Tuscany is the most popular region of Italy, famous for its wonderful climate, landscape, and art treasures.
The famous "art" cities of Florence, Siena and Lucca are huge attractions, whilst the culinary tradition is there to be savoured.
The area around the village of Villa Collemandina is without doubt one of the most beautiful parts of all Tuscany.
Garfagnana is the best area in Tuscany for walking.
We have links with an outdoor activities company who offer guided walks and climbing, mountain biking, canoeing and world class gorge walking.
The area is well known for its excellent value restaurants, using the best of local ingredients. A typical set lunch with 4 choices of pasta course, and 4 choices of main course costs only 10 Euros inclusive of bread, wine and coffee. It is possible to have a multi-course traditional Sunday lunch or dinner with ample wine, coffee and liquors for less than 25 Euros.
The local market town with good shops, excellent restaurants and wine bars, and a railway station, is only 4 miles away.
