyclists you described were actually our German guests staying at another of our properties. I did not notice they were so loud (and we slept nearby) but if I only had an idea of this problem I could have at least told them to park their motorbikes somewhere else. The puppy you mentioned is not leaving permanently outside, however I did tell our neighbours about the problem, and as I did not hear from you during your 4 days stay, I thought things were going better. The house where you stayed at is a nice cottage for two which overlooks a small idyllic square together with other four houses, three of which belonging to us. Most of the time there is not even my neighbours' car parked in the square (as the country road leading to it is fortunately too narrow for most of the cars). I can not ask them to stop closing car doors and starting the engine when they leave in the morning. As for our neighbours building the pool, it is weird how you managed to hear them digging on Saturday all day, as just on Saturday you left. However, I am sorry if they ruined you last day at our place. In about 10 years of activity I never had such unfavourable reviews from my guests which exclusively refer to our surroundings. We always do our best to please all our guests, even welcoming them after midnight and carrying their luggage for free as it happened with you (although we are not supposed to). Ours are self-catering “village houses”. The fact that there are neighbours here may be an advantage for some and for some others not. An isolated house is always a good option... Regards. Mrs. Francesca Giovannini
