Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany must be the most well-known Region of Italy with famous cities like Florence, Sienna, Pisa and lesser-known gems such as Lucca and Volterra.The most popular, and hence most expensive, area for living and holidaying is Chianti which lies between Sienna, Florence and Pisa. It is known as "Chiantishire" due to the large number of wealthy British ex-pats who have settled there, buying up huge palazzos and vineyards. The landscape is as seen in all calendars of Tuscany with soft rolling hills, olive groves, vast vineyards, hilltop towns and pencil-sharp cypress trees.But Tuscany has many other faces, including high rugged mountains, flat sandy beaches and smaller, tree-clad mountains. We are situated in the last type, in the small Pizzorne mountains just north of Lucca. We are in a tiny mountain-top village, so we have fantastic views all around of other small mountains and hills, deep river valleys and even the huge Apennine mountains towering in the distance. The largest ski resort in Tuscany, Abetone, is only 12 miles away. although it is considerably further to drive there around the winding roads and hairpin bends.

Brandeglio

Bagni di Lucca is a pretty little town, nestling in the Garfagnana mountain region between the golden beaches of the Tyrrehnian coast and the Apennine mountain range, with ski resorts such as Abetone. Both are only an hour's easy drive from Bagni di Lucca.The town is famous for its hot water thermal spas, which were first used by the early Romans and much later were developed by Napoleon Bonaparte's sister Elisa when she was governor here. Bagni di Lucca has bars, trattorias and restaurants and plenty of places to buy ice cream. There are also shops, supermarkets and banks. For leisure, in adddition to the obvious Spas, there are also public swimming pools, tennis courts and horse riding centres.Biking of all sorts is popular: road bikes, mountain bikes and even extreme downhill which involves hurtling down the grass-covered ski slopes at terrifying speeds!
